How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Working memory (WM) bootstrapping involves an initiation of the episodic buffer by linking visuospatial and verbal WM with long-term memory. Assessments of visuospatial bootstrapping for WM have assessed a typical keypad (TKP) stimulus presentation in comparison to single display conditions, novel keypad conditions, as well as a full numeric array...
Recent researchers have highlighted the need for research on deadly shootings and other forms of aggression in society. To provide a theoretical roadmap for future research in this area, we have brought together social psychological, anthropological, sociological, and neuro-biological literature. We present a theoretical model we have labeled the M...
Background: Previous studies on perceptual letter-matching have found that younger and older adults showed “fast-same” effects for response time and “false-different” effects for errors but the effects were more pronounced for older adults. According to the Noisy Operator Theory, internal noise in visual processing distorts “same” trials into appea...
The inability to recognize and describe emotions in the self is known as Alexithymia. Such inability, occurring more frequently in men, has been attributed to late suppression of emotion. In the present study we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to examine the locus of processing emotional differences in alexithymia. We tested men, both those sc...
Background/Study Context: While most aging research on memory uses a retention interval of one hour or less, episodic consolidation takes longer (e.g., 6–24 hours for synaptic consolidation). In three experiments, we examined age differences in recall followed by recognition in which the retention interval was varied in younger and older adults. Me...
Previous studies suggest that older adults process positive emotions more efficiently than negative emotions, whereas younger adults show the reverse effect. We examined whether this age-related difference in emotional bias still occurs when attention is engaged in two emotional tasks. We used a psychological refractory period paradigm and varied t...
The Normative Male Alexithymia Hypothesis proposes that men may have more difficulty in displaying emotion—especially vulnerable emotions such as fear (Levant, 1992). Specifically, Alexithymics may exhibit emotional recognition deficits—especially for angry faces (hypothesized to arouse fear) relative to happy faces. Also, early repression (unconsc...
Tipper, Paul and Hayes found object-based correspondence effects for door-handle stimuli for shape judgments but not colour. They reasoned that a grasping affordance is activated when judging dimensions related to a grasping action (shape), but not for other dimensions (colour). Cho and Proctor, however, found the effect with respect to handle posi...
We examined Goslin, Dixon, Fischer, Cangelosi, and Ellis's (Psychological Science 23:152-157, 2012) claim that the object-based correspondence effect (i.e., faster keypress responses when the orientation of an object's graspable part corresponds with the response location than when it does not) is the result of object-based attention (vision-action...
Hi All! I am looking for a public dataset that includes a lot of text (such as diary entries) and psychological outcomes such as well-being, cognitive ability, mental health, etc... Does anyone know of any datasets that would be appropriate?
Thanks so much!
I am getting started with a new faculty position and am looking to acquire an ECG/EKG to collect data on HR and HR variability. All suggestions are welcome!
I am conducting a survey on qualtrics and would like to include the RAVLT as my memory measure. I am thinking of including a link to another website. Has anyone else ever conducted similar memory test online?
