Short info

Our lab loves making a scene, which is why our research focuses on investigating the rules that govern object and scene perception. We are particularly interested in how scene grammar guides visual attention, boosts object perception/memory, and allows us to efficiently extract semantic information from scenes within the glimpse of an eye. Our overarching goal is to better understand human cognition while acting in real-world environments. For that purpose, we use a mixture of methods, including psychophysics, eye-tracking in real and VR environments, computational modelling as well as EEG.
