In B-REAL (The Becker-Remington Eye Movement & Attention Lab), we investigate the properties of visual selective attention — our ability to focus on certain visual information while ignoring the rest — and eye movement control. The Lab is jointly led by the fiery Stefanie Becker and the fearless Roger Remington, and we are interested in a variety of topics revolving around attention and eye movement control. We are known for our work on involuntary attentional capture, especially the role of goal-driven and stimulus-driven factors in attentional capture, and tuning of attention to relative features. However, members of the lab are working on a diversity of topics, covering the range from cleverly designed behavioural experiments to neuro-physiological methods (EEG, fMRI, TMS, tDCS).
