1Cognitive processes underlying language productionDr. Andus WongDr. Andus Wong
andus.wong@cityu.edu.hk
This study focuses on the cognitive processes underlying spoken language production. A series of computer-based behavioral experiments will be conducted to investigate how phonological information is retrieved in object naming. Findings will have implications for the theories of language production. Practically, the resutls may provide valuable insights for our understanding of invididuals with speech impairment.Students are expected to be available to volunteer for 2-6 hours a week, for a minimum of one semester. Responsibilities may include: literature search, material preparation, participant recruitment, data collection (i.e., running the experiment in lab), data analysis and other supporting activities. Contact the PI at andus.wong@cityu.edu.hk. Please also attach a brief CV (including your GPAs or other relevant academic record) and a brief account of your relevant experiences (if any) and interests in the topic.Nam Shan Psychology lab212018 Dec

3Conflict management in the workplaceDr. Dannii YeungDr. Dannii Yeungdannii.yeung@cityu.edu.hkThis study examines age differences in conflict management between younger and older workers. It makes use of the eye tracking method to objectively assess the natural looking patterns of younger and older workers when they are viewing hypothetical conflict scenarios. Findings of this study will contribute to the design of training and development programmes. The student helper is expected to volunteer 4-8 hours per week, for a minimum of one semester. He/She will provide assistance in various research tasks, such as validation of the experimental stimuli, recruitment of participants, data collection, or data entry.  Training on operating the eye tracking device will be provided to the student helper.

4Group Storytelling Intervention Based on Social Information Processing (SIP) Model to Reduce Reactive and Proactive Aggression in Young SchoolchildrenDr, Annis Lai Chu FUNGDr. Annis Lai Chu FUNGannis.fung@cityu.edu.hkUsing Storytelling to engage 6 to 10 years old young children. It helps children to expand their vocabulary for and understanding of their own and others’ feelings and thoughts. Children are encouraged to identify with and imitate the prosocial behaviour displayed by the main characters in stories. The specific aims are as follows:
1. To access the proposed programme’s effectiveness in reducing reactive and proactive aggression.
2. To access the proposed programme’s effectiveness in enhancing empathy and social competence and reducing impulsivity.
Students would be trained to conduct both quantitative and qualitative approach in data collection at 7 primary schools. They could have a chance to contact the real subjects and apply their interviewing skills in focused groups and individual interviews. Also, they could learn the stepwise of conducting quantitative data collection among young children. They could be a helper in facilitating the storytelling intervention process with the well-trained professionals among high-risk aggressive children in therapeutic groups.Please send emails to Dr. Annis Fung at annis.fung@cityu.edu.hk7 Primary schools in different areas 83 2019 Dec

9Second language perception and productionDr. Vivien ChanDr. Vivien Chanvivien.chanky@cityu.edu.hkWithout sensitivity to subtle sound differences, second language (L2) learners will fail to establish an accurate representation of L2 sounds and will be unable to attune L2 categories with continued L2 exposure. This study examines how sensitivity to subtle L2 sound variation is related to acquisition of L2 sound categories in L2 learners. It also examine production accuracy and varaibility in L2 learners. Do L2 learners tend to mispronounce the target word in a consistent way, or are they distributed in a more random fashion? Students are expected to be available to volunteer for 2-6 hours a week, for a minimum of one semester. Responsibilities may include: material preparation, select stimulus for experiment, participant recruitment, editing stimulus sound files, data collection (i.e., running the experiment in lab), data analysis and other supporting activities. Contact the PI at vivien.chanky@cityu.edu.hk. Please also attach a brief CV (including your GPAs or other relevant academic record) and a brief account of your relevant experiences (if any) and interests in the topic.Nam Shan Psychology lab or computer labs on campus212018 Dec

10Phonological Network of Second language learnersDr. Vivien ChanDr. Vivien Chanvivien.chanky@cityu.edu.hkThe purpose of this study is to collect data to construct a phonological network for second language (L2) learners using network science analysis. Network science is a method to examine complex systems by representing the system as a network that is comprised from nodes and links. A example of network science is to analyze a social network. People who know each other can be connected to form a social network. Even there are many people, any two people are linked through as few as six friends. By analyzing the phonological network of L2 learners with different levels of English proficiency and contrast it with native speakers’, we can gain a better understanding on why L2 learners cannot attain native level of language proficiency. Is the problem due to smaller lexicon? Less efficient word searching? Problem in representing the relationship among the similar sounding words they know?
Students are expected to be available to volunteer for 2-6 hours a week, for a minimum of one semester. Responsibilities may include: material preparation, select stimulus for experiment, participant recruitment, editing stimulus sound files, data collection (i.e., running the experiment in lab), data analysis and other supporting activities.

11Developmental trajectories of Anxiety and Depression among
Adolescents in Hong Kong
Prof. Samuel HoProf. Samuel Homunyinho@cityu.edu.hkThe proposed study aims to examine the distribution of four hypothesized developmental trajectories of depression and anxiety among secondary school students in Hong Kong. The four hypothesized developmental trajectories are persistently high (chronic), persistently low (resilient), low increasing (deteriorating), and high decreasing (recovery). This project will examine the effect of anxiety sensitivity (AS) and attentional bias in predicting developmental trajectories.Students are expected to prepare the assessment package, liaise with the school teachers to deliver and collect the assesment package, to do data input. Students might have opportunities to work with a clinical psychologist to prepare intervention protocol if they are interested.Contact the PI at munyinho@cityu.edu.hk. Please also attach a brief CV (including your GPAs or other relevant academic record) and a brief account of your relevant experiences (if any) and interests in the topic.The research site is a school in Tin Shui Wai.
