Research: Lab Meetings

Lab meetings are a great way to be introduced to the most current work being conducted in specific fields of Psychology. Each week, a researcher will present and discuss and article, or their own study or proposal. This is a good chance to get to know more academics, and get more used to thinking scientifically. All you have to do is listen!

PERCEPTION LAB

My weekly lab meeting is concerned with perception (vision, hearing, and their interaction) and science practice. Attendance is typically 6-10 people, including undergraduates, honours students, PhD students, and postdocs. Meeting times are negotiated at the start of each term to attempt to accommodate all schedules. The current plan for T2 2019 is Wednesdays at 10-11am.

Undergraduates who are interested in perception and being involved in my lab are encouraged to contact me (d.mannion@unsw.edu.au) about attending lab meetings.

I do not take volunteer students, with the exception of students who wish to pursue their own research projects under my supervision. For ongoing projects, students are employed as casual research assistants depending on availability of funding and open positions.

BEHAVIOURAL LAB

The majority of the work discussed in the lab involves studies of non-human animals in memory, fear, anxiety and an emphasis on changes across development.

Lab meetings run most weeks on Tuesdays 10-11AM in 927 Mathews. Presentations vary from discussions of recent articles as a group, occasional guest speakers to presentation of recently collected data.

If you would be interested in attending, please contact me for more details.

HUMAN LEARNING AND COGNITION

We have a joint lab meeting – the main theme is research on learning in humans, though we also talk about cognitive psychology research more widely. Presentations often involve lab members talking about recent data, but can also be discussions of interesting articles or plans for future experiments. Any undergraduates who are interested in this area are very welcome to attend.

Lab meetings run most weeks, and are currently held on Wednesdays 11am-12pm. The venue varies from week to week. If you would like to attend, please email Mike Le Pelley (m.lepelley@unsw.edu.au) and we’ll add you to the mailing list.
