Back to the rain of Manchester after a sunny time in Oxford. It was a busy conference as it was a joint meeting of the Experimental Psychology Society and SEPEX (Spanish Experimental Psychology Society). The meeting was held at St Anne's college with up to three parallel session at any one time. The lab was represented by me (Dr Luke Jones) and PhD student Emily Williams. We attended a particularly interesting talk by Gabriela E López-Tolsa (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, Spain) on the adjunctive behaviour and performance of rats in a temporal bisection task. Emily's poster presentation (see photo) was very well received and gathered a good deal of interest, including from one researcher who turned out to be Dr Peter Naish (co-author of some very famous timing papers with Michel Treisman, as well as his own famous work on hypnosis). Many thanks to the conference organisers and to the EPS itself for awarding Emily a Grindley Grant to attend.
This weekend our lab is being represented at the Experimental Psychology Conference, being held at St Annes's College, University of Oxford. Our PhD student Emily Williams will be giving a poster presentation on her Masters and PhD work, exploring the pacemaker component of the SET system. It is Emily's first presentation at the EPS, quite a milestone in any experimental psychologist's career.
