I am a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Deakin University bridging I/O psychology and statistics.

I'm quite active on the Cognitive Sciences and Statistics Stack Exchanges.

You can find me also on:

comment Are there cognitive benefits to two hand typing versus one finger?
@StevenJeuris . good point. I've divided the content into two clearer sections now.

comment What are the most well-understood vocal animal languages?
I imagine quantifying "well-understood" would be difficult. Does this list of well-studied non-primate animal languages meet your needs en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment How to adjust SSE or RMSE for the number of free parameters in the model?
This sounds more like a question better suited for stats.stackexchange.com . Is there an aspect of this that relates particularly to cognitive modelling?

comment How people choose at random
It would also be interesting to know whether people could be trained to choose more "randomly".

Welcome to the site. Please don't simultaneously cross-post on multiple stack exchange sites. biology.stackexchange.com/questions/6944/…

comment Is the Raspberry Pi capable of operating as a stimulus presentation system for experiments?
Interesting idea. What kinds of experiments were you planning on running with it? I wonder whether you'll get a better answer here or on raspberrypi.stackexchange.com

comment Quantify degree to which non-diagnostic features bias category-present response
(b) Given that participants do not know the true probabilities apriori nor whether they are stable over time, how does Bayesian updating of probability estimates or probability matching relate to your conception of the correct response over time?

comment Quantify degree to which non-diagnostic features bias category-present response
I just had a couple of queries: (a) Assuming that a feature of an object is perfectly unrelated to being in a category. I.e., probability of category membership is 50%. Then expected number correct would be identical irrespective of the response strategy used (i.e., always say yes, always say no, 70% yes, etc.). Thus, how can you say that responding "yes" 50% of the time is "correct"?

comment What is the scientific support for Einstein's claim about the negative effects of reading too much?
It seems there are two issues: (1) what is the scientific claim implicit in the quote; and (2) what is the support for that claim once disambiguated. I've tweaked the title to perhaps better capture this twofold issue.

comment What is the support for a global personality factor?
I know that when I've used the IPIP measure of the Big 5, I've typically obtained average scale intercorrelations of around r=.20 to r=.30.

comment How do graphic objects in data visualisation facilitate ease of interpretation?
Interesting topic. Feel free to also ask the specific question that you mention at the end as a separate question. e.g., How can proportions best be communicated graphically to a general audience in order to communicate risk?

comment Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Limitations
It's an interesting question, but you'll probably need to refine your scope: (a) what kind of therapy are you talking about? (b) what class of symptoms or disorders are you covering?

comment Public domain scientific intelligence test available for use in research
I just accepted the answer to show appreciation. I'm still open to further suggestions. For now, I'd still use proprietary measures for intelligence testing.

comment Are there any cognitive models for visual navigation?
Hi Javier, it's great to have someone who has written a PhD on the topic provide an answer. Would you be able to summarise how your thesis answers the question or alternatively quote any relevant passages (e.g., your abstract)? Also, is the full-text PDF available anywhere on the internet?

comment What reasoning processes underlie the Logima Strictica 36 and Logicaus Strictimanus 24?
It is not the role of this site to provide answers to public IQ tests, especially where such resources could serve to reduce the public value of such tests. I've given the question a tweak to focus on the psychological question. I.e., what reasoning processes underlie the test?

comment Free online intelligence test with norm table, high reliability, and must be printable?
Thanks for sharing. Just to clarify, this test looks like an SAT reasoning test and there is a conversion table (but it is from raw to SAT points, thus, an additional conversion to IQ would be required as well as a discussion of the degree to which it is a reasonable proxy for IQ). Is there any documentation about this test (i.e., copyright, explanation of what the scale was intended to measure, explanation of norm development, IQ correlates, etc). Is it the actual SAT test from 2002? or just a practice test that the organisation has developed?

+1 Hi Adam, thanks for the detailed answer. I'll start reading through your points.

comment How does appreciation for music change over time for the same person?
I've tweaked the question just a little bit. It's obvious from personal experience that the experience of music can change over time. I think the psychological question is "how" does such experience tend to change over time. I.e., what regularities has empirical research shown exist regarding the experience of music over time.
