Trait and State-Dependent Risk Attitude of Monkeys Measured in a Single-Option Response Task
This work examined the risk attitude of three male monkeys in a single-option response task, in which an instrumental lever-release was required to obtain a chance of reward.
Early temperamental fearfulness and the developmental trajectory of error‐related brain activity
Fearful children were characterized by a decreased ERN when they were 6-year-old; by age 9, the same children who were fearful at age 3 had increased ERNs-a pattern that closely resembles that of anxious adolescents and adults.

Testing a Continuum Structure of Self-Determined Motivation: A Meta-Analysis
Results largely supported a continuum-like structure of motivation and indicate that self-determination is central in explaining human motivation, but did not support the inclusion of integrated regulation or the 3 subscales of intrinsic motivation.
The relation between reactivity at 4 months and Behavioral Inhibition in the second year: Replication Across Three Independent Samples.
Examination of the predictive relations between two infant temperamental biases assessed at 4 months and inhibited behavior during the first two years of life in three independent samples from two research laboratories found that boys identified as high reactive were more inhibited than high reactive girls.
Evidence against the continuum structure underlying motivation measures derived from self-determination theory.
Self-determination theory (SDT) proposes a multidimensional conceptualization of motivation in which the different regulations are said to fall along a continuum of self-determination. The continuum
