METHODS Data were obtained from a cross-sectional, multisite behavioral survey of adults (N=7925) recently reported to be HIV positive. RESULTS At the time interviews were(More)
BACKGROUND Nonadherence to antiretroviral therapy (ARVT) is an important behavioral determinant of the success of ARVT. Nonadherence may lead to virological failure, and increases the risk of development of drug resistance.

Source monitoring refers to mental processes leading to attributions regarding the origin of information. We tested Johnson, Hashtroudi, and Lindsay's (1993) assumption that prior source-relevant knowledge is used in some source-monitoring tasks. In two experiments using different domains of schematic knowledge, two sources presented information that was(More)
Compared with other racial/ethnic groups in the United States, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are more likely to be at an advanced stage of AIDS disease and have opportunistic infections at the time of diagnosis.

We describe factors associated with nonadherence to primary PCP prophylaxis. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We used 2000-2004 data from the Supplement to HIV/AIDS(More)
Two schema-based hypotheses were developed and tested regarding recall for the following five types of spatial relations: scene-expected relations, two types of scene-unexpected relations, and two types of scene-irrelevant relations. In two experiments, subjects read relations that were described in passages and then recalled the passages. An attention(More)
