Help out a poor PhD student?
I'm carrying out research into the uncanny valley, and I'm looking for some willing volunteers to test out my next experiment - just to run through it online, and answer a few questions about how you found the experience.

It's been approved by the Open University's Ethics committee, but I've had some feedback that suggests a few things might be improved. I'm too used to it to be able to tell, so I'd like a few people to test it out.

If you're willing to take part, send me an email at s.c.lay@open.ac.uk and I'll send you the details.

Many, many thanks.

Research on neuroscience of empathy
I want to make this list more complete.

Specifically, what are the:
a) labs or primary researchers
b) books
c) conferences
d) one-off papers

... which have to do with the neuroscience of empathy?

Please include only primary academic sources - i.e. not popular press, unscientific publications, or the like. (Exception: popular-format books by people who are in fact real researchers are OK, e.g. most of Paul Ekman's recent books.)

Most important to me is the list of labs / researchers, preferably with links to pages where I can directly download PDFs of their papers, as the primary use for this list is as a list of places I should apply to for my PhD.

Participate in a Harvard study on moral cognition via e-mail
Hello all,

As research assistants in Harvard's Cognitive Evolution Lab, we're conducting a study on the psychology of moral decision making. To help us out, you can take either (or both) of our brief (<10 minute) surveys (which are accessible here: http://rivanathans.googlepages.com/dtevsdnpgword_1.doc and here: http://rivanathans.googlepages.com/aohtrj_webstudy_1.doc) and send them to us via e-mail. Full instructions can be found in the text of each survey.

Thanks so much to all those who participate!

anyone interested in a copy of philosophy of mind: classical and contemporary readings by chalmers?

i needed the text for a class and somehow ended up with two copies of it.

one of my copies i bought used and actually used.
the other i bought new and never used.

i would prefer to part with the new copy, but if no one is interested, i might part with the used one instead.

it's a good book, i just don't need two copies of it.

does anyone know of any good online resources to learn about computational linguistics?

wikipedia's blurb isn't quite doing it for me.
meanwhile, stanford's encyclopedia of philosophy is overwhelming me.

is there some phrase other than "computational linguistics" that i should be looking for?

george lakoff's autograph?

This is my first time posting in this community. I apologize in advance if this is an inappropriate forum for my question. But my curiosity is killing me.

Does anyone here have George Lakoff's autograph? I recently purchased a used copy of Whose Freedom? and was perplexed to find this inside:

014 006

If I squint and use my imagination, I think I can wrest a "George Lakoff" from the scribble. On the other hand, maybe someone just used the page to test out a pen.

Anyone have a confirmed example of his autograph for comparison?

Thank you in advance!

Journal of Memory and Language
Hi all -

I was wondering if anyone's library has access to the Journal of Memory and Language dating back to 1997. If you do, could you please, please, please send me a paper titled "How complex simple words can be" by Schreuder, R. and Baayen, H. Issue 37, pp. 118-139.

If anyone could do this, I don't know what I can do in exchange, but I'd clearly be indebted to this person.

You may send it to morphomir@gmail.com

Thank you.

Hi, I just joined this group and I am quite impressed and excited by it. Please forgive me if I sound like a complete moron as I'm still quite new...to a lot of things lol. I'm still in my undergrad at Cal State Fullerton and I'm pretty new to LJ so a lot of my questions may be ones you roll your eyes at but I'm still taking the chance :). Ok, here goes: I'm a senior and I'm majoring in Communicative Sciences and Disorders, my major was psychology for a long time and then I switched. I decided I missed it and am now going to at least minor (two more classes, might as well) in psych. My major is the undergrad major for Speech Language Pathology, problem is I don't want to do that anymore. My goal focus is autism: research, therapy, observation, advocacy etc all interest me. What kind of grad program should I look into? Can I get into a psych program with only a minor or should I double major? Also, my psych gpa is ok (3.0 ish due to losing focus because of a family passing) so that worries me but my overall and my major are much higher. Like I said before, sorry if this is a pedestrian post but I'm the first person in my family to even go to college so they aren't really up on the whole grad school deal, I work when my counselors are available and I don't know who else to ask. Thank you so much.

EEG Neurofeedback
Has anyone gone through training and certification for EEG Neurofeedback? I'm thinking of doing so this year, and I'd really love to talk to anyone who is (or is considering getting) certified.

Going to VSS conference next week?
(x-posted to neuroscience and cogsci)

By the way, are any of you folks going to the Vision Sciences Society conference next week in Sarasota, FL? I'll be heading there myself with a bunch of other people from my lab. I'm pretty excited, as it's the first time I'll be presenting (albeit in poster form) at a conference.

If anyone's curious, I'll be doing a poster presentation on how "TMS induces detail-rich 'instant replays' of natural images," during the "afterimages and aftereffects" poster session on 5/12 (Saturday).

Does anyone know a free and easy to use (eg, point-and-click) neural networks software? I was thinking of studying ANNs, but I have null programming experience...

Compartmentalization MBTI T/F axis
I'm pretty good at compartmentalizing and contextualizing thoughts, feelings etc, as most analytic types do, putting them into dense a honeycomb like structure, some marked black some filled with golden honey. My mood generally switches based on the average of all the cells currently illuminated by the mental flashlight, and shifts as fast as I switch the beam. e.g. I'm having a tough problem at work and I get frustrated, a friend sends me a funny joke I laugh, and then it's back to frustrated, shift focus someplace else it's whatever I'm looking at.

To contrast this some of my strong F based friends, while they compartmentalize to some degree as well, often the contents overflow into other cells. e.g. they get frustrated by something, they get a call from a distant friend, then the whole world seems rosy. Of course this overflow goes both ways, when an area is particularly bad it runs off into other areas as well.

If perception is like a black and white camera, the F axis might be likened to the degree of blur and either oversaturating or underdeveloping.

Normally I'm wary of emotions distortion, I realized this morning, that evolutionarily both these 'strategies' have strong advantages but not all the time.

(x-posted to personal journal)

This is hilarious:


When photos do contain people related to the task at hand, or the content users are exploring, they do get fixations. However, gender makes a distinct difference on what parts of the photo are stared at the longest. Take a look at the hotspot below.

Although both men and women look at the image of George Brett when directed to find out information about his sport and position, men tend to focus on private anatomy as well as the face. For the women, the face is the only place they viewed.

Coyne adds that this difference doesn’t just occur with images of people. Men tend to fixate more on areas of private anatomy on animals as well, as evidenced when users were directed to browse the American Kennel Club site.

T-shirts with optical illusions? (or other cog-sci apparel?)
I've been trying to find some good t-shirts (or other apparel?) with optical illusions. Have you seen any good ones lately? I've listed some of what I've found so far down below:

* Here's a scintillating grid shirt: http://www.cafepress.com/losethegameshop.56969429

* Here's some more on zazzle: http://www.zazzle.com/pd/find/qs-illusion/ps-40/pt-235/st-POPULARITY?sz=1

I particularly like the rotating snake illusion shirt.

* Another snake shirt: http://mistupid.com/shop.php?i=mistupid/mistupid5.8211841

* Here's another shirt which makes clever use of the fork prong illusion.

* Rabbit in Escher scupture: http://www.threadless.com/product/503/Illusion_of_Rabbit_Optical

* Several from the Archimedes' Laboratory store on CafePress: http://www.cafepress.com/mariejo2/221803

* http://www.cafepress.com/eluzions

* Also, a Stroop Effect shirt: http://www.cafepress.com/buy/grey/-/pv_design_prod/p_709997.9300625/pNo_9300625/id_3697534/?click=true&CMP=KNC-F-ALL

Please give me some advices!
I have recently graduated at Organizational and Social Psychology, but unlike most of my colleagues, during my degree I developed an interest in the computing field. As such I would like to apply my skills to this area. I just don’t know what exactly.

That’s why I’m asking for your assistance: Do you have any ideas or guidance to give me?

I found areas such: artificial intelligence, game play or websites usability…but I’m feeling really lost.

Thanks in advance for your attention.

P.S. I like cognitive science, dreams research, internet, computer games, drawing and music... I hope these things might help. ^^

Current Mood: hopeful
