Dr Reshanne Reeder


I am a postdoc on the multi-national grant "Tracing the Template".

PhD:  CIMeC, University of Trento, Rovereto, Italy, 2014
Thesis: The search template for object detection in natural scenes: Contents and characteristics, neural underpinnings, and individual differences

Research Interests
My research focuses on how internally generated knowledge shapes visual perception. Specifically, I am interested in the preparatory representations of features and objects activated prior to target detection in scenes or displays (the "search template": also referred to as "attentional set" or "target template").
