Come hear the UQ Psyc Bloggers talk about our research!

Did you know PhD students contribute to about 50% of all the research published in the School of Psychology?

This Friday, 5 November, the School of Psychology is holding the inaugural Research Higher Degrees Day. 16 students from very different areas in psychology will be talking about all the cool things they've discovered during their PhD research.

Contributors to this very blog will be well represented on the day. Here is a list of our resident bloggers' presentation times and titles:
  • 10:20 - 10:40am Rachel McDonald "Conflicting norms: Do multiple groups matter?"
  • 11:20 - 11:30am Katie Greenaway "Of aggression, desire for money, and belief in psychic octopi: The strange and sundry effects of lacking control"
  • 1:50 - 2:10pm Will Harrison "OKN suppression, perceptual mislocalisations, the universe, and you"
  • 2:10 - 2:30pm Joyce Vromen "Does the spider always win the fight for attention? Top-down modulation in fear-relevant Interference"
  • 3:30 - 3:50pm Matt Thompson "The psychology of crime-scene fingerprint identification"
  • 4:10 - 4:30pm Nonie Finlayson "Attention! And the depths we go to capture it"
You can download the full program (which includes abstracts of each presentation) by clicking here. All Presentations will be in room S304 (Level 3 of Social Sciences Building, #24).

I'll leave you with the first slide of my presentation which will hopefully be indicative of the style of presentation I'll give, as well as arouse your interest in the subject of my presentation!
