Viola Stoermer is Assistant Professor in Dartmouth's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Her research aims at understanding the cognitive and neural mechanisms of human perception, attention and memory. Particularly, she is interested in understanding the fundamental principles of selective attention, how attention shapes perception, and the capacity and structure of visual working memory. She also explores the role attention plays in connecting across sensory modalities to form multimodal objects. Her research draws on a variety of methods, including psychophysics, experimental psychology and functional neuroimaging with a particular focus on EEG (electroencephalography).
