Author Information

Hal Pashler has been Professor of Psychology at University of California, San Diego since receiving his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1985. In 1999, the National Academy of Sciences awarded Pashler the Troland Research Award "for his many experimental breakthroughs in the study of spatial attention and executive control, and for his insightful analysis of human cognitive architecture." Pashler's research has examined selective and divided attention, mechanisms of human learning and the question of how learning can be made more efficient, and visual awareness, among other topics.
