Visual Cognition Lab

The Visual Cognition Lab investigates how information about the visual world is acquired, identified, retained in memory and manipulated by the cognitive system to support thought and to guide behavior.

Research Topics

Eye-Movement Control

This NSF-funded project focuses on eye movement control in real-world scene perception from behavioral and computational perspectives, with a focus on the control of fixation duration during scene viewing.

Neural Correlates of Eye Movements

Neural Correlates of Eye Movements, Attention, and Visual Cognition. This project focuses on the neural correlates of eye movements, attention, and visual cognition in scene perception and reading using co-registered eyetracking and fMRI to conduct fixation-related (FIRE) fMRI.

Individual Differences in Natural Reading

This project is directed toward understanding individual differences in natural reading using eyetracking as the primary method.
