Research Summary

My lab studies visual attention, visual memory, perceptual learning, executive control, and object recognition. Functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques are employed to understand the neural mechanisms for visual perception and cognition. Recent work has focused on neural mechanisms of perceptual memory and how attention regulates perceptual learning in the human brain. In addition, my lab studies the role of attention in perceptual awareness.
