MerseyLune Seminar: We only search efficiently for two targets when there is no alternative

November 14, 2018 @ 16:00 - 17:00

Prof. Kyle Cave, University of Massachusetts:

We are very good at searching for a visual object in a complex scene when we know its colour, because we can quickly guide our eyes and our attention to locations in the scene that have that colour. When we search for either of two different targets, however, we do not always search efficiently, and thus took longer to find the target. In a series of experiments, we found that subjects searching for two different colours often fixated colours that were very different from either target.

Speaker: Dr. Spencer Hayes, University College London.   Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by differences in restricted, repetitive patterns of behaviour, interests or activities, and persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction. In addition to these core characteristics, it is well reported that autistic people show differences in sensorimotor functioning - such as gait, motor planning, and imitation. Whilst autistic people can imitate the goal of the action (e.g., to pick up a cup), it has been…

Title: Learning from the neural correlates of Anorexia Nervosa about how we might treat Substance Use Disorder. The rising trend of internationally competitive research into the cognitive control of impulsivity reflects the importance of examining the neural mechanisms of impulse control.  The rising trend might be due to impulse control deficits contributing substantially to the increase in serious mental and physical disorders that are prevalent globally. Impulse control, the tendency…
