Recent studies suggest that months to years of intensive and systematic meditation training can improve attention. However, the lengthy training required has made it difficult to use random assignment of participants to conditions to confirm these findings. This article shows that a group randomly assigned to 5 days of meditation practice with the(More)
Sex differences in performance and in cortical activation patterns during mental rotation have rather consistently been reported. Data regarding sex differences of event-related potentials during the classic three-dimensional mental rotation task developed by Shepard and Metzler, however, are absent, and were therefore being addressed by this study. Mental(More)
Cultures affect human social behaviors including moral decision making. However, the brain mechanism underlying cross-cultural moral decision making is still unclear. In the current study, the neural correlates of cultural differences in moral decision making between Chinese and westerners were investigated by combining the event-related potential technique(More)
Mental imagery generation is essential in the retrieval and storage of knowledge. Previous studies have indicated that the holistic properties of mental imagery generation can be evaluated more easily than the partial properties. However, the relationship between partial and holistic mental imagery generations has not been clearly demonstrated. To address(More)
In recent years, writing, as one of the most important communicative skills, has been drawing increasing attention in English language teaching in China. This paper presents an investigation into the use of decomposition in Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to analyze textual coherence. Based on LSA and Halliday and Hasan's (1976) concepts of cohesion and(More)
This study was aimed to explore the cognitive mechanism of global advantage on mental rotation. Using event-related potential and divided-attention paradigm of compound stimuli, we observed that subjects`response to global rotation was faster than their response to local rotation, and the parietal P300 amplitude was inversely related to the character(More)
