Dr. Michael Muthukrishna has recently published research on the dynamics of corruption, Corrupting Cooperation and How Anti-Corruption Strategies May Backfire Data. This research demonstrates that transparency only reduces corruption in certain circumstances: if economic opportunities exist or if the state has the strength and resources to punish law-breakers. If neither of these circumstances is present, transparency is ineffective—or can even make things worse.
In the first study of its kind, Brett Heasman (PBS PhD student) and Dr. Alex Gillespie used a two-way measure of perspective-taking to show that 'neurotypical' people struggle to imagine autistic perspectives, bringing attention to the many activities, such as job interviews, that rely on how autistic people are seen by others.
How do we judge others? Are people judged differently for the same things?
Congratulations to PBS research student Dr. Philippe Fauquet-Alekhine who has been honoured as ISBS Fellow and Life Member, the highest honour bestowed by the International Stress and Behavior Society (ISBS) for his work on the mental stress of teams operating complex systems such as nuclear reactors & aircrafts.
