James L. Dannemiller


The Dannemiller Lab conducts research directed toward understanding the relations between genes and visual attention. Certain neurotransmitter related genes have been associated with specific aspects of visual attention using tasks like the Attentional Network Test (ANT). Our lab uses its own tests of visual attention, and we have recently demonstrated several new gene/attention associations. We are also interested in the development of visual attention during the period of infancy. We use behavioral methods to try to understand how the processes responsible for visual selection develop. By comparing studies with infants and adults we seek to gain a better understanding of the changes that take place in these vitally important processes.
