Human Attention Laboratory

Lab Overview

The Human Attention Laboratory (HAL) focuses on investigating the potential of techniques such as gaze behaviour (i.e., eye tracking), high-density electrophysiological recording (i.e., EEG), optical imaging (i.e., fNIRS), and interventional methods (i.e., tDCS) to better understand how different contexts (e.g., high pressure, task monotony, mild cognitive impairment) influence an individual's ability to maintain focus and/or perform during cognitively demanding tasks (e.g., competitive esports, active lifeguarding). HAL serves a diverse range of populations, including individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early-onset dementia, elite esports competitors, lifeguards, military personnel, and students.

If you are interested in collaborating, or feel a laboratory member could support your own research please email Dr Benjamin Sharpe at b.sharpe@chi.ac.uk.
