    Suppose that you are at a live jazz show. The drummer begins a solo. You see the cymbal jolt and you hear the clang. But in addition seeing the cymbal jolt and hearing the clang, you are also aware that the jolt and the clang are part of the same event. Casey O’Callaghan (forthcoming) calls this awareness “intermodal feature binding awareness.” Psychologists have long assumed that multimodal perceptions such as this one are the result of a subpersonal feature binding mechanism (...)

    Remaining committed to goals is necessary (albeit not sufficient) to attaining them, but very little is known about domain-general individual differences that contribute to sustained goal commitment. The current investigation examines the association between grit, defined as passion and perseverance for long-term goals, and retention in four different contexts: the military, workplace sales, high school, and marriage. Grit demonstrated incremental predictive validity over and beyond demographic variables and established predictors of retention in each setting. Grittier soldiers were more likely to (...)

  5. Nicole Flaig & Edward W. Large (forthcoming). Dynamic Musical Expression of Core Affect. Frontiers in Psychology.
    Is there something special about the way music communicates feelings? Theorists since Meyer (1956) have attempted to explain how music could stimulate varied and subtle affective experiences, for example by violating learned expectancies, or by mimicking other forms of social interaction. Our proposal is that music speaks to the brain in its own language; it need not imitate any other form of communication. We review recent theoretical and empirical literature, which suggests that all conscious processes consist of dynamic neural events, (...)

  6. Philippa Heath, Carmel Houston-Price & Orla Kennedy (forthcoming). Let's Look at Leeks! Picture Books Increase Toddlers' Willingness to Look at, Taste and Consume Unfamiliar Vegetables. Frontiers in Psychology.
    Research has shown that repeatedly looking at picture books about fruits and vegetables with parents can enhance young children’s visual preferences towards the foods in the book (Houston-Price et al, 2009) and influence their willingness to taste these foods (Houston-Price, Butler & Shiba, 2009). This article explores whether the effects of picture book exposure are mediated by infants' initial familiarity with and liking for the foods presented. In two experiments parents of toddlers aged between 19 and 26 months were asked (...)

    The present study examined to what extent proficiency in a non-native language influences speech perception in noise. We explored how English proficiency affected native (Swedish) and non-native (English) speech perception in four speech reception threshold (SRT) conditions including two energetic (stationary, fluctuating) and two informational (two-talker babble Swedish, two-talker babble English) maskers. Twenty-three normal-hearing native Swedish listeners participated, age between 28 and 64 years. The participants also performed standardized tests in English proficiency, non-verbal reasoning and working memory capacity. Our approach (...)

    Healthcare practitioners underestimate patients’ pain causing undesirable consequences on treatment decisions. Over-exposure and group membership are two reasons invoked, but a combination of factors may be involved. Studying human decoding of animals’ expressions of emotions showed that “identification” was necessary to decode the other’s expressions. We tested here the impact of different factors on the evaluation of horses’ expressions of poor welfare, by comparing caretakers’ reports and ethological observations concerning the prevalence of animals presenting stereotypic behaviours. Here we show that (...)

    Co-speech gestures constitute a unique form of multimodal communication because here the hand movements are temporally synchronized with speech, specifically with prosody, i.e., the rhythm and intonation of speech. Behavioral studies show that listeners utilize the coordination of gesture movements together with prosodic features of speech to improve language comprehension. Neuroimaging studies provide further evidence that the perception of a certain type of co-speech gesture, so-called beat gestures, which have long been suspected to relate to phonological units beyond the word (...)

    This study investigated maternal utterances during joint picture-book reading from the perspective of scaffolding. Unlike previous studies focusing on labeling, this study examined the utterances made about agents and actions while participants viewed pictures of scenes. Our first goal was to investigate whether mothers increased the frequency with which they requested information about agents and actions in their discrete utterances. The second goal was to investigate maternal responses to children’s utterances about agents and actions, focusing especially on whether mothers shifted (...)

    To what extent does the visual system process color and form separately? Proponents of the segregation view claim that distinct regions of the cortex are dedicated to each of these two dimensions. However, evidence is increasing that color and form processing are closely intertwined in the brain. We review psychophysical and neurophysiological studies on color and form perception and evaluate these results in light of recent developments in population coding.

    The crowd within effect shows that the average of two estimates from one person is more accurate than a single estimate of that person. The effect implies that the well documented wisdom of the crowd effect - the crowd's average estimate tends to be more accurate than the individual estimates - can be obtained within a single individual. The crowd within effect has important theoretical and practical implications, resulting in a widespread attention in both academic and non-academic reports. Despite its (...)

    Non-goal-directed mental states, such as mind wandering, constitute a large part of our mental experience, even though cognitive science has traditionally focussed on a wide variety of goal-directed mental states, such as focused attention, mindfulness and rumination. While goal-directed and non-goal-directed mental states seem unrelated, both types of mental states may arise from dynamic shifts between predictive and reactive control systems (PARCS) in the brain. These shifts between reactive and predictive control are part of processes that enable the intake of (...)

    The shortcomings of Null Hypothesis Significance Testing (NHST) are numerous and well known. An alternative that circumvents many of the limitations of NHST is the Bayesian approach to statistics. However, Bayesian techniques are often criticized as esoteric and difficult to understand. Thus, the aim of the present paper was to provide a clearly articulated guide to performing two Bayesian techniques: model comparison and parameter estimation. Guidelines are also provided regarding the presentation and interpretation of Bayesian results.
