  1. What is Implicit Bias?Jules Holroyd, Robin Scaife & Tom Stafford - 2017 - Philosophy Compass 12 (10):e12437.
    Research programs in empirical psychology over the past few decades have led scholars to posit implicit biases. This is due to the development of innovative behavioural measures that have revealed aspects of our cognitions which may not be identified on self-report measures requiring individuals to reflect on and report their attitudes and beliefs. But what does it mean to characterise such biases as implicit? Can we satisfactorily articulate the grounds for identifying them as bias? And crucially, what sorts of cognitions (...)

    Testing Sleep Consolidation in Skill Learning: A Field Study Using an Online Game.Tom Stafford & Erwin Haasnoot - 2017 - Topics in Cognitive Science 9 (2):485-496.
    Using an observational sample of players of a simple online game, we are able to trace the development of skill in that game. Information on playing time, and player location, allows us to estimate time of day during which practice took place. We compare those whose breaks in practice probably contained a night's sleep and those whose breaks in practice probably did not contain a night's sleep. Our analysis confirms experimental evidence showing a benefit of spacing for skill learning, but (...)

    Piéron's Law Holds During Stroop Conflict: Insights Into the Architecture of Decision Making.Tom Stafford, Leanne Ingram & Kevin N. Gurney - 2011 - Cognitive Science 35 (8):1553-1566.
    Piéron's Law describes the relationship between stimulus intensity and reaction time. Previously (Stafford & Gurney, 2004), we have shown that Piéron's Law is a necessary consequence of rise-to-threshold decision making and thus will arise from optimal simple decision-making algorithms (e.g., Bogacz, Brown, Moehlis, Holmes, & Cohen, 2006). Here, we manipulate the color saturation of a Stroop stimulus. Our results show that Piéron's Law holds for color intensity and color-naming reaction time, extending the domain of this law, in line with our (...)

    Evidence for the Rationalisation Phenomenon is Exaggerated.Tom Stafford - 2020 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 43.
    The evidence for rationalisation, which motivates the target article, is exaggerated. Experimental evidence shows that rationalisation effects are small rather than gross and, I argue, largely silent on the pervasiveness and persistence of the phenomenon. At least some examples taken to show rationalisation also have an interpretation compatible with deliberate, knowing reason-responsiveness on the part of participants.

    “Against Method” and “Anything Goes”? A Critical Discussion Based on the “Strange Ideas From Paul Feyerabend on Whether Epistemological Anarchy Can Benefit is Research.Horst Treiblmaier, Andrew Burton-Jones, Shirley Gregor, Rudy Hirschheim, Michael Myers & Tom Stafford - unknown
    In this panel six IS researchers from varying backgrounds will discuss whether epistemological anarchy, as proposed by the controversial philosopher Paul Feyerabend, has the potential to foster research progress and can help to create new insights in the IS field. Feyerabend is well known for his notion that "anything goes" in terms of methodology, and many scholars are concerned that this seemingly anarchistic sentiment can undermine efforts to systematically build and structure an epistemological and methodological foundation for an academic discipline.
