Geoffrey F. Woodman

Associate Professor of Psychology

Geoffrey Woodman's research examines how mechanisms of visual attention and visual working memory influence how we interact with the world around us. Specifically, how the primate visual system performs figure-ground segregation, attentional deployment during the processing of complex scenes, temporary storage of information in visual working memory, and cognitive control during task performance.
