Please see attached: Opportunity in Psychopathy and Transgenerational
Date to apply will extend to: May 30th
I am looking for five student volunteers within the psychology program.
These would ideally be students that would be interested in gaining
experience in academic research (in terms of how a study begins, how the
data is collected, and the process involved in publication). This is such
an invaluable experience for those planning on pursuing a career in the
psychology field; or in any graduate field for that matter. The students
should also be those who are interested in the ways in which social
impacts perceptions and experience and of the role of genetic adaptation
in the development of certain psychopathologies.
The five positions that I have open are within these specialized area:
1) Child abuse/Trauma/Stress/Witnessing Violence
3) Transgenerational Epigenetics/Epigenetic inheritances
4) General Psychopathy
Ideally (but not necessarily) the student would have a background or basic
knowledge of the area for which they choose to apply.
The role of the student researcher would be to examine their assigned
area; to brainstorm within the group and bounce ideas off of each other;
to inform the group (myself especially) as to the specifics of their area
especially in terms of the extent to which it can apply to the research
topic (psychopathy and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance); and to
contribute to the project overall (whether that be through writing short
pieces OR by contributing to the group via discussions at the meetings).
We would meet weekly to discuss the project and the intersecting points of
our specific research areas.

“Social Perception in the Visual Domain in those with ASD and in typical visual processing”
In this talk I will describe a programme of research exploring social perception that is motivated by evolutionary psychology. Evidence of functional specialization is of central interest to evolutionary psychologists: When we observe and describe a trait, evolution minded scientists want to know what that trait was designed for. This is no less true in psychology, where evolutionary psychologists
describe psychological functions in terms of their function: How is the mind designed to perceive, store and use available information? My particular focus is social perception, and I will describe evidence the visual system is designed to perceive animate motion, biological motion and emotional facial expressions, and evidence that those with autism spectrum disorders may use deliberate strategies, rather than specialized visual processes, so solve these visual problems.
