Attention Brain& Cognition Lab (Room 691)
In my lab we study the relationship between brain structure and cognitive processes, using a variety of approaches including computational modeling and cognitive neuroscience (with behavioral, eye movement, and EEG/ERP measures). Current focuses of the lab research include understanding eye movement behavior and underlying cognitive processes through hidden Markov modeling, how different learning experiences influence perceptual expertise acquisition, and how different expertise domains influence each other.
RESEARCH INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
– Project Title: “Understanding eye movements in cognitive tasks using EMHMM (Eye Movement analysis with Hidden Markov Models)”
In this project, we will conduct eye tracking studies and analyse eye movement data using the EMHMM methodology, a machine learning based approach for eye movement data analysis. We will apply this methodology to understand eye movement patterns in research on face recognition, facial expression recognition, visual word recognition, and reading.
Good communication skills in English or Cantonese; experience in conducting psychological experiments; good grades in cognitive science, cognitive psychology, and research method related courses. Preference will be given to those with eye tracking experiences, or computational background/programming experience in Matlab.
