Effects of valent image-based secondary tasks on verbal working memory (2018)
Journal Article
Hughes, N. C., Ings, F. M., Morgan, P. L., Morgan, P., Williams, C., Ings, F., & Hughes, N. (2018). Effects of valent image-based secondary tasks on verbal working memory. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 71(6), 1440-1456. https://doi.org/10.1080/17470218.2017.1329324

Two experiments examined if exposure to emotionally valent image-based secondary tasks introduced at different points of a free recall working memory (WM) task impair memory performance. Images from the International Affective Picture System (IAPS) v... Read More about Effects of valent image-based secondary tasks on verbal working memory.

Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings (2017)
Book Chapter
Morgan, P., Alford, C., Williams, C., Parkhurst, G., & Pipe, A. G. (2017). Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings. In N. A. Stanton (Ed.), Advances in Human Aspects of Transportation: Proceedings of the AHFE 2017 International Conference on Human Factors in Transportation, 760-771. Springer

Relatively little is known about human behavior and performance when retaking control of highly autonomous vehicles (AVs) at different speeds and under varied driving conditions. Past research has tended to focus on long periods of high-speed extra-u... Read More about Manual takeover and handover of a simulated fully autonomous vehicle within urban and extra urban settings.

Affective appraisals of urban walking: The role of heritage environments (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Bornioli, A., Parkhurst, G., Morgan, P., & Short, M. (2016, January). Affective appraisals of urban walking: The role of heritage environments. Paper presented at Universities Transport Study Group Annual Conference

A recent “affective turn” in the social sciences has given new emphasis to the role of affect and emotions in influencing human behaviours (Damasio 2006). Affective experiences can also have major implications on travel behaviours with; investigation... Read More about Affective appraisals of urban walking: The role of heritage environments.

Handover issues in autonomous driving: A literature review (2016)
Report
Morgan, P., Alford, C., & Parkhurst, G. (2016). Handover issues in autonomous driving: A literature review

The present review was undertaken to inform a workpackage of the Venturer Project undertaking studies into the handover of control between a human driver and an autonomous road vehicle. The ‘handover problem’ arises as a feature of the development of... Read More about Handover issues in autonomous driving: A literature review.

The effects of emotive interruptions and distractions on memory recall (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Morgan, P., Hughes, N., Williams, C., Ings, F. M., & Alford, C. (2015, August). The effects of emotive interruptions and distractions on memory recall. Poster presented at 2015 Electrical Geodesics Summer School

Interruptions divert attention from a task, whereas distractions occur in the background or alongside a task and can be ignored. Both can disrupt working memory (WM). However, little is known about the effects of emotive interruptions and distraction... Read More about The effects of emotive interruptions and distractions on memory recall.

The influence of training and experience on memory strategy (2015)
Journal Article
Morgan, P. L., Patrick, J., Morgan, P., Smy, V., Tiley, L., Seeby, H., …Evans, J. (2015). The influence of training and experience on memory strategy. Memory and Cognition, 43(5), 775-787. https://doi.org/10.3758/s13421-014-0501-3

© 2015, Psychonomic Society, Inc. This paper investigates whether, and if so how much, prior training and experience overwrite the influence of the constraints of the task environment on strategy deployment. This evidence is relevant to the theory of... Read More about The influence of training and experience on memory strategy.

The emotional side of task interruption: Effects on memory recall (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Morgan, P., Hughes, N., Ings, F. M., & Williams, C. (2015, July). The emotional side of task interruption: Effects on memory recall. Paper presented at Experimental Psychology Society Summer 2015 Meeting

Being interrupted whilst performing a task tends to impair subsequent performance on measures such as memory recall. However, little is known about the effects of interruptions with an emotive content which is surprising given how often they occur....
