PhD in Psychology Remember Novel Visual Information

Cardiff University, UK is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position. Applications are welcome before March 17, 2019.

This research will investigate how visual information is temporarily remembered, possibly making use of eye movement patterns and pupillometry, and behavioural dual-task interference manipulations.

Working memory (WM) theories describe processes engaged when thinking, including temporarily holding information in mind and using that information. We currently understand how verbal information (eg new sequences of words) is briefly remembered better than we understand how visual information (eg abstract patterns of colours or shapes, sequences of spatial locations) is remembered.

You will aim to apply new findings about remembering visual materials to compare models of WM and suggest ways of better specifying WM models.

Deadline: March 17, 2019
