Vortrag von Prof. Ben Jones, PhD (Glasgow): "Improving Social Perception Research Through Open Science Initiatives" am 06.12.2018

Am Donnerstag, dem 06.12.2018 freuen wir uns, Professor Ben Jones von der Universität Glasgow begrüßen zu dürfen. Im Rahmen eines gemeinsamen Kolloquiums des Leibniz Wissenschaftscampus Primatenkognition und der Abteilung für Biologische Persönlichkeitspsychologie wird er u.a. über aktuelle Ansätze zur Verbesserung von Robustheit und Generalisiertbarkeit in der Forschung zur sozialen Wahrnehmung von Gesichtern sprechen.

Psychological science suffers from many of the same problems as other biological sciences. For
example, low power, together with publication bias, means that a high proportion of published
results are likely to be false positives. Additionally, a lack of diversity in both study populations
and researchers limits the generalizability of published effects. My talk will highlight these issues
in relation to research on social perception of faces. More importantly, I will also describe our
lab’s recent work that has used open science initiatives to address these challenges. These initi-
atives include large-scale, world-wide multi-lab collaborations, registered reports, and the use
of data-driven, rather than theory-driven, approaches to understanding how we evaluate faces.
