While researching gestural theories of language origins, I fell hard for Gordon W. Hewes (right)—a four-field anthropologist with an encyclopedic, visual sensibility. He was interdisciplinary before it was cool.

Nice way to start the weekend: just found out that we'll be presenting new work at Psychonomics in Nov.
@lajake209's talk will cover data on people's preferences for descriptions of durations. For a preview, check out her #cogsci2020 paper:
.@lajake209 recently discovered a cool bias. When people read this:
Event A went from 1 - 10pm.
Event B went from 4 - 5pm.
they prefer descs such as "A started before B started" over "A ended after B ended". Hear about these biases at our #cogsci2020 poster today @ 11am P-3-538 2
I can’t stress this enough. If you receive your ballot by mail,
1) SIGN IT. Most rejected ballots are because of lack of signature.
2) DROP IT OFF in an approved Dropbox site wherever possible instead of mailing it.
NYT turned our recent paper led by @WynesSeth into a mini quiz on climate choices, try it out! @simondonner @nytimes @Climate_Psych @ClimateReality
Psyched that our lab's latest paper (led by @lajake209) is now out in JoCN! It's about how people make systematic mistakes when they reason about durations, as in the sentence: A happened _during_ B.
