Research statement
Visual spatial attention is the capacity to select parts of the visual input for processing, while ignoring others. It is a fundamental aspect of our daily life. Previously, attention has been studied as a single occurrence that has a defined onset, a certain dynamic and decay. I study attention as we experience it, that is, as a continuous fluctuating capacity.
