Article
Full-text available
The effects of implicit and explicit associative processes for false recognition were examined by manipulating exposure duration of studied items; 20 ms or 2000 ms. Participants studied lists of words that were high associates to a nonpresented word (critical lure) in either condition. After learning each list, they took a recognition test and reme...

Two viral photographs, #The Dress and #The Jacket, have received recent attention in research on perception as the colors in these photos are ambiguous. In the current study, we examined perception of these photographs across three different cultural samples: Sweden (Western culture), China (Eastern culture), and India (between Western and Eastern...

People are sensitive to bitter taste because bitterness serves as a warning sign of poisons. Previous research reported that taste receptors in the oral cavity are more sensitive to bitter taste than to sweet taste. Other sensory systems, i.e., auditory, olfactory, tactile and visual, have also been shown to be involved in the sense of taste, a phe...
Article
The reminiscence bump is the effect that people recall more personal events from their teenage period than from adjacent lifetime periods. The effect is generally found in studies that divide the results of participants, who were at least 40 years old, into age bins of 10 years. In this study, the temporal distribution of autobiographical memories...

As a way to investigate false memory in the laboratory, the DRM paradigm ( Deese-Roediger- McDermott paradigm; Roediger & McDermott, 1995) has received much attention recently. This study was conducted to make 15-word Japanese lists which induce false memory of critical nonpresented words (CNWs) at high probabilities for the DRM paradigm. In experi...

We investigated the immediate and maintenance effects of mental-imagery-based mnemonic training on improving youths’ working memory, long-term memory, arithmetic and spatial abilities, and fluid intelligence. In Experiment 1, 26 Chinese participants (15 boys, 11 girls) aged 10–16 years were divided into an experimental group that received 8 days of...
Article
Full-text available
The present study examined whether the three major functions of autobiographical memory observed in Western societies (i.e., directing-behavior, social-bonding, and self-continuity) also exist in an East Asian society. Two self-report measures were used to assess the autobiographical memory functions of Japanese men and women. Japanese young adults...

Objective: We developed a visual aid on pesticide residue to promote better consumer understanding of risk control regarding amounts of pesticide residue in food, and examined the aid's effect on consumer risk perception relative to different design elements. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted for 80 graduate and undergraduate students...
Article
Full-text available
The universal cultural validity of the comparative ignorance hypothesis of ambiguity aversion was investigated. We also examined if cultural differences in choice preference were observed between Westerners, by using a sample of French participants, and Easterners by using a sample of Japanese participants. Furthermore, we investigated if differenc...

Many recent experiments have explored the way people take advice into account. It has been observed that in so doing participants often rely on one of the two following strategies: averaging between the different opinions or choosing one of the opinions, as opposed to using more complex weighting strategies. While several factors that affect strate...

Hindsight bias is a mistaken belief that one could have predicted a given outcome once the outcome is known. Choi and Nisbett (20005. Choi , I. and Nisbett , R. E. 2000 . Cultural psychology of surprise: Holistic theories and recognition of contradiction . Journal of Personality and Social Psychology , 79 : 890 – 905 . [CrossRef], [PubMed], [Web of...

Nisbett etal. (Psychol Rev 108:291–310, 2001) claim that East Asians are likely to use holistic thought to solve problems, whereas Westerners use analytic thought more, and discuss the differences in the frame of the individualism/collectivism distinction. The holistic versus analytic distinction has been the greatest point of interest of dual proc...

In this paper, we investigate the impact of two factors on the way people address conflicting information. One relates to culture and the other to the communicative context in which contradiction occurs. We compared two theoretical approaches, one that focuses on the former factor-the culturalist approach-and one that focuses on the latter factor-t...

The present study applied the false memory experimental paradigm to the functional independence-interdependence issue of bilinguals. Seventy-four Japanese university students who had learned English for at least seven years participated in a list-learning experiment. Most of them were considered as Japanese-dominant bilinguals. Twelve 15-word-list...
