Research in the DIEM project is focused on understanding human vision during complex real-world scene perception. Because human visual perception involves active information seeking via eye movements, much of the work in the lab focuses on eye movements and human gaze control.
Topics of interest in the lab include fast scene recognition, visual search in natural scenes, visual memory and scene representation, eye movement control during static and dynamic scene viewing, and the integration of visual and linguistic information in natural contexts.
We are also interested in computational approaches to these questions and implementation of underlying processes in the human brain as revealed by neuroimaging techniques such as pupillary response, fMRI and ERP.
