  • Fais gaffe: not everything the announcer says is true of the research. He was enthusiastic, though.

    Shoutout to Lupyan & Swingley in the NYT Magazine. Nota bene: our study was about finding something in a complex scene in front of you (like a supermarket aisle), not about remembering where you put your keys.
