Read my eyes: how language guides visual perception

Dr Srdan Medimorec (School of Languages and Cultures)
We often take language for granted. However, language learning and processing involve a complex interplay of various cognitive processes. One exciting method that gives researchers an opportunity to tap into these processes is eye-tracking. In this talk, I will present results from a series of experiments that use eye-tracking to investigate how sensitive people are to patterns in language, and how this is related to other types of pattern learning. My talk will also include a hands-on (eyes-on!) eye-tracking demonstrations.

The science of gratitude

Can simply saying or showing thanks improve your life? According to the latest research, the answer is “yes”. A growing evidence-base shows that being grateful can have many benefits, including better physical health, enhanced well-being, and even better sleep. This research challenges the idea that grateful people already have more to be thankful for, as the benefits have been found for healthy individuals and those dealing with long-term health conditions. Come learn about the ways to cultivate a grateful mind-set, and the benefits of noticing and appreciating the positive things in life.
