Research Interests

Melisa is a fourth year PhD student. Her research focuses on human auditory and visual perception, and attentional processes in the temporal domain. Melisa uses behavioral and EEG methods to understand how we orient attention to specific points in time, generate expectations about timing of events, and how auditory and visual perceptual processes are altered with temporal expectation.
