In the research on depth perception, the research team, coordinated by Fulvio Domini, professor of cognitive linguistic and psychological sciences at Brown University and senior scientist collaborator at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Italy, has shown that they could manipulate the distance at which adults accurately perceived depth, both through sight and touch, by tricking them into thinking they had a longer reach than they really do.
