Inspire.Psych 2016

Hi everyone!

We’re happy to announce the launch of a new initiative, called Inspire.Psych. This will be a series of talks similar to Ted Talks, but about Psychology topics that are not offered as part of the NUS curriculum!

This sem, we are offering two talks: How to Attract the Love of your Life by Kelvin Teng, and The Right of Language by Dr. Travellia. Do refer to their respective posters for the timings and locations of each talk. For those interested, please sign up at http://tinyurl.com/Inspire-Psyche as there are limited slots. We will send you a confirmation email as well. More details about the talks are below.

How to Attract the Love of your Life:
You have studied, or are going to study, social psychology. Why do we like some people and not others? What is love and what makes people fall in love with each other? Those are a few questions you will probably explore in the course. In this talk, learn how to link lectures with life and answer this particular question “How do I attract the love of my life?”

The Right of Language:
We have known for a long time that the left hemisphere of the brain is involved in various language functions (most notably, in speech as well as comprehension). In this talk, I will go over some research findings that showed the right hemisphere’s roles in language. I would like to highlight the importance of having a balanced look at both of the hemispheres to better understand the relationship between language functionalities and the brain.

If you want to take part in a sports competition and make more friends in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at the same time, Arts Open 2016 may just be the event for you!

Arts Open is an inter-major sports events open only to the students and staff of FASS. It is an event that was revitalized in 2015 by the Sports Committee in FASS Club to foster stronger bonds between students of FASS. Last year, 12 teams each representing different majors in FASS took part in four different sports: street soccer, basketball, captain’s ball and dodgeball. Anyone with an inclination towards or a passion in sports is encouraged to sign up!

Attractive prizes, a chance to bring honour to your major and boasting rights are also all part of the appeal of the Arts Open!

For those who are unable to participate as a sporting representative, support your major by coming down to encourage and cheer on our friends!

Anyone from FASS who is interested can visit the individual websites for the respective majors, or sign up at:

[Sponsored Post] Silkpro VITAIR Shampoo Series!

[Sponsored Post]

alternate-your-shampoo

This Thursday, drop by our benches to collect your welfare pack. For Psychology Appreciation Week 2015, Silkpro has kindly sponsored vouchers to their online store at www.tohtonku.com.sg/shop specially for our members!

Have you heard of Silkpro’s new VITAIR shampoo series? Well, listen up, because you should hear about it! VITAIR shampoos are rich in essential vitamins, with a breakthrough sulphate-free and silicone-free formula.

What does sulphate-free and silicone-free mean for your hair? Well, ordinary shampoos contain sulphate because of the lathering effect it gives. But, sulphate actually strips moisture and colour off the hair and scalp, resulting in irritation and dryness or fizziness of hair. Silicone is responsible for seemingly shiny and smooth hair, but prolonged exposure leads to a build-up of a synthetic coating that weighs down hair. So VITAIR is putting an end to this, through it’s sulphate and silicone-free formula, promising to deep cleanse hair and scalp to ensure that tresses stay smoother, lighter, and more manageable after every wash.

The series comes in four different types, each addressing different hair and scalp conditions.

Daily Balance is the series’ base shampoo that is suitable for all scalp and hair types. It is designed to be used alternately with these specialised VITAIR shampoos:

Dandruff Control provides cooling relief from itchiness on dandruff-prone scalps. It helps eliminate the apperance of unsightly white flakes.

Frizz Control delivers intensive moisturisation and colour protection for dry and colour- treated hair.

Oil Control is designed for deep cleansing and to give relief from itchiness on oil-clogged scalps. It reduces the risk of developing limp hair.

The VITAIR series is avaliable in the forms of a shampoo, a daily treatment masque, and a hair tonic concentrate. Find out more at http://www.silkpro.com.sg/vitair-advantage.html

Psychology Appreciation Week! (PAW) AY2015/16 Semester 1

PAW POSTER

Hi dear Psychology Society members,

How has the start of the week been for you? Here’s a reminder that welfare pack giveaways for PAW starts on this coming Thursday, 22nd October, till Friday, 23rd October! We’ll be at the AS6 walkway benches 17-19. Do remember to bring your membership card along in order to receive the welfare packs! For nonmembers, you can sign up on the spot as well, and receive the packs!

Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect:

Wear Your Psychology Shirt!
For the entire week, wear your Psychology shirt on any day (or days) to show your appreciation and support for Psychology! We recommend you to wear it on Thursday. Let’s all fill FASS with our amazing shirts!

Dedications!
Stop by our benches to write your dedications to our amazing Psychology lecturers! We’ll provide the paper, and deliver it to them, so all you need to do is to express your gratitude to them, and we’ll do the rest.

Welfare Pack Collection
Collect your welfare packs at AS6 walkway, benches 17-19! Welfare pack collection will only be held on Thursday and Friday. Membership cards must be presented, or sign-up on the spot to receive a pack.

Hunt for the Golden Paws
Want more goodies? Find the golden paws that we have hidden at various locations in FASS! Hold on to it, and present it to us when you collect your welfare pack (present your membership card too) in order to receive even more freebies! There are only a few paws hidden around school, so start the hunt NOW!😉

Invisible Rope Experiment
If you have some time to kill before your lecture/ tutorial, just grab a few of your friends and start holding the ‘rope’ randomly at AS6 walkway. Then get your friends to start stepping over the rope repeatedly. If it happens often enough we’ll just watch this amazing conformity experiment (hopefully) come to life! Our Exco members will always be at the booth in front of the Psych notice board along AS6 (where the T-junction outside CLB is) and we will be there to help if you need us! Let’s all join in to this, and show the entire school, how amazing Psychology is in predicting and explaining everyday behaviour!

That’s all for PAW! Looking forward to seeing you this Thursday.😀
