Outstanding Poster Award Presentation

Dr. Richard LaBrie of Harvard Medical School's Psychiatry Department presented this year's Outstanding Poster Award to the University of Sydney's Alex Blaszczynski and Sally Monaghan for their study entitled Pop-up Messages on Electronic Gaming Machines: Effect on Gambling-Related Thoughts and Behavior. Blaszczynski is a professor of Clinical Psychology and Monaghan is a DCP/Ph.D. student at the University of Sydney's School of Psychology. Their study found that pop-up messages on electronic gaming machines have more impact on thoughts and behaviors during play than more static messages that occurred after the session had ended.

This year 27 groups submitted posters with empirical research, 17 of which were from countries outside the United States.
