Misinformation and Its Correction
Recommendations may help practitioners—including journalists, health professionals, educators, and science communicators—design effective misinformation retractions, educational tools, and public-information campaigns.
Consensus on consensus: a synthesis of consensus estimates on human-caused global warming
The consensus that humans are causing recent global warming is shared by 90%–100% of publishing climate scientists according to six independent studies by co-authors of this paper. Those results are
Computational Modeling in Cognition: Principles and Practice
This book discusses Quantitative Modeling in a Broader Context, Bayesian Theories of Cognition, and Drawing Lessons and Conclusions from Modeling, which aims to clarify the role of Bayesian inference in neuroscience.
A working memory test battery for MATLAB
A battery of four working memory tasks that are implemented using MATLAB and the free Psychophysics Toolbox is presented, suggesting that the battery constitutes a versatile tool to assess working memory capacity with either English and Chinese-speaking participants.
The Role of Conspiracist Ideation and Worldviews in Predicting Rejection of Science
It is shown that conservatism and free-market worldview strongly predict rejection of climate science, in contrast to their weaker and opposing effects on acceptance of vaccinations, and that conspiracist ideation is associated with the rejection of all scientific propositions tested.
An endogenous distributed model of ordering in serial recall
A distributed model of memory for serial order, called SOB, that produces ordered serial recall by relying on encoding and retrieval processes that are endogenous to the model, demonstrates that distributed representations can support unambiguous recall, selective response suppression, and novelty-sensitive encoding.
Forgetting in immediate serial recall: decay, temporal distinctiveness, or interference?
The authors conclude that purely temporal views of forgetting are inadequate, and time-based decay, decreasing temporal distinctiveness, and interference are found to be inadequate.
Verbalizing facial memory: criterion effects in verbal overshadowing.
The VOE may reflect a change in recognition criterion rather than a changed processing style or alteration of the underlying memory trace, and this conclusion was confirmed by computational modeling of the data.
