Howard E. Egeth, PhD

Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University

 

Howard E. Egeth is a professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Johns Hopkins University, with joint appointments in Cognitive Science and Neuroscience. He is a cognitive psychologist whose main research interests are in the general area of attention and perception. Some of his early work focused on issues of parallel and serial processing of distinct objects in the visual field as well as of the perceptual features that compose visual objects.  He is also well known for work on attentional selectivity and on the roles of top-down and bottom-up processes in the allocation of attention. In some recent work he has pointed to the role of ignoring as an active inhibitory process (and not simply the absence of attention); he has called this “the dark side of attention.”

Selection Process

Is there an eminent, senior scientist to whom you would like to pay tribute, while simultaneously demonstrating your support for the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior? Through the FABBS Foundation "In Honor Of..." program, individuals can make donations that recognize senior scientists for his or her achievements and contributions.

The FABBS Foundation Board will periodically select honorees who have been nominated by their peers. These individuals will receive recognition on our website, including a biographical sketch, photograph, and listing of those who contributed to the honoree's campaign. This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone who has had a lasting impact on our sciences.

We encourage you to submit nominations for the "In Honor Of..." program to the Executive Director.
