Welcome to the Visual Attention Lab!
PI: Dr. Jeremy Wolfe
Work in the lab focuses on:
Preattentive vision - Studies of the processing of visual stimuli before they are selected by attention for further, more complete analysis.
Attentional deployment - Studies of the mechanisms by which attention selects specific items including studies of how to terminate searches without finding the target.
Post-Attentive vision - Studies of the consequences of attention. Once attention has been deployed to an item and has been removed, what are the persistent effects of that act of attention?
Real-world applications - Studies of visual search behavior in tasks such as airport security and medical screening.
