Our attention to tasks is often compromised. Having a limited ability to focus means that we may fail to report a novel object or see a change in an existing object that we examine. In this class, we will explore the topics of inattentional blindness and change detection. This discussion will include the factors that influence our ability to pay attention, practical applications of this field, and whether novices and experts differ in their ability to detect changes.
Heather Beauchamp has taught “Cognitive Psychology” and “Learning and Memory.” She is interested in learning more about attention and our recollection of material. Heather has conducted research on change detection and false memories. In fall 2016 she taught a SOAR course on Exploring Sensation and Perception.
