You know it's been a great event when parents are scrabbling to sign their babies up for experimentation! (9 likes)

Warning; contains high levels of sass. Part II of my interview with our next speaker. What would your alternative career be? In another life I’d make a really good University Lecturer. Your worst job to date? Selling charity subscriptions door to door. Of course very worthwhile, but fairly soul destroying. At interview I said that I have an everlasting smile, which is true, but it’s a smile that people are happy to slam a door on nonetheless. After a particularly difficult encounter with... (4 likes)

Support Reporters without Borders Fri, 12 Sep 2014 22:45:20 GMT
Every year, some 500 journalists are arrested, 1000 assaulted or threatened, and over 500 media outlets censored. Freedom of information is the foundation of any democracy. Yet almost half of the world’s population is still denied it. Support Reporters without Borders. (This is a promoted post on an unregistered Wallflux-feed)

Cafe Scientifique Guildford shared an event.So you want to be a linguistical relativitologist, what might that involve? Ally answers some of my questions… (part I) Could you briefly describe one of your experiments for us? I am currently running a study investigating the role of colour in infant object recognition. The aim of this study is to find out at what age babies understand that objects should be certain colours. It may be briefest for me to explain this experiment in the style of a Great British Bake off technical challenge recipe: Take one 12-month old baby with no colour vocabulary Blend with the Surrey Baby Lab Ensure that lab is at comfortable room temperature and that toys and books are to hand Add tea and biscuits to parent, whilst explaining the study Carefully pour baby into car seat in front of computer monitor Add some cartoons and some pictures of naturally and unnaturally coloured objects Mix thoroughly with an eye-tracking camera to monitor which objects the baby looks at Add avid attention, partial attention, wriggling, crying or sleeping to taste Repeat until ‘done’ Code data Analyse data Write up for publication in top quartile developmental psychology journal Get promotion What are you working on *now*? Answering questions flippantly, but I should really be doing any or all of the following, possibly simultaneously: submitting my article entitled ‘chromatic perceptual learning’ to the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition; reading my PhD students’ annual review documentation; discussing my current experiment on colour associations with my post-doctoral research fellow; marking first year Cognitive Psychology resit exams; updating my week 1 final year Language and Thought lecture; allocating roles to graduate teaching assistants; preparing my Café Scientifique talk (shhh, don’t tell anyone); and at least five other things. Without too many spoilers what can we expect from the evening? Some science (probably), some comedy (possibly unintentional), a real life baby (or something to that effect), and beer on tap. What more could you want? Exactly; what more could you want. Come meet Ally at our next event https://www.facebook.com/events/710925875645609/ (4 likes)
