    The importance of search strategy for finding targets in open terrain

    A number of real-world search tasks (i.e. police search, detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs)) require searchers to search exhaustively across open ground. In the present study, we simulated this p...

    Holistic processing of fingerprints by expert forensic examiners

    Holistic processing is often characterized as a process by which objects are perceived as a whole rather than a compilation of individual features. This mechanism may play an important role in the development ...

    Remembering that big things sound big: Sound symbolism and associative memory

    According to sound symbolism theory, individual sounds or clusters of sounds can convey meaning. To examine the role of sound symbolic effects on processing and memory for nonwords, we developed a novel set of...

    Gesture enhances learning of a complex statistical concept

    Prior research has shown that gestures that co-occur with speech can improve understanding of abstract concepts by embodying the underlying meaning of those concepts, thereby making them more accessible to the...

    I want to media multitask and I want to do it now: Individual differences in media multitasking predict delay of gratification and system-1 thinking

    Media multitasking, the concurrent use of multiple media forms, has been shown to be related to greater self-reported impulsivity and less self-control. These measures are both hallmarks of the need for immedi...

    Grounded understanding of abstract concepts: The case of STEM learning

    Characterizing the neural implementation of abstract conceptual representations has long been a contentious topic in cognitive science. At the heart of the debate is whether the “sensorimotor” machinery of the...

    Individual differences predict low prevalence visual search performance

    Critical real-world visual search tasks such as radiology and baggage screening rely on the detection of rare targets. When targets are rare, observers search for a relatively short amount of time and have a h...
