Space Time and Number in the Brain (STANIB) is a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Project, awarded for 5 years from August 2009. The total funding from the ERC is about €2.4 million.
The primary aim of this project is to establish in Tuscany a European Centre of Excellence dedicated to frontier, interdisciplinary research of human perception, synergizing existing research efforts in Italy. The centre focuses primarily on the human visual system (and its development), but also studies key issues of cross-sensory integration.
The project is divided between three laboratories: the Department of Neuroscience, Psychology, Pharmacology and Child Health of the University of Florence (the Host Institution); the Stella Maris Foundation (Pisa); and the CNR Institute of Neuroscience (Pisa).
