Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Perception

Jan Theeuwes mainly focuses on Cognitive psychology, Visual search, Perception, Cognition and Eye movement. His studies deal with areas such as Stimulus, Visual perception, Attentional control and Visual attention as well as Cognitive psychology. His Visual search study incorporates themes from N2pc, Intertrial priming, Communication and Stimulus Salience.

His study focuses on the intersection of Perception and fields such as Automaticity with connections in the field of Vigilance and Stimulus onset asynchrony. When carried out as part of a general Cognition research project, his work on Working memory is frequently linked to work in Disengagement theory, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Eye movement research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developmental psychology and Motor control.

His most cited work include:

  • Perceptual selectivity for color and form. (1145 citations)
  • OpenSesame: An open-source, graphical experiment builder for the social sciences (937 citations)
  • Top–down and bottom–up control of visual selection (786 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Cognitive psychology, Visual search, Perception, Eye movement and Cognition. His Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Visual attention, Stimulus, Working memory, Task and Visual perception. The various areas that Jan Theeuwes examines in his Task study include Statistical learning and Selection.

His research investigates the link between Visual search and topics such as Salient that cross with problems in Salience. His Perception research also works with subjects such as

  • Communication which is related to area like Color vision,
  • Inhibition of return most often made with reference to Cued speech. As part of his studies on Cognition, Jan Theeuwes often connects relevant areas like Developmental psychology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cognitive psychology (57.03%)
  • Visual search (26.14%)
  • Perception (22.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cognitive psychology (57.03%)
  • Statistical learning (8.12%)
  • Task (13.86%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jan Theeuwes mainly investigates Cognitive psychology, Statistical learning, Task, Visual search and Stimulus. His work in the fields of Cognitive psychology, such as Salience, intersects with other areas such as Singleton. Jan Theeuwes usually deals with Task and limits it to topics linked to Speech recognition and Information processing.

His work carried out in the field of Stimulus brings together such families of science as Attentional control, Perception, Visual cortex and Electroencephalography. Sight is closely connected to Internet privacy in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Perception. His research investigates the connection with Cognition and areas like Pupillary response which intersect with concerns in Eye movement.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Selection history: How reward modulates selectivity of visual attention. (117 citations)
  • Statistical regularities modulate attentional capture. (96 citations)
  • Visual Selection: Usually Fast and Automatic; Seldom Slow and Volitional (69 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Cognition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Neuroscience

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cognitive psychology, Stimulus, Task, Statistical learning and Working memory. His research integrates issues of Visual attention and Perception in his study of Cognitive psychology. Jan Theeuwes combines subjects such as Adaptive memory, Communication, Eye movement, Associative learning and Attentional control with his study of Stimulus.

His Task study combines topics in areas such as Q-learning, Value, Bayesian hierarchical modeling, Bayesian probability and Value. His Short-term memory and Visual short-term memory study in the realm of Working memory connects with subjects such as Trade offs. Jan Theeuwes has researched Visual search in several fields, including Eye tracking, Cognitive science, Distraction and Selection.
