About the Author
Daniel R. Little is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Melbourne. He directs the Knowledge, Information & Learning Laboratory in the Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences. His research focuses on the mathematical modeling of complex perceptual decisions in categorization and recognition. Daniel received his PhD in 2009 from the University of Western Australia. Nicholas Altieri, MS PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Speech Language Pathology at Idaho State University. He currently co-directs the EEG laboratory in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. His research specializes in multi-sensory perception, cognitive neuroscience, speech recognition, and statistical modeling of psychological processes. Nicholas studied as a graduate student for five years in James Townsend's laboratory where he began working with SFT, and continues to apply its theoretical fundamentals across a wide range of research topics. Mario Fific is an associate Professor of Department of Psychology at Grand Valley State University, Michigan. He directs the Cognitive Science and Decision-Making Laboratory. His research focuses on the development of a highly diagnostic and sophisticated methodology for uncovering mental architecture, known as systems factorial technology (SFT). SFT allows for precise determination of the fundamental properties of mental processes underlying cognitive operations in categorization, face detection, reading and visual/memory search. Prof. Cheng-Ta Yang is an Associate Professor of Department of Psychology, National Cheng Kung University. He got his PHD degree at Department of Psychology, National Taiwan University in 2009. His primary research interests include attention, visual short-term memory, perceptual decision-making, and cognitive modeling. He has spent more than 10 years on studying Systems Factorial Technology and its application. Recently, he received several awards such as Ta-You Wu Memorial Award from National Science Council (2013), The Outstanding Young Persons (2015), and Academia Sinica Research Award for Junior Research Investigators (2016).
