Meeting of the Women in Cognitive Science (WIS)

WOMEN IN COGNITIVE SCIENCE (WICS)

Developing International Research Collaborations and Promoting Global Leadership

Thursday May 5, 2016
10:00 am to 1:00 p.m. 
Room-Andalucía III

A Panel Presentation and Discussion

followed by a Speed Mentoring Session

Research is now more of a team effort than an individual enterprise and science is globally engaged.  In this meeting organized by Women in Cognitive Science (http://womenincogsci.org), a panel of senior and junior researchers with international experience will present best practices for developing international research collaborations. We will consider the special challenges that all scientists, females and male alike, but particularly women and members of under-represented groups, face in developing collaborative networks. These include the introduction of new technologies that expand and enable opportunities for collaboration, and the implications for professional development and evaluation in this new context and climate.  Panel presentations will be followed by open discussion with the audience. All are welcome.

Panelists:

Cristina Cacciari, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia
Robert Logie, The University of Edinburgh
Andria Shimi, University of Oxford
Maria Ruz, University of Granada
Petar Milin, Eberhard Karls University Tübingen
Suparna Rajaram, Stony Brook University (Moderator)

Speed Mentoring Session

WiCS will host a speed mentoring session following the panel discussion. Junior researchers, assistant professors postdocs, and Ph.D. students, both female and male, who wish to participate as mentees must register in advance at: http://goo.gl/forms/nDmqcHC8kZ.  Senior researchers, both female and male, who are willing to participate as mentors must register in advance at: http://goo.gl/forms/A0FmtbHTGA.  Note that for the purpose of this event we consider anyone beyond the first years of an assistant professorship or research institute position to be eligible, so both mid-career and senior scientists are invited to be mentors.  WiCS will then pair mentees with mentors based on area of research and the type of institutional affiliation (e.g., large university, research institute, small teaching college). The duration of each mentoring session will be about 30 minutes and both mentees and mentors can register for as many as two. We will follow the format that we introduced in Chicago at Psychonomics 2015.

The workshop will occur the morning of Thursday, May 5, from 10 am-1 pm. Note that the International Psychonomics Meeting will open formally at 1:30 pm. The WiCS program will take place prior to the formal opening and almost certainly requires arriving in Granada the night before.  Pending funding, WiCS will host a light lunch/reception at the end of the morning session.

Acknowledgments: This meeting of Women in Cognitive Science has been made possible by a grant from the Perception, Action, and Cognition Program with the support from the Office of International Science and Engineering at the US National Science Foundation and the Psychonomic Society.

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
