Departmental Seminar: "The visual system as an imperfect detective", Dr Ronald van den Berg, Uppsala University, Sweden
H1.48 Humanities Annex

Dr Ronald van den Berg

Host: Dr Henrik Singmann

The visual system as an imperfect detective 

A good detective uses all available clues when making inferences. An even better detective will weigh each of these clues by their reliability, such that, for example, the testimony of an unreliable witness matters less than that of a reliable one.

In this talk, I will argue that the visual system works in very much the same way. First, I will present a variety of experimental evidence showing that the human brain indeed weighs visual clues by their reliability, even when the weights change from trial to trial in an unpredictable manner. Thereafter, I will present findings from a more recent study, showing that despite this remarkable feature, there are notable imperfections in the visual system’s detective work. I will speculate on possible causes of these imperfections and discuss what our findings mean in light of the "Bayesian brain" hypothesis.

"Ask an Editor" workshop with Prof Steve Lindsay (UVic)
OC0.01 Oculus

Contact Kim Wade for more details:

Ask an Editor about Publishing in and Reviewing for Psychology Journals

"Ask An Editor" seminar with Leverhulme visiting professor Steve Lindsay.

This seminar is designed for senior students and early career researchers who have little experience working with journal editors as authors or as reviewers. Steve is currently Editor in Chief of Psychological Science and previously served as Editor in Chief of Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. He has also authored or coauthored scores of articles, some of which have had substantial impact. He served on the Publications Committee of the Psychonomic Society for 3 years (2 years as Chair). In short, he knows quite a bit about working with journal editors. The seminar aims to provide participants with an overview of what's involved in publishing articles in psychology journals, along with tips as to how to do so successfully. It will also touch on tips for reviewers (with a particular emphasis on reviewing in ways that foster transparency and replicability).

For planning, please let me know if you intend to participate.
