Evidence for preferential attachment: Words that are more well connected in semantic networks are better at acquiring new links in paired-associate learning.

Psychon Bull Rev 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

College of Behavioral & Social Sciences, Southeastern University, Lakeland, FL, USA.

Here, we view the mental lexicon as a semantic network where words are connected if they are semantically related. Steyvers and Tenenbaum (Cognitive Science, 29, 41-78, 2005) proposed that the growth of semantic networks follows preferential attachment, the observation that new nodes are more likely to connect to preexisting nodes that are more well connected (i.e. Read More

Transparency and Reproducibility of Meta-Analyses in Psychology: A Meta-Review.

Perspect Psychol Sci 2020 Jul 9;15(4):1026-1041. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

International Research Center for Neurointelligence, The University of Tokyo.

Systematic review and meta-analysis are possible as viable research techniques only through transparent reporting of primary research; thus, one might expect meta-analysts to demonstrate best practice in their reporting of results and have a high degree of transparency leading to reproducibility of their work. This assumption has yet to be fully tested in the psychological sciences. We therefore aimed to assess the transparency and reproducibility of psychological meta-analyses. Read More

Autonomic flexibility reflects learning and associated neuroplasticity in old age.

Hum Brain Mapp 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Elaine C. Hubbard Center for Nursing Research on Aging, School of Nursing, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA.

Effective learning in old age, particularly in those at risk for dementia, is essential for prolonging independent living. Individual variability in learning, however, is remarkable; that is, months of cognitive training to improve learning may be beneficial for some individuals but not others. So far, little is known about which neurophysiological mechanisms account for the observed variability in learning induced by cognitive training in older adults. Read More

Extension of the dual-memory model of test-enhanced learning to distributions and individual differences.

Psychon Bull Rev 2020 May 14. Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Psychology, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, San Diego, CA, 91093, USA.

The dual-memory model of test-enhanced learning (Rickard & Pan, 2018, Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 25[3], 847-869) provides empirically supported quantitative predictions about multiple core phenomena for the case of cued recall. That model has been evaluated to date only for mean proportion correct. However, it also makes predictions about the distribution over subjects for both test-condition proportion correct and testing-effect magnitude. Read More

Further Studies into Crack Growth in Additively Manufactured Materials.

Materials (Basel) 2020 May 12;13(10). Epub 2020 May 12.

Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Delft University of Technology, Kluyverweg 1, 2629 HS Delft, The Netherlands.

Understanding and characterizing crack growth is central to meeting the damage tolerance and durability requirements delineated in USAF Structures Bulletin EZ-SB-19-01 for the utilization of additive manufacturing (AM) in the sustainment of aging aircraft. In this context, the present paper discusses the effect of different AM processes, different build directions, and the variability in the crack growth rates related to AM Ti-6Al-4V, AM Inconel 625, and AM 17-4 PH stainless steel. This study reveals that crack growth in these three AM materials can be captured using the Hartman-Schijve crack growth equation and that the variability in the various versus curves can be modeled by allowing the terms Δ and to vary.

Senior Resident, Geriatric Clinic and Services, Department of Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS), Bengaluru, 56 0029, INDIA.

The National Task Force for Covid-19 of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in a bulletin dated March 21, 2020 recommended the use of hydroxychloroquine for prophylaxis in asymptomatic health care workers caring for suspected or confirmed patients and household contacts of confirmed patients. This is cause for concern with regard to bioethics and good clinical practice. The evidence for the efficacy of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine is currently derived from open label trials and cell culture studies with no conclusive evidence available from randomised clinical trials.

Behav Res Methods 2020 Jun;52(3):1313-1338

Department of Psychology, University of Freiburg, Engelbergerstrasse, 41, 79106, Freiburg, Germany.

Response-time extended multinomial processing tree models (RT-MPT; Klauer and Kellen, Journal of Mathematical Psychology, 82, 111-130 2018) provide estimates of process-completion times for cognitive processes modeled by means of multinomial processing tree (MPT) models (Batchelder and Riefer, Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 6, 57-86 1999). We present the R package rtmpt with which it is possible to fit RT-MPT models easily. The package is free and open source, it can be used with two established MPT syntaxes, and has a number of useful features, such as suppressing process-completion times for specific process outcomes, holding process probabilities constant, and changing some prior parameters.
