    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...

    Supporting dynamic change detection: using the right tool for the task

    Detecting task-relevant changes in a visual scene is necessary for successfully monitoring and managing dynamic command and control situations. Change blindness—the failure to notice visual changes—is an impor...

    “Special needs” is an ineffective euphemism

    Although euphemisms are intended to put a more positive spin on the words they replace, some euphemisms are ineffective. Our study examined the effectiveness of a popular euphemism for persons with disabilities,

    The perceptual processing of fused multi-spectral imagery

    Multi-spectral imagery can enhance decision-making by supplying multiple complementary sources of information. However, overloading an observer with information can deter decision-making. Hence, it is critical...

    Iconic faces are not real faces: enhanced emotion detection and altered neural processing as faces become more iconic

    Iconic representations are ubiquitous; they fill children’s cartoons, add humor to newspapers, and bring emotional tone to online communication. Yet, the communicative function they serve remains unaddressed b...

    Interactivity mitigates the impact of working memory depletion on mental arithmetic performance

    Doing long sums in the absence of complementary actions or artefacts is a multistep procedure that quickly taxes working memory; congesting the phonological loop further handicaps performance. In the experimen...
