My name is Rachel and I am from the Psychology Department at the University of Guelph. I am conducting a study that examines how attention and memory guide visual processing.
This research explores how our current goals (e.g., trying to find a friend wearing a red sweater in a crowd) and past experiences (e.g., knowing that our friend likes to stay near the edges of crowds), ultimately shape how attention is deployed in different visual environments.
Your participation would involve 1 hour session in the Visual Cognitive Neuroscience Lab located at the University of Guelph. During this session, you will make responses to simple visual or auditory stimuli presented on a computer. This project has been reviewed by the Research Ethics Board (REB#20-06-039) for compliance with federal guidelines for research involving human participants, and the principal investigator is Dr. Naseem Al-Aidroos.
You will be compensated $10 for a 1-hour experiment in appreciation for your time.
Potential participants should have normal or corrected to normal vision as well as not be colour blind.
