    • A Common Mechanism for Perceptual Reversals in Motion-Induced Blindness, the Troxler Effect, and Perceptual Filling-In. 

      Devyatko, Dina; Appelbaum, L Gregory; Mitroff, Stephen R (Perception, 2016-10-03)
      Several striking visual phenomena involve a physically present stimulus that alternates between being perceived and being "invisible." For example, motion-induced blindness, the Troxler effect, and perceptual filling-in ...
    • Action video game playing is associated with improved visual sensitivity, but not alterations in visual sensory memory. 

      Appelbaum, L Gregory; Cain, Matthew S; Darling, Elise F; Mitroff, Stephen R (Atten Percept Psychophys, 2013-08)
      Action video game playing has been experimentally linked to a number of perceptual and cognitive improvements. These benefits are captured through a wide range of psychometric tasks and have led to the proposition that action ...
    • Improved Visual Cognition through Stroboscopic Training. 

      Appelbaum, L Gregory; Schroeder, Julia E; Cain, Matthew S; Mitroff, Stephen R (Front Psychol, 2011)
      Humans have a remarkable capacity to learn and adapt, but surprisingly little research has demonstrated generalized learning in which new skills and strategies can be used flexibly across a range of tasks and contexts. In ...
    • Improvement in visual search with practice: mapping learning-related changes in neurocognitive stages of processing. 

      Clark, Kait; Appelbaum, L Gregory; van den Berg, Berry; Mitroff, Stephen R; Woldorff, Marty G (J Neurosci, 2015-04-01)
      Practice can improve performance on visual search tasks; the neural mechanisms underlying such improvements, however, are not clear. Response time typically shortens with practice, but which components of the stimulus-response ...
    • Mapping the structure of perceptual and visual-motor abilities in healthy young adults. 

      Wang, Lingling; Krasich, Kristina; Bel-Bahar, Tarik; Hughes, Lauren; Mitroff, Stephen R; Appelbaum, L Gregory (Acta Psychol (Amst), 2015-05)
      The ability to quickly detect and respond to visual stimuli in the environment is critical to many human activities. While such perceptual and visual-motor skills are important in a myriad of contexts, considerable variability ...
    • Object files can be purely episodic. 

      Mitroff, Stephen R; Scholl, Brian J; Noles, Nicholaus S (Perception, 2007)
      Our ability to track an object as the same persisting entity over time and motion may primarily rely on spatiotemporal representations which encode some, but not all, of an object's features. Previous researchers using the ...
    • Rare targets are rarely missed in correctable search. 

      Fleck, Mathias S; Mitroff, Stephen R (Psychol Sci, 2007-11)
      Failing to find a tumor in an x-ray scan or a gun in an airport baggage screening can have dire consequences, making it fundamentally important to elucidate the mechanisms that hinder performance in such visual searches. ...
    • Sensorimotor Learning in a Computerized Athletic Training Battery. 

      Krasich, Kristina; Ramger, Ben; Holton, Laura; Wang, Lingling; Mitroff, Stephen R; Gregory Appelbaum, L (J Mot Behav, 2016-09)
      Sensorimotor abilities are crucial for performance in athletic, military, and other occupational activities, and there is great interest in understanding learning in these skills. Here, behavioral performance was measured ...
    • Stroboscopic visual training improves information encoding in short-term memory. 

      Appelbaum, L Gregory; Cain, Matthew S; Schroeder, Julia E; Darling, Elise F; Mitroff, Stephen R (Atten Percept Psychophys, 2012-11)
      The visual system has developed to transform an undifferentiated and continuous flow of information into discrete and manageable representations, and this ability rests primarily on the uninterrupted nature of the input. ...
