Do we control language or does language control us? – Professor Guillaume Thierry, School of Psychology, Bangor University, Wales.

May 5 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Ground Floor Lecture Theatre, Department of Psychology,

In this talk, I will show how bilingual adults spontaneously access native translations of second language words unconsciously and unknowingly stop accessing these representations when second language words are unpleasant. Even more surprising, bilinguals unconsciously access the sound of words in their native language while speaking in their second. More surprising still, cross-language effects extend to the domain of syntax: Welsh-English bilinguals spontaneously transfer to English a morpho-phonological transformation rule of Welsh that is entirely alien to their native language!…

Decoding the population activity of grid cells for spatial localization and goal-directed navigation – Andreas V.M. Herz, Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Munich and Faculty of Biology, LMU Muenchen

May 8 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The Hodgkin Huxley Seminar Room, Department of Physiology Development and Neuroscience,

Mammalian grid cells discharge when an animal crosses the points of an imaginary hexagonal grid tessellating the environment. In this talk, I will show how animals can use this code by reading out the grid-cell population activity across multiple spatial scales. The theory explains key experimental results, makes testable predictions for future physiological and behavioral studies, and provides a mathematical foundation for the concept of a "neural metric" for space. For goal-directed navigation, the proposed allocentric grid-cell representation can be…

The biological basis and perceptual impact of categorisation: the case of colour. – Professor Anna Franklin, The Sussex Colour Group, School of Psychology, University of Sussex

May 12 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Ground Floor Lecture Theatre, Department of Psychology,

The grouping of discriminable entities or sensations into categories provides essential structure for thought and language, enabling efficiency in both cognition and communication. The domain of colour has provided a fertile testing ground for questions on how the human mind categorises sensory continua, and on the effect of categories on perception. There has been much debate about whether categorisation of the continuum of colour into categories such as red, green, blue is arbitrary or whether colour categories are determined by…
