Spanish validation of the Aberrant Salience Inventory in a general adolescent population.

Psicothema 2019 May;31(2):210-217

Hospital Juan Ramón Jiménez (Huelva).

As adolescence is a critical period in development of the self and there are few instruments for evaluating AS, validation of the Aberrant Salient Inventory (ASI) is proposed for use in the general adolescent population.

Psicothema 2019 May;31(2):204-209

Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King's College London.

The first aim of our study was to develop a Spanish version of the Facebook Intrusion Questionnaire (FIQ-S), an instrument which emphasises the social components and consequences of excessive Facebook use. Second, we aimed to examine its psychometric properties: factor structure, reliability and external validity. Read More

Psicothema 2019 02;31(1):66-72

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Background: Metacomprehension skills determine an individual reader's ability to judge their degree of learning and text comprehension and have considerable importance in their ability to learn from reading. Given that many comprehension processes are influenced by text characteristics, the aim of the present study was to analyze whether different types of text have significant impact on metacomprehension skills at two different points in primary education.

Method: A total of 823 students (4th and 6th years of primary school, 9 to 11 years old) read three different texts (narrative, expository and discontinuous texts) taken from ECOM-PLEC. Read More

Influence of environmental enrichment on the volume of brain regions sensitive to early life stress by maternal separation in rats.

Psicothema 2019 Feb;31(1):46-52

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: Exposure to maternal separation (MS) in rodents may have long-lasting consequences for the structure and function of several brain regions, eventually associated with alterations in cognition and emotion later in life. Post-weaning environmental enrichment (EE) has been reported to ameliorate the detrimental effects of exposure to early life stress mainly in the hippocampus.

Method: In vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was applied to evaluate possible volumetric changes in the dorsal and ventral hippocampus, the medial prefrontal cortex and the dorsal striatum of 90-day-old male rats after daily MS for 240 min from postnatal days 2-21. Read More

Spanish version of the Phubbing Scale: Internet addiction, Facebook intrusion, and fear of missing out as correlates.

Psicothema 2018 Nov;30(4):449-454

University of Malaga.

Background: Phubbing is an increasingly common behavior that involves using a smartphone in a social setting of two or more people and interacting with the phone rather than with the other people. Research to date on phubbing has measured it using different scales or single questions, and therefore standard measures with appropriate psychometric properties are needed to improve its assessment. The aim of our study was to develop a Spanish version of the Phubbing Scale and to examine its psychometric properties: factor structure, reliability, and concurrent validity. Read More

Seven methods to determine the dimensionality of tests: application to the General Self-Efficacy Scale in twenty-six countries.

Psicothema 2018 11;30(4):442-448

Universidad de Salamanca

Background: One of the most important concepts within Cognitive Social Theory as framed by Bandura is the perceived self-efficacy; this concept became widespread in 1981 when Mathias Jerusalem and Ralf Schwarzer, using 10 items, established a one-dimensional and universal construct of this scale. The main purpose of this study is to show that the General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) is not a one-dimensional and universal construct, as is currently assumed.

Method: The data from 19,719 people from 26 countries were analyzed. Read More

Data analysis of incomplete repeated measures using a multivariate extension of the Brown-Forsythe procedure.

Psicothema 2018 11;30(4):434-441

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: A multivariate extension of the Brown-Forsythe (MBF) procedure can be used for the analysis of partially repeated measure designs (PRMD) when the covariance matrices are arbitrary. However, the MBF procedure requires complete data over time for each subject, which is a significant limitation of this procedure. This article provides the rules for pooling the results obtained after applying the same MBF analysis to each of the imputed datasets of a PRMD. Read More

Differences between individualist and collectivist cultures in emotional Facebook usage: relationship with empathy, self-esteem, and narcissism.

Psicothema 2018 Nov;30(4):376-381

Universidad de Oviedo.

Background: Adolescents are one of the groups who most use social networks in an emotional way, to express their own emotions and to empathize with the emotions of others. Although personality factors; namely, empathy, self-esteem, and narcissism appear to play an important role in this usage, the contribution of cultural variables has yet to be examined. The aim of this study is to examine cross-cultural variations in Facebook usage and the relationship of those variations with empathy, self-esteem and narcissistic personality factors. Read More
