Research in the Marois lab centers on the neural basis of attention in the human brain using fMRI and psychophysical tools. They are particularly interested in understanding the neural basis of attentional capacity limits (why can we attend only to very few objects at a time? Why can't we select or execute more than one task at a time?). They are also trying to understand the nature of the relationship between attention and awareness.
