We examine how controlled measurements of visual perception (psychophysics) can be extended to realistic stimuli and situations. This research investigates how humans detect simple or basic visual features (such as edges) within a natural environment and how factors such as attention can modulate performance. We use a combination of behavioural, psychophysical and eye tracking tools.

More recent research addresses basic issues of social neuroscience, investigating how good we are at making judgements of other people's gaze and facial expressions.
