About

In the last twenty years there's been a gradual shift towards thinking about perception, attention and learning as processes that traditionally occur in environments that are multi-sensory in nature. My research interests lie in how these processes are affected by the multisensory character of such stimuli (cf., stimuli possessing emotional valence). More specifically, I am interested in multisensory processes as sources of processing bias towards multisensory audiovisual objects that are based on temporal co-occurrence (Matusz & Eimer, 2011), pure task-relevance (Matusz & Eimer, 2013), or preference for conspecific objects (Matusz, Thelen, Cappe, Knebel, & Murray, in prep.), and how these affect learning (Thelen*, Matusz* & Murray, 2014). I am also interested in how these biases might change across age as they dynamically interact with other developing mental processes. I use a combination of behavioural, electrophysiological and developmental approaches to study the neural and cognitive mechanisms by which multisensory processes faciliate perception, bias attentional selection and shape learning.
