Catching up!

I recently had the opportunity to present at Graduate Education Day in Santa Fe, NM at the capitol building! I was selected by the Dean of the Graduate school to present my research on expertise in visual search.

GED 1

I was happy to represent NMSU at this event and educate our legislators about all the amazing research we are doing in the lab.

VSS 2016!

The lab recently returned from the Vision Sciences Society meeting in St. Pete’s Beach, FL. We presented several posters and a mini talk. It was a great time catching up with friends and spending some time on the beach 🙂

 

Cranking out that research!

Congrats to my fellow lab members and Dr. Hout for all of the VSS presentation acceptances!

I will present research I completed last semester examining pupillary reflexes during categorical search. Here is a list of our upcoming presentations:

Lopez, A., Bennett, G., Robbins, A., Godwin, H. J., & Hout, M. C.  (2016, to be presented).  Find one fast, or find them all slow: Do collaborative visual searchers search more quickly or more thoroughly?  Poster to be presented at the Vision Sciences Society 2016 Meeting in St. Petersburg, Fl (May, 2016).

Madrid, J., Cunningham, C. A., Robbins, A., Godwin, H. J., Wolfe, J. M., & Hout, M. C.  (2016, to be presented).  Exploring the nature of mental representations in hybrid visual and memory search.  Poster to be presented at the Vision Sciences Society 2016 Meeting in St. Petersburg, Fl (May, 2016).

Also, congrats to Jessica Madrid who recently published her first book chapter!!
