    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.
