Scott Murray is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington. His research focuses on the neural and computational mechanisms underlying perception and attention, with a particular emphasis on neurodiversity. Murray’s lab uses state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques, computational models and behavioral assessments to shed light on the mechanisms that drive a person’s interactions with the environment. In an effort to promote understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity, he integrates a focus on autism and related neurodivergent conditions into his research. He believes that understanding the neural mechanisms of perception and attention in these populations can provide valuable insights into the full spectrum of human experiences.
