Members of staff from the Department of Psychology are going to be delivering a range of interesting and topical sessions at the Festival of Learning.
On the Talbot Campus Dr Sarah Bate will be conducting a live experiment that will let you know if you are one of a small number of people who are super-recognisers, and will also be giving a talk entitled ‘Face blindness: Living in a word of strangers’ on Tuesday the 10th of June.
Dr Katherine Appleton will be giving several talks on likes and dislikes of fruit and confusion surrounding the 5-a-day healthy eating message, with suggestions about how these messages can be made clearer.
On the Lansdowne campus Professor Sine McDougall will be talking about the psychology of website design and what determines website appeal, whilst Dr Andy Mayers will be discussing the important issue of maternal mental health. Dr Mayers will also be delivering an event later in the week on the Talbot Campus on the topic of sleep problems in children.
