Dr. Robison's research examines some fundamental questions regarding the human cognitive system. He focuses largely on two core cognitive abilities: attention control and working memory. More specifically, his research tries to understand why people differ in these cognitive abilities. Why is it difficult for people to sustain and control their attention? How do our attention and memory systems interact to give rise to complex cognitive processes? He is particularly interested in determining what psychological and neural mechanisms that drive individual differences in cognitive ability. To answer these questions, he uses a combination of experimentation, psychophysiological measurement (e.g., EEG, pupillometry), and individual differences methods (e.g., factor analysis, linear mixed modeling, structural equation modeling).
