A systematic review on the effects of attention bias modification on body dissatisfaction

Mokshi Jain, Thea House & Helen Bould
A systematic review of studies investigating the effect of attention bias modification on body dissatisfaction. We hypothesise that attention training interventions can change attention biases, and that by doing so, attention training interventions can alter body dissatisfaction.

Do Statistical Rules Interfere with Political Beliefs?

Omid Ghasemi, Andrew Roberts & Simon Handley
Previous research has shown that normative rules such as logic or probability can interfere with belief judgments. In the current project, however, we are interested to see if normative rules can interfere with more entrenched beliefs such as climate-related beliefs.

Immediate Inferences

Omid Ghasemi
In this project, we investigate the role of typicality and quantifier manipulations on inductive and deductive inferences.

The relationship between body dissatisfaction and engagement and disengagement bias to low fat bodies_UPDATE_04.07.2022

Thea House, Wong Keat, Ian Stephen, Kevin Brooks, Helen Bould, Angela Attwood & Ian Penton-Voak
This registration is an update to a protocol for an observational study registered on the 28th October 2021 (House et al., 2021). In this previously registered protocol, we planned to recruit 200 participants that passed our data screening checks or stop data collection by the 30th June 2022. By the 30th June 2022, we had recruited 198 participants, of which 167 participants passed our data screening checks. Therefore, we were 33 participants below our target...

The Effect of Number Type on Naturalness Perception

Yi Li
This project investigates how the type of number (i.e., round vs. sharp) influences individual's naturalness perception of objects.

The Effect of Attention on the Motion Silencing Effect in Dynamic Orientation Discrimination

Tabea-Maria Haase, Anina Rich, Iain Gilchrist & Chris Kent
Suchow and Alvarez (2011a) demonstrated that a stimulus undergoing a feature change in either size, hue, shape or brightness would appear to change more slowly once the display started to rotate. The stimulus, often an annulus made up out of small circles that would exhibit the feature change, would even appear to stop changing at high rotation speeds (Suchow & Alvarez, 2011a). Though previous studies have investigated to what extent grouping (Peirce, 2013), crowding, global...

Examining the predictive coding account of autism using MEG and a roving auditory oddball paradigm

How do skilled readers read potentiophones?

Danielle Colenbrander, Saskia Kohnen, Serje Robidoux, Signy Wegener, Laura Ayravainen, Madeleine Skinner, Elisabeth Beyersmann & Anne Castles
Potentiophones are irregular words that, when phonologically decoded, produce the phonological form of another words (e.g., shone, which is pronounced ‘shown’ if phonologically decoded). The Self-Teaching Dual Route Cascaded (ST-DRC) model of reading (Pritchard, Coltheart, Marinus & Castles, 2018) predicts that potentiophones will be particularly difficult to learn. If potentiophones are challenging to learn, this may produce a processing cost that endures. Therefore, in this study, we compare adults' processing of potentiophones compared to matched...

The role of syllables and morphemes in silent reading

Elisabetta De Simone, Kristina Moll, Lisa Feldmann, Xenia Schmalz & Elisabeth Beyersmann
In this study, we investigate reliance on syllable and morphemes in German. The choice of this language was dictated by the consideration that German is both morphologically complex (it has a productive compounding system, a rich verbal and adjectival inflection, and make a large use of derivation through prefixation and suffixation - Borleffs et al., 2017) and has a complex syllabic structure (with close CVC syllables and complex consonant clusters - Seymour et al., 2003)....
