Professor Abrams (Attention and Performance Lab) conducts research on aspects of perception, attention, and motor control. His work addresses questions about the mental mechanisms that underlie overt movements of the eyes and limbs and covert movements of visual attention. One ongoing project focuses on the role of perceptual objects in attention and action; another examines the types of visual stimuli that can capture attention.
