Past research has proposed that an attentional bias for threatening stimuli plays a role in the development and maintenance of anxiety disorders. Such findings have led researchers to experimentally test the hypothesis that an attentional bias to threat causally contributes to anxiety, by (...)

The climate is changing. The interesting and important challenges this poses are not about temperature and rainfall, but rather are about fundamental psychological and social issues.

Previous research, in humans, has documented a tendency towards synchronous and symmetrical movements in humans, referred to as bimanual coupling. Communication across the corpus callosum is critical to bimanual coupling. However, the corpus callosum supports multiple neural interactions and it is (...)

15:00 - Colloquium - An anatomy of climate deception and denial More Information
Although more than 95% of relevant domain experts agree that human CO2 emissions are altering the world’s climate, a notable segment of the public rejects the scientific evidence. What factors contribute to this rejection? To provide a broader context for this psychological issue, I first analyze (...)
Friday 18
15:00 - Colloquium - Clustering as a common principle underlying short-term memory and episodic memory More Information
A general conclusion arising from empirical and modelling work from the past 40 years is that people hierarchical structure information in short-term memory tasks such as serial recall and probed recall. Current theories assume that people cluster a large sequence into smaller subsequences, and (...)

Suppose you overhear someone say "He said Barry ordered sushi". Even if you don't have any idea who "he" is, you know one thing for certain - that "he" is not Barry. In other sentences, though, the pronoun "he" and the name "Barry" can refer to (...)
Friday 08
15:00 - Colloquium - How do pitch and time combine in music perception? More Information
A central aim of cognitive psychology is to explain how we integrate stimulus information into a unified percept, but how the dimensions of pitch and time combine in the perception of music remains a largely unresolved issue. Despite claims that these dimensions are either independent or (...)
Friday 15
15:00 - Colloquium - Peak Health - Why we will never be as healthy again as now More Information
Say ‘peak health’ and you might think “top physical fitness” and indeed several organisations have chosen this positive connotation to market their services.
