Visual search performance is predicted by both prestimulus and poststimulus electrical brain activity (2016)
Journal Article
van den Berg, B., Appelbaum, L. G., Clark, K., Lorist, M. M., & Woldorff, M. G. (2016). Visual search performance is predicted by both prestimulus and poststimulus electrical brain activity. Scientific Reports, 6(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep37718

An individual's performance on cognitive and perceptual tasks varies considerably across time and circumstances. We investigated neural mechanisms underlying such performance variability using regression-based analyses to examine trial-by-trial relat...

The relational between spatial/motion perception and traits of visual vertigo (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Powell, G., Rushton, S. K., Derry-Sumner, H., Rajenderkumar, D., Clark, K., Bratton, L., & Sumner, P. (2016, September). The relational between spatial/motion perception and traits of visual vertigo. Poster presented at European Conference on Visual Perception

Visually-induced vertigo (‘visual vertigo’) is a condition where certain visual environments trigger dizziness and nausea. It is often attributed to dysfunction in visual-vestibular interaction, but the exact cause is unknown. We were interested in a...

Global motion influences the detection of motion-in-depth (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Clark, K., & Rushton, S. K. (2016, September). Global motion influences the detection of motion-in-depth. Poster presented at European Conference on Visual Perception

Detecting motion-in-depth is more difficult than detecting equivalent lateral motion (e.g. Tyler, 1971). Because there is an early averaging of left and right motion signals, some work suggests the two monocular signals could effectively cancel out w...
