Please join us on 4/6 for a Developmental Science HOA with Dr.Matthew Schlesinger, Associate Professor of Psychology at Southern Illinois University and director of the SIU Vision Lab. Matthew Schlesinger received his graduate degree in cognitive development from the University of California at Berkeley in 1995. After spending a year as a visiting lecturer in psychology at Berkeley, Dr. Schlesinger received a Fulbright fellowship to study artificial life models of sensorimotor cognition with Domenico Parisi at the Italian National Research Council in Rome. Dr. Schlesinger continued his postdoctoral work in 1998-2000 with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts, studying machine-learning approaches to adaptive motor control.  He is currently involved in three areas of research:  (1) visual attention and spatial working memory in infants, children, and adults, (2) neural network models of early visual processing and oculomotor control, and (3) neural substrates of working memory and spatial-directed attention. 

RSVP “yes” if you want to add this event to your calendar.

  1. Really interesting HOA, Matthew Schlesinger. Thanks. Hopefully we can continue our discussion in the very near future! Here’s the link if you’re interested in picking up the Developmental Robotics book (see below). I have also provided the link to the upcoming ICDL-EpiRob Conference, as well as Dr. Schlesinger’s lab/faculty pages.
