Elizabeth Hall

I am a graduate student in Psychology at UC Davis. I work with Joy Geng in the Integrated Attention Lab studying visual perception and memory in the human brain. I previously worked with Chris Baker in the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition at the NIH and with Doug Davidson at the Basque Center for Cognition, Brain, and Language.

hipporecall Distinct representational structure and spatial distribution for visual encoding and recall

bioRxiv, Under Review
We find representations of memory content during recall show key differences from encoding in granularity of detail & spatial distribution. Peak encoding & recall similarity is anterior to encoding peaks.

frontiers Eye Movements in Real-World Scene Photographs: General Characteristics and Effects of Viewing Task

Frontiers in Psychology, 14 January 2020.
We examined effects of viewing task on when and where the eyes move in real-world scenes during memorization and an aesthetic judgment tasks. Temporal- and distribution-level analyses reveal significant task-driven differences in eye movement behavior.

memrecall Drawings of real-world scenes during free recall reveal detailed object and spatial information in memory.

Nature Communications, 02 January 2019.
Participants studied 30 scenes and drew as many images in as much detail as possible from memory. The resulting memory-based drawings were scored by thousands of online observers, revealing numerous objects, few memory intrusions, and precise spatial information.
