There is a growing research interest in the affective aspects of climate change and their links with pro-climate engagement as well as with health and wellbeing. Yet, psychometrically valid instruments assessing the wide panorama of climate change emotions are limited. Here, we report on the development and validation of the Inventory of Climate Em...
Article
Background: Psychedelics are able to acutely alter emotional reactivity and self-consciousness. However, whether the regular naturalistic use of psychedelics can be linked to more persistent trait-level changes in these domains remains an open question. Aim: To test the hypotheses that (1) using psychedelics is related to higher positive and low...
Article
Studies within the last decade have reported neural and behavioral differences in cognitive control between men with the pedophilic disorder who commit (CSO+) and do not commit (CSO-) child sexual abuse. Prior studies reported a higher number of errors in Go/Nogo task and lower activity of the prefrontal cortex in NoGo trials, in CSO + compared wit...

Background: Psychedelics are able to acutely alter emotional reactivity and self-consciousness. However, whether regular, naturalistic use of psychedelics can be linked to more persistent, trait-level changes in these domains remains an open question.Aim: To test three hypotheses: i) psychedelics use is related to higher positive and lower negative...

Introduction One of the core symptoms of alcohol use disorder (AUD) is impulsivity. The recently published study on the Impulsivity Scale 12 (IS-12) offers a promising tool to use in clinics working with clients with AUD due to its simplicity. IS-12 includes subscales related tocognitive impulsivity and behavioral impulsivity, which are related to...

Introduction The pedophilic disorder is characterized by a sexual preference for children and leads to child sexual abuse (CSA) in half of the patients. Studies showed that pedophiles with a history of CSA (CSA+) are inferior, in inhibitory control, to those without (CSA-). Objectives Inhibitory control may be influenced by negative affectivity, w...

Background Alcohol consumption is one of the risk factors associated with over 200 types of diseases, being strongly correlated with unemployment, low socioeconomic status, traffic accidents, and violence. Alcohol is also one of the main causes of premature deaths, especially among males. Early diagnosis based on screening may help to prevent the e...

Theory of mind plays a fundamental role in human social interactions. People generally better understand the mental states of members of their own race, a predisposition called the own-race bias, which can be significantly reduced by experience. It is unknown whether the ability to understand mental states can be similarly influenced by own-age bia...

Pathological use of smartphones may be the biggest non-drug addiction of the 21st century. Therefore, rapid screening tools designed for easy identification of people with problematic mobile phone use are needed. The main aim of the present study was to validate a short version of the Mobile Phone Problematic Use Scale (MPPUS-10) in the Polish popu...

Background: Substance use is a growing problem worldwide, and there is a great need to develop national policies addressing prevention and treatment of substance-use disorders (SUD). However, the lack of a commonly used, valuable diagnostic tool to assess the symptoms of SUDs precludes comparison of the prevalence of drug-use problems as well as t...
Article
Abnormalities in reward processing are crucial symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD) and schizophrenia (SCH). Recent neuroscientific findings regarding MDD have led to conclusions about two different symptoms related to reward processing: motivational and consummatory anhedonia, corresponding, respectively, to impaired motivation to obtain re...

Introduction: Anhedonia occures as symptom in major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, substance dependence and also as a trait in the general population. Moreover, it is also described as potential risk factor for developing psychiatric disorders. One of the basic methods used in anhedonia studies are various self-report questionnaires. However,...

Anhedonia (originally defined as "inability to experience pleasure") occurs as a symptom in major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, addiction and also as a trait in the general population. However, recent studies on experiencing pleasure make classical definition of anhedonia out-of-date. The feeling of pleasure is tied to reward processing which...

Project
The aim of the project is to use the methods of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to estimate permanent changes in cognitive and emotional functioning in regular users of classic psychedelics (not under the influence of substances during the study). The research will therefore help to estimate, using neuroimaging methods (EEG, MRI), the risks and benefits of using psychedelic substances in healthy people.
Project
The aim of our research project is to understand and describe how climate change makes us feel and what it means for our mental health and climate action taking. To this end, we will conduct a series of studies using questionnaire and experimental methods. The research will be based on data collected in Poland and Norway, two countries heavily dependent on fossil fuels, but with a different social and individual perception regarding the urgency of climate action. https://climate-change-emotions.org/
