Personal profile

Research Interests

 Much of my past research concentrated on a classic problem in perception: How do we perceive the visual world as unified, stable, and continuous despite the frequent disruptions caused by movements of the eyes? I addressed this question by examining what people remember from a single glance at a scene, and by examining how people combine information across eye movements. More recently I investigated the effects of eye movements on cognitive processing; it turns out that eye movements actually interfere with some cognitive processes but not with others. In retirement I am studying waves, music, and the Russian language.
