Research Areas: Systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, neurophysiology, vision, attention, perception
The Visual Perception and Attention Lab is focused on understanding how the brain, which processes different features in different areas, can bind those features into a perceptual unit: the object, and select that object for perception or action. Current projects include:
- the relative strengths of different features in forming an object representation;
- spatial attention;
- inhibition of return;
- object–based attention;
- cross–modal attention.
