New Vision Research paper!

Zuzanna, Masih and Clay published their first paper together about the influence of attentional priority on the precision of spatial working memory. In two psychophysical experiments they manipulated priority in two ways: by changing the probability of being tested on memorized locations and by changing monetary rewards for correct recall. The paper also includes a [...]

Lab R01 Grant Renewed!

The lab's R01 grant got renewed in March and will fund the lab for the next few years. Much thanks to NIH's National Eye Institute for their continued support of our lab's work. The goal of the proposed work is summarized below: Despite the widespread appreciation that the prefrontal and posterior parietal cortices (PFC/PPC) are [...]
