The CIMeC Colloquia Series is an annual set of invited talks given by leading researchers in the mind/brain sciences, both from Italy and abroad, aimed principally at our PhD Students. Given the multi-disciplinary backgrounds of the CIMeC students and researchers, the Colloquia are aimed at a general scientific level rather than at a more specialized audience.


NOVEMBER 7, 2019 4:00 p.m. - Palazzo Fedrigotti, I floor, Conference Room, Corso Bettini 31, Rovereto.

SPEAKER: Marco Perugini - Professor of Department of Psychology, University of Milano-Bicocca

TITLE:  The signal and the noise: Implications of the replicability crisis on research practices 

ABSTRACT: The recent replicability crisis in Psychology has attracted much attention and it is starting to have an impact on current research practices. In this talk, after an overview, I will present some concrete suggestions on what should be done based on the lessons learned from the replicability debate. The emphasis will be on methodological issues and research practices increasing the likelihood of designing informative experiments and drawing correct inferences from data, helping therefore researchers to separate the signal from the noise.

Host: Vittorio Iacovella
