Multidimensional normative ratings for the International Affective Picture System
The purpose of the present investigation was to replicate and extend the International Affective Picture System norms (Ito, Cacioppo, & Lang, 1998; Lang, Bradley, & Cuthbert, 1999). These norms wereExpand
Improving balance by performing a secondary cognitive task.
Contrary to general findings in the attention and memory literature, some studies have shown that performing a secondary cognitive task produces an improvement in balance performance. The purpose ofExpand
Reducing postural sway by manipulating the difficulty levels of a cognitive task and a balance task.
Postural sway decreases when participants perform a balance task concurrently with a cognitive task. The present study examined whether this is based on the difficulty of the cognitive task, theExpand
Training in Timing Improves Accuracy in Golf
Abstract In this experiment, the authors investigated the influence of training in timing on performance accuracy in golf. During pre- and posttesting, 40 participants hit golf balls with 4 differentExpand
Emotional stimuli, divided attention, and memory.
The emotion-memory literature has shown that negative emotional arousal enhances memory. S. A. Christianson (1992) proposed that preattentive processing could account for this emotion-memoryExpand
Remembering a nuclear accident in Japan: Did it trigger flashbulb memories?
Flashbulb memories are vivid memories of the details surrounding the discovery of an emotional event. We investigated whether the nuclear accident that occurred in Japan in 1999 produced flashbulbExpand
Prospective memory and divided attention.
In three experiments, we manipulated the processing demands of a concurrent task to test the hypothesis that an event-based prospective memory task satisfies a criterion of automaticity proposed byExpand
Segregation accuracy in item-method directed forgetting across multiple tests.
Two experiments examined recall across tests following item-method directed-forgetting instructions and the varying of presentation duration of items at study. For both immediate testing (ExperimentExpand
Cued recall hypermnesia is not an artifact of response bias.
In two experiments, we examined whether hypermnesia occurs in cued recall when response bias is controlled by instructing subjects to generate more responses than they normally produce under standardExpand
Arousal, valence, and memory for detail
A common finding in the emotion‐memory literature is that memory is enhanced for positively arousing stimuli and negatively arousing stimuli relative to neutral stimuli. We tested the notion thatExpand
