Threat-related attentional biases represent a basic survival mechanism. These biases include an engagement bias involving rapid direction of attention toward threat and a disengagement bias involving slow direction of attention away from threat. The exact nature of these biases in healthy and anxious individuals remains controversial because of the(More)
Attentional control and working memory capacity are important cognitive abilities that substantially vary between individuals. Although much is known about how attentional control and working memory capacity relate to each other and to constructs like fluid intelligence, little is known about how trial-by-trial fluctuations in attentional engagement impact(More)
A great deal of prior research has examined the relation between estimates of working memory and cognitive abilities. Yet, the neural mechanisms that account for these relations are still not very well understood. The current study explored whether individual differences in working memory delay activity would be a significant predictor of cognitive(More)
Tree root respiration is an important component of the carbon balance in forest ecosystems; however, it is not clear whether root preparation treatments (such as excising and washing) affect root respiration measurements. Here, we aimed to compare the respiration rates of roots subjected to different treatments (i.e., washing with water vs. brushing without(More)
