Our current research has three overarching goals:
① How do attentional mechanisms affect spatial and temporal aspects of visual processing in neurotypical adults, children, and special populations, including adults with ASD, ADHD, and amblyopia?
② How does the interaction of covert attention and eye movements affect visual processing?
We employ a wide array of methodology, including psychophysics (eye movements), neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG, EEG), neurostimulation (TMS), and computational modeling.
We investigate the relation between the psychological and physiological mechanisms involved in the basic processes of visual perception and attention. The theoretical framework for our research draws from work in perception, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology and neurophysiology.
