Attentional Capture by Working Memory Contents
There has been controversy on whether working memory (WM) contents automatically guide attention. The present study tried to replicate the effect of WM-based attentional capture using an adaption of Downing's (2000) paradigm, in which WM and attentional...
Does It Matter Where We Meet? the Role of Emotional Context in Evaluative First Impressions
We investigated how emotionality of visual background context influenced perceptual ratings of faces. In two experiments participants rated how positive or negative a face, with a neutral expression (Experiment 1), or unambiguous emotional expression...
ÉMotion et Cognition Incarnée : La Dimension Motrice Des Réponses Verbales « Oui » et « Non »
Résumé : Les théories de la cognition incarnées font l'hypothèse que toutes les opérations cognitives, y compris celles de haut niveau sont fondamentalement enracinées dans les états actuels du corps et dans les systèmes sensori-moteurs du cerveau. Les...
Inverse Reference in Adults-Elementary Arithmetic
Mauro, LeFevre, and Morris (2003) and Campbell (2008) manipulated problem format to assess university students' simple division and subtraction. Large division problems (dividend > 25; e.g., 42 ÷ 6 = _) and large subtraction problems (minuend >...
Les Nuages Sont Un Troupeau De Moutons : À Quel âGe Les Enfants Comprennent-Ils Qu'il N'y Pas De Moutons Dans le Ciel ?

The environmental support hypothesis postulates that it may be possible to reduce older adults' deficits in episodic memory by providing environmental support at the encoding and/or retrieval phases. To examine the validity of this hypothesis, we varied...
Reflections on Blindsight: Neuroimaging and Behavioural Explorations Clarify a Case of Reversed Localisation in the Blind Field of a Patient with Hemianopia
Blindsight refers to residual visual abilities of patients with primary visual cortex lesions. Most of this research uses single case studies, most famously patient GY. We examined a patient (DC) after surgical resection of V1 who demonstrated robust...
Temporal Judgments of Immediate and Delayed Consequences of Self-Initiated Movements
This study was designed to examine the impact of a delay between a self-initiated movement and a subsequent auditory event on temporal judgements of movement or sound onset. Participants watched a red dot move in a clockwise direction around a circle...
The Target of Task Switching
