In turn, self-alienation and a lack of personal relationships can cause one to approve of military action as a solution to international conflicts, according to Olga Gulevich, Associate Professor of the HSE School of Psychology, and Andrey Nevruyev, postgraduate student of the same department.

New article "Ensemble summary statistics as a basis for rapid visual categorization" by Igor Utochkin

New theoretical paper by Igor Utochkin on ensembles is now published in Journal of Vision.
