Data wrangling in R

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Host: Pablo Gomez (CSUSB) Date: April 14, 2020 Time: 12:00pm EDT (GMT -4) As social scientists, we spend a considerable amount of our time cleaning, selecting, and managing our data; yet, most of us never received formal instruction on such methods and hence have developed idiosyncratic ways to wrangle data. These methods are often not sharable, not reproducible, and —I will speak for myself here — are not practices that we are particularly proud of. In this office hour, I…

Using online databases

April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Host: Victor Kuperman (McMaster University) Date: April 21, 2020 Time: 12:00pm EDT (GMT -4) A large number of behavioural datasets in multiple languages were made available for psycholinguists in the last decades. These include both databases with outcomes of behavioural tasks (lexical decision, eye-tracking, naming, semantic classification); databases with judgements or ratings on lexical variables (age-of-acquisition, imageability, affect, concreteness); and corpora documenting natural language productions. All these sources can be fruitfully used for doing psycholinguistic research without a lab, i.e.,…

Collaborative Remote Research with Gitlab and PsychoPy3

May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Host: Jordan Gallant Date: May 12, 2020 Time: 12pm - 1pm Eastern Time (GMT -4) "The COVID-19 pandemic has forced our research activities out of the lab and into online virtual environments. Not only has this changed the research methods available to us, but it has also fundamentally changed the way the that we work together. However, this office hour is here to say that this change need not be for the worse. Collaborative remote work can offer distinct advantages when…

Introduction to Bayesian Inference

June 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Host: Noam Siegelman, Haskins Laboratories Date: June 2, 2020 Time: 12pm – 1pm Eastern Time (GMT -4) "Can Bayesian inference serve as an alternative to classical statistical methods based on Null Hypothesis Significance Testing (NHST)? This virtual office hour will serve as a brief introduction to this exciting alternative analytical approach. We will go over basic concepts such as prior and posterior distributions, review the conceptual differences between Bayesian inference and NHST, and discuss the relation between Bayesian parameter estimation…

Doing Research at a Distance: Ethical Challenges and Opportunities

June 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Hosts: Eva Kehayia (McGill University/CRIR) & Anik Nolet (CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l'Île-de-Montréal) Date: June 9, 2020 Time: 12pm – 1pm Eastern Time (GMT -4) In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, research with human participants has either stopped or is forced to be conducted differently and at a distance. We explore some of the potential ethical challenges and opportunities from the perspective of the Research Ethics Board, the researchers, and the participants.  We then present an example of a research project…

Incorporating Neuropsychological Tests into Experimental Research

July 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-4

Host: Simritpal Malhi, Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Date: July 28, 2020 Time: 12pm – 1pm Eastern Time (GMT -4) This virtual office hour is for researchers who are interested in incorporating neuropsychological tests into their experimental paradigms. I will discuss how to determine whether you should be using such tests and introduce some examples of tests that tap into various cognitive domains and emotional/personality variables. I will also discuss ethical and legal considerations. Finally, I will suggest an area for future research involving the management of big data (i.e., neuropsychological norms).…
