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
