CCN Colloquium presents Joy Geng

February 23, -
Speaker(s): Joy Geng, PhD (UC Davis)
Professor Geng's research focuses on how goal-directed and sensory-driven information are integrated to determine what we perceive. The purpose of her work is to understand the mechanisms of attentional control that flexibly balance the ability to select task-relevant information and suppress irrelevant distractors. She is interested in both the neural and cognitive processes involved and use fMRI and eye-tracking combined with response time and accuracy measurements.
