Lateralized Attention in the Brain Top-Down versus Bottom-Up Biases in Human Search Behavior

Internationaler Workshop unter Leitung von Dr. Thomas Töllner (CAS Junior Researcher in Residence).

26.03.2015 – 27.03.2015

The past decade has seen a surge in event-related lateralization (ERL) studies on visual selective attention − the ability to filter a limited amount of behaviorally relevant information out from the plethora of task-irrelevant perceptual inputs that travels down the optic nerve. This gain is associated, in part, with the contralateral organization of the human visual system, which makes the event-related potential technique highly suitable for isolating attention-related visual activity. The overarching goal of this workshop is to foster the dialogue between a selected group of leading experts in the field who provided inspiring new insights into the neural mechanisms of visual search and selective attention.

Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Søren Andersen (Aberdeen), Clayton Hickey (Amsterdam), Steven J. Luck (UC Davis), Veronica Mazza (Rovereto), Iris Wiegand (Kopenhagen).
