It was a busy week for the MotorBias project last week as we had a flurry of conference paper acceptances. First up was Siobhan, whose abstract on oculomotor rehearsal in spatial WM was accepted for a talk at the upcoming Experimental Psychology Society meeting in Stirling. Given how fast the programme filled up, we think Siobhan must have gone the full Glastonbury to get a slot! Dan and Soazig will be heading up there too for moral support. It’s going to be our first post-covid meeting so we’re all really looking forward to it! Later in the summer Soazig will be heading to Leicester for a talk at ECEM 2022 on her recent work on the Remote Distractor Effect and Dan & Siobhan will be doing poster presentations at ECVP 2022 in Nijmegen. Siobhan will also be heading off to Poland for a workshop on modelling, so it’s going to be a hectic summer!
