In the Visuomotor Laboratory we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and psychophysical approaches to address questions about the role of attention in the selection of task-relevant features of the environment and movement plans to create successful goal-directed movements. Of particular interest is how this process changes across the age span or in certain populations with disordered attention.
