Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI); attention; memory; decision making; executive control; perception
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.
