The Ups and Downs of Visuospatial Attention

Indicative Funding
$352,000 over 3 years
Summary
The brain has a remarkable capacity to provide a coherent experience of the world by seamlessly integrating sights and sounds from different locations. It is only after brain damage, or when faced with a high attentional load, that our limitations gbecome apparent. I will investigate these limitations by determining how spatial location influences attention in relation to distractaibility, cross-modal input and emotionality. Eye tracking and physiological measures of arousal will be combined with traditional cognitive measures to provide a deeper understanding of spatial attention. This research will improve attentional models and develop innovative strategies to increase safety by decreasing inattention and distraction.
