      Roman, John William (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-12-17)
      This experiment will use event-related brain potential (ERP) measures to investigate the time course of emotional expression processing across six emotions (happy, sad, anger, fear, disgust, and neutral) in young and older ...
    • Culture influences source-memory for self-referenced information 

      Blenis, Robert Colin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-05-07)
      Much of existing memory research has focused on individuals from Western cultures. As our society becomes increasingly multi-cultural, a cross-cultural approach to memory research is critical for generating more generalizable ...
    • Development of a Cohesive Theory of Leadership 

      Halter, Jeffery T., Jr. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
      Previous assessments of leadership have failed to fully take into account what leadership is. Therefore, the goal for this study was to combine existing theories into one cohesive theory. In this study, undergraduate ...
    • Driver Onset Braking Time: The Uncertainty Involved With Approaching an Intersection 

      Ryan, Christopher (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-05)
      Many automobile accidents occur at intersections, which are often controlled by stop signs and traffic lights. Understanding how a driver interprets, anticipates, and responds to stop signs and traffic lights could help ...
    • The Effects of Experience with a Technology on Privacy Concerns and Disclosure of Health Information 

      Burnham, Kaylee E. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-05)
      Although the ubiquity of technology can make many aspects of life more convenient, it may simultaneously raise concerns about the privacy of personal information. While the link between privacy, self-disclosure, and new ...
    • Effects of Word Replacement on Juror Perceptions and Guilt Ratings During a Criminal Trial 

      Coons, Courtney A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-12)
      This research was performed with the aim of improving the body of knowledge on juror perceptions during criminal trials. Three juries were formed of men and women at least 18 years old. The juries witnessed key excerpts ...
    • Efficiency of Spearcon-Enhanced Navigation of One Dimensional Electronic Menus 

      Palladino, Dianne K. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05)
      This study simulated and compared cell phone contact book menu navigation using combinations of both auditory (text-to-speech and spearcons) and visual cues. A total of 127 undergraduates participated in a study that ...
    • Emotion Biases in Older and Younger Adults: Novelty Preference as an Index of Attention 

      Brauer, Anne Lisa (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-12-17)
      Past research indicates that emotionally-relevant stimuli attract visual attention, but also that the relationship between emotion and attention allocation varies between young and older adults. Although both young and ...
    • Environmental Effects on Variable Practice of Example Formats 

      Kishi, Roudabeh (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-07)
      There is a lack of women in mathematics-related fields. This might be due to stereotype threat, when a person performs worse than usual when presented with a negative stereotype because they are worried they will prove the ...
    • False memory and aging: an event-related potential study 

      Rieck, Jennifer Rose (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-05-04)
      The DRM paradigm is used to examine false memory—when a list of highly associated words (e.g. SEWING, THREAD, THIMBLE) is studied, a nonpresented but associated false target (e.g. NEEDLE) is often confidently (but incorrectly) ...
    • Functional Neuroimaging Investigation of the Neural Mechanisms for Successful Feeling-of-Knowing Judgments 

      Greenberg, Ronit (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
      A feeling-of-knowing (FOK) is a sense of knowing that an item would be recognizable if seen again later, despite one’s current inability to recall that item from memory. An FOK judgment occurs after a memory search and is ...
    • Gender Differences in Spatial Abilities 

      McNulty, Kathleen Patricia (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-12-17)
      The purpose of this study is to summarize past research concerning gender differences in spatial abilities through the use of a detailed meta-analysis. Many investigators have claimed that there is a significant gender ...
    • Impact of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation on Leadership Emergence in Teams 

      Nandagopal, Bharathwaj (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-07-18)
      This paper explores the relationship between motivation (intrinsic & extrinsic) and leadership emergence in order to mitigate extreme (too much or too little) leadership claiming and granting. The study examines DeRue and ...
    • The implications of attention control on working memory span 

      Gay, Catherine E. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-05)
      Previous research has suggested that attention control is strongly implicated in working memory span. The current study utilized participants who had previously been tested for working memory capacity with the operation ...
