Seven experiments examine the influence of contextual timing manipulations on prospective time judgments. Subjects judged durations of standard vs comparison time intervals in the context of a preceding induction (context) sequence. In some experiments, the rate of the induction sequence was systematically manipulated relative to the range of to-be-judged(More)
A method is described for the preparation of mitochondria from the slime mould Physarum polycephalum; the mitochondria were not coupled. P. polycephalum mitochondria oxidized added NADH via a rotenone-insensitive pathway, but the oxidation of malate plus glutamate was rotenone sensitive; both of these substrates reduced much less cytochrome b than did(More)
Listeners were presented with sequences of tones that ascended in semitone intervals. On each trial a single target tone in the sequence was displaced in pitch, and listeners were required to indicate whether the target tone was higher or lower than its normal pitch. Task constraints, specifically target serial position uncertainty and the probabilistic(More)
Sonicated mitochondria catalyse the reduction of ferric salts, and the subsequent incorporation of Fe(2+) into haem, when provided with a reducing substrate such as succinate or NADH. The rate of haem synthesis was low under aerobic conditions and, after a short lag period, accelerated once anaerobic conditions were achieved; it was insensitive to antimycin(More)
A series of five experiments examined how the evaluation of a scientific finding was influenced by information about the number of studies that had successfully replicated the initial finding. The experiments also tested the impact of frame (negative, positive) and numeric format (percentage, natural frequency) on the evaluation of scientific findings. In(More)
1. delta-Aminolaevulate synthetase was detected in liver and kidney mitochondria prepared from normal rats. 2. The administration of allylisopropylacetamide induced an increase in delta-aminolaevulate synthetase in both liver and kidney mitochondria and the enzyme also appeared in the cytosol fraction of both tissues. Comparison with the distribution of(More)
The ROAR Lab is concerned with research on attentional rhythmicity. It is part of the Psychology Department at The Ohio State University where this lab has been active for over 15 years. Ohio State University is one of the largest state funded universities in the US; it is located in Columbus, Ohio. The department of Psychology at Ohio State comprises about(More)
