  • Visual perception in a snapshot 

    Elliott, Mark (Springer, 2006-04-14)
    To study visual perception in its sub-second scale of time continues to be timely: we have more unsolved puzzles than bits of a firm undisputable knowledge about how our perceptions are created in a snapshot of time. ...
  • Cultivating thought-full and creative thinkers: A comment on quality merging Costa with Claxton et al. 

    Hogan, Michael. J. (Elsevier, 2006-05-15)
    The two keynote papers in the first issue of Thinking Skills and Creativity provide significant food for thought. Working to teach thinking skills and creativity is a real challenge. Many university professors shadow this ...
  • Electrophysiological correlates of similarity-based interference during detection of visual forms 

    Elliott, Mark (MIT Press, 2006-06)
    Illusory figure completion demonstrates the ability of the visual system to integrate information across gaps. Mechanisms that underlie figural emergence support the interpolation of contours and the filling-in of form ...
  • Grappling with gene-culture co-evolution 

    Hogan, Michael J. (The Irish Psychologist, 2006-06)
    Human beings strive to understand. Understanding helps us to survive, adapt, and flourish. A central theme in the history of philosophical and religious thought has been the call to "know thyself" and to "understand thy ...
  • A moment to reflect upon perceptual synchrony 

    Elliott, Mark (MIT Press, 2006-10)
    How does neuronal activity bring about the interpretation of visual space in terms of objects or complex perceptual events? If they group, simple visual features can bring about the integration of spikes from neurons ...
  • Against didacticism 

    Hogan, Michael J. (2006-10)
    Quality thinking and quality teaching are desirable but difficult to achieve. Although lectures are necessary to teach information, one cannot rely on them to promote critical and constructive thinking skills. Nevertheless, ...
  • The effects of subthreshold synchrony on the perception of simultaneity 

    Elliott, Mark (Springer, 2007)
    We aimed to examine the effects of subthreshold synchrony and asynchrony on the perception of simultaneity. We rendered simultaneous or asynchronous luminance changes below detection thresholds by embedding them in a ...
  • The effects of subthreshold synchrony on the perception of simultaneity. 

    Elliott, Mark (Springer, 2007)
    We aimed to examine the effects of subthreshold synchrony and asynchrony on the perception of simultaneity. We rendered simultaneous or asynchronous luminance changes below detection thresholds by embedding them in a ...
  • Closure of salient regions determines search for a collinear target configuration 

    Elliott, Mark (Psychonomic Society, 2007-01)
    Grouping operations offer an effective mechanism by which to structure complex visual scenes. Among the various principles that support element integration, closure may be regarded as a main factor in shape extraction. In ...
  • Oscillatory priming and form complexity 

    Elliott, Mark (Psychonomic Society, 2007-02)
    Detection of a target grouping is expedited when the target display is preceded by presentation of an oscillating premask that includes priming elements presented intraphasically and below detection threshold at the display ...
  • Work-life integration 

    Hogan, Michael J.; Hogan, Victoria (The Irish Psychologist, 2007-05)
    Work is an integral part of life. Human adaptation implies acquisition of the means to sustain life. But there is more to life than work: there is personal life, family life, and life within one's social network and culture ...
  • The contrasting impact of global and local object attributes on Kanizsa figure detection 

    Elliott, Mark (Psychonomic Society, 2007-11)
    Studies on the involvement of object completions in search for illusory figures have so far reported equivocal results. We have addressed this issue by investigating at which level object attributes in Kanizsa figures ...
  • Low time resolution in schizophrenia: Lengthened windows of simultaneity for visual, auditory and bimodal stimuli 

    Elliott, Mark (Elsevier, 2007-12)
    The guarantee of perceptual coherence for events through everyday life situations depends upon the capacity to correctly integrate series of multi-sensory experiences. Patients with schizophrenia have been shown to reveal ...
  • The analysis and treatment of problem behavior evoked by auditory stimulation 

    Devlin, Sarah; Healy, Olive; Reed, Phil; Leader, Geraldine (Elsevier, 2008)
    The current study aimed to identify specific stimuli associated with music that served as an establishing operation (EO) for the problem behavior of a 6 year old child with a diagnosis of autism. Assessment results ...
  • Advancing the dialogue between inner and outer empiricism. 

    Hogan, M.J. (2008)
    In a recent contribution to New Ideas in Psychology, Seán Ó Nualláin draws out a distinction between inner and outer empiricism, and suggests that consciousness research can benefit from analysis in both directions, that ...
  • Modest systems psychology: A neutral complement of positive psychological thinking. 

    Hogan, M. J (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008)
    The positive psychology movement has recently reconfigured the thinking of psychologists by bringing to the forefront of enquiry a scientific focus on positive emotions, character strengths, and human virtue, the ultimate ...
  • Dimensionality and reliability assessment of the Pain Patient Profile questionnaire 

    McGuire, Brian E.; Hogan, Michael J.; Morrison, Todd G. (2008-02)
    Objective: To factor analyze the Pain Patient Profile questionnaire (P3; Tollison & Langley, 1995), a self-report measure of emotional distress in respondents with chronic pain. Method: An unweighted least squares factor ...
  • Comparing temporal event-coding in patients with first episode psychosis and chronic schizophrenia 

    Schmidt, Heike; McFarland, John; McDonald, Colm; Elliott, Mark (Elsevier, 2008-06)
    Cognitive impairments are a core feature of schizophrenia. It has been suggested that the underlying cause of the cognitive deficits in schizophrenia is an impaired ability to sequence mental activity in time. Various ...
  • Visual field and task influence illusory figure responses 

    Elliott, Mark (Wiley, 2008-11)
    In normal viewing conditions, many objects are often hidden or occluded by others, therefore restricting the information that enters the eye. One ability that the human visual system has developed to compensate for this ...
  • The Effect of Stimulus Salience on Over-selectivity 

    Reed, Phil; McMoreland, Claire; Loughnane, Ann; Leader, Geraldine (Springer, 2009)
    The influence of stimulus salience on over-selective responding was investigated in the context of a comparator theory of over-selectivity. In Experiments 1 and 2, participants were presented with two cards, each displaying ...
