Attention and Memory
The events of everyday life are filtered through our attention, and this selection largely determines what we remember later. The research team aims to study this interaction between attention and memory, to explore the underlying brain processes and to investigate deficits in both systems in different patient populations. In our experimental work, we use the traditional tools of experimental psychology, complemented by eye-tracking and pupillometry.
Investigating how uncertainty and environmental change is detected and encoded by our brain, and how this affects later memory of specific events.
Examining, how attentional processes are recruited during the retrieval of previously encoded information.
Exploring the changes in attentional and memory processes in normal and pathological aging using psychological tests and psychophysiological indices.
Developing new, open source tools for pupil size measurement.
We presented our research on the conference of the European Society for Cognitive Psychology in Porto. Talk by Peter Pajkossy and Poster by Ádám Albi can be downloaded here.
