09.27.22: Summer conferences!

The lamp lab presented three posters at conferences this summer. Shae (PhD) and Youssef (MSc) presented their work at the annual meeting of the Vision Sciences Society in St. Pete's Beach (pictured below) in May.

Their poster sessions were well attended, and they had plenty of productive conversations about their work. Youssef was presenting his behavioural work on learning-related representational change in visual memory, while Shae was presenting her project involving RT-based methods for the detection of mind wandering, and their relation to subsequent memory.

In June, our undergraduate thesis students, Keanna and Silvia presented their work at the 52nd Annual Ontario Psychology Undergraduate Thesis Conference, hosted virtually by Brock via GatherTown. Keanna's work focuses on trying to encourage learning-related change through collaborative drawing, while Silvia's focuses on understanding patterns of thinking that drive memory while drawing and writing.

Later in July, Si Pan (part-time post-doc) presented work with Amy Tuer at the McMaster Symposium on Education & Cognition in Hamilton. This work aims to isolate periods of time during lectures known to elicit high rates of mind wandering, and selectively reclaim student attention. Si made great contributions to the lab, so this was a nice way to cap off his time with us.
