Research in the Icelandic Vision Lab focuses on all things visual, with a major emphasis on higher-level or “cognitive” aspects of visual perception. Current and/or past research has looked at several visual processes, including visual attention, eye movements, object perception, face perception, visual memory, visual statistics, and the role of experience/learning effects in perception. Some of our work concerns the basic properties of the workings of the typical adult visual system. We have also studied the perceptual capabilities of several unique populations, including children, synesthetes, professional athletes, people with anxiety disorders, blind people, and dyslexic readers.
