Timothy Daniel Sweeny
What I doI study visual perception. My goal is to understand how neural and cognitive mechanisms shape what people see, how perceptual processes guide social and emotional behaviors, and how consciousness works. I collaborate with clinical psychologists to examine how visual perception contributes to the experience of people with anxiety and autism spectrum disorder.
