David Souto, PhD
I am lecturer at the School of Psychology of the University of Leicester, United Kingdom.
My research is focused on understanding visual processing on the move. Vision is best understood as an active process. Let’s imagine you are crossing a crowded street. In that situation and many others the visual system realizes two critical tasks with apparent ease. One is the selection of relevant information, either covertly – a process we call selective attention – or overtly, by orienting our eyes, head or bodies. The second and related task is to generate a stable visual representation of our immediate environment in spite of continuous translation and rotation of our eyes. I investigate those two questions by combining psychophisical and oculomotor measurements in controlled situations. You can find more about this strand of research on my publications page.
If you are interested in getting involved in the lab research, feel free to send me an email to discuss possible projects and funding opportunities.
