“Iowa City is a nice place to live, especially when you're in grad school. It's similar to many other college towns in being very progressive and full of well-educated people.”
Invariant properties of human perception and information processing, with an emphasis on the underlying neural mechanisms
Examination of invariant properties of human perception and information processing across visual, auditory and tactile modalities, with an emphasis on the underlying neural mechanisms. Studies include work on pattern recognition in speech perception and on the role of attention and feedback mechanisms. The lab also is working on micro-processor based assistive technologies for individuals with developmental and acquired disabilities which limit mobility and speech.
