Ruihan attended the Experimental Psychology Society (EPS) meeting on 14th-15th April 2021. She gave a talk entitled ‘Does prompted instruction in an anticipatory looking paradigm trigger compensation?’. The conference was hosted by the Experimental Psychology Society. We found our prompted anticipatory looking task can reliably trigger belief-based action prediction and assess mentalizing in adults. Most importantly, we provided evidence that the prompted anticipatory looking task was not susceptible to compensation, it seems like that this task is a more pure measure for mentalizing, which have the potential to refine our understanding of mentalizing per se. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn from and exchange ideas with peers and experts.
