From Fragments to Geometric Shape: Changes in Visual Object Recognition Between 18 and 24 Months
Current Directions in Psychological Science October 2009 18: 290-294, doi:10.1111/j.1467-8721.2009.01654.x
- Why do we expect that the processes underlying visual recognition will change between ages 18-24months?
- What is the relationship between the object-naming period of childhood and whole-object representations of geometric shape?
- How does a child shift from fragmented representation to three-dimensional representations of shape?

Object Recognition: Insights From Advances in fMRI Methods
Current Directions in Psychological Science April 2008 17: 73-79, doi:10.1111/j.1467-8721.2008.00552.x
- What parts of the brain are involved in object recognition? What is the best neuroimaging technique to determine this?
- What electrophysiological processes are responsible for the recognition and neural representation of faces and objects?
- What is fMRI-A, and how does it elucidate upon the process of object recognition beyond a basic fMRI?
- How is pattern analysis involved in facial and object recognition?
- In what ways does fMRI-HR improve upon the information gathered from other types of MRI’s?

A Perceptually Completed Whole Is Less Than the Sum of Its Parts
Psychological Science June 2014 25: 1206-1217, first published on May 5, 2014 doi:10.1177/0956797614530725
- How do we perceive objects when part of the object is obstructed from view? How is visual completion involved in this process?
- What are optimal, suboptimal, and superoptimal integration?
- What are some examples of tasks (or stimuli) that can be presented to determine the process of visual completeness?
