In daily life, humans are bombarded with visual input. Yet, their attentional capacities for processing this input are severely limited. In my research, I investigate these processing limitations and how they could be circumvented in tasks that are either performed alone or in groups. In particular, for tasks that are performed alone, I investigate whether limitations in visuospatial attention can be circumvented by distributing information processing across several sensory modalities. For tasks performed in groups, I investigate how limitations of visuospatial attention can be circumvented by distributing task demands across co-actors. In addition, I investigate to what extent multisensory processing is influenced by social factors (i.e., by performing a multisensory task in the presence of others or jointly).
