The Cutaneous Communication Laboratory at Princeton

Carl E. Sherrick (1925-2005)


Carl's pix

      Dr. Carl Sherrick, one of the founding members of the laboratory retired, but continued to hold the rank of Senior Research Psychologist until the laboratory closed in 2004. In his final years at the lab, his activities dealt directly with sensory saltation presented on dense arrays as well as with intermodality perturbations, particularly on the temporal resolution of brief stimuli. An understanding of such interactions among modalities would be of considerable interest in a situation where the individual is being presented with information from various, possibly conflicting, sources.
Despite his "retirement" in 1991, he often was found in discussion with the members of the laboratory on research matters, and continued to contribute to the Tactile Research community by reviewing papers for professional publications and grants for government agencies. Carl passed away late in 2005.
