Eamon Fulcher born November 1957 is a cognitive-behavioural psychologist at the University of the West of England.[1] He obtained his PhD in the field of neural networks at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London, under the supervision of Igor Aleksander. He was a research assistant to Alan Baddeley at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit at Cambridge. He has also worked at the Goldsmiths College University of London, the University of Worcester, the University of Gloucestershire, the University of Murcia in Spain. As well as a psychology tutor and a researcher, he is also a writer, a programmer, a web designer, and statistical and research methods consultant.

Research Edit

His research has focussed on evaluative conditioning (aka evaluative learning), with an emphasis on its application to anxiety disorders and its relationship with attentional bias. He has also conducted research on pre-environmental behaviour associated with climate change and research on public attitudes to road safety.[2]

LabWriteUp Edit

He designed and programmed LabWriteUp,[3] a computer application designed to help students write research reports for coursework.

Marker's Black Box Edit

He also designed and programmed Marker's Black Box,[4] a standalone marking application that runs from a PC with Windows XP and Windows Vista. It can be used to mark and grade student coursework or exam paper that has been submitted as a hard copy (hand written or word processed) or in electronic form (e.g., online submission of a word processed document). The output of Marker's Black Box is a word processed marker's feedback sheet that contains the written comments and assessment of the marker. It also contains the college, faculty, course, and assignment details and an additional option is to include the marks awarded for each criterion.
