Thinking outside of the box II: disrupting the cognitive map (2018)
Journal Article
Buckley, M. G., Smith, A. D., & Haselgrove, M. (2019). Thinking outside of the box II: disrupting the cognitive map. Cognitive Psychology, 108, 22-41. doi:10.1016/j.cogpsych.2018.11.001

A number of influential spatial learning theories posit that organisms encode a viewpoint independent (i.e. allocentric) representation of the global boundary shape of their environment in order to support spatial reorientation and place learning. In... Read More

Learned changes in outcome associability (2017)
Journal Article
Quigley, M. C., Eatherington, C. J., & Haselgrove, M. (2018). Learned changes in outcome associability. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, doi:10.1080/17470218.2017.1344258. ISSN 1747-0218

When a cue reliably predicts an outcome, the associability of that cue will change. Associative theories of learning propose this change will persist even when the same cue is paired with a different outcome. These theories, however, do not extend th... Read More

Thinking outside of the box: transfer of shape-based reorientation across the boundary of an arena (2016)
Journal Article
Buckley, M. G., Smith, A. D., & Haselgrove, M. (2016). Thinking outside of the box: transfer of shape-based reorientation across the boundary of an arena. Cognitive Psychology, 87, (53-87). doi:10.1016/j.cogpsych.2016.04.001. ISSN 0010-0285

The way in which human and non-human animals represent the shape of their environments remains a contentious issue. According to local theories of shape learning, organisms encode the local geometric features of the environment that signal a goal loc... Read More

Enhanced latent inhibition in high schizotypy individuals (2015)
Journal Article
Granger, K. T., Moran, P. M., Buckley, M. G., & Haselgrove, M. (2016). Enhanced latent inhibition in high schizotypy individuals. Personality and Individual Differences, 91, doi:10.1016/j.paid.2015.11.040. ISSN 0191-8869

Latent inhibition refers to a retardation in learning about a stimulus that has been rendered familiar by non-reinforced preexposure, relative to a non-preexposed stimulus. Latent inhibition has been shown to be inversely correlated with schizotypy,... Read More
