Biography

Gilden's research interests cover a number of topics in perception and cognition. Visual attention, working memory, and 1/f noises in biological systems are three areas of current concentration. The research in this lab is strongly influenced by the recognition that good data is harder to come by than theory in Psychology. Gilden is a Professor in the Department of Psychology and a member of the Center for Perceptual Systems.
