Professor Raymond Klein of Dalhousie University, Canada, delivers a Psychology Research Seminar discussing his work on eye movement control and covert attention

Professor Raymond Klein is a cognitive psychologist whose research is dominated by the concept of attention. He considers himself a neo-Hebbian in the sense that he recognises that the brain is the organ of mind, and values theories that seek to generate psychological processes in neural networks.

In particular, he has recently become involved in applying the methods and findings of human experimental psychology to real world problems of individuals such as those suffering from dyslexia, attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Parkinson's disease, problem gambling, and brain damage because of stroke; and to real-world issues such as counterfeit detection, eyewitness testimony, road and offshore safety.

He has kindly agreed to come along to Middlesex University and discuss his work on eye movement control and covert attention.

With publications in Science, Nature, and Trends in Cognitive Science, Professor Raymond Klein has an impressive research record. He has an h-index of 57 and has been cited over 15,000 times, over 6,000 times since 2011 (Google scholar).

He is on the editorial boards of several journals such as JEP:HPP, Can. JEP, and Attention Perc. & Psychophys. Ray helped Mel Goodale establish The Canadian Society for Brain, Behaviour and Cognitive Science (CSBBCS) and was its second President in 1993-4.

In 2008, he was honoured to receive the society's highest academic honour, the D. O. Hebb Award and in 2012 was honoured to receive its Richard C. Tees Distinguished Leadership Award. In 2011 he was inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He has been at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia (Canada) since 1974.
