Psychology Expo and Reception - Friday, October 26th from 2-3:30pm
Join us in the Psychology Department (2125 G St., NW) for a showcase of our latest research! Faculty and their labs will be on hand to do demonstrations and share some of their work. Undergraduate and graduate poster presentations, alumni meet-and-greet, student advising about the psychology major and career options in psychology, and more! Light refreshments will be served.
Immediately afterwards, join us at the Marvin Center (800 21st Street, NW) for an interesting talk by cognitive neuroscience professor, Dr. Sarah Shomstein:
"When Your Eyes Fail You: Mechanisms of Selective Attention" with Professor Shomstein - Friday, October 26th from 4-4:50pm
Marvin Center, Room 307
Professor Shomstein will talk about the limitations of the human perceptual system and the cognitive and neural mechanisms that are in place in the brain to deal with these failures. Professor Shomstein will argue that our perception is a direct by-product of brain’s architecture, and will demonstrate evidence showing that attentional selection is a mechanism that the brain uses to organize the incoming perceptual input.
We look forward to seeing you there!
