I am interested in the attentional control processes that we use to flexibly control our perceptions, memories, and actions in our attempt to successfully complete tasks. Using a combination of behavioural studies and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging studies, I examine limitations in attentional control, how attentional control processes shape the world that we perceive, and the cortical mechanisms that underlie attentional control.
The Attention Lab contains three behavioural testing computers, an eye-tracking system, and several computers needed to examine functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging data sets.
If you are interested in joining the Attention Lab, please email me. Those with a background in Psychology, Neuroscience, Mathematics, or Computer Science are encouraged to apply. Programming experience (Matlab, C++) and/or experience with functional imaging would be a definite asset.
