A location-based ('select-what, respond-where') priming task was used to examine three measures of selective attention (interference (INT), negative priming (NP), and inhibition of return (IOR)) as a function of focal brain pathology and the complexity of target selection. Control subjects showed different patterns of performance for the three attentional(More)
To examine the extent of automaticity of emotional face processing in high versus low trait anxious participants, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded to emotional (fearful, happy) and neutral faces under varying task demands (low load, high load). Results showed that perceptual encoding of emotional faces, as reflected in P1 and early posterior(More)
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based DNA testing of archival cervical smear slides is a useful method of retrospectively establishing the presence of the human papillomavirus (HPV) in cervical cells. A cellular DNA recovery test is performed in parallel to HPV DNA testing to ensure that sufficient cells are present and purification of sample DNA has been(More)
A study is reported that examined the relationship between a measure of schizophrenic-like characteristics (schizotypy) in normal subjects and cognitive inhibition. Both repetitive and semantic measures of priming were used. It was found that low schizotypes showed negative priming (i.e. longer reaction times to the re-presentation of initially ignored(More)
