At the Queen's Visual Cognition Lab, our main interest is to study visual cognition in all its complexity. For this reason, our current focus is on studying real-world scene perception; specifically, how the perceptual and cognitive systems interact and deal with information in scenes.
In some sense, scene perception is a misnomer as it usually encompasses the perception and memory of scene information, as well as deployment of attention within a scene. We use both behavioural and eye movement measures to get at these questions.
We are currently looking for volunteer lab assistants who are enthusiastic about Cognitive Psychology and want to learn more about Vision Research. This is a perfect position for a 2nd year student interested in learning more about this field, or a 3rd year student looking to gain some experience in research. We have some great people working in our lab, and hopefully you're interested in contributing to our field of work.
If you are interested, please email our Lab Coordinator, Lesley Campbell, with your resume, your overall grade average, computer skills, and the reason why you would make an excellent volunteer.
If you would like more information about our research, feel free to browse around the website or drop by our lab at Craine 204.
