Research

Lateralization of Function: Age-Related Reduction in Hemispheric Asymmetry

Currently, Dr. Drumheller, in collaboration with Dr. Bacon, is investigating visuospatial processing in older adults. It is well established that certain cognitive processes such as language, episodic/semantic memory and visuospatial functions are largely lateralized in one hemisphere of the brain. However, recent evidence suggests that the brains of high-performing older adults may show less hemispheric asymmetry compared to young adults and low-performing older adults. This reduction in lateralization is believed to be linked to compensatory mechanisms that help to counteract age-related declines in cognitive performance. Using a lateralized Stroop task, Dr. Drumheller intends to confirm that high-performing older adults indeed show less hemispheric asymmetry in the visuospatial domain and to map the developmental curve of these effects.

Her research integrates areas of health psychology, personality, and lifespan development, and focuses on how individuals can successfully manage health-related challenges across the lifespan. Her current research goals focus on identifying and measuring specific motivational strategies in coping with functional disability, and how these strategies relate to both physical health (e.g., hormonal and immunology functioning) and psychological outcomes (e.g., depressive symptoms) across years among young-old and older-old adults. Her long-term goal is to apply these findings to the development and evaluation of a community-based intervention program aimed at facilitating the adjustment of unattainable goals among older adults with functional disability.

Dr. Marcantoni has been a member of the Department of Psychology since 2006. He is presently teaching courses in several areas including Neuropsychology and Methodology. His research interests revolve around the neural structures underlying the temporal limitations of visual attention. When attention must be allocated to two successive (time) relevant stimuli there is often a cost in processing measured as an increase in response time or in error rate. A series of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) experiments performed by Dr. Marcantoni with young adults identified a group of cortical regions that may be responsible for the control of visual attention across time. Current avenues of research examine how these networks are modified through factors such as stress, aging, and by neurological damage (i.e. Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease).

Research

Crime Judgments

This project concerns attitudes towards capital punishment.  Although the death penalty was officially abolished in Canada in 1998, research by Honeyman and Ogloff shows that many Canadians would welcome its use.  Although scales have been developed to measure support for capital punishment, their properties have not been systematically assessed. One purpose of Dr. McKelvie’s research is to revise a traditional scale that was developed by Peterson and Thurstone in 1933 scale and to examine its properties. To this end, he has created the Questionnaire on Capital Punishment (QCP) and has evaluated its reliability and validity.

A second goal of this research is to examine whether attitude towards capital punishment also predicts beliefs about non-capital sentencing. This is relevant to the theoretical question of whether attitude towards capital punishment reflects a deeper set of values, perhaps right-wing authoritarianism, and to the practical question of how American courts choose jurors who are “death qualified”.

Finally, the QCP is being used to examine whether exposure to the details of methods of execution affects people’s attitudes. Participants completed the QCP before and after reading details of the procedures in various methods of execution.

Errors in Cognition

One project explores a report of the anomalous finding that 9 can be judged greater than 221. In another, the hindsight effect is being investigated. It has been reported that when people are aware of an outcome they overestimate how likely they would have been to predict it. This project examines whether this occurs when the outcome is the result of football games.

Over the years her research has evolved around two major themes: 1) brain function in psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, drug dependence & ADHD; 2) sex and gender differences/similarities in emotion and cognitive processing in psychopathology and in health. Most recently she has combined her long-standing passion for Eastern Philosophy, Yoga and meditation to delve into contemplative studies.

She is a recipient of Bishop’s Research and Creativity Award and Mérite Estrien. Her classes at Bishop’s are in Abnormal Psychology, Brain & Behavior, Psychology of Drug Addiction, as well as Zen & the Brain.

Dr. Standing’s interests are in using controlled experiments to study cognitive and social processes, especially in such areas as short-term memory for pictures and words, perceptual judgement, and psychology of belief. He also enjoys using computers in various ways, especially to access the range of available databases, and teaching about computers as a useful tool. At present he teaches research methods, computers, social psychology, cognition and perception. His research interests are in the areas of cognition, memory, and social psychology.

Research

One area of research interest for Dr. Standing is picture memory: the human capacity to effortlessly process large quantities of pictorial information. The central problem explored is why memory for pictures is so much better than that for visually presented words, even when the same item is represented in each kind of stimulus. Much work to date has explored various aspects of picture memory, but few studies have attempted to explain the reasons for pictorial superiority.

Another line of research for Dr. Standing involves judgments of the concentration of alcohol in drinks. Previous studies had indicated a nonlinear relationship between the actual concentration of a drink and its perceived strength for both alcohol and other tastants. Dr. Standing’s work to date on this matter has indicated a surprising degree of accuracy in people’s judgments of the strength of a drink, higher than is usually found in tasks which require subjects to estimate the strength of solutions by taste. The functions found to date in some cases indicate an exponent of unity (1.0) for alcohol in Stevens’ law. This is a very unusual finding which indicates that neither response compression nor response expansion is occurring, unlike what has been found to happen in many hundreds of other psychophysical tasks. Further, this accuracy appears not be impaired by the presence of masking flavours, but actually increased by them. Again, this does not correspond to the large number of studies done on taste masking in other kinds of solutions. So in two ways, the accuracy of alcohol perception appears to be unusual and should repay further study.

Dr. Stout has been a member of the department since 1987. Presently he is teaching courses in Statistics, History of Psychology and Learning & Memory. Given his background in the history and philosophy of science, his research interests focus on the history of psychology (19th Century British Psychology, Ancient Greek Philosophy/Psychology) and knowledge generating practices (history of statistics and research design). These interests compliment and enrich the perspective from which he teaches his courses. Dr. Stout has been a recipient of the Chancellor’s Teaching Award (2003).

Research

Philosophy

Professor Stout’s research in philosophy deals primarily with topics in the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of science and ancient thought. His published work lies in the area of psychology. But he has made regular presentations to the Philosophy Department – most recently at a conference on Plato’s Meno sponsored by the Bishop’s Plato Group. His current projects include a book length study of philosopher/psychologist James Ward and a set of short stories.

Psychology

  1. Dr. Stout’s most recent interest rests with sorting through Plato’s psychology, and in particular, the way Plato approached learning and memory. Although it is clear that this topic runs through most of the Dialogues, Dr. Stout has been drawn to Plato’s Meno and the demonstration of learning featured in that dialogue with the slave boy.  He presented a paper on this topic to a conference on the Meno held in 2003. Presently Dr. Stout is outlining a larger study that will bring together Plato’s three Dialogues the Gorgias, Protagoras and Meno to clarify Plato’s sense of what it means to learn and to be taught.  Dr. Stout is a long time member of the Plato Group meets every Friday to read through the Dialogues.

  2. While doing his Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh, Dr Stout worked with members of the Science Studies Unit, Dr. Donald Mackenzie in particular. The ‘sociology of knowledge’ perspective of the Science Studies Unit informed Dr. Stout’s early research into the history of statistics. Dr. Stout keeps an active interest in statistics mainly through teaching and helping students and faculty with their research analyses.  Although he has not kept an active research profile in publishing on statistics, he remains involved as a reviewer of publications on statistics.

  3. Dr. Stout became interested in the history of psychology while an undergraduate at the University of Calgary, principally due to the influence of Dr. Robert Weyant.  His first serious study of an historical topic was undertaken as a Master’s Thesis, which focused on the 19th Century British Psychologist James Ward. Dr. Stout’s interest in Ward remains to this day. He thinks that Ward was an exemplary thinker, particularly about the nature of science and psychology in the 19th century. Dr. Stout has gathered archival material and notes over the years in an effort to write a book length study of Ward.

  4. As a member of a small department, Dr. Stout is actively involved in the research of other members of the Department as well as with the Honour’s students. This has led to an array of publications on diverse topics. He enjoys the cooperative nature of working in a small department and sharing ideas across the broad field of psychology. Dr. Stout believes that we become informed about the wide spectrum of psychology not simply through reading, but by participating in research.
