This is to facilitate the pursuit of research into the effect of attentional cues on visual stimulus processing. The research project is ongoing and investigates the capacity limit on identifying multiple letters, and investigates when attentional cues trigger attention via a time-consuming process versus when they instead facilitate identification by binding to the stimulus features.


Open to domestic and international students. Experience with formal and computational models of cognition and visual processing a plus. Experience with null-hypothesis and significance testing, Bayesian statistics, Python, and R programming also beneficial.
