Current Areas of Research
Attention and Distractibility: In much of our recent research, we have explored attentional competition and distractibility. Participants engage in visual tasks that vary in difficulty or emotional content, and we examine their brain responses to distractor tones played in the background. We are finding that differences in the task increase or decrease the degree to which people are distracted by the background tones.
Memory and Emotion: In collaboration with Dr. Rod Vogl, we are looking for patterns of brain activity that may be related to how people react emotionally to personal memories.
