Fab Parmentier's site

Welcome to!

I'm a cognitive psychologist, Professor at the Department of Psychology, University of the Balearic Islands, and a member of the Neuropsychology and Cognition Group, one of the official research groups of the University of the Balearic Islands, the Research Institute of Health Sciences at the University of the Balearic Islands (iUNICS) and the newly created Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria de Palma. This site contains information about my research and background.



My research

My overall interest is in memory and attention, especially the cognitive mechanisms underpinning short-term memory (serial memory and associative memory in particular) and the capture of attention by unexpected events. Lately I have focused on studying the behavioral distraction yielded by unexpected changes in a stream of auditory or tactile stimuli.


I am currently Professor at the Department of Psychology, University of the Balearic Islands, which I joined at the end of 2008 as a Ramon y Cajal Fellow.

Before moving to Spain, I was a Reader in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Plymouth (UK), where I worked during eight years. Prior to that, I was a Research Associate at the University of Cardiff (UK), where I did my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dylan Jones OBE.

I'm also an Adjunct Senior Researcher at the University of Western Australia (honorary position) and a Visiting Professor at the University of Bournemouth (UK, honorary position too).
