Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
Research in my lab investigates how certain portions of the visual scene are selected for in-depth processing, while others are virtually discarded. We investigate selection by having observers perform a variety of tasks, including visual search, probe detection, change detection and target identification.
