It was a good week in the #memorylab. I made my first public radio appearance on Tuesday, on St. Louis on the Air. You can listen to the 30-minute segment by clicking here. I had a great time, and the folks in the St. Louis Public Radio office were very professional and friendly. Hopefully I'll do something worth inviting me back for someday.
We also said farewell to Steven Smith, who had been visiting WUSTL for the semester and is now headed back to his post at Texas A&M University. He was in St. Louis just long enough for us to put our heads together for the beginnings of a project investigating high confidence false memories for face materials. See a recent paper by Deffler, Brown, and Marsh (2014) for related research.
Deniz and I have been working hard on interpreting the data we collected for the fourth study of my dissertation. Whether it goes into the actual thesis remains to be seen, though, since it is a pretty thick dataset.
And tonight is the first Psychology Department Holiday Party in my six years here that's not being held in Room 216. If you're in the department and have RSVP'd, I hope to see you Upstairs at the Cheshire this evening. The festivities won't be too prolonged, though, considering there's a Frostbite Series 12K at 8:30 the next morning!
