Not everyone can find the funds or the time to attend Psychonomics, so this year we are offering the option of registering for Psychonomics Live!, part of our 2019 Annual Meeting to be held November 14-17 in Montréal, Québec, Canada. As a test this inaugural year, the keynote address and two of our symposia will be available to view via live streaming. To participate in Psychonomics Live!, connect via our online service. You will be able to take part in the discussions and ask questions of the speakers (which will be curated by the symposium organizer) from the comfort of your home or institution. All you need is a broadband connection. You can also watch the sessions later at a time convenient to you.
This live streaming is provided for free as part of our ongoing effort to increase access to the content of our meeting and to lower our overall carbon footprint.
During Symposium I and Symposium II, all Psychonomics Live! audience members will have the option to submit questions. A moderator will field questions at the end of each symposium as time allows. To submit a question, click on the talk bubble icon located in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. A pop-up box titled "Ask a Question" will appear. Type your question, including your name and email, then press the button marked "Ask Question."
If you’re attending the meeting in person, you will also have free access to Psychonomics Live!. You will be able to catch up on the symposia later if you need to participate in other sessions that are running concurrently. You will still need to register, though.

Judith F. Kroll, University of California, Irvine, USA
Session Hashtag: #psynom19key
The use of two or more languages is common in most places in the world. Yet, until recently, bilingualism was considered to be a complicating factor for language processing, cognition, and the brain. In the past 20 years, there has been an upsurge of research that examines the cognitive and neural bases of second language learning and bilingualism and the resulting consequences for cognition and for brain structure and function over the lifespan...

In this symposium, we consider some of the peculiar characteristics that challenge our understanding and force us to reconsider what we know about the nature of human memory. Just as perceptual illusions inform us further about perceptual processes, so too do such memory quirks push the existing boundaries and enrich our thinking about memory processes… (Full Description)

Session Hashtag: #psynom19sym2
Traditional models of memory describe semantic and episodic memory as independent entities within long-term memory, which has led to studying them as separate memory systems. Contemporary research has begun to document several scenarios in which semantic and episodic memory necessarily interact, ranging from learning new information, retrieving past memories and making effective decisions… (Full Description)
