Guest Speaker: Professor Spencer Kelly “Exploring the Emotional Function of Co-Speech Gesture in Language and Communication”
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Professor Spencer Kelly from Colgate University, New York will be joining us for a Virtual Seminar on TEAMS, speaking on:

“Exploring the Emotional Function of Co-Speech Gesture in Language and Communication”

Brief abstract:

Over the past four decades, the scientific study of co-speech hand gestures has heavily focused on their cognitive roles in thinking, speaking and communicating. However, there is a long history of considering the emotional functions of gesture, and in this talk, Prof. Kelly will describe a range of experiments from his lab that explore this issue in language comprehension. He will argue that by bringing emotion back into the study of co-speech gesture, we will have a deeper understanding of the communicative function of the hands in language use.

Please contact Suzanne Aussems if you'd like to talk to Professor Kelly after the talk.

Hosts: Sotaro Kita, Suzanne Aussems

Guest Speaker: Dr Sudeep Bhatia “Process and Content in Decisions from Memory”
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Dr Sudeep Bhatia, Computational Behavioural Science Lab, University of Pennsylvania

Process and Content in Decisions from Memory
Information stored in memory influences the formation of preferences and beliefs in most everyday decision tasks. The richness of this information, and the complexity inherent in interacting memory and decision processes, makes the quantitative model-driven analysis of such decisions very difficult. In this paper we present a general framework that is capable of addressing the theoretical and methodological barriers to building formal models of naturalistic memory-based decision making. Our framework implements established theories of memory search and decision making within a single integrated cognitive system, and uses computational language models to quantify the thoughts over which memory and decision processes operate. It can thus describe both the content of the information that is sampled from memory, as well as the processes involved in retrieving and evaluating this information in order to make a decision. Furthermore, our framework is tractable, and the parameters that characterize memory-based decisions can be recovered using thought-listing and choice data from existing experimental tasks, and in turn be used to make quantitative predictions regarding choice probability, length of deliberation, retrieved thoughts, and the effects of decision context. We showcase the power and generality of our framework by applying it to study risk perception, consumer behavior, financial decision making, ethical decision making, legal decision making, food choice, and judgments about well-being, society and culture.
