A masked priming procedure was used to explore developmental changes in the tuning of lexical word recognition processes. Lexical tuning was assessed by examining the degree of masked form priming and used two different types of prime-target lexical similarity: one letter different (e.g., rlay-->PLAY) and transposed letters (e.g., lpay-->PLAY). The(More)
We propose that individuals sometimes feel ashamed for the negative actions of their in-group because these actions constitute a threat to their identity. The present study examined factors that evoke shame when individuals recall instances of negative behavior committed by another in-group member. American undergraduates recalled instances when other(More)
The impact of cytomegalovirus (CMV) serostatus (seropositive [(+)] or seronegative [(-)]) of the donor (D) and recipient (R) on mortality after allogeneic non-T cell-depleted stem cell transplantation (SCT) in the era of preemptive therapy was assessed among 1750 patients by means of multivariable Cox regression models. In an analysis that included only(More)
Adenoviruses (ADV) are emerging as important causes of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In mainly non-T-cell depleted HSCT recipients, we analyzed the incidence of ADV infection, risk factors for infection, the effect of ganciclovir administered for prevention of cytomegalovirus (CMV), and the(More)
The cognitive abilities that predicted growth in response to a 12-week training program in phonological awareness were investigated with a sample of 100 kindergarten children. The children were selected from two elementary schools with historically low achievement in reading. Sixty children received training in both analytic and synthetic awareness skills,(More)
We used whole-head magnetoencephalograpy (MEG) to record changes in neuromagnetic N100m responses generated in the left and right auditory cortex as a function of the match between visual and auditory speech signals. Stimuli were auditory-only (AO) and auditory-visual (AV) presentations of /pi/, /ti/ and /vi/. Three types of intensity matched auditory(More)
OBJECTIVE To prospectively and externally validate the Mortality in Emergency Department Sepsis (MEDS) score as a predictor of 28-day mortality in patients who present to the emergency department with a systemic inflammatory response syndrome. DESIGN Multicentered prospective cohort study. SETTING Emergency departments at the University of Colorado(More)
The Thinking Head project has as it aims to develop (i) a new generation Talking Thinking Head that embodies human attributes, and improves human-machine interaction; and (ii) a plug-and-play research platform for users to test software in an interactive real-time environment. Here, project progress is discussed in terms of the four teams: 1. Head Building(More)
The current research uses a novel methodology to examine the role of semantics in reading aloud. Participants were trained to read aloud 2 sets of novel words (i.e., nonwords such as bink): some with meanings (semantic) and some without (nonsemantic). A comparison of reading aloud performance between these 2 sets of novel words was used to provide an(More)
