      Alley, L. M.; Schmid, A. C.; Doerschner, Katja (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2020)
      Many objects that we encounter have typical material qualities: spoons are hard, pillows are soft, and Jell-O dessert is wobbly. Over a lifetime of experiences, strong associations between an object and its typical material ...
    • From hate to love: how learning can change affective responses to touched materials 

      Cavdan, M.; Freund, A.; Trieschmann, A.-K.; Doerschner, Katja; Drewing, K. (Springer Science and Business Media Deutschland GmbH, 2020)
      People display systematic affective reactions to specific properties of touched materials. For example, granular materials such as fine sand feel pleasant, while rough materials feel unpleasant. We wondered how far such ...

      Toscani, M.; Yücel, Ezgi I.; Doerschner, Katja (Sage Publications, 2019-12)
      Image motion contains potential cues about the material properties of objects. In earlier work, we proposed motion cues that could predict whether a moving object would be perceived as shiny or matte. However, whether the ...

      Ürgen, Buse M.; Topaç, Yasemin; Üstün, F. Seyhun; Demirayak, Pınar; Oğuz, Kader K.; Kansu, T.; Saygı, S.; Özçelik, Tayfun; Boyacı, Hüseyin; Doerschner, Katja (Elsevier, 2019)
      The occipital lobe contains a substantial part of the neural machinery involved in visual perception. Mutations in the LAMC3 gene have recently been shown to cause complex bilateral occipital cortical gyration abnormalities. ...
    • Identification of a novel missense mutation in RAD51 in a large family with congenital mirror movements 

      Onat, Onur Emre; Gülsüner, Süleyman; Bilgen, R.; Dal, G. M.; Bilguvar, K.; Boyacı, Hüseyin; Doerschner, Katja; Uysal, H.; Günel, M.; Özçelik, Tayfun (American Society of Human Genetics, 2012-11)
      Congenital mirror movements (CMM) are a rare and heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by involuntary contralateral movements of mainly the upper extremities during intentional movements on the opposite side. ...
    • Kandinsky or me? How free is the eye of the Beholder in abstract art? 

      Braun, D. I.; Doerschner, Katja (Sage Publications, 2019-09)
      We investigated in “art-naïve” German and Chinese participants the perception of color and spatial balance in abstract art. For color perception, we asked participants (a) to adjust the color of a single element in 24 ...
    • The look and feel of soft are similar across different softness dimensions 

      Cavdan, Müge; Drewing, Knut; Doerschner, Katja (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2021-09-28)
      The softness of objects can be perceived through several senses. For instance, to judge the softness of a cat's fur, we do not only look at it, we often also run our fingers through its coat. Recently, we have shown that ...
