Confidence, not consistency, characterizes flashbulb memories.
(Psychol Sci, 2003-09)
On September 12, 2001, 54 Duke students recorded their memory of first hearing about the terrorist attacks of September 11 and of a recent everyday event. They were tested again either 1, 6, or 32 weeks later. Consistency ...
Gene expression signatures of radiation response are specific, durable and accurate in mice and humans.
(PLoS One, 2008-04-02)
BACKGROUND: Previous work has demonstrated the potential for peripheral blood (PB) gene expression profiling for the detection of disease or environmental exposures. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We have sought to determine the ...
Patient detection of a drug dispensing error by use of physician-provided drug samples.
Measuring disease-free survival and cancer relapse using Medicare claims from CALGB breast cancer trial participants (companion to 9344).
(J Natl Cancer Inst, 2006-09-20)
To determine the accuracy with which Medicare claims data measure disease-free survival in elderly Medicare beneficiaries with cancer, we performed a criterion validation study. We merged gold-standard clinical trial data ...
Gauging possibilities for action based on friction underfoot.
(J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform, 2007-10)
Standing and walking generate information about friction underfoot. Five experiments examined whether walkers use such perceptual information for prospective control of locomotion. In particular, do walkers integrate information ...
Flashbulb memories and posttraumatic stress reactions across the life span: age-related effects of the German occupation of Denmark during World War II.
(Psychol Aging, 2006-03)
A representative sample of older Danes were interviewed about experiences from the German occupation of Denmark in World War II. The number of participants with flashbulb memories for the German invasion (1940) and capitulation ...
Survival expectations of the obese: Is excess mortality reflected in perceptions?
(Obes Res, 2005-04)
OBJECTIVE: This study compared self-reported subjective life expectancy (i.e., probability of living to age 75) for normal-weight, overweight, and obese weight groups to examine whether individuals are internalizing information ...
A fruit in the hand or two in the bush? Divergent risk preferences in chimpanzees and bonobos.
(Biol Lett, 2008-06-23)
Human and non-human animals tend to avoid risky prospects. If such patterns of economic choice are adaptive, risk preferences should reflect the typical decision-making environments faced by organisms. However, this approach ...
Gene expression signatures that predict radiation exposure in mice and humans.
(PLoS Med, 2007-04)
BACKGROUND: The capacity to assess environmental inputs to biological phenotypes is limited by methods that can accurately and quantitatively measure these contributions. One such example can be seen in the context of exposure ...
The spatiotemporal dynamics of autobiographical memory: neural correlates of recall, emotional intensity, and reliving.
(Cereb Cortex, 2008-01)
We sought to map the time course of autobiographical memory retrieval, including brain regions that mediate phenomenological experiences of reliving and emotional intensity. Participants recalled personal memories to auditory ...
