Want to test your memory and support science at the same time? The SLAM lab at the University of York have developed a fun memory game for you to try: #quiz #puzzler #puzzling #puzzlefun #puzzlegames #ilovepuzzles #puzzled #puzzlelove #riddlemethis

We're looking for people to help us with a sleep study. Please share, or maybe have a go! Thanks.

As one of those involved in SPI-B, the Government advisory group on behavioural science, I can say that in a few short minutes tonight, Boris Johnson has trashed all the advice we have given on how to build trust and secure adherence to the measures necessary to control COVID-19.

It's a small relief to see colleagues with influence speaking out against this appalling spineless government

save the date: @NAPLIC 2021 conference will be on 8 May 2021 (in some form)! more details to follow, but do join us to learn about all things language and learning!

Check out this lovely song "Glue" with inventive summery lockdown video from @CEJpreston and band Prints in the Snow.

I'm looking for software that can generate #face #morphing videos for an experiment, ideally starting at a 50:50 blend and resolving to 100:0. Any ideas?

And could be useful! For instance in - we trained people on 'novel' words with/without providing meanings - @mggaskell might want to sleep on it ;)

Quoted @itjohnstone

Cash-strapped universities can save money by cancelling licences to expensive software and adopting #OpenSource alternatives. Here's a list in a thread. Please retweet & feel free to add more.

This could save Universities a small fortune - and by teaching students using open source, those students would still be able to use the software after they graduate #opensource #rstats @SoftwareSaved

Quoted @emljames

Happy journal paper today to meee! (and @L_M_Henderson and @mggaskell). We looked at word learning and consolidation in good and poor comprehenders. We taught them new vocabulary and tested memory over periods wake and sleep. (1/n)

This is a cracking study, as you might expect from the brilliant @emljames. Read it if you like sleep or words. Or both.

How's your primary school child getting on? Are they sleeping ok at the moment? Let us know via our questionnaire Sleep in a Time of Covid-19! #UniOfYork #SLAMlab #sleep #COVIDー19
