Attention Laboratory

Research Topic:
Research in the lab investigates how certain portions of the visual scene are selected for in-depth processing, while others are virtually discarded. We investigate selection by having observers perform a variety of tasks, including visual search, probe detection, change detection, and target identification.

Research Opportunities:
There are different ways to become involved in the lab. To find out about current opportunities, interested, dependable students are invited to send me: a resume, an unofficial transcript, and a cover letter describing why you would like to become involved in this research (plus your approximate #hours/week availability, and whether you are interested in volunteer positions and/or paid positions).
