Four experiments examined participants' ability to produce surface characteristics of sentences using an on-line story reading task. Participants read a series of stories in which either all, or the majority of sentences ...
Inner speech and bilingual autobiographical memory: a Polish-Danish cross-cultural study.
Thirty years after fleeing from Poland to Denmark, 20 immigrants were enlisted in a study of bilingual autobiographical memory. Ten "early immigrators" averaged 24 years old at the time of immigration, and ten "late immigrators" ...

Science is supposed to be cumulative, but scientists only rarely cumulate evidence scientifically. This means that users of research evidence have to cope with a plethora of reports of individual studies with no systematic ...
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 ...
Effectiveness of mentoring programs for youth: a meta-analytic review.

BOLD signal compartmentalization based on the apparent diffusion coefficient.
(Magn Reson Imaging, 2002-09)
Functional MRI (fMRI) can detect blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) hemodynamic responses secondary to neuronal activity. The most commonly used method for detecting fMRI signals is the gradient-echo echo-planar imaging ...
Smoking Cues Elicit Activation in Mesolimbic and Visuospatial Neural Circuits: Evidence from fMRI
(American Journal of Psychiatry, 2002)
Response decision processes and externalizing behavior problems in adolescents.
(Dev Psychopathol, 2002)
Externalizing behavior problems of 124 adolescents were assessed across Grades 7-11. In Grade 9, participants were also assessed across social-cognitive domains after imagining themselves as the object of provocations portrayed ...
