Title: Blinded by emotion: How motivation and emotion shape what we see

Abstract: Your mind doesn't always see what your eyes see.  Despite deeply held intuitions, conscious perception does not depend solely on where we turn our eyes.  Rather, it is robustly influenced by expectations, motivations, and even emotions.  Given that people navigate the world with different priorities in mind and with different "affective styles", understanding such mechanisms can provide insight into why different people can witness the same event while perceiving it differently. In this talk, I will describe work in my lab that investigates how motivation and emotion help shape perception.
