The research in this lab, which is directed by Dr. Adrian Staub, uses eye movements to investigate the cognitive processes involved in reading and language processing. Working with other members of the UMass Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, members of other departments at UMass, and collaborators at other universities, we also investigate topics such as visual search, attention, and memory. The lab contains three SR Research Ltd. Eyelink trackers: an Eyelink II, an Eyelink 1000, and an Eyelink 2K. The lab also contains equipment for behavioral experiments on the processing of written and spoken language.
We are located in 206 Tobin Hall, 152 Hicks Way, Amherst, MA, 01003. Our phone number is 413-545-5952.
Students can sign up to participate in our experiments through the SONA system.
