The BPS Cognition Conference & Article Absence

I apologise for the lack of articles on the blog the last few months. I have been accepted for a PhD in Oslo, so a lot of time has been spent moving and preparing. I hope to rectify my inactivity by putting some more posts on the blog this year!

In the meantime, here is a photo from the BPS Conference in Nottingham, September 5th 2014. At this conference I had one poster and one oral talk, both where on gender effects on the Stroop test.

You can view a pdf of the talk HERE, although obviously its content was elaborated with commentary which is not included.

The poster can be viewed HERE.



The HBES 2013 Experience

HBESThe HBES conference is now over. It was a great experience for me; It was my first international conference presentation (more on that in a later post), I learned a lot about evolutionary topics that were new to me, and I met a lot of great people. Presented topics represented a wide variety of fields such as psychology, anthropology, biology, economics, and even criminology. Continue reading

Hi everyone.

I plan to attend the entire 4-day conference, held at the Loews in Miami Beach, Florida.I will also be presenting my Hunter-gatherer dissertation on Saturday 20th of July. I hope to document it, but no promises. Stay tuned.

Me at the BACN 2013 conference.

I recently attended the BACN 2013 conference (or “Bacon” conference as I call it), which is the British Association of Cognitive Neuroscience conference 2013, held at Nottingham University. Attached is a photo of me and my poster, which was a review of neuroscientific evidence for the hunter-gatherer hypothesis. You can view a pdf version of the poster in the download section or by clicking HERE, though keep in mind it was a work in progress, hence why no conclusion was post ed. Nevertheless, the poster was a success and I had many enquiries about it.
