PhD Conference: Adaptative Memory: Where are we now?

Date and time: 9/05/2019; 15:00

Registration: Please email ISCTE-IUL's PhD Programme Manager to register or find out more.

Abstract:
The "adaptative memory" perspective assumes that, like the rest of our body, our memory systems are also the result of an evolutionary process. Accordingly, we began exploring if the way our memory works somehow reflects the selection pressures humans likely encountered througout evolution. This talk will provide a brief of overview of the empirical work related to four fitness-relevant topics: survival, animacy, contamination, and reproduction.

Abstract:
R is a free, open source, cross platform language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It has rapidly become the industry standard for science. It also has a reputation for being more difficult to use than menu-driven stats packages such as SPSS. This workshop is a briefing for those who have not used R, but who want to know why it is so popular. It will begin by explaining what R is, how it differs from commercial packages and how it can be used with postgraduate students. It will then guide those who wish to try working with R from the initial stages of setup, through basic examples, to become familiar with the way you work with R.
