Dr Robert Udale
I have previously worked as a research assistant in the feature binding and face recognition labs at Bournemouth University. I completed my PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol in 2017. I started working as a postdoctoral research associate in Masud Husain’s lab in 2018.
I am interested in understanding the roles of attention and decision making in retrieval from visual working memory. In my recent research, I have been using behavioural experiments and computational modelling methods to understand spatial feature binding – how we use spatial information to inform recognition decisions (e.g., was this object old or new?) we might have recently encountered. Currently, I am investing how encoding demands, such as distraction, influence subsequent retrieval later on.
