We employ a wide array of cognitive neuroscience and psychological research methods, including behavioral psychophysics, fMRI, EEG, MEG, computational modeling, and TMS to investigate how attention affects visual perception.
We are located in the Cognition and Perception program of the NYU Department of Psychology and are associated with the Center for Neural Science in the lab of Professor Marisa Carrasco.
Does your child love science, computer games, and learning about the world? Our lab is currently conducting a study to investigate how visual perception develops in children, and we'd love to invite you to bring your child to participate!
