Current Research

Dr. Hoo Keat's research focuses on cross-cultural face perception, more specifically on the own-race bias in face memory (i.e. poorer recognition of other-race faces compared to own-race faces). He also applies eye-tracking technique to further investigate how interracial contact and cultural factors may interact to influence the underlying mechanisms of human face processing. Currently, he is interested in utilising encephalography (EEG) measures to study the underlying processing of self-face recognition as well as the effect of mindfulness meditation on executive functions.
