Cognitive Neuroscience of Attention
"Raymond Klein"

I joined Dalhousie’s Psychology Department in 1974 after earning my PhD working with Mike Posner at the U. of Oregon. The concept of attention has been at center stage for me, and I have been funded by Canada's Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), continuously since 1975, to study it. I have a general interest in most of the topics subsumed under the banner “cognitive psychology” and, influenced by Hebb's view of psychology, have actively pursued a range of strategies seeking to understand how cognitive processes are implemented in the brain (cognitive neuroscience). I believe that applying the powerful methods
we have developed to understand how the mind works to real-world problems is a worthwhile, if not necessary, endeavor. Reflecting this commitment my first sabbatical was spent at Bell Telephone Laboratories (in Saul Sternberg's Department of Human Information Processing) and I have conducted contract research for Canada's Department of Defense (how random are our spatial choices?) and the Bank of Canada (how good is our money), have consulted with the U. S. Federal Reserve Board, and have taught and testified about perceptual and cognitive factors that might influence the accuracy of eyewitness testimony.
