I go to America! AMERICA!!!

I'm just leaving to Cogsci2007 to present the results from Jarba's thesis. Very quick trip but I hope to meet my friends Abhijit, Eric Nichols, and Mr Lara-Dammer soon. I wonder what they'll think about what our small group here is doing. Hopefully, some of their own solutions ideas will make it into our projects. Here's the abstract:

We present a new hypothesis concerning cognitive reflection and the relationship between System 1 and System 2, corresponding roughly to intuition and reason. This hypothesis postulates a tighter integration between systems than is implied by the common framework of separate modules. If systems are tightly coupled, as we propose here, an explanation of cognitive reflection may rest in the premature convergence of an ‘entropy’, or ‘temperature’, parameter.
