The not-for-profit sector constitutes a major part of society and the economy, both in Australia and internationally. And yet, as a sector, it remains under-researched.

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - How Remembering Causes Forgetting : A public lecture by Professor Amy H. Criss, Psychology, Syracuse University Website | More Information
Humans rely on memory at nearly every moment: we use our memories of the past to predict the future, and memory is essential to our concept of self. Nevertheless, our memory for the details of events is imperfect. Some details of an event are forgotten and other details can be falsely remembered (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Personality, Values, Culture, Evolution – why are we similar and yet so different? : Public lecture by Ronald Fischer, Center for Applied Cross-Cultural Research, Victoria University of Wellington Website | More Information

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Perceiving Facial Identity in Own- vs. Other-Race Faces: New Insights About Why Our Perception of Identity in Other-Race Faces is so Error-Prone : Psychology Colloquium More Information
Recognizing facial identity is challenging: Two photos of the same person can look quite different and photos of two different people can look very similar. Making decisions about photo identification—something passport officers, eyewitnesses and shop clerks do every day—is error prone, especially (...)

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Early intervention for cognitive decline and dementia: Targeting modifiable risk factors : Psychology Colloquium More Information
With the increasing ageing population, the number of people living with dementia will quadruple by 2050. Since there are no effective cures for dementia, there is increasing emphasis on targeting modifiable risk factors, which account for 30-50% of the total risk. In this talk, Prof Naismith will (...)
