According to a recent meta-analysis, religious priming has a positive effect on prosocial behavior (Shariff et al., 2015). We first argue that this meta-analysis suffers from a number of methodological shortcomings that limit the conclusions that can be drawn about the potential benefits of religious priming. Next we present a re-analysis of the religious(More)
Optimal stopping problems require people to choose from a sequence of values, under the constraint that they cannot return to an earlier option once it is rejected. We study how people solve optimal stopping problems when the distribution of values they must choose from is not uniform, but is constructed to contain many high values or many low values. We(More)
In optimal stopping problems, people are asked to choose the maximum out of a sequence of values, under the constraint that a number can only be chosen when it is presented. We present a series of threshold models of human decision making on optimal stopping problems, including a new hierarchical model that assumes individual differences in threshold(More)
BACKGROUND The MEK inhibitor, selumetinib, suppresses soft-tissue sarcoma (STS) cell proliferation in vitro. Mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors possess modest activity against STS; however, resistance develops via MAPK pathway feedback activation. The combination of selumetinib and temsirolimus synergistically inhibits STS cell line growth. Therefore,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Craniocervical artery dissection is the most common cause of ischemic stroke identified in young adults. For the diagnosis of craniocervical artery dissection, multisequence MR imaging is recommended but is time-consuming. Recently, investigators proposed a simultaneous noncontrast angiography and intraplaque hemorrhage imaging(More)
