  1. James Allan Cheyne, Jonathan S. A. Carriere & Dan Smilek (2013). Age Differences in Attention Lapses Mask Age Differences in Memory Failures: A Methodological Note on Suppression. Frontiers in Psychology 4.
    Although objective measures of memory performance typically indicate memory declines with age, self-reported memory failures often show no relation to age. In contrast, self-reported attention failures are reliably negatively correlated with age. This contrast suggests the possibility that age-related awareness and reporting of memory failures might be masked by a concurrent decrease in attention failures, which would reduce encoding failures with age and hence reduce perceived memory failures. Self-reported problems of attention and memory were evaluated in two samples with the (...)

  2. Paul Seli, Jonathan S. A. Carriere, Merrick Levene & Dan Smilek (2013). How Few and Far Between? Examining the Effects of Probe Rate on Self-Reported Mind Wandering. Frontiers in Psychology 4.
    We examined whether the temporal rate at which thought probes are presented affects the likelihood that people will report periods of mind wandering. To evaluate this possibility, we had participants complete a sustained-attention task (the Metronome Response Task; MRT) during which we intermittently presented thought probes. Critically, we varied the average time between probes (i.e., probe rate) across participants, allowing us to examine the relation between probe rate and mind-wandering rate. We observed a positive relation between these variables, indicating that (...)

  3. Trish L. Varao Sousa, Jonathan S. A. Carriere & Dan Smilek (2013). The Way We Encounter Reading Material Influences How Frequently We Mind Wander. Frontiers in Psychology 4.
    We examined whether different encounters of reading material influence the likelihood of mind wandering, memory for the material, and the ratings of interest in the material. In a within-subjects design participants experienced three different reading encounters: 1) reading a passage aloud, 2) listening to a passage being read to them, and 3) reading a passage silently. Throughout each reading encounter probes were given in order to identify mind wandering. After finishing the passage participants also rated how interesting it was and (...)
