Research

The LoCAS lab conducts studies on topics associated with visual cognition, attention, and search. In addition to basic laboratory research, the LoCAS lab also investigates the application of those topics to areas not typically examined by the vision research community. The work done to date focuses on the applied visual search task of lifeguarding, although other applied domains may be considered in the future (video-game play, baggage screening, etc.).
