Brais Gonzalez Sousa is a PhD student in the Lifespan Developmental Neuroscience group as part of the 6G-life project at the TU Dresden. Since December 2021, he is working on his current project that investigates mechanisms of plausible multisensory augmentation. Concretely, Brais is interested in how affective touch is spatiotemporally integrated into a unitary percept and how this process changes across the lifespan. Prior to his PhD, Brais completed his bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Bremen and his M.Sc. in Cognitive Affective Neurosciences at the TU Dresden. His master thesis investigated age-related differences in processing boundaries.
