Science on Google+655,862Dr. Theodore (Ted) P. Pavlic, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at @116794495783422850685. @111099133387608816869 received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2010 from The Ohio State University where he learned to combine behavioral ecology and control theory to build algorithms that allow automation to make flexible decisions that are rational with respect to the current environment. Inspiration came from optimal foraging theory and cooperative breeding, and target applications ranged from military to the sustainable built environment. From 2010 to 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in Computer Science and Engineering studying cyber-physical systems of the future composed of fully autonomous and human driven cars operating in parallel in the cities of the near future. Since 2012, he has worked as a research scientist at Arizona State University in the social-insect laboratory of Stephen Pratt studying the collective decision-making processes of ants and honeybees. Not only have these studies inspired novel stochastic programming techniques for swarm robotics, but these animal models are also providing insights into the information structures that emerged at the origins of life. In August of 2015, he will join the engineering faculty of Arizona State University where he will use a variety of theoretical, computational, and empirical methods to study decision-making and organization across a wide range of artificial and natural systems. Potential graduate students interested in trans-disciplinary explorations of decision making are welcome to contact him to discuss opportunities. *Links* Personal website in desperate need of updating: http://www.tedpavlic.com/ Current host (Stephen Pratt) laboratory for ant work:  http://pratt.lab.asu.edu/ Collaborator (Sara Imari Walker) laboratory for info. theory work: http://emergence.asu.edu/ *Recommended Readings* Sean Wilson, Theodore P.

Jeffrey Hellman25,199One More Saturday Night is a show dedicated to fans of live music. The show has been given permission, by Ice Nine Publishing, for anyone to perform songs from their catalog. We really appreciate this. The show is also a place for folks to come and talk about their experiences on the road, and at concerts by the Grateful Dead. So many of us have had our lives and consciousness  changed and improved because we were there. So many of us discovered we were part of a family we didn't know existed until we met our brothers and sisters on the road when we needed them most. So, One More Saturday Night is a show that celebrates the stories, music and values given to us with the music, from the Grateful Dead. We welcome all musicians and songwriters. Performers on the show may play any original material they hold the rights to as well as any song from the Ice Nine catalog. All stories are welcome too.One More Saturday Night 10-25-142014-10-26 03:00:489

Scorpions are secretive, mysterious, and patient animals. What are they thinking as they wait for hours in their burrows? Although we can’t answer that yet, we can use a trick called electrophysiology to listen in to their nerve cells and to get a sense of what they perceive. It looks like mad science, but I will lead you through the maze of equipment we use, demystifying the process and explaining how easy and useful it actually is. _Cara Shillington, PhD (Department of Biology, Eastern Michigan University)_ *Male versus wild: Radio-tracking tarantulas*. Despite their notoriety and popularity in the pet trade, surprisingly little is known about tarantulas in their natural environment.  Where do they go and what do they do when they’re free of the glassy confines of your home aquarium? I will discuss many aspects of their life history and behavior both in captivity and in the wild.  Compared to most other arthropods, these animals are exceedingly long-lived (surviving 15 years or more in some cases).  Females remain in burrows for much of their lives, but matuScience HOAs2014-06-23 01:00:0077

Jeffrey Hellman25,199One More Saturday Night is a show dedicated to fans of live music. The show has been given permission, by Ice Nine Publishing, for anyone to perform songs from their catalog. We really appreciate this. The show is also a place for folks to come and talk about their experiences on the road, and at concerts by the Grateful Dead. So many of us have had our lives and consciousness  changed and improved because we were there. So many of us discovered we were part of a family we didn't know existed until we met our brothers and sisters on the road when we needed them most. So, One More Saturday Night is a show that celebrates the stories, music and values given to us with the music, from the Grateful Dead. We welcome all musicians and songwriters. Performers on the show may play any original material they hold the rights to as well as any song from the Ice Nine catalog. All stories are welcome too. If you are not familiar with Google Hangouts or how to use them, I can show you how it is done. All you need is a laptop or computer with a webcam and a decent internet connection. The rest is easy.

The main goal of this HOA series is to recreate a poster session-like atmosphere here on G+, so researchers can present their recent findings. Presentations will be grouped by discipline and individual presentations will last approximately 10 – 15 minutes. Do you have a recent conference presentation, manuscript, or book that you would like to share with the Google+ community? Do you want to give your undergraduate or graduate students practice presenting their research? If yes, then let us know by filling out this short form: http://goo.gl/e0KPhE. ================================ *Psychology Talks for Posterside Hangouts #1, Authors (Affiliations)* _When audition dominates vision: Evidence from cross-modal statistical learning_ +Chris Robinson (The Ohio State University at Newark) _Automatic selection of eye tracking variables in visual categorization for adults and infants_ +Samuel Rivera (The Ohio State University at Columbus) _Foreign accent does not influence cognitive judgments_ +Andre L.

Research examining interference effects shows that auditory input often interferes with processing of visual input in young children (i.e., auditory dominance effect), whereas visual input often interferes with auditory processing in adults (i.e., visual dominance effect). The current study used a cross-modal statistical learning task to examine modality dominance in adults. Participants ably learned auditory and visual statistics when auditory and visual sequences were presented unimodally and when auditory and visual sequences were correlated during training. However, increasing task demands resulted in an important asymmetry: Increased task demands attenuated visual statistical learning, while having no effect on auditory statistical learning. These findings are consistent with auditory dominance effects reported in young children and have important implications for our understanding of how sensory modalities interact while learning the structure of cross-modal information.

Dear +Google+, Please fix the porn problem. I can't even check my G+ stream without one of these sex event posts showing up (see left pic)!  Many of the large communities are getting bombarded with these posts. The problem is that anyone can spam up to five communities at the same time (see right pic), and these events automatically appear in everyone's stream. Given that some of these monster communities have over a million followers, with many kids in these communities, this gives spammers a very diverse and large audience. Please give moderators more control by either: (a) making it impossible for non-mods to post community events or (b) hiding community events from the public until they are approved by a moderator. Thanks in advance.

National Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio
The National Air Force Museum is really cool (and free)! You should definitely check it out if you are in the Dayton area. The lighting was really tricky inside the museum so some of the pictures are noisy/blurry. I am sharing many of these pics because the planes are really cool, not because I am proud of the picture quality.

Barbara McClintock on $10

Put a scientist on the $10 bill, sign the petition: barbaraonthebill.com/  
Scientists rarely seek fame. Barbara McClintock was no exception. After a life time of following her passion in a male-dominated environment, she finally began to receive the recognition that she deserved, wanted or not. Since the late 1960s, with the discovery of jumping genes in other organisms, scientists realized that jumping genes were in nearly every organism and began giving McClintock public credit for her first publications. The full recognition came when McClintock was 80 years old. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, the only woman to win that award unshared, and only person to win the award for studying higher order plants.

Moderating a large community is a thankless job, which consists of many hours of spam removal and lots of verbal abuse from angry community members. Thanks to the +Science on G+​ mods for making this a great community!

+Science on G+ is a well-curated and high quality community which is populated by science posts. Since we take the time to curate each and every post, look at content, check stories and references and ask for references and links for every story, it is verifiable science. The posts in the community are a repertoire of knowledge which is reaching encyclopedic proportions which links across many topics and includes scientific journals, organizations, writers, scientists and people who just love the journey of discovery which is science.

Our strength has been our mods network, and I send this out as a hat-tip to them and the stellar work they put in to bring you the best science content which you can trust. You will not find memes in this community, nor will you find jokes. But you will find science which is amazing and fascinating.

Do share this post widely if you like science. I urge you to support us.

One of my undergraduate students will be presenting this research at the Midwestern Psychological Association. Feel free to comment below if you have questions.

Heart Rate Variability Predicts Attentional Control
The current research will be presented at the Midwestern Psychological Association in April. See text below for a summary or click on picture to view full poster.

Summary of Research
The current study examined: (a) how auditory and visual distractors would affect performance on a visual selective attention task, and (b) if variability in resting heart rate could predict attentional control (i.e., more variability in heart rate = better selective attention).

Using two different flanker tasks, participants had to focus on animals inside of a box and quickly press "1" if they saw a bird and "3" if they saw a dog. Participants were also instructed to ignore the pictures of animals outside the box (visual distractor condition) or ignore the animal sounds (auditory distracter condition).

Sometimes the distracting pictures and sounds provided the same information as inside the box (e.g.,  bird inside the box and bird outside of box) and other times the distracting stimuli were incompatible (e.g., a bird was presented inside the box but a dog was presented outside of the box). Participants who are better at selectively attending to the animals inside of the box should be less distracted by the incompatible distractors (see Figures in poster for examples of trials).

We also manipulated cognitive load. On low load conditions, there was only one animal in the box. On high load conditions, there were six animals in the box. Thus, the high load condition should take longer to process and consume more attentional resources.

Heart rate was assessed in a five minute baseline before the experiment proper. Heart Rate Variability (variability in beat to beat intervals) was collected and computed using +MindWare Technologies LTD software and hardware.

Auditory and visual distractors were equally distracting, and incompatible distractors only slowed down responses in the high load condition (when there were more stimuli to process). Furthermore, participants with more variability in their heart rate were less influenced by the incompatible distractors (i.e,. they had better attentional control).

The current research is consistent with the neurovisceral integration model, which posits that the areas of the brain responsible for top down attentional control and emotion regulation (e.g., prefrontal cortex) are also indirectly connected to the heart via the vagus nerve (e.g., prefrontal inhibition on subcortical areas adds short term variability in heart rate). 

Future research will determine if HRV can predict attentional control in toddlers and young children.

We'll be discussing foraging theory, cooperative breeding, autonomous cars, and collective decision-making processes in ants and honeybees. Should be fun! Hope you can join us!

Dr. Theodore (Ted) P. Pavlic, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at +Arizona State University. +Ted Pavlic received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2010 from The Ohio State University where he learned to combine behavioral ecology and control theory to build algorithms that allow automation to make flexible decisions that are rational with respect to the current environment. Inspiration came from optimal foraging theory and cooperative breeding, and target applications ranged from military to the sustainable built environment. From 2010 to 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in Computer Science and Engineering studying cyber-physical systems of the future composed of fully autonomous and human driven cars operating in parallel in the cities of the near future. Since 2012, he has worked as a research scientist at Arizona State University in the social-insect laboratory of Stephen Pratt studying the collective decision-making processes of ants and honeybees. Not only have these studies inspired novel stochastic programming techniques for swarm robotics, but these animal models are also providing insights into the information structures that emerged at the origins of life. In August of 2015, he will join the engineering faculty of Arizona State University where he will use a variety of theoretical, computational, and empirical methods to study decision-making and organization across a wide range of artificial and natural systems. Potential graduate students interested in trans-disciplinary explorations of decision making are welcome to contact him to discuss opportunities.

+Google+ - Please Fix the Ghost Communities
Do you find it odd that the largest community on G+ has 5.8 MILLION followers and the owner and mod are not even on Google+? Now it makes sense why the fb community and some of the other monster communities are filled with porn and spam - no one can remove posts or ban spammers!

Dear +Google+, Please fix the porn problem. I can't even check my G+ stream without one of these sex event posts showing up (see left pic)!  Many of the large communities are getting bombarded with these posts. The problem is that anyone can spam up to five communities at the same time (see right pic), and these events automatically appear in everyone's stream. Given that some of these monster communities have over a million followers, with many kids in these communities, this gives spammers a very diverse and large audience. Please give moderators more control by either: (a) making it impossible for non-mods to post community events or (b) hiding community events from the public until they are approved by a moderator. Thanks in advance.

Cool finding. Anyone have 7-tesla magnets and a cryocooler that I can borrow? On a more serious note, it is interesting to think about potential applications. What would you do if you could use magnets to control heat and sound?

Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field. In the March 23 issue of the journal Nature Materials, they describe how a magnetic field roughly the size of a medical MRI reduced the amount of heat flowing through a semiconductor by 12 percent. The study is the first ever to prove that acoustic phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties.___Cool finding.

Auditory Dominance in Adults
The current research will be presented at the Midwestern Psychological Association in April. See text below for a short summary or click on picture to view full poster.

Summary of Research
Adults had to quickly determine if two sounds, two pictures, or two A-V pairings were exactly the same or different.

Presenting the pictures and sounds together slowed down visual discrimination times but had no effect on auditory discrimination times (see Figure 2). 

In Experiment 2 we extended the finding to linguistic stimuli (i.e., spoken words also slowed down visual processing). See Figure 3. We also instructed adults in Study 2 to ignore the sounds/words and only respond to the visual information. Even though attention was directed to visual information, sounds and words both slowed down responding to visual information.

Even though attention was directed to visual information, sounds and words both slowed down responding to visual information. 

While the adult literature consistently points to visual dominance, the current study provides novel support showing that sounds and words can also attenuate visual processing.

Hotels or Airbnb?
For the last 2 weeks I have been trying to book a hotel room in downtown Chicago for the Fourth of July weekend. Many of the hotels near the downtown area do not have rooms available or they run $400-800 a night. My friends referred me to +Airbnb​, and I am currently looking into a loft right off of Michigan Ave for $250! It really seems like a nice (and interesting) way to travel, and it is a lot cheaper. 

I have provided a link below that will give you $25 off your first trip! Disclaimer: Using the link below to create an account will also give me $25 credit if you use the service for travel and $75 if you host.

I am new to +Airbnb​ and would like to hear from you. Have you used this service to find a room or house? Have you used this service to host and share your house with others? What are your thoughts?

Ames Illusion
An Ames room is a distorted room that is used to create an optical illusion. Likely influenced by the writings of Hermann Helmholtz, it was invented by American ophthalmologist Adelbert Ames, Jr. in 1934, and constructed in the following year. An Ames room is viewed with one eye through a pinhole such as to avoid any clues from stereopsis, and it is constructed so that from the front it appears to be an ordinary cubic-shaped room, with a back wall and two side walls parallel to each other and perpendicular to the horizontally level floor and ceiling. However, this is a trick of perspective and the true shape of the room is trapezoidal: the walls are slanted and the ceiling and floor are at an incline, and the right corner is much closer to the front-positioned observer than the left corner (or vice versa).

Heart Rate Variability and AV Processing in Infants
We recently presented these preliminary data at the International Conference on Infant Studies. Summary is below or you can click on poster and scroll with mouse wheel to enlarge.

Summary
*Infants were presented with alternating old and new sounds (E1) or old and new AV pairings (E2), and we recorded infants' heart rates.

*Heart rate slowed down more for novel sounds and novel images, suggesting that heart rate can be used to measure AV discrimination in young infants.

*Infants with more variable heart beats (i.e., increased variability in beat to beat intervals) at the beginning of the study were more likely to detect changes in auditory and visual information.

*Current research is examining if heart rate variability can be used to predict selective and divided attention abilities in... more »

Did you hear the joke about the physics, biology, and psychology professors who had a few whiskies and thought they could play music? :-) Vocals and guitars were recorded with a Yeti Pro as a single track and recorded and exported using Audacity. For some reason there are several artifacts that occurred during encoding/exporting but I am too lazy to edit them out.

Feedback is always appreciated. Keep in mind that we're just playing around and are not practicing musicians. This is the second time that we played together and only practiced for a few minutes before covering Johnny Cash's cover of the Nine Inch Nail's song, Hurt.

My last adventure to Soldier Field was to see the Dead play on 7/9/95, their very last show. Twenty years later the remaining members are reuniting to play a three day show (7/3 - 7/5) to celebrate their 50th anniversary. I try to see at least one show a year and this is it! Anyone else heading to Soldier Field for the shows?
