The effects of threatening stimuli on visual search performance   GEMI, Room 1.110     6.00 - 8.00 pm   András Zsidó (University of Pécs, Hungary)  A large body of research suggests that threatening stimuli with evolutionary history have an advantage in visual processing. However, recent evidence indicates that modern threatening stimuli can have the same effect. Nonetheless, the results are often mixed. I will argue that prev ...

Vortrag: Mircea Zloteanu (UCL): Deception Detection: Emotions and Decision-Making under Uncertainty

zuletzt verändert: 14.12.2018 18:57

Abstract: In deception detection, individuals are told to rely on behavioural indices to discriminate lies and truths. A source of such indices are the emotions displayed by others. Emotional cues displayed by deceivers are presumed to be valuable to detecting deception. However, their usefulness as diagnostic cues have produced inconsistent results. I investigated multiple reasons for these inconsistencies. In a series of studies, the role ...
