Psychology professor to explain eye movement in ‘Where’s Waldo?’ lecture
DANBURY, CONN. — Western Connecticut State University Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Bernard P. Gee will discuss the role of retinal cells in humans’ ability to search and navigate efficiently through our surroundings during a research lecture at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, in Room 125 of the Science Building on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. The talk will address the previously unanswered question of how eye movements are affected by brain circuits when a human is looking for something, such as in the book, “Where’s Waldo?” The event is free and open to the public. There will be a reception to follow.
Gee earned bachelor’s degrees in psychology and biological sciences from San Jose State University, and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of Rochester. His research has focused on brain circuits involved in visual perception, learning and memory.
