Science

AttentionLab, is the research group headed by Stefan Van der Stigchel. It is part of the Department of Experimental Psychology of Utrecht University. The aim of AttentionLab is to study ‘attention’ and ‘visual awareness’ in their broadest terms in the healthy population but also in a clinical setting. In AttentionLab, attention and visual awareness is studied using various methods, such as obstacle avoidance, eye movement recordings, lesion overlap and flash suppression. These functions are studied in various patient populations, like hemianopia, visual neglect and Korsakoff’s syndrome. The aim is to provide a rich interaction between experimental psychology and neuropsychology with the ultimate goal to solve the puzzle about how we create a perception of our world. The research conducted by AttentionLab is partly supported by a VIDI-grant, awarded by NWO.
