Research Overview

 

Visual attention & perception

  • attentional selection of features, feature-conjunctions and space
  • temporal dynamics of attention
  • top-down / bottom-up interactions in attentional selection
  • distraction by emotionally arousing stimuli
  • visual attention and ageing
  • multiple object tracking
  • crowding
  • flanker interference
  • colour vision

Short-term memory

  • common mechanisms of attention in perception and memory

Electrophysiology

  • steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEPs)
  • oscillations
  • time-frequency analysis
  • single trial analysis
