Biography

The world is continuous, but sensory input is not. We perceive a coherent representation of the world, despite the piecemeal nature of successive eye fixations and the distinctly different types of information perceived through our sensory modalities (e.g., vision vs. touch). What role does knowledge and expectation play in organizing and remembering these experiences? Professor Intraub and her students conduct research on visual scene perception, imagination and memory, as well as haptic and bimodal representation. They study constructive memory errors, and what these reveal about the organizing structures that underlie perception of objects and scenes. Although the Intraub Lab primarily focuses on adult cognition, she and her students also take a developmental perspective on these topics in research at the University's Early Learning Center.

Helene Intraub is a Fellow at APS and the Psychonomic Society. Her research has been supported by grants from NSF and NIH. Elected to the Governing Board of the Psychonomic Society (2009-2014), she became Chair in 2013. Intraub has been a Program Director at NSF, and a representative at FABBS and the Counsel of Science Society Presidents. She serves on the Advisory Board of Women in Cognitive Science, and is a member of the Committee of Science and the Arts, at The Franklin Institute. An advocate of science outreach, Intraub was honored to have her research on boundary extension featured in the Exploratorium Science Museum's exhibit, "Human Memory", and the subsequent 5-year International Science Museum Tour. ​
