S P O T T: SPatial Organisation of aTTention
The aim of this project is to explore and measure the spatial span of attention spatially, in such a way as to characterize its modifications upon task demands and pathology. When a distortion of the spatial distribution of attention is identify in a patient, a copensatory filter can be used for rehabilitation exercices.
Romeo Salemme (see members) has developped and mplemented an experimental set-up using the VSG (Cambridge Research Systems) allowing to track any attention field across saccades.
