    MacKenzie, Andrew Kerr; Harris, Julie (ACM siggraph, 2014-03-26) - Conference item
    Research into driving skill, particularly of hazard perception, often involves studies where participants either view pictures of driving scenarios or use movie viewing paradigms. However oculomotor strategies tend to ...
  • Children draw more affiliative pictures following priming with third-party ostracism 

    Song, Ruiting; Over, Harriet; Carpenter, Malinda (2015-06) - Journal article
    Humans have a strong need to belong. Thus, when signs of ostracism are detected, adults often feel motivated to affiliate with others in order to re-establish their social connections. This study investigated the importance ...
  • Children infer affiliative and status relations from watching others imitate 

    Over, Harriet; Carpenter, Malinda (2015-11) - Journal article
    We investigated whether young children are able to infer affiliative relations and relative status from observing others’ imitative interactions. Children watched videos showing one individual imitating another and were ...
  • Children's judgements of sameness-difference among schematic faces 

    Roy, Carolyn Mary (University of St Andrews, 1983) - Thesis
    Researchers have found that young children often make "confusion errors" in judging visual stimuli for sameness. That is, children are reported to treat as "just the same" stimuli that are not identical in all respects. ...
  • Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) gaze following in the informed forager paradigm : analysis with cross correlations 

    Hall, Katherine McGregor (University of St Andrews, 2012-06-19) - Thesis
    I tested two pairs of captive chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) in the informed forager paradigm: a subordinate saw the location of hidden bait, and then searched with a naïve dominant. This paradigm has tested what subjects ...
