Hope you can join us on 4/6! RSVP “yes” if you want to add this event to your calendar.
 
Please join us on 4/6 for a Developmental Science HOA with Dr.+Matthew Schlesinger, Associate Professor of Psychology at Southern Illinois University and director of the SIU Vision Lab. Matthew Schlesinger received his graduate degree in cognitive development from the University of California at Berkeley in 1995. After spending a year as a visiting lecturer in psychology at Berkeley, Dr. Schlesinger received a Fulbright fellowship to study artificial life models of sensorimotor cognition with Domenico Parisi at the Italian National Research Council in Rome. Dr. Schlesinger continued his postdoctoral work in 1998-2000 with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts, studying machine-learning approaches to adaptive motor control.  He is currently involved in three areas of research:  (1) visual attention and spatial working memory in infants, children, and adults, (2) neural network models of early visual processing and oculomotor control, and (3) neural substrates of working memory and spatial-directed attention. 

RSVP “yes” if you want to add this event to your calendar.

Auditory Dominance in Adults
The current research will be presented at the Midwestern Psychological Association in April. See text below for a short summary or click on picture to view full poster.

Summary of Research
Adults had to quickly determine if two sounds, two pictures, or two A-V pairings were exactly the same or different.

Presenting the pictures and sounds together slowed down visual discrimination times but had no effect on auditory discrimination times (see Figure 2). 

In Experiment 2 we extended the finding to linguistic stimuli (i.e., spoken words also slowed down visual processing). See Figure 3. We also instructed adults in Study 2 to ignore the sounds/words and only respond to the visual information. Even though attention was directed to visual information, sounds and words both slowed down responding to visual information. 

While the adult literature consistently points to visual dominance, the current study provides novel support showing that sounds and words can also attenuate visual processing. 

Please use the following reference if you want to cite this work:
Dunifon, C., & Robinson, C.W. (2015, April). Pay attention to the pictures: Auditory dominance not under attentional control. Poster presented at the Annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association, Chicago, IL.

Hotels or Airbnb?
For the last 2 weeks I have been trying to book a hotel room in downtown Chicago for the Fourth of July weekend. Many of the hotels near the downtown area do not have rooms available or they run $400-800 a night. My friends referred me to +Airbnb​, and I am currently looking into a loft right off of Michigan Ave for $250! It really seems like a nice (and interesting) way to travel, and it is a lot cheaper. 

I have provided a link below that will give you $25 off your first trip! Disclaimer: Using the link below to create an account will also give me $25 credit if you use the service for travel and $75 if you host.

I am new to +Airbnb​ and would like to hear from you. Have you used this service to find a room or house? Have you used this service to host and share your house with others? What are your thoughts?

Ames Illusion
An Ames room is a distorted room that is used to create an optical illusion. Likely influenced by the writings of Hermann Helmholtz, it was invented by American ophthalmologist Adelbert Ames, Jr. in 1934, and constructed in the following year. An Ames room is viewed with one eye through a pinhole such as to avoid any clues from stereopsis, and it is constructed so that from the front it appears to be an ordinary cubic-shaped room, with a back wall and two side walls parallel to each other and perpendicular to the horizontally level floor and ceiling. However, this is a trick of perspective and the true shape of the room is trapezoidal: the walls are slanted and the ceiling and floor are at an incline, and the right corner is much closer to the front-positioned observer than the left corner (or vice versa).

There's a search feature that allows users to search for videos. You can turn it off but it seems pretty good. As an example, it won't pull up any Miley Cyrus vids but can watch most Taylor Swift vids.

Face tracking (detection, rather than recognition) is simpler. An integrated feature in most modern digital cameras (with inferior computational power compared to smartphones). 
There are non-commercial face recognition apps under development (Beta) that can read emotions and differentiate reliably between multiple faces, intended to be used by blind people.

Cool finding. Anyone have 7-tesla magnets and a cryocooler that I can borrow? On a more serious note, it is interesting to think about potential applications. What would you do if you could use magnets to control heat and sound?
 
Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field. In the March 23 issue of the journal Nature Materials, they describe how a magnetic field roughly the size of a medical MRI reduced the amount of heat flowing through a semiconductor by 12 percent. The study is the first ever to prove that acoustic phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties.

Paid Research Program: http://bln.osu.edu/REU_Main.htm
Lab: http://bln.osu.edu/LanguagePod.php
 
Please join us on 3/4 for a Developmental Science HOA with Dr.+Laura Wagner, Associate Professor of Psychology at +The Ohio State University and director of the Developmental Language and Cognition Lab. Dr. Wagner studies how children acquire language, and in particular, how they learn about meaning. Her research has looks at various dimensions of meaning, including children's understanding of temporal and event semantics (especially the linguistic category of aspect), and their understanding of social indexical meanings coded in dialect and register. She conducts her studies at her lab on OSU's campus, and also at the Columbus Center of Science and Industry (+COSI). We will enable the Q & A app prior to the HOA so feel free to posts your questions on the event post or by using the app. RSVP “yes” to add this event to your calendar.

Heart Rate Variability and AV Processing in Infants
We recently presented these preliminary data at the International Conference on Infant Studies. Summary is below or you can click on poster and scroll with mouse wheel to enlarge.

Summary
*Infants were presented with alternating old and new sounds (E1) or old and new AV pairings (E2), and we recorded infants' heart rates.

*Heart rate slowed down more for novel sounds and novel images, suggesting that heart rate can be used to measure AV discrimination in young infants.

*Infants with more variable heart beats (i.e., increased variability in beat to beat intervals) at the beginning of the study were more likely to detect changes in auditory and visual information.

*Current research is examining if heart rate variability can be used to predict selective and divided attention abilities in young children.
