Social norms and self-presentation: children's implicit and explicit intergroup attitudes.
It was shown that children below 10 years old were externally motivated to inhibit their in-group bias under high public self-focus and older children were internally motivated to suppress their bias as they showed implicit but not explicit bias. Expand
Semantic Processing in an Incidental Learning Task
Recent research on implicit learning has suggested that perceptual learning could account for the observed dissociation between task performance and associated verbal knowledge. We report threeExpand
Using Virtual Environments in the Assessment of Executive Dysfunction
The results suggest that virtual environments may provide a valid means of assessing planning impairments and that there may be patients with executive dysfunction (specifically planning deficits) that may not be detected by the currently available standardized tests. Expand
The role of confirmation bias in suspect interviews: A systematic evaluation
Purpose. The three studies presented in this paper systematically examined the effect of expectations of guilt on interviewer questioning style, confession, denial rates, and suspects' verbalExpand
Explicit and Implicit Trust within Safety Culture
A model that conceptualizes explicit trust as part of the surface levels of safety culture and implicit trust aspart of the deeper levels of health and safety culture is proposed, which suggests that trust and distrust are separate constructs. Expand
Understanding pretrial publicity: predecisional distortion of evidence by mock jurors.
Differences in predecisional distortion for mock jurors exposed to negative PTP (N-PTP) versus nonexposed control participants were examined in relation to motivated decision making and confirmation biases. Expand
Social Norms and Self-Presentation: Children's Implicit and Explicit
Two studies examined whether social norms and children's concern for self-presentation affect their intergroup attitudes. Study 1 examined racial intergroup attitudes and normative beliefs amongExpand
A lateralized bias in mental imagery: Evidence for representational pseudoneglect
It is established that there is a lateralized bias in reporting the details in mental images--representational pseudoneglect, and that pseudo-representational neglect arises as the result of a bias in the allocation of attention to the imagined scene. Expand
Multiple-Target Tracking: A Role for Working Memory?
The research suggests that after designated targets within the visual field have attracted preattentive indexes that point to their locations in space, conscious processes, vulnerable to secondary visual and spatial task interference, form deliberate strategies beneficial to the tracking task, before tracking commences.

Hemispatial asymmetries in judgment of stimulus size
In the present experiments, hemispatial size bias was measured through simultaneous presentation of a circle and an ellipse varying in horizontal or vertical extent; a consistent leftward bias of horizontal size judgments was obtained; at the point of subjective equality, the width of the objects that were presented in left hemispace was smaller than the width in right hemispACE.
