Brad Wyble studies visual cognition with an emphasis on exploring how a visual stimulus becomes a consciously accessible representation. His work incorporates theories of temporal attention and consolidation of memory representations as well as the capture of attention by task relevant stimuli. His goal is to understand how the neural mechanisms underlying attention and memory interact to allow us to make sense of the world around us. His research uses a combination of behavioral and electrophysiological data collection to provide constraints on neurocomputational models of the visual system.
