Professional Title: 
PhD (Cognitive Science)

Professor Spivey's research interests include: Interaction between language and vision, Sentence processing, Word recognition, Visual attention, Visual memory, Eye movements, Computational modeling. Using an eyetracker and simultaneously recording the streaming x,y coordinates of the subject's computer mouse movements, he gets an online measure of some of the probabilistic representations (or "tentative interpretations") that get computed in real-time as the subject attempts to integrate various sources of visual and/or linguistic information.
