Dr Jason Rajsic

Assistant Professor

Department: Psychology

In most situations, there is more information available than we can, or do, make use of. I am broadly interested in how and when we selectively process some of this information that suits our goals, particularly in the case of vision. In my research, I take an experimental approach to testing how we use attention and memory in visual tasks (e.g., visual search).

I completed my MSc in Canada with Daryl Wilson (Queen's University) and my PhD with Jay Pratt (University of Toronto) and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University with Geoff Woodman before joining Northumbria University in 2019.

My research focuses on the cognitive processes that help us control what we attend to and remember. To investigate these processes I make use of behavioural measures, eye-tracking, and electroencephalograpy (EEG).
