Vision and Cognition

The student will investigate the (serial) perceptual grouping process in the human brain and the role of attention in perceptual grouping. Experiments will also aim to identify the neural mechanisms underlying perceptual grouping and object recognition. Depending on the student’s interest and duration of the internship, the student will be involved in a visual perception experiment which involves: task design, testing participants, and data analysis. The student also participates in weekly group discussions and lab meetings.
