Simon Nielsen is a ph.d. student in the Cognitive Systems group, where he is working towards characterizing visual attention using experimental studies. The project is particularly focused on the temporal aspects, such as when we have to shift attention between objects in the visual field. As part of the analysis the EEG method is used to examine the electrophysiological activity in the brain. Using these electrophysiological correlates of attention, a more precise result can be obtained from the empirical studies. In a broader perspective the understanding of attention is improved by reducing its dynamic to a well defined number of processes. Such understanding is fundamental to address the cognitive complications related to attention.
