Psychonomics Seminar Series
Friday, 17th September 2004

The School of Psychology, University of Queensland is proud to present:
"Science is like an old Volkswagen campervan. While it often grinds to a halt with frustrating technical problems, when it does go, it’s very cool."
This week, 3pm Friday 17th September, in room 306, sees the Psychonomics Seminar Series welcome an exceptionally special guest, Dr Valerie Stone. Highlights of her prestigious career include obtaining a degree in Physics/Astrophysics from Harvard, a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from Stanford, and a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan. She has been Project Director of the Prevention Sciences Group at UCSF, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Neuroscience, UC Davis, a Visiting Scholar in Experimental Psychology at Cambridge University, and an Assistant Professor at the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Program, University of Denver. She is now a senior lecturer here at UQ.
In Valerie’s own words, “I look forward to a chance to stalk through the tall grass of attention research paradigms while avoiding the venomous serpents of experimental confounds.”
‘Made You Look: Emotion Combined with Eye Gaze Direction Recruits Attention.’
