Border ownership selectivity in human early visual cortex and its modulation by attention
(Society for Neuroscience, 2009)
Natural images are usually cluttered because objects occlude one another. A critical aspect of recognizing these visual objects is to identify the borders between image regions that belong to different objects. However, ...
Perceptual averaging in individuals with autism spectrum disorder
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2016)
There is mounting evidence that observers rely on statistical summaries of visual information to maintain stable and coherent perception. Sensitivity to the mean (or other prototypical value) of a visual feature (e.g., ...
Set similarity modulates object tracking in dynamic environments
(Springer New York LLC, 2018)
Based on the observation that sports teams rely on colored jerseys to define group membership, we examined how grouping by similarity affected observers’ abilities to track a “ball” target passed between 20 colored circle ...
Comparing the response modulation hypothesis and the integrated emotions system theory: the role of top-down attention in psychopathy
Objective Two major etiological theories on psychopathy propose different mechanisms as to how emotional facial expressions are processed by individuals with elevated psychopathic traits. The Response Modulation Hypothesis ...
Fearful faces do not lead to faster attentional deployment in individuals with elevated psychopathic traits
(Springer New York LLC, 2017)
In the current study, a gaze-cueing experiment (similar to Dawel et al. 2015) was conducted in which the predictivity of a gaze-cue was manipulated (non-predictive vs highly predictive). This was done to assess the degree ...
Biased competition in semantic representation during natural visual search
Humans divide their attention among multiple visual targets in daily life, and visual search can get more difficult as the number of targets increases. The biased competition hypothesis (BC) has been put forth as an ...
