The first paper from our Time & Causality in Cognitive Development project has been accepted for publication in Developmental Science, hurrah! We show that children as young as 4 years are susceptible to temporal binding -- when two events are causally related, the interval between them is experienced as shorter, compared with the same interval between two events that do not have a causal connection. This finding stands in contrast to previous research that suggested only adults experience temporal binding.
Excited to say that from January 2019 I will be taking up a position as Lecturer in Psychology at Birmingham City University.
I've posted my first preprint, which presents the findings of my first canine cognition study from my postdoc at U of T that investigated whether dogs really have a gravity bias. Read it here: https://psyarxiv.com/erzkf/
Delighted that my abstract has been accepted for the Budapest CEU Conference on Cognitive Development in January 2018, where I will be giving a talk on some of the work I've been doing in Cardiff investigating how causality influences children's perception of temporal order.
I have spent the past few weeks working with two fantastic Nuffield Research Placement students. We have been running studies with children at Techniquest in Cardiff Bay to investigate how causal knowledge influences their experience of time. Big thanks to everyone who has taken the time to participate in our research, and to all at Techniquest for being so accommodating.
