We will meet on April 16th at 11:45 (the usual place). Ruby N. will discuss some data she has been collecting regarding motivation factors and a perceptual triad-classification task.
We will meet on April 2nd in room 8409 at 11:45. Sarah Miles will present data from her ongoing thesis work on category learning and visuo-spatial memory
Sarah Devantier will give a preliminary version of her brown-bag talk about some of the data we have collected in a think-aloud task with physicians. As always, we will meet at 11:45 in room 8409.
For our march 5th meeting we will read and discuss the paper by Poldrack and Foerde (2008),
Poldrack, R., & Foerde, K. (2008). Category learning and the memory systems debate. Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, 32, 197-205.
This paper is available on line, but email me if you need a copy. Although this paper is clearly in favour of Multiple memory systems, I’m hoping we get some idea of what the counter arguments might be, and how the memory systems literature informs category learning in general.
For the fall term (2008) the Categorization Lab will meet from 11:45 to 12:45 on Thursdays in room 8409 in the Social Science Centre
