  • The UOS_Secure wireless service is going...

    Over the next few weeks, the UOS_Secure wireless network will no longer be available on campus. Any existing users of UOS_Secure should move over to the new eduroam wireless service before 21 March 2016.

    Why use eduroam?

    IT Services have replaced over 600 wireless access points and introduced more than 50 new wireless hotspots on campus to provide a better wireless experience using eduroam. The service now provides:

    • Increased speed and reliability
    • Faster connectivity to University resources
    • Greater capacity for more users
    • Quick login without the need to sign in each time you connect
    • Access to the Internet at thousands of participating institutions in the UK and worldwide

    How do I connect to eduroam?

    To connect to eduroam you will need to configure your device using the configuration tool available at:

    I use a university managed laptop, what will I need to do to connect to eduroam?

    If you are using a university managed laptop you will not need to do anything, all devices will be automatically updated to connect to eduroam before 21 March 2016. You may be prompted to enter your university credentials the first time the service is accessed on your device. When entering your username ensure it is entered in the following format:

    If you are using your own device you can connect to eduroam by following the instructions available here.

    Can I connect to The Cloud instead?

    The Cloud wireless network is for members of the public and visitors to the university. Some University resources will not be available through The Cloud so staff and students should always use the eduroam network on campus.

    What will happen if I do not switch to eduroam before 21 March 2016?

    If you have not switched to the eduroam service by 21 March 2016 your device will no longer be connected to the wireless network and you will need to connect to eduroam in order to access the wireless service on campus. You will also notice that the UOS_Secure network will no longer appear in the wireless network list on your device.

    Where can I find out more?

  • Research Seminar: The Brain Mechanisms of Semantic Retrieval

    25 October 2016

    There are a number of controversies about semantic memory and the brain: the first is where knowledge is stored, and the second is how knowledge is accessed. Research has shown there are several interacting brain networks implicated in the dynamic use of knowledge, which allow us to 

    1. store and retrieve dominant information (such as “salt” goes with pepper), 
    2. use information in a context-specific way (such as “salt” spreading on an icy path) and 
    3. respond to demanding tasks (such as matching “salt” with “dove” when asked to sort items according to their colour). 

    I will present neuropsychological, TMS and behavioural evidence to answer the critical controversies: where knowledge is stored, and how it is accessed.
