    Alastair D Smith
    School of Psychology, University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, United Kingdom
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 36:605-18. 2010
    ..However, when this was combined with a more salient perceptual landmark, an allocentric cuing effect was observed. These data suggest that the encoding of this type of statistical contingency depends on the combination of spatial cues...

    Alastair D Smith
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, 12a Priory Road, Bristol BS8 1TN, UK
    Perception 38:694-701. 2009
    ..Our findings indicate that spatial deficits associated with WS also affect large-scale spatial processing and suggest that hemizygous deletion of LIMK1 is not sufficient to account for any of the spatial deficits associated with WS...

    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, 12 a Priory Road, Bristol BS8 1TU, UK

    Matthew G Buckley
    School of Psychology, University of Nottingham, UK
    Brain Cogn 83:132-41. 2013

    Alastair D Smith
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, UK
    Perception 34:1221-9. 2005

    Alastair D Smith
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, UK
    Dev Sci 9:465-72. 2006
    ..These findings suggest that while the facilitation of face recognition by gaze direction is robust across encoding and recognition stages, the efficiency of the process is affected by the stage at which gaze is modulated...
