40 Hz Gamma Sensory Stimulation Effects on Memory Performance in Cognitively Healthy Older Adults
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-04)
Recent studies have demonstrated that a gamma sensory stimulation, light and sound flickering at 40 Hz, decreased Alzheimer’s symptoms and pathology in mice. Subsequent human trials showed similar results. Here we focus ...
Examining Social Influence's Effect on Decision-Making and Bayesian Truth Serum
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-04-28)
Decision-making—whether individual or in groups—can be subject to revision based on social influence, often pulling one’s opinions towards the apparent consensus (Mason, Conrey, & Smith, 2007). Social influence has been ...
Demanding and Supportive Transformational Leadership Behaviors and Follower Sleep Outcomes: A Multilevel Moderated Serial Mediation Model
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-12-23)
Transformational leadership behaviors in the workplace are commonly studied as a form of support and are associated with positive follower health outcomes. However, when parsed apart into its facets, transformational ...
Real Work Task Performance: The Role of Abilities, Non-Ability Traits, and Proximal Variables
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-08-18)
The objective of this study was to develop new, ecologically valid measures of adult intelligence that are representative of tasks that adults might encounter in their everyday lives. In order to accomplish this objective, ...
Cross-modal schema effect of music pairing on shape sequence acquisition
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-07-14)
Music is a multidimensional sequence of pitches and temporal intervals that has a predictable structure over time. Prior literature has revealed that humans are innately equipped to learn and anticipate these pitches and ...
The Impact of Criterion Shifts on Evidence Accumulation in the Inferior Temporal Cortex
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-08-09)
Decision-making is a cognitive process that occurs in stages and can be conceptualized by variations of sequential sampling models which suggest that, for the options in a binary forced-choice decision-making task, there ...
FRAME ANALYSIS: A MODERN APPROACH TO FACTOR ANALYSIS
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-11-11)
We introduce and develop a new statistical method for exploring latent structures: Frame Analysis. Frame Analysis drops the one-to-one correspondence between factor dimensionality and vector space representation found in ...
Exposure and physiological reactivity to daily stressors: the role of perceived stress, perceived stress reactivity, age, and cognitive ability
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-03-04)
Identifying individual differences that buffer or exacerbate physiological reactivity to stressors can have important implications for health and well-being. This study focused on the roles perceived life stress, perceived ...
Perceived Relational Risk and Perceived Situational Risk Scales
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-10-10)
This technical report provides an overview of how to use scales that were developed for perceived relational risk and perceived situational risk.
Hypothesis-guided testing behavior: The role of generation, meta-cognition, and search
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-03-13)
Hypothesis testing is the act of acquiring information to challenge or promote a decision-maker’s beliefs (i.e., hypotheses) in diagnostic tasks. To date, theorists have conceptualized this behavior as a consequence of ...
