This theme specialises in studying visual attention and perception from both theoretical and applied perspectives. We have expertise in experimental approaches, eye-tracking, and cognitive neuroscience. Key areas of research from our group concern visual search, attentional control, change detection, multi-tasking, the interactions between emotion and visual cognition, visuomotor control, and cognitive styles. Our research has been funded by the British Academy/ Leverhulme Trust, the ESRC, the Technology Strategy Board, the Experimental Psychology Society, and the British Psychological Society, and we have applied our research to a range of fields including driving, web usability, and media use.
