Research in the lab centers on the neural basis of attention and information processing in the human brain using fMRI and psychophysical tools. We are particularly interested in understanding the neural basis of attentional capacity limits (e.g. Why can we only attend to very few objects at a time? Why can’t we select or execute more than one task at a time?). We are also interested in understanding the relationships between attention, working memory, and awareness.
