Adriane E. Seiffert
Assistant Professor of Psychology
Adriane Seiffert's research is directed towards understanding how visual information that changes over time is assimilated into mental representations that direct actions. Traditional investigations in psychology have emphasized the static; for example, how people recognize objects, how people remember lists, or how people attend to images. Now is the time to move forward by recognizing that these abilities are inherently dynamic and exploring the active nature of recognition, memory and attention. In the Perception, Attention and Control lab, Seiffert and her colleagues are learning how the attributes people see shape where they attend, how they look and what they expect to see later.
