*Attention and Awareness II: A Festschrift in Honor of Robert Rafal*
Friday, March 22, 2019
2121 Berkeley Way, Psychology Building, University of California, Berkeley,
This series of talks will cover historical and contemporary perspectives on
the neural basis of attention and awareness. Speakers will pay special
tribute to the contributions and influences of Professor Robert Rafal, a
cognitive and behavioral neurologist whose career focused on better
understanding the neural underpinnings of attention, consciousness, eye
movements, and perception. During his highly influential research career so
far, Professor Rafal has elucidated important and distinct roles of the
superior colliculus, thalamus, and the temporo-parietal junction in the
orienting of attention, and also demonstrated unconscious processing in
blindsight and hemispatial neglect.
Speakers include Bob Knight, V.S Ramachandran, Chris Rorden, Anne Sereno,
and Patrik Vuilleumier, among others.
