Fougnie Lab

Despite our sophisticated brains with immense processing capacity there are strong capacity limits in what we can perceive, attend to, and remember about the world. Research in the Fougnie Lab attempts to characterize and understand the nature of these limits. The current focus of the lab is on visual attention and visual working memory processes.

The Fougnie Lab at New York University Abu Dhabi approaches these questions primarily through a mixture of psychophysics and computational modeling.
