Fields of Study


My research falls in the domain of visual cognition.  I am interested in how humans  selectively acquire information from the visual field and how that information influences actions (and what happens to the ignored information).  The research uses methods that involve measuring attention, eye movements, limb movements, and electrophysiological responses (EEGs/ERPs).  A wide range of studies are conducted in the lab, including research on such topics as attention, inhibitory processes, consciousness, memory, motor control (eye and limb movements), perception, and aging.
