Attention & Conscious Perception
Life Sciences Building 103
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Does attention alter conscious perception? For example, does visually attending to an object make it look bigger, brighter, or otherwise alter the properties that it looks to have? Psychologists have been debating these questions at least since the 19th Century when William James and Gustav Fechner staked out opposing answers. Over the past decade, interest in this debate has renewed as psychologists and neuroscientists have developed new experimental methods to address these questions, and philosophers have leaned on their results to draw conclusions about the nature of attention, consciousness, and perception. This workshop aims to advance our understanding of these issues by bringing together an interdisciplinary group of researchers to discuss their approaches and findings.
