About the Course
The course will begin with an historical overview of ideas about attention and a survey of the variety of methods for studying it. The course will then explore how these tools have been applied within studies of attention implemented within Posner’s seminal taxonomy (epitomized by the Attention Network Test, the ANT) and its outgrowths.
Throughout the course the students will be encouraged to connect the basic concepts and research methods with practical questions such as: How dangerous is texting while driving? Can video-game training remediate the effects of normal aging? Are billboards road hazards? What networks of attentions are affected in different neurological disorders and can these be remediated?
