Members of the MAP lab conduct experiments investigating human visual perception and attention. We are interested in how expectations, motivations, and individual differences can influence sensory input and selective attention. We also investigate the role of cognitive training in enhancing sensory and cognitive processing. We measure behavior (using response time and accuracy) and brain activity (using EEG) to uncover the psychological and neural basis of attention. Undergraduate and graduate students in my lab can receive training in a variety of methods, including the use of a computer-based experimental psychology laboratory, and the design, implementation, and analysis of ERP studies of the human visual system.
Please note: I am currently accepting graduate thesis students.
