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...
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...
A Broad Scoping Review that investigates the relationship between the activity of Swimming and Low Back Pain.
Raw data (BIDS), analysis scripts, figures, and stimuli for "Temporal dissociation of neural activity underlying synesthetic and perceptual colours"
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.
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-analysisStefanny 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.
Study details and pre-registration for Experiment 1 on Bodily-self cues and visuo-tactile temporal order judgments.
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-analysisDanielle 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...
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...
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.
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.
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.
