>>Details 04.29.2013eventLecture by Dr. Gregory Francis on replication in psychology Title: The psychology of replication and replication in psychology Abstract: Many scientists believe that repeated successful replications of an experiment are the best way to demonstrate the validity of an empirical finding. Although this belief is often described as a foundation of an empirical science, it is wrong. When success is measured by rejecting a null hypothesis, the replication rate should follow the rules of probability. If the frequency of rejecting the null hypothesis is inconsistent with the power of reported experiments, then there is some type of publication bias. Regrettably, when there is publication bias, the set of experiments should be considered non-scientific. I will demonstrate how to test for too much successful replication and will provide examples of how publication bias contaminates important studies in experimental psychology. If time permits, I will discuss a different way of scientific practice that avoids publication bias by ignoring replication. Where: Psychology 230 When: Monday, April 29 at 5:30 pm

I approach self-regulation from a relational developmental systems perspective, and I work to understand how individuals align domain-specific self-regulation skills with facets of their unique contexts. I am also a quantitative methodologist; I not only apply advanced multivariate methods to my own research, but I also treat quantitative methodology as a research domain. My quantitative research focuses on latent variable models, multilevel models, and issues related to scale creation and validation. In this talk I summarize my research on self-regulation and highlight ways I have integrated this research with my methodological interests. I then briefly discuss future directions for my research.

Have you ever wondered what the fuss about this Bayesian data analysis stuff is and why it seems to be gaining momentum? 
Perhaps you have been tracking the exciting methodological discussions in psychology like the the Daryl Bem studies on psi and pre-cognition and recently the number of issues regarding replication and fabrication. If you have, then you will know the approach of Bayesian data analysis has been brought up regularly as a means to address some of these problems (e.g., interpreting the null, data peeking). 
Or perhaps you have been talking to people from from other fields (e.g., agriculture, biology, economics, epidemiology, genetics, poly sci) and have noticed an increase in the use of Bayesian data analyses where they report things like a posterior distributions, Bayes factors, etc.
Or maybe you have always found it odd to think about p values and NHST and have heard Bayesian methods offer an attractive alternative.
Regardless, the QMES concentration with help from the Psychology Department and the MSU Cognitive Science program have invited Dr. John Kruschke to come give a talk and a 1 day workshop on DOING BAYESIAN DATA ANALYSIS. Come join us so you too can learn how to do Bayesian data analysis. 
When: 
Friday September, 14 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm (Introductory Talk) in 118 Psychology
Saturday September 15 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm (workshop) at 
The James B. Henry Center for Executive Development

Since the 1990s, thousands of untested sexual assault kits (SAKs) have been discovered in police and crime lab facilities throughout the United States. In August 2009, a tour of a Detroit Police Department property storage room turned up 11,000+ SAKs dating back to the 1980’s. Most of these kits were never submitted to the crime lab for DNA analysis. Most of these rapes were not investigated or prosecuted. To address to this problem, key stakeholders, including the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police Crime Lab, and Detroit-area victim service organizations, have agreed to work together in an action research project to study why this happened and how it can be ended. This presentation will describe the extent of the problem in Detroit and present preliminary findings as to the underlying reasons why so many SAKs were never processed by the police.

Topics to be addressed include the measurement of nonindependence, the Actor-Partner Interdependence Model, the analysis of distinguishable and indistinguishable dyads, and the analysis of over-time dyadic data (e.g., dyadic growth curve models).  Time permitting, we will also discuss the analysis of designs when an individual is engaged in multiple dyadic relationships or interactions (e.g., therapists with multiple clients). The software package used in the workshop will be SPSS. Although the workshop does not require any prior knowledge or experience with multilevel modeling, participants are expected to have a working knowledge of multiple regression and analysis of variance, as well as SPSS.   This four-day workshop (with an optional ½ day on Friday) will include a lecture component with hands-on application of the material covered in lecture, as well as one-on-one consultation meetings concerning participants’ actual research and data analytic questions.  There will be time for individual meetings with workshop instructors from 3:00pm to 5:00pm each afternoon, as well as on Friday morning 9:00-11:00. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring their own data so that they can apply these new methods to their own projects.

>>Details 12.06.2010eventCognitive Science Distnguished Speaker Series (5:30pm, 116 Natural Science) Professor Robert Zatorre McGill University Anatomical and functional organization or the human auditory cortex: Pitch, speech, and plasticity In this lecture we will consider functional and structural neuroimaging findings dealing with the organization of the human auditory cortex for the processing of complex acoustic signals. We focus on the processing of pitch patterns, how this processing changes as a function of experience, and the interactions between auditory and parietal cortical systems involved in higher-order aspects of pitch processing. We will start by examining the evidence for specialization of auditory cortex for the analysis of pitch, reviewing converging evidence that a region in the right lateral Heschlâ??s gyrus plays a particularly important role in the representation of pitch. We will then consider how musical training interacts with the organization of this pitch-processing system. Our evidence suggests not only that training has consequences on anatomy and function, but also that pre-existing differences in the properties of this system may affect behavioral performance on relevant pitch tasks. We then go on to consider processing beyond auditory cortex, examining the function of a dorsal pathway which has traditionally been thought of as visuospatial in nature. We show that the intraparietal cortex plays an important role in transformations of tonal pitch patterns both in the frequency and in the time domain. Taken together, the findings yield insights into the functional characterization of perceptual pathways and inform us about structure-function relationships in higher-order cognitive processes.

>>Details 04.17.2010eventPsychology Multicultural Student Conference: Touching and Transforming Lives Michigan State University, Union Building – 2nd Floor, Saturday, April 17, 2010 WHY ATTEND: According to the 2000 Census, the data shows us that individuals of a different race constitute approximately 25% of the United States population. We can project that this trend of increased “minorities” will continue and the minority may soon become the majority. The implication of this shift in population is significant for those who teach, conduct research and who will work in the community. This projected change in demographics will require 1) an increased representation of diverse people of color in the field/profession and 2) more research on multicultural issues. With these changes, we hope to begin to impact the field and actively engage students in pursuing this unchartered area of Psychology. These changes will help achieve a minimum level of multicultural understanding that will help meet the mental health needs of this diverse, multicultural society. WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Diversity is an integral part of getting a degree, especially for those desiring to work with people and in the community. This conference aims to introduce and highlight research, practices and issues in the area of multicultural psychology to undergraduates as well as graduate students in Psychology and Behavioral Sciences. Students will see the breadth and depth of multicultural issues in the areas they wish to pursue. The proposed presenters have demonstrated their knowledge and skills through their active engagement in multiculturalism in their research, publications, committee work and public service.
