I’m researching the ability to distinguish between what you're seeing that's actually out there in the world, and the images that are internally generated (through cognitive processes like memory or imagination). In order to function successfully, it is imperative to make that distinction between external reality and internally generated imagery. Specifically, my experiments examine the interaction between working memory (internally generated imagery) and a detection task (which relies on externally generated imagery). I'm researching how the ability to detect a stimulus is affected by whether or not the stimulus matches the content of your working memory.
