Dr. Dodd received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Toronto in 2005 and was a Killam postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia before joining the faculty in 2007. His research encompasses many different aspects of human cognition, with a particular focus on visual attention (e.g., visual search; scene perception; task-induced changes in eye movements; task-switching and eye movements; inhibition of return; object-based attention; apparent motion; oculomotor programming; planning and execution of saccades in younger and older adults), memory (false memory, retrieval-induced forgetting, directed forgetting), and goal-directed activity, as well as the interactions between these cognitive systems (e.g., interactions between the spatial distribution of attention and memory, interactions between motor action and working memory, interactions between numbers/ordinal sequences and attention).  He is a core faculty member in the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior (CB3) where he is also a part of a number of interdisciplinary collaborations relating to athletic performance, concussion, and attention in various real world domains.  He teaches Psychology 263 (Introduction to Cognitive Processes), Psychology 466/866 (Attention and Performance), and Psychology 907 (Cognitive Proseminar).  He is currently an Associate Editor for the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance
