Welocome to Yoni Pertzov's Visual Cognition Lab


  • The questions that motivate our research all revolve around visual cognition and mostly around eye movements and visual memory. Specifically, we are interested in

    • What leads different individuals and clinical populations scan the same scenes differently

    • How individuals' specific scanning characteristics influence their opinion, attitudes and decision

    • How eye movements relates to individuals' specific memories

    • How memory related scanning patterns can be used for revealing concealed information

    • How do we maintain visual information that is no longer present?

    • What are the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying forgetting in healthy people and patients with brain disorders?


  • We are engaged in investigating these topics using various research methods including neuroimaging and behavioral experiments, in healthy individuals and patients with neurological disorders.
