Project Summary

Skilled readers can recognise words and read aloud fluently and effortlessly: how do they do this? This project will build a detailed description of the mental processes used in skilled reading, and will verify this description by writing it in the form of a computer program that recognises words and reads aloud in the way that people do.

Primary FoR 0201 ASTRONOMICAL AND SPACE SCIENCES

Administering Organisation Macquarie University

Project Summary

We used to think that when stars expand during their old age, they would destroy all their close-by planets. Today we know that if a star swallows a Jupiter-like planet it can suffer indigestion. We will study how star-planet interactions takes place, determine their impact on the lives of stars and glimpse at the future of our own solar system.

Primary FoR 2005 LITERARY STUDIES

Administering Organisation Macquarie University

Project Summary

This project examines, through multidisciplinary tools drawn from cognitive science, how we are able to understand texts written over 1000 years ago, through the cognitive structures and cultural factors that shape meaning. Using cognitive approaches to literature, this study demonstrates the complex interplay of mind, culture, and literary texts.

Total $500,000.00

Primary FoR 0406 PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY AND ENVIRONMENTAL GEOSCIENCE

Administering Organisation Macquarie University

Project Summary

A crucial test of the models used to project future climate is how well they reproduce past climates. The project will reconstruct Australian regional climates, from vegetation, fire and runoff records, and use these for climate-model evaluation - helping to provide a more solid basis for management of Australian resources in the future.

Administering Organisation Macquarie University

Project Summary

As solar-like stars expand to become red giants, their planetary systems gradual get destroyed, and the planet helps the stars to throw off their outer layers. This project will develop economic precise spectrographs to detect planets around giant stars and establish how this interaction occurs.

This project aims to come up with strategies for improving superannuation advice for the elderly - including retirees, and also those on the cusp of retirement, who often have little or no scope for working harder or longer to restore their finances. It applies recent developments in financial economics to improve the quality of financial planning advice.

This research examines capacities for moral judgment in people with schizophrenia, some of whom act on their delusional beliefs and commit crimes. Findings will, in turn, inform legal and philosophical consideration of the moral accountability of mentally ill defendants, and advance theoretical knowledge of healthy moral decision making.

Why do so many Australian political leaders increasingly profess religious belief, while the public becomes more secular? What does this mean for our politics? Religion and Political Thought (RAPT's) interdisciplinary, rigorous analysis contributes both to a large international project (Asia, Europe and North America), and to developing an Australian tradition of political theory.
