I knew you were going to miss that: Predicting future visual search performance from initial search abilities (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, K., & Mitroff, S. R. (2013, November). I knew you were going to miss that: Predicting future visual search performance from initial search abilities. Poster presented at Object Perception, Attention, and Memory

A unique data source—hundreds of thousands of individuals who voluntarily played a smartphone game (Airport Scanner; Kedlin Company)—was used to assess predictors of visual search accuracy. Baseline performance was assessed on easy levels at the star... Read More about I knew you were going to miss that: Predicting future visual search performance from initial search abilities.

Attentional sampling of multiple wagon wheels (2013)
Journal Article
Macdonald, J. S., Macdonald, J. S. P., Cavanagh, P., & VanRullen, R. (2014). Attentional sampling of multiple wagon wheels. Attention, Perception, and Psychophysics, 76(1), 64-72. https://doi.org/10.3758/s13414-013-0555-5

Attending to a periodic motion stimulus can induce illusory reversals of the direction of motion. This continuous wagon wheel illusion (c-WWI) has been taken to reflect discrete sampling of motion information by visual attention. An alternative view...

Context matters: The structure of task goals affects accuracy in multiple-target visual search (2013)
Journal Article
Clark, K., Cain, M., Adcock, R. A., & Mitroff, S. R. (2014). Context matters: The structure of task goals affects accuracy in multiple-target visual search. Applied Ergonomics, 45(3), 528-533. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apergo.2013.07.008

Career visual searchers such as radiologists and airport security screeners strive to conduct accurate visual searches, but despite extensive training, errors still occur. A key difference between searches in radiology and airport security is the str... Read More about Context matters: The structure of task goals affects accuracy in multiple-target visual search.

Enhanced facial symmetry assessment in orthodontists (2013)
Journal Article
Jackson, T. H., Clark, K., & Mitroff, S. R. (2013). Enhanced facial symmetry assessment in orthodontists. Visual Cognition, 21(7), 838-852. https://doi.org/10.1080/13506285.2013.832450

Assessing facial symmetry is an evolutionarily important process, which suggests that individual differences in this ability should exist. As existing data are inconclusive, the current study explored whether a group trained in facial symmetry assess... Read More about Enhanced facial symmetry assessment in orthodontists.

Assessing visual search performance differences between Transportation Security Administration Officers and nonprofessional visual searchers (2013)
Journal Article
Cain, M. S., Biggs, A. T., Cain, M., Clark, K., Darling, E. F., & Mitroff, S. R. (2013).
