My current research is on the mechanisms that underlie our ability to avoid getting distracted by salient stimuli in visual search tasks. For example, is it possible to avoid looking at the distracting advertisement while reading on a website? If yes, how and when do we do it? I try to answer these questions by using behavioral data such as reaction times and eye movements, and neural data such as event-related potentials (ERP/EEG). During my Masters, I investigated whether implicit probability cueing of locations influences attentional capture by masked stimuli.
