DATE: 02 May 2008
LOCATION: Room 302/303 McElwain, 3-4 pm

TITLE: Eye movements and the deployment of attention in older adults
ABSTRACT:
In conjunction with traditional measures like RT, a series of studies examined the eye movements made when observers learned to search simple and more complex visual displays. In many studies, older and younger adults were compared. The outcomes of these studies provide challenges for contemporary theories of visual attention. They also demonstrate that older adults are quite capable of flexibly and efficiently allocating attention to task-relevant features.
2) Speaker: Professor John Coley, Northeastern University, Boston and Visiting Senior Fellow, School of Psychology, UNSW.
