Visual Search and Selective Attention (VSSA IV)

Visual Search and Selective Attention (VSSA IV)

Lab News
A wonderful experience in Visual Search and Selective Attention (VSSA IV), AMMERSEE, MUNICH, GERMANY (13.07 – 16.07.2018) VSSA  is one of the most important International Symposium in the cognitive neuro-sciences. Over the past decades, VSSA has become a core topic in the cognitive neuro-sciences, sparking an abundance of methodological and theoretical advances. In fact, the recent years have seen an exponential increase in published articles with keywords ‘visual search’, ‘visual attention’, and ‘visual working memory’! Thus, while there is a rapidly expanding research output, this engenders a growing need to keep the field together. To contribute to the latter is the main purpose of our symposium series, that is, (i) to bring together a group of world-leading scientists engaged in the field of VSSA, (ii)  who represent different theoretical stances and methodological approaches, (iii) the aim…

touching

Lab News
In her latest book "Of This World", Stella Pierides, writer and poet, includes a Haibun titled Touching, which was written in response to one of our recent research studies: Watching a real moving object expands tactile duration: the role of task-irrelevant action context for subjective time (Jia, Shi, Zang, & Müller, 2015). This is a new perspective on our scientific research. We reprint her haibun with her kind permission. Enjoy! Touching Imagine your left hand is being made to feel a brief vibration and you're being asked to estimate how long this vibration lasts. In one version of this scenario, you are holding a small ball in both hands; in another, your right hand is free. And in both versions, you see a safely suspended, potentially catchable ball moving towards you. Would…
