Steph Acaster BSc

Doctoral Researcher and Demonstrator

  • About

    I began work on my PhD in 2014, investigating the behavioural and electrophysiological correlates of lightness contrast and lightness assimilation. My research falls within the area of visual perception, specifically lightness perception, which concerns the achromatic (white-grey-black) range of colours. The research aims to use ERP and behavioural measures to investigate the way in which neighbouring surfaces can influence the appearance of a surface, and the processing underlying the opposing phenomena of contrast and assimilation.

    As a demonstrator, I am also involved in teaching on undergraduate modules, typically in statistics and quantitative research methods modules.
