Argument Complexity and Persuasion (Experiment 2)

Omid Ghasemi
Is there a relationship between argument complexity and persuasion? Are simple arguments more successful in persuasion than complex ones? On simple arguments, logic-based judgments may be more accessible than belief-based judgments because the underlying logical structure of the argument is clear. If this is the case, it seems that reasoners can be more easily convinced by simple arguments than complex arguments. However, it is reasonable to assume that complex arguments may signal reasoners' expertise, argument...

This research is the first study into the validation of the questionnaire instrument for evaluating human interaction with an artificial social agent. It involves crowd workers on an online crowdsourcing platform. They will be asked to use the questionnaire instrument to rate an interaction between an agent and a human user, which is displayed in a 30 second video clip. The result of this study will be analysed and used to examine the reliability of...

Understanding the visual constraints on lexical processing: New empirical and simulation results

Aaron Veldre, Lili Yu, Sally Andrews & Erik Reichle
It is well known that visual acuity is not uniform across the visual field. Acuity instead decreases precipitously from the center of vision. The region of maximum acuity, called the fovea, is comprised of the central 2º of the visual field, with a region of rapidly decreasing acuity called the parafovea extending an additional 5º of visual angle to either side of this. Although the photoreceptors required for perceiving fine detail are largely limited to...

Characterising men experiencing cognitive side-effects from hormone therapy: a systematic scoping review

Lorna Huang, Kerry Sherman, Heather Francis, Haryana Dhillon & Howard Gurney
A scoping review was conducted in order to systematically map the research surrounding hormone therapy and cognition, as well as to identify any existing gaps in knowledge. The following research question was formulated: what is known from the literature about the characteristics of men with prostate cancer experiencing cognitive side-effects from hormone therapy? The characteristics extracted from the literature were analysed using the biopsychosocial approach to identify the sociodemographic, medical, interpersonal and intrapersonal factors.

Moral Coherence

Aidan Runagall-McNaull
Some of the most significant moral problems we face involve deciding between several compelling considerations. However, despite its central importance to our lives, the process by which we form moral judgements in response to competing considerations is poorly understood. The Deontological Coherence approach (Holyoak & Powell, 2016) suggests that a constraint satisfaction model best accounts for everyday moral decision making. Under this model, moral agents hold a diversity of moral principles, rules and values that...
