Task interference from event-based prospective memory: an event-related potentials study
The results seemed to support preparatory attentional processes and memory processes theory and revealed that frontal lobe was involved in monitoring, which caused task interference effect.
The cognitive advantage for one’s own name is not simply familiarity: An eye-tracking study
Eye-tracking technique and visual search task provided important evidence that one’s own name has the potential to capture attention and that familiarity cannot account for this advantage.
Effect of characteristics of target cues on task interference from prospective memory
The results seemed to support preparatory attentional and memory processes theory and suggested frontal lobe involvement in monitoring caused task interference effects, and those characteristics of cues modulated the amount of task interference and the extent to which the frontal lobe was engaged.
Minorities remember more: The effect of social identity salience on group-referent memory
It is suggested that high salience is a prerequisite for social identities to facilitate memory in students at predominantly Han Chinese universities and Tibetan students at one Tibetan-majority university.
Left behind, not alone: feeling, function and neurophysiological markers of self-expansion among left-behind children and not left-behind peers
The results provide important insights into how left-behind children cope with the loss of parental presence: they include their grandmother in their sense of self.
The effect of self-referencing on memory for different kinds of source information
Results show that self-referencing has enhanced memory for spatial location of words whatever this information is learned intentionally or incidentally, whereas it cannot facilitate memory for the colour of words under the intentional learning condition, nor can it under the incidental condition.
Self-Advantage in the Online World
The results showed that one’s own screen name and real name were detected faster than famous names in both visual search and discrimination tasks, and this suggests that familiarity might not be the determining factor for self-advantage.
The Effect of Attention to Self-Related Information
Studies of attention capture by self-related information have reached inconsistent results, so there is much debate about whether self-related information can capture attention automatically. Given
Name Letter Effect—An Index of Implicit Self-Esteem
Name-letter effect refers to the phenomenon that people evaluate the letters in their own names more favorably than letters that are not in their own names. It reflects an implicit positive attitude
