And What’s Next?

So far, so good. This concludes our first look at the vast land of digital lead community fundraising. And it’s just that—a first look. Nothing more, but also nothing less. So here’s a brief look at

A New Problem for Aesthetics

The essay introduces the problem of aesthetic unreliability, the variety of ways in which it is difficult to grasp our aesthetic experience and the consequent confusion and unreliability of what we

Experience sampling during fMRI reveals default network and executive system contributions to mind wandering

An fMRI study that used experience sampling to provide an online measure of mind wandering during a concurrent task revealed a number of crucial aspects of the neural recruitment associated with mind wandering, highlighting the value of combining subjective self-reports with online measures of brain function for advancing the understanding of the neurophenomenology of subjective experience.



Introspecting about Reasons can Reduce Post-Choice Satisfaction

This study tested the prediction that introspecting about the reasons for one's preferences would reduce satisfaction with a consumer choice. Subjects evaluated two types of posters and then chose

The Misremembrance of Wines Past: Verbal and Perceptual Expertise Differentially Mediate Verbal Overshadowing of Taste Memory

When participants generate a detailed, memory-based description of complex nonverbal stimuli (e.g., faces) their recognition performance can be worse than nondescribing controls. This effect,

Thoughts beyond words : When language overshadows insight

Four experiments examined whether verbalization can interfere with insight problem solving. In Experiment 1, Ss were interrupted during problem solving and asked either to verbalize their strategies

Thinking too much: introspection can reduce the quality of preferences and decisions.

College students who analyzed why they felt the way they did agreed less with the experts than students who did not, which caused people to make choices that corresponded less with expert opinion.

Justification effects on the judgment of analogy

The effects of justification on judgment of the soundness of analogies were examined and provided reasons led to poorer discrimination between superficially similar aspects of the stimuli and analogous aspects.

Guiding the study of brain dynamics by using first-person data: Synchrony patterns correlate with ongoing conscious states during a simple visual task

First-person data can be used to detect and interpret neural processes and it was found that characteristic patterns of endogenous synchrony appeared in frontal electrodes before stimulation and depended on the degree of preparation and the immediacy of perception as verbally reported.

Apparent mental causation. Sources of the experience of will.

The experience of willing an act arises from interpreting one's thought as the cause of the act. Conscious will is thus experienced as a function of the priority, consistency, and exclusivity of the
