on the psychological mechanisms of irrational beliefs (e.g., the paranormal, superstitions). She
has contributed to over 130 peer-reviewed research contributions.

Our linguistic, cultural, and perceptual environments are rich in colour associations and meanings. We feel blue, see red, turn green with envy. But the same colours can also signal different emotional messages to different people. Join us at the next Fluorescent Friday to learn from color psychology researchers about how colour-emotion associations can be detected in controlled laboratory settings.
