About our research

We are interested in how the different senses are combined to make sense of the body and the world around it - and how poor sensory integration can affect health and wellbeing, leading to disorders of body perception and action.

Using the MIRAGE mediated reality device and other illusions, Dr Roger Newport and his colleagues at Loughborough build academic and stakeholder partnerships to better understand pain or investigate deficits in autism as well as trying to understand everyday sensory and motor processes across the lifespan.
