Practitioners often use “learning by observation” when teaching new skills; however, there is limited research on how the brain – behavioural responses compare with “learning by doing”. We compared the brain responses when performing and watching a novel joystick-tracing task in three groups: a physical practice group, an observational practice group and a group that […] Read More

Welcome to the Perception-Action Lab!
The Perception-Action Lab is directed at understanding the neural correlates underlying perceptual-motor and social-emotional processing in infants, children and youth. It is directed by Dr. Naznin Virji-Babul, PhD, PT. The Lab uses a combination of behavioural measures and brain imaging tools (i.e. DTI, EEG, MEG, MRI) to probe the brain and investigate the patterns of brain activation as they relate to perceptual-motor and social-emotional development.
