Principal Investigator

 

Monica Castelhano

My primary research interests are visual attention and visual memory and how they function in our everyday lives.  Across various studies we investigate how people perceive, explore, search through and remember information from complex, natural stimuli (i.e., real-world scenes) using both behavioural and eye movement measures.
