Counterfactual thinking and comparative similarity

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | April 7 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Felipe de Brigard, Duke University

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Counterfactual thinking involves imagining hypothetical alternatives to reality. Philosopher David Lewis argued that people estimate the subjective plausibility that a counterfactual event could have occurred by comparing an imagined possible world in which the counterfactual statement is true against the current, actual world in which the counterfactual statement is false. Accordingly,...   More >

Hidden Hearing Loss: Synaptopathy in noise-induced and age related cochlear damage: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | April 17 | 4 p.m. | Tolman Hall, Beach Room 3105


Charles Liberman, Mass Eye & Ear Eaton Peabody Lab Boston

Department of Psychology


The classic view of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is that the “primary” targets are hair cells, and that cochlear-nerve loss is “secondary” to hair cell degeneration. Our recent work in mouse and guinea pig has challenged that view. In noise-induced hearing loss, exposures causing only reversible threshold shifts (and no hair cell loss) nevertheless cause permanent loss of >50% of...   More >

Objectivity and Trained Judgment: Toward an ethnography of experimental psychology

Seminar: ICBS Seminar | April 21 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall


Emily Martin, New York University

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


Historians of psychology have described how the "introspection" of early Wundtian psychology largely came to be ruled out of experimental psychology settings by the mid-20th century. In this talk I will take a fresh look at the years before this process was complete -- from the vantage point of early ethnographic and psychological field expeditions and from observing several current psychology...   More >
