The Motion Silencing Effect in Static and Dynamic Orientation Change Detection: Experiment 1

Tabea-Maria Haase, Anina Rich, Iain Gilchrist & Chris Kent
This experiment is based upon the results of Crowe, Howard, Gilchrist, and Kent (2021) who explored the effect of motion on visual search in a change event task. The authors developed a dynamic visual search task, which involved monitoring the display for a critical change event, to investigate the effect that dynamic stimuli may have on the detection of a feature change in visual search (Crowe, Howard, Gilchrist, & Kent, 2021). Participants needed to search...

Do Normative Rules Interfere With political Beliefs? (Trend Deniers)

Omid Ghasemi
Previous research has shown that normative rules such as logic or probability can interfere with belief judgments. For example, using an instructional manipulation paradigm, Pennycook et al. (2013) showed that on problems with a conflict between base-rate information and stereotype, participants were less accurate, less confident, and slower in their belief judgments, compared to problems with no conflict. To the best of our knowledge, all studies with instructional manipulations have used reasoning problems with neutral...

The Relationship between Swimming and Low Back Pain: A Scoping Review

Morrie Toum
A Broad Scoping Review that investigates the relationship between the activity of Swimming and Low Back Pain.

Temporal dissociation of neural activity underlying synaesthetic and perceptual colours

Lina Teichmann, Tijl Grootswagers, Denise Moerel, Thomas Carlson & Anina Rich
Raw data (BIDS), analysis scripts, figures, and stimuli for "Temporal dissociation of neural activity underlying synesthetic and perceptual colours"

Reading subtitles with a secondary visual task: Evidence from eye movements

Sixin Liao, Jan-Louis Kruger, Lili Yu, Natalia Wisniewska & Erik Reichle
This study aims to investigate how the presence and complexity of a secondary visual task might affect subtitle reading and comprehension. Findings of this study will have implications for understanding how attention is allocated (either serially to one word at a time or in parallel) during reading in multimodal contexts, such as reading subtitles in video.

Logical Intuition Is Not Really About Logic

Omid Ghasemi, Simon Handley, Stephanie Howarth, Ian Newman & Valerie Thompson
The goal of the current study is to examine whether reasoners are actually processing the logical structure of the argument, or whether they are relying on some other structural feature that happens to align with logical validity.

The bidirectional relationship between peer victimisation and internalising problems in school-age children: A meta-analysis

Stefanny Christina
A quantitative review of research studies who have analysed the longitudinal relationships between peer victimisation and internalising problems, and vice versa, in school-aged children.

Bodily-self cues and visuo-tactile TOJ: Experiment 1

Robert Keys, Anina Rich, Veronika Kosourikhina & Regine Zopf
Study details and pre-registration for Experiment 1 on Bodily-self cues and visuo-tactile temporal order judgments.

Real-World Outcomes of Normatively Correct Intuitions

Omid Ghasemi
What are the real-world outcomes of intuitive normative rules? Do people with a different intuitive ability to evaluate normative rules have different everyday beliefs?

The effects of morphological instruction on literacy outcomes for children in English-speaking countries: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Danielle Colenbrander, Alexa von Hagen, Saskia Kohnen, Elisabeth Beyersmann, Signy Wegener, Amabel Roebuck-Krautz, Michael Alam, Rauno Parrila & Anne Castles
This systematic review and meta-analysis aims to answer the following questions in relation to the effectiveness of morphological instruction for primary school children in English-speaking countries: 1. Does morphological instruction improve children’s outcomes on measures of reading accuracy, reading fluency and spelling containing trained words? 2. Does morphological instruction result in generalisation to tasks containing untrained words, and to measures of far transfer such as reading comprehension? 3. Does the effectiveness of instruction differ depending...

Experiment 5: using instruction to impact rational thought and belief bias.

Stephanie Howarth, Amanda Barnier, Simon Handley, Vince Polito, Max Coltheart & Dries Trippas

Vowel hyperarticulation in infant-directed speech – a meta-analysis

Irena Lovcevic, Titia Benders, Riccardo Fusaroli, Sho Tsuji & Christina Dideriksen
3.1. When addressing infants, adults produce a special speech register known as infant-directed speech (IDS) (Fernald & Simon, 1984), which can be differentiated from adult-directed speech (ADS) by a number of linguistic, acoustic, and visual properties (Chong, Werker, Russell, & Carroll, 2003; Cooper & Aslin, 1990; Fernald & Simon, 1984; Kalashnikova, Carignan, & Burnham, 2017; Kuhl et al., 1997). In this study, we are focused on one of these features, vowel hyperarticulation. Vowel hyperarticulation refers...

Loneliness and Interpersonal Emotion Regulation Effort

Kristina Mei, Katharine Greenaway, Ella Moeck & Hoang Tran
This study investigates interpersonal emotion regulation, which is the process by which people change others’ emotions (extrinsic) or their own emotions (intrinsic) through social means. We are interested in understanding how the amount of effort invested in interpersonal emotion regulation relates to loneliness in everyday life.

Orthographic facilitation of spoken word learning in noise

Andrea Salins, Linda Cupples, Greg Leigh & Anne Castles
It is well established that noisy environments compromise hearing and the ability to learn in children and adults (e.g., Klatte, Bergstrom, & Lachmann, 2013; Ljung, Sorqvist, Kjellberg, & Green, 2009). Researchers have shown that providing spellings during spoken word learning is beneficial for children with typical and atypical development. Further, this benefit has also been observed in second language learners. Providing spellings along with phonology may provide a more stable anchor than providing phonology alone,...

This review characterizes the movement demands of professional rugby league match-play.

Investigating effects of semantic variables on word production

Leonie Lampe, Solène Hameau, Audrey Bürki, Nora Fieder, Paul Sowman & Lyndsey Nickels
This project investigates whether word production is affected by semantic variables. Specifically, we will simultaneously examine six feature-based semantic variables (number of near semantic neighbours, semantic similarity, number of semantic features, typicality, intercorrelational density, distinctiveness). This work will inform word production theory by (1) clarifying and dissociating effects of these semantic variables on word production; and (2) studying their temporal dynamics using EEG.

Development of orthographic expectations during spoken word training in second language learners
