  The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience welcome new Assistant Professor, Dr. Steve Mitroff. Dr. Mitroff received his Ph.D. from Harvard University and did postdoctoral training at Yale University in the Department of Psychology. His research examines the nature of persisting object representations and draws on both adult visual perception and infant cognition work. Questions that have been of interest include how does the visual system keep track of visual information as representing the same objects over time and motion, how are we able to detect that something has changed from one view of the world to the next, and what role does conscious awareness play in visual processing.
