Abstract:

In this project, we studied how people make decisions in fast, attention-demanding visual tasks. We used a combination of behavioral measurements, mathematical modeling, and eye position recordings. We used visual search tasks, in which human observers either categorized or detected a target object in a briefly presented scene that also contained distractors, and change detection tasks, in which observers detected a change between two scenes separated by a delay period.
