Course Content

The format of the seminar will be a discussion of one or two target

week will be "classic" articles representing early and/or important
studies on a specific topic or recent new papers in attention and eye
movements. For the presentations, each student has to present the main
findings of the target article for that week. Students have to prepare a
15 minute oral presentation in Microsoft Powerpoint. The rest of the
class will be spent discussing the target articles. The presentation
will determine 30% of the course grade for each student. The target
papers will be available via Canvas. Each student will also submit a
review paper on one of the topics covered in class. The paper will be
