Previous Seminars

Seminar 1: Eye movements, Language, and Development
Location: University of Central Lancashire
Date:
5th July 2022
UCLAN logo 900.jpg

This first seminar will mark the official launch of the North West Visual Cognition group and will be fully face-to-face. The selected presentations will illustrate one of the core principles of our group by focusing on the importance of investigating and explaining human behaviour using robust, scientific methodologies and psychological theory.

 

This first seminar will focus on how the use of eye tracking has informed the field of human language processing and development. In this seminar we will not only consider psychological processes associated with human language comprehension (reading, speech perception), but also how those processes develop with age.

Seminar 3: Visual cognition and Spectatorship
Location: University of Salford - Media City
Date: 24th March 2023
Salford logo 900.jpg

The third seminar will explore factors that influence spectatorship across a number of domains. Spectatorship has not been studied extensively but an understanding of it is critical to developing models of how knowledge and expertise influence the way in which we represent the world. Current work will be presented on the exploration of cognition and eye movements during spectatorship of pictorial art, improving perception and visuomotor control in elite sport, and visual search during active and passive navigation through familiar and unfamiliar environments.
