Basic Cognitive Processes (802)


I study how people stay on task, as when they are interrupted by a phone call and have to resume the interrupted task afterwards. My methods include behavioral experimentation and cognitive modeling (closed-form and simulation). I'm also interested in model evaluation techniques and in questions of memory, attention, and cognitive control generally.
