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 ...
The centrality of event scale: a measure of integrating a trauma into one's identity and its relation to post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms.
(Behav Res Ther, 2006-02)
We introduce a new scale that measures how central an event is to a person's identity and life story. For the most stressful or traumatic event in a person's life, the full 20-item Centrality of Event Scale (CES) and the ...
Social context-dependent singing-regulated dopamine.
(J Neurosci, 2006-08-30)
Like the mammalian striatum, the songbird striatum receives dense dopaminergic input from the midbrain ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra pars compacta complex. The songbird striatum also contains a unique vocal nucleus, ...
A corollary discharge for perceptual stability
A molecular neuroethological approach for identifying and characterizing a cascade of behaviorally regulated genes.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2006-10-10)
Songbirds have one of the most accessible neural systems for the study of brain mechanisms of behavior. However, neuroethological studies in songbirds have been limited by the lack of high-throughput molecular resources ...
Disputes over memory ownership: What memories are disputed?
(Genes Brain Behav, 2006)
The ownership of memories is sometimes disputed, particularly by twins. Examination of 77 disputed memories, 71 provided by twins, showed that most of the remembered events are negative and that the disputants appear to ...
The Basic-Systems Model of Episodic Memory.
(Perspect Psychol Sci, 2006-12)
Behavior, neuropsychology, and neuroimaging suggest that episodic memories are constructed from interactions among the following basic systems: vision, audition, olfaction, other senses, spatial imagery, language, emotion, ...
People over forty feel 20% younger than their age: subjective age across the lifespan.
(Psychon Bull Rev, 2006-10)
Subjective age--the age people think of themselves asbeing--is measured in a representative Danish sample of 1,470 adults between 20 and 97 years of age through personal, in-home interviews. On the average, adults younger ...
