Visual Cognition Lab


The Visual Cognition Lab investigates basic and applied questions in human vision, attention and perception. We use behavioural paradigms, eye tracking, computational modelling and online experiments to study how humans interact with the visual world around us. 


Psychophysical, Behavioural and Eye Tracking Research

How does the visual system suppress irrelevant distractors? How do stimulus characteristics and prior experience influence visual search?


Computational Methods

Models of visual attention, eye movements and decision-making


Applied Research

From the lab to the real-world: translational research on optimising airport security screening procedures
