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.

My first published article

Q90new2A few days ago my first article was published in a peer-reviewed journal. This was an article about the statistical method called the meta-analysis, a tool that is useful in combining all the available research in a field in order to find out what the overall effect is. The article was aimed at students, discussing the pros and cons of using such a method for their dissertation. However, it also had researchers in mind that had never done a meta-analysis, so hopefully academics will find it useful as well.

The article was published in PsyPAG and is available free online, and you can access the journal issue HERE. My article is on pages 18-23, or you can download the pdf of the article itself HERE.
