Predicting user confidence during visual decision making (2018)
Journal Article
Smith, J., Legg, P., Kinsey, K., & Matovis, M. (2018). Predicting user confidence during visual decision making. ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems, 8(2), https://doi.org/10.1145/3185524

© 2018 ACM People are not infallible consistent “oracles”: their confidence in decision-making may vary significantly between tasks and over time. We have previously reported the benefits of using an interface and algorithms that explicitly captured... Read More about Predicting user confidence during visual decision making.

Estimation of functional connectivity from electromagnetic signals and the amount of empirical data required (2012)
Journal Article
Green, G. G., Holliday, I. E., Barnes, G. R., Nevado, A., Hadjipapas, A., Kinsey, K., …Green, G. (2012). Estimation of functional connectivity from electromagnetic signals and the amount of empirical data required. Neuroscience Letters, 513(1), 57-61. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neulet.2012.02.007

An increasing number of neuroimaging studies are concerned with the identification of interactions or statistical dependencies between brain areas. Dependencies between the activities of different brain regions can be quantified with functional conne...

The role of oscillatory brain activity in object processing and figure-ground segmentation in human vision (2011)
Journal Article
Kinsey, K., Anderson, S. J., Hadjipapas, A., & Holliday, I. E. (2011). The role of oscillatory brain activity in object processing and figure-ground segmentation in human vision. International Journal of Psychophysiology, 79(3), 392-400. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijpsycho.2010.12.007

The perception of an object as a single entity within a visual scene requires that its features are bound together and segregated from the background and/or other objects. Here, we used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to assess the hypothesis that coher...

Cortical oscillatory activity associated with the perception of illusory and real visual contours (2009)
Journal Article
Kinsey, K., Anderson, S. J., Hadjipapas, A., Nevado, A., Hillebrand, A., & Holliday, I. E. (2009). Cortical oscillatory activity associated with the perception of illusory and real visual contours. International Journal of Psychophysiology, 73(3), 265-272. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijpsycho.2009.04.004

We used magnetoencephalography (MEG) to examine the nature of oscillatory brain rhythms when passively viewing both illusory and real visual contours. Three stimuli were employed: a Kanizsa triangle; a Kanizsa triangle with a real triangular contour...

Dorsal stream associations with orthographic and phonological processing (2006)
Journal Article
Chase, C. H., Hansen, P. C., Kinsey, K., Hansen, P., & Chase, C. (2006). Dorsal stream associations with orthographic and phonological processing. NeuroReport, 17(3), 335-339. https://doi.org/10.1097/01.wnr.0000199467.39659.5b

Several studies have indicated a key role for dorsal stream processing in lexical decoding. To examine this relationship further, performance on orthographic and phonological reading tests was compared with both steady-state visual evoked potentials...

Magnocellular mediated visual-spatial attention and reading ability (2004)
Journal Article
Kinsey, K., Rose, M., Hansen, P., Richardson, A., & Stein, J. (2004). Magnocellular mediated visual-spatial attention and reading ability. NeuroReport, 15(14), 2215-2218

This study explores the relationship between attentional processing mediated by visual magnocellular (MC) processing and reading ability. Reading ability in a group of primary school children was compared to performance on a visual cued coherent moti...

Can the magnocellular pathway read? Evidence from studies of color (2003)
Journal Article
Chase, C., Ashourzadeh, A., Kelly, C., Monfette, S., & Kinsey, K. (2003). Can the magnocellular pathway read? Evidence from studies of color. Vision Research, 43(10), 1211-1222. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0042-6989%2803%2900085-3

A review of the neurophysiological literature suggests that the magnocellular pathway has adequate spatial-frequency and contrast sensitivity to perceive text under normal contrast conditions (>10%) and also is suppressed by red light. Results from t... Read More about Can the magnocellular pathway read? Evidence from studies of color.
