The Rational Adolescent: Strategic Information Processing during Decision Making Revealed by Eye Tracking.
(Cogn Dev, 2015-10)
Adolescence is often viewed as a time of irrational, risky decision-making - despite adolescents' competence in other cognitive domains. In this study, we examined the strategies used by adolescents (N=30) and young adults ...
Effects of the dietary approaches to stop hypertension diet, exercise, and caloric restriction on neurocognition in overweight adults with high blood pressure.
High blood pressure increases the risks of stroke, dementia, and neurocognitive dysfunction. Although aerobic exercise and dietary modifications have been shown to reduce blood pressure, no randomized trials have examined ...

Task difficulty modulates brain activation in the emotional oddball task.
(Brain Res, 2017-06-01)
Previous functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have reported that task-irrelevant, emotionally salient events can disrupt target discrimination, particularly when attentional demands are low, while others ...
Using neuroimaging to individualize TMS treatment for depression: Toward a new paradigm for imaging-guided intervention.
The standard clinical technique for using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for major depressive disorder (MDD) is associated with limited efficacy to date. Such limited efficacy may be due to reliance ...
Component Neural Systems for the Creation of Emotional Memories during Free Viewing of a Complex, Real-World Event.
(Front Hum Neurosci, 2010)
To investigate the neural systems that contribute to the formation of complex, self-relevant emotional memories, dedicated fans of rival college basketball teams watched a competitive game while undergoing functional magnetic ...
Pinning down response inhibition in the brain--conjunction analyses of the Stop-signal task.
Successful behavior requires a finely-tuned interplay of initiating and inhibiting motor programs to react effectively to constantly changing environmental demands. One particularly useful paradigm for investigating inhibitory ...
Implementation and randomized controlled trial evaluation of universal postnatal nurse home visiting.
(Am J Public Health, 2014-02)
OBJECTIVES: We evaluated whether a brief, universal, postnatal nurse home-visiting intervention can be implemented with high penetration and fidelity, prevent emergency health care services, and promote positive parenting ...
Staying cool when things get hot: emotion regulation modulates neural mechanisms of memory encoding.
(Front Hum Neurosci, 2010)
During times of emotional stress, individuals often engage in emotion regulation to reduce the experiential and physiological impact of negative emotions. Interestingly, emotion regulation strategies also influence memory ...
Probabilistic inference under time pressure leads to a cortical-to-subcortical shift in decision evidence integration
Real-life decision-making often involves combining multiple probabilistic sources of information under finite time and cognitive resources. To mitigate these pressures, people “satisfice”, foregoing a full evaluation of ...
