      In nature, many animals build structures that can be readily measured at the scale of their gross morphology (e.g. length, volume and weight). Capturing individuality as can be done with the structures designed and built ...
    • Linking personality and cognition : a meta-analysis 

      Dougherty, Liam Robert; Guillette, Lauren Mary (2018-09-26) - Journal item
      In the past decade, several conceptual papers have linked variation in animal personality to variation in cognition, and recent years have seen a flood of empirical studies testing this link. However, these results have ...
    • Memory inhibition across the lifespan 

      Teale, Julia C. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-23) - Thesis
      Age can affect memory performance. This statement is so often heard that it has become almost a truism. When research surrounding memory inhibition – the ability to ignore irrelevant material to aid in the retrieval of a ...
    • Two independent mechanisms for motion-in-depth perception : evidence from individual differences 

      Nefs, Harold; O'Hare, Louise; Harris, Julie (2010-10-12) - Journal article
      Our forward-facing eyes allow us the advantage of binocular visual information: using the tiny differences between right and left eye views to learn about depth and location in three dimensions. Our visual systems also ...
