The normative and the personal life: individual differences in life scripts and life story events among USA and Danish undergraduates.
Life scripts are culturally shared expectations about the order and timing of life events in a prototypical life course. American and Danish undergraduates produced life story events and life scripts by listing the seven ...
Rhyme and Reason: Analyses of Dual Retrieval Cues
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 1989-07-01)
If and only if each single cue uniquely defines its target, a independence model based on fragment theory can predict the strength of a combined dual cue from the strengths of its single cue components. If the single cues ...
Internal languages of retrieval: the bilingual encoding of memories for the personal past.
(Mem Cognit, 2000-06)
In contrast to most research on bilingual memory that focuses on how words in either lexicon are mapped onto memory for objects and concepts, we focus on memory for events in the personal past. Using a word-cue technique ...
Telescoping is not time compression: a model of the dating of autobiographical events.
(Mem Cognit, 1989-11)
A model of telescoping is proposed that assumes no systematic errors in dating. Rather, the overestimation of recent occurrences of events is based on the combination of three factors: (1) Retention is greater for recent ...
Story recall by mentally retarded children.
(Psychol Rep, 1983-12)
Activation in mesolimbic and visuospatial neural circuits elicited by smoking cues: evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging.
(Am J Psychiatry, 2002-06)
OBJECTIVE: The authors sought to increase understanding of the brain mechanisms involved in cigarette addiction by identifying neural substrates modulated by visual smoking cues in nicotine-deprived smokers. METHOD: Event-related ...
Changes in Brain Resting-state Functional Connectivity Associated with Peripheral Nerve Block: A Pilot Study.
BACKGROUND: Limited information exists on the effects of temporary functional deafferentation (TFD) on brain activity after peripheral nerve block (PNB) in healthy humans. Increasingly, resting-state functional connectivity ...
Satisficing in split-second decision making is characterized by strategic cue discounting
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016-03-11)
Much of our real-life decision making is bounded by uncertain information, limitations in cognitive resources, and a lack of time to allocate to the decision process. It is thought that humans overcome these limitations ...
What shall I be, what must I be: Neural correlates of personal goal activation
(Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience, 2012-12-09)
How is the brain engaged when people are thinking about their hopes, dreams, and obligations? Regulatory focus theory postulates two classes of personal goals and motivational systems for pursuing them. Ideal goals, such ...
Cross-cultural variability of component processes in autobiographical remembering: Japan, Turkey, and the USA.
Although the underlying mechanics of autobiographical memory may be identical across cultures, the processing of information differs. Undergraduates from Japan, Turkey, and the USA rated 30 autobiographical memories on 15 ...
