    Schall's research aims to understand how the brain guides and controls actions by monitoring the signals in the frontal lobe during performance of visual search and countermanding tasks. His current work is addressing these questions: How does the brain choose where to look? How does the brain produce attention and awareness? How does the brain control whether and when to produce a movement? How does the brain know when it makes a mistake?
