Incorporating Neuropsychological Tests into Experimental Research

July 28, 2020 @ 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).…

Cognitive Science of Language lecture series: Dr. Marco Marelli

January 25 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm UTC-5

Who: Marco Marelli (University of Milano-Bicocca, Milano, Italy) www.marcomarelli.net What: Compositional effects in the processing of compound words: A computational perspective grounded in linguistic and visual experience When: Monday January 25, 2021; 2:30-4:20 pm EST Where: Zoom Registration: https://mcmaster.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAlduyqrzMqG9HnqMOA1s0NZLhGj-bf2xtU Abstract: Since the seminal LSA proposal (Landauer & Dumais, 1997) distributional semantics has provided efficient data-driven models of the human semantic system, representing word meaning through vectors recording lexical co-occurrences in large text corpora. However, these approaches generate static descriptions of the semantic system, falling…
