Call for Abstracts

Organizing Committee invites all professionals to participate in the Congress submitting abstracts. All papers will be evaluated and selected by the Scientific Committee. Final decision will be notified by email to authors.

Who can submit an abstract?

Spoken Presentation

All 2015 Members, Fellows, Emeritus Members, Associate Members, and Student Members of Psychonomics, SEPEX and ESCoP may submit abstracts for the International Meeting of the Psychonomic Society. For spoken presentations, Full Members and Fellows must also be the presenter. Non-members of Psychonomics SEPEX, ESCoP may also submit abstracts. Due to time and space limitations, there are a limited number of abstracts that will be accepted from non-members.

Priority will be given to abstracts submitted by Fellows and full members of the societies. If all Fellows and Full members can be accommodated in spoken sessions, priority for remaining speaking opportunities is assigned first to Members, then to non-members holding PhDs, and, in rare cases, to Student Members. Please take note Emeritus and Honorary members are considered as full member.

Poster Presentation

In the case of posters, priorities for acceptance depend upon the status of the submitting author. Unlike spoken presentations, the person submitting a poster abstract is not required to be the actual presenter of the abstract. We will try to accommodate all posters, but if the number exceeds the available space, the priority for poster opportunities is assigned first to Fellows and Full Members, then to Members, then to non-members holding PhDs, and then to Student Members, and finally to student non-members.

Abstract

The Psychology of Scarcity and Its Consequences

This talk will review research around the psychology that emerges in contexts of scarcity, and the decisions — occasionally commendable, often problematic — that ensue.  Some implications for thinking about scarcity (esp. poverty) and for policy will be considered.

Abstract

Two languages in mind:  Bilingualism as a lens to cognition

More people in the world are bilingual than monolingual. Yet, until recently, bilingualism was considered to be a complicating factor for modeling language processing, language learning, and the cognitive resources that support them. In the past two decades, there has been an upsurge of research on the consequences of bilingual language experience for cognition and the brain. In this talk, I present evidence that suggests that the interactions that arise when two languages are in play reveal mechanisms of cognitive control that may be difficult or impossible to examine in monolingual speakers. In this sense, bilingualism becomes a lens to cognition.

Abstract

MaGuire_EleanorThe what, where, when, why and how of memory

Memory is undeniably central to cognition. And yet, there is still a pervasive tendency to examine memory in isolation. By considering why memory exists, what it is for, how and where memories are built and if and when they change over time, I will argue that memory can only be properly understood if considered in the context of cognition as a whole. I will examine cognitive, neuropsychological and brain imaging data to explore this assertion.

Abstract

Duncan_JohnFrontoparietal control systems in the assembly of cognitive episodes

All human cognition is controlled in a series of attentional episodes, breaking complex problems into simpler, more solvable sub-problems. In human fMRI studies, a common or multiple-demand (MD) pattern of frontal and parietal activity is associated with diverse cognitive demands, and with standard tests of fluid intelligence. Based on behavioural, neuropsychological, fMRI and single unit data, I suggest that the core function of MD cortex is to control complex cognition in a structured sequence of attentional episodes. At the same time, I consider the complementary control functions of MD and “default mode” networks
