Nicholas Murray, Ph.D.

Professor, Kinesiology, Director of the Visual Motor Lab @ East Carolina University

Dr. Murray is a professor in the Department of Kinesiology at East Carolina University and the director of the Visual Motor Lab. Dr. Murray has studied the relationship between eye movement and elite shooting performance, including work with Jerry Miculek, arguably the greatest shooter of all time.

At this year’s Force Science Conference, Dr. Murray will examine how perception and action processes can impact awareness and performance outcomes. Specifically, he will focus on the roles of attention and visual control. Dr. Murray will present results from experiments that demonstrate how decision-making and behavior are influenced by the brain and nervous system’s response to high-stress environments.
