The relation between self-beliefs and academic achievement: A meta-analytic review
(Educational Psychologist, 2004-03-01)
There has been extensive debate among scholars and practitioners concerning whether self-beliefs influence academic achievement. To address this question, findings of longitudinal studies investigating the relation between ...
Studying human fertility and environmental exposures.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-08)
Stability in autobiographical memories
Songbirds and the revised avian brain nomenclature.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
It has become increasingly clear that the standard nomenclature for many telencephalic and related brainstem structures of the avian brain is based on flawed once-held assumptions of homology to mammalian brain structures, ...
Brain activity during episodic retrieval of autobiographical and laboratory events: an fMRI study using a novel photo paradigm.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2004-11)
Functional neuroimaging studies of episodic memory retrieval generally measure brain activity while participants remember items encountered in the laboratory ("controlled laboratory condition") or events from their own life ...
Methodologic and statistical approaches to studying human fertility and environmental exposure.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-01)
Although there has been growing concern about the effects of environmental exposures on human fertility, standard epidemiologic study designs may not collect sufficient data to identify subtle effects while properly adjusting ...
Learned birdsong and the neurobiology of human language.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
Vocal learning, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait found to date in only three distantly related groups of mammals (humans, bats, and cetaceans) and three distantly related groups of birds (parrots, hummingbirds, ...
Advances to Bayesian network inference for generating causal networks from observational biological data.
MOTIVATION: Network inference algorithms are powerful computational tools for identifying putative causal interactions among variables from observational data. Bayesian network inference algorithms hold particular promise ...
Facets of personality and the phenomenology of autobiographical memory
(Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2004-11-01)
The relationship between individual differences in autobiographical memory and personality was examined by having 118 undergraduates complete the NEO Personality Inventory after rating 15 word-cued autobiographical memories ...
What the brain stem tells the frontal cortex. I. Oculomotor signals sent from superior colliculus to frontal eye field via mediodorsal thalamus.
(J Neurophysiol, 2004-03)
Neuronal processing in cerebral cortex and signal transmission from cortex to brain stem have been studied extensively, but little is known about the numerous feedback pathways that ascend from brain stem to cortex. In this ...
