Cognitive Arithmetic: News from Transfer of Learning

Over the last few years, work in my lab has studied memory for everyday arithmetic facts (e.g., 2 + 4 = 6) through the phenomena of retrieval-induced interference as well as facilitative transfer of learning through generalization of practice. I will review some of this recent transfer work and also talk about new, as yet published findings. The retrieval-induced interference phenomena are challenging because they appear to imply a type of inhibitory mechanism (competitor inhibition below baseline) that no theory of cognitive arithmetic currently explains. The generalization data potentially have important implications for recent claims that adult’s skilled performance of simple addition may be based on fast counting procedures rather than based on fact retrieval from semantic memory. In another application, retrieval-induced interference and generalization phenomena also suggest that strong bilinguals may possess language-specific arithmetic memory networks.

“Contextual modulation of information processing in the mouse early visual system”

 

organized by the Research Unit:

On Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 at 9.00 am

 

 

Location: PSI 01.07, Psychology Department, Tiensestraat 102, 3000 Leuven

 

 

ABSTRACT

 

In the first part of my talk I will discuss how behavioural context shapes information processing in the mouse early visual system. I will present data from V1, dLGN, and the pupil, and show that locomotion de-correlates V1 population responses, affects response magnitude and selectivity at the level of the dLGN, and that locomotion speed is correlated with pupil size.

In the second part of my talk I will turn to stimulus context and discuss how cortico-thalamic feedback contributes to surround suppression in the dLGN. I will show that cortico-thalamic feedback modulates both temporal responses properties and spatial integration of mouse dLGN neurons. Together, this demonstrates that context can have profound influences on early stages of visual processing.

Abstract:

The effects of emotion on cognition and of cognition on emotion are commonly examined in separate cross-sectional studies.  We currently understand little about the stability and/or change in cognition/emotion relationships over time, or how these changes affect problem solving.  It is evident, for example, that math problem solving places demands on working memory (WM) which may elicit anxiety/worry and, in turn, affect performance.  It is also evident that anxiety/worry reduces WM capacity which, in turn, affects math reasoning abilities.  Moreover, research that has examined emotion/cognition relationships in math has tended to focus on arithmetic problem solving, and has not examined their impact in other areas of math reasoning.  The focus on arithmetic reasoning is problematic since arithmetic is likely to be highly familiar to most students and, as a consequence, may be less affected by emotion and cognition factors than other math domains (e.g., algebra).  In this talk I describe the findings from a set of studies in which I investigated the impact of WM-worry interactions on algebraic problem solving in young adolescent students.  The broad aims were to (1) characterize the relationships between different patterns of WM/worry relationships and the impact of different patterns on algebraic problem solving, and (2) investigate the stability/change of different patterns of WM/worry relationships over time, as well as their impact on problem solving. I show that different patterns of WM-worry relationships can be identified. As expected, High WM/Low Worry predicted problem solving success, whereas Low WM/High Worry predicted poor problem solving ability.  Moreover, different patterns of WM/Worry relationships tend to remain stable or change over a short time period.  Specifically, I use a bivariate latent difference score model to examine the ways in which WM and worry affect each other over the course of a single day, and how patterns of change affect algebraic problem solving.  It is evident that WM and Worry influence each other iteratively over time.  The implications of the findings are discussed in terms of current accounts of the impact of cognition and emotion on math problem solving.

The doctoral programme of Psychology and Educational Sciences announces :

a seminar:' Disability bioethics'

organized by Centre for the History of Education, Research Unit Education, Culture & Society

 

Abstract:

“Disability Bioethics” - This presentation explicates Harriet McBryde Johnson’s now canonical 2003 New York Times Magazine article, “Unspeakable Conversations: The Case for My Life” as a bioethical case study by applying narrative ethics, literary criticism, and rhetorical analysis. As a bioethical case study, Johnson’s narrative of the “case for my life” makes a strong claim for conserving disability, for what might be called—to follow Deaf studies—disability gain. Throughout this talk, I develop a framework for understanding and advancing disability bioethics.
