Research InterestsAttentional processes in word recognition, Neuropsychology of spatial attention
Opportunities For StudentsI am accepting students. Here is a brief statement of what we are doing -- let me know if you need any additional information. Research areas focus on attention in general and cognitive control mechanisms more specifically. Current studies involve computerized data collection of response times in experiments in which participants must switch rapidly among several relatively simple tasks. Experience with the e-prime program will be a benefit but is not required.
