This is the Research Lab website for the Lundwall Development
of Visual Cognition Lab. Dr. Lundwall is a faculty member in the
Psychology Department of Brigham Young University and
is additionally affiliated with the Neuroscience Center at BYU.
Our research focuses on tracking developmental changes in
cognitive abilities, such as attention, and investigating how these
changes impact behavior, including academic success, the development of social
problem-solving, and other functional skills. We are particularly interested
in genetic influences on reflexive attention (attention to suddenly appearing
stimuli), but are also interested in the interaction of environmental and
genetic influences. We are hopeful that our research will eventually lead to
more effective interventions that prevent or minimize developmental problems
with cognition. If you are interested in participating in our research,

If you are a researcher working in a similar field (such
as the genetics of cognition or visual attention), then you may find the
Research pages most helpful including the Current Projects
page and the Past Projects
page. These pages include information regarding publications and
presentations of Rebecca Lundwall's various projects.
Finally, this website may be helpful if you are interested
in genetics, development, and/ or visual attention generally. In this case,
feel free to browse around, but the links on the Resources page may
be particularly helpful.
