Visual Processing outside the focus of attention and awareness
Tatiana Aloi Emmanouil,Assistant Professor of Psychology, investigates the cognitive and neural mechanisms of vision in humans. Her work spans the fields of visual attention, awareness and memory as it attempts to understand how we process, store and experience the complex visual world that surrounds us. Professor Emmanouil received a BA in Psychology from UC Berkeley, a PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience from Princeton University under the tutelage of Anne Treisman, and worked as a postdoc at CUNY with Tony Ro. Her work, inspired by psychological theory, is based on behavioral experiments. She examines brain activations using current neuroimaging tools such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and electroencelphalography.
