I want to thank the Psychology Alumni Advisory Board for this generous award in support of my attendance at the 20th annual meeting of the Vision Sciences Society. Participation in this conference is a great benefit to me because it allows me to network and share ideas with other researchers in my field. Thank you very much for making these travel funds available, without your support it would be difficult to attend conferences.
