James C. Elliott

 
 

James Elliott has been working with Dr. Barry Giesbrecht since December of 2004 and has been a Graduate Student in the Laboratory for Attention, Brain, and Behavior since the fall of 2007. His research at UCSB has focused on how attending to one object influences the processing of subsequently unattended information.  


He is also interested in studying how the human mind and brain can transform itself through training. He is particularly interested in the extent to which attention can be trained by means of meditation and how training in attention may facilitate other types of training.
