Two Ph.D. positions are now available at the Human Neuroscience and Visual Cognition Lab at the Department of Psychology, Wright State University beginning Fall 2015. The newly established lab is headed by Dr. Assaf Harel and investigates high-level vision and its neural substrates. We are interested in how visual recognition occurs in real-world settings and adopt a neuroergonomic approach to study the applied aspects of high-level vision. For this purpose, we employ a diversity of cognitive neuroscience methods, including EEG, fMRI, and psychophysics. Topics of research include visual expertise, object and scene recognition, categorization and perceptual learning.
For more information on the lab, contact Dr. Assaf Harel at: assaf.harel at wright.edu.
The Department of Psychology is housed in the College of Science and Mathematics, offers a Ph.D. in Human Factors and Industrial/ Organizational Psychology, and has 3 undergraduate concentration areas: (1) Cognition and Perception, (2) Industrial/ Organizational, and (3) Behavioral Neuroscience. Wright State University was recently ranked among the "Best in the Midwest" universities by The Princeton Review, listed among 260 Best National Universities in the annual "America's Best Colleges" rankings by U.S. News and World Report, and ranked fourth nationally among universities with limited numbers of doctoral programs in the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index.
