Effortful control moderates the relation between negative emotionality and socially appropriate behavior.

J Exp Child Psychol 2021 Jul 17;207:105119. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Department of Clinical Psychology, Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, WA 98119, USA.

The current study investigated the relation between negative emotionality and socially appropriate behavior in a diverse sample of preschool and kindergarten children (N = 74). More specifically, we tested whether effortful control would moderate this relation. A computerized task measured children's effortful control by assessing their accuracy in shifting attention between different emotionally valenced faces (happy and angry) while inhibiting their responses to neutral faces.

Opium Effect in Pregnancy on the Dynamics of Maternal Behavior: Testing a Neurochemical Model.

Neuropsychobiology 2021 19;80(2):147-157. Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Investigations into neurochemical mechanisms of opioid addiction are difficult due to the complexity of behavior and multiplicity of involved neurotransmitter and hormonal systems. The aim of this study was to examine the benefits of structured analysis of these mechanisms using the framework of the neurochemical model Functional Ensemble of Temperament (FET) and the example of maternal behavior under the condition of opium consumption in pregnancy. The FET differentiates between (a) endurance, (b) speed of integration, and (c) emotionality aspects of behavior suggesting that these systems are differentially regulated by (a) serotonin-neuropeptides-brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), (b) dopamine-GABA, and (c) opioid receptor systems, correspondingly.

Does valence contribute to the effects of dual tasking in aversive autobiographical memory? Some unexpected findings.

J Behav Ther Exp Psychiatry 2021 Jun 9;71:101616. Epub 2020 Sep 9.

Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Centre of Research on Psychology in Somatic Diseases, Tilburg University, Postbus 90153, 5000 LE Tilburg, the Netherlands; Department of Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, PsyQ, Lijnbaan 4, 2512, VA, The Hague, the Netherlands. Electronic address:

Background And Objectives: Lab experiments show that engaging in a working memory task while recalling an aversive memory reduces emotionality and vividness of memories. Studies targeting lab induced negative memory with valenced secondary tasks show promise, but work is needed on autobiographical memories to make it more in line with the original dual tasking research and PTSD treatment in clinical populations. In this study, we address this gap by evaluating differential effectiveness of valenced dual tasks on emotionality and vividness of aversive autobiographical memories. Read More

How Trauma, Depression, and Gender Roles Lead to Intimate Partner Violence Perpetration Among a Sample of Predominately Low-Income Black, Indigenous, Men of Color: A Mixed Methods Study.

J Interpers Violence 2020 Oct 21:886260520967139. Epub 2020 Oct 21.

Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Despite decades of research and significant efforts by practitioners and advocates, intimate partner violence (IPV) in the United States remains a public health issue that disproportionately affects racial/ethnic minorities. The lack of mixed methods and qualitative studies, particularly with Black, Indigenous, Men of Color (BIMOC), limits the field's ability to tease apart the complex, multifaceted aspects of IPV perpetration and minimizes diverse perspectives of how childhood trauma and key proximal factors culminate in IPV perpetration. An explanatory design, follow-up explanations model, was used with a sample of predominately low-income BIMOC in a batterer intervention program (BIP). Read More

Richard Carciofo

Chronobiol Int 2020 11 13;37(11):1565-1579. Epub 2020 Aug 13.

Department of Health and Environmental Sciences, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University , Suzhou, China.

Eveningness has been associated with maladaptive behavior, poor sleep quality, and psychological disorder. However, while much research has utilized unidimensional measures of morningness-eveningness, the current study aimed to test associations between negative emotionality (depression, anxiety, and stress/DAS) and the circadian rhythm components of morning affect/alertness, eveningness, and amplitude of diurnal variation (distinctness). Associations with maladaptive metacognitive beliefs, neuroticism, conscientiousness, and sleep quality were also investigated, and possible indirect (mediation) effects between the circadian rhythm components and negative emotionality were explored.

Psychometric Properties and a Preliminary Validation Study of the Italian Brief Version of the Communication Styles Inventory (CSI-B/I).

Front Psychol 2020 22;11:1421. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Department of Human Sciences, Society and Health, University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, Cassino, Italy.

People will typically develop a communication style that tends to be coherent with their own fundamental personality traits. The current debate on communication style acknowledges the construct of adaptive behavior as an appropriate area where to include both the strictly personal aspects and social learning and cultural assimilation, which translate into communicative style as a specific form of adaptation integrating the behavioral and personality perspectives. Due to the lack of instruments in the Italian psychometric scenario to assess communication styles, the present study included the translation and validation of the Italian short version of the (CSI-B/I).

Near-Death Experience Memories Include More Episodic Components Than Flashbulb Memories.

Front Psychol 2020 13;11:888. Epub 2020 May 13.

Coma Science Group, GIGA-Consciousness, University of Liège, Liège, Belgium.

Memories of near-death experiences (NDEs) are recalled as "realer" than memories of other real or imagined events. Given their rich phenomenology, emotionality and consequentiality, it was hypothesized that they could meet some aspects of the definition of flashbulb memories. We aimed to identify and compare the episodic and non-episodic information provided in verbal recollections of NDE, flashbulb, and control autobiographical memories. Read More

[Validation of the French version of the 10-item Big Five Inventory].

Encephale 2020 Dec 21;46(6):455-462. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Department of psychology et institute of personality and social research, university of California Berkeley, Berkeley, California, États-Unis; Paris, France.

Objective: Our primary objective was to validate the French version of the BFI-10, an ultra-short ten-item version of the Big Five Inventory (BFI; John et al., 1991), which allows for a reasonably accurate assessment of personality in circumstances in which more in-depth assessment is not possible. In order to reach a thorough evaluation of the external validity, we also aimed to examine the bandwidth of the BFI-10 scales with reference to the study by De Young, Quilty and Peterson (2007) who distinguished between two aspects in each of the Big Five: Assertiveness and Enthusiasm for Extraversion; Compassion and Politeness for Agreeability; Orderliness and Productiveness for Conscientiousness; Withdrawal and Volatility for Negative Emotionality, and finally Openness to Aesthetics and Openness to Ideas for Open-Mindedness.

Processing gender agreement errors in pleasant and unpleasant words: An ERP study at the sentence level.

Neurosci Lett 2020 01 15;714:134538. Epub 2019 Oct 15.

Cognitive Processes & Behaviour Research Group, Department of English and German, University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Spain. Electronic address:

In this study we examine the extent to which aspects such as the emotionality coded in words may interfere with the processing of gender agreement errors in a sentence grammaticality judgement task. We follow the methodological pattern of our previous experiments, using consistently the same kind of structure and task (gender agreement) and only emotional (pleasant vs unpleasant) words, in an attempt to clarify whether neural correlates and performance show similar patterns in positive and negative words. We found an emotional effect in the N400 time window for unpleasant adjectives as well as the classic grammaticality effects in the left anterior negativity (LAN) and the P600 components. Read More

Relations Between Dimensions of Emotional Intelligence, Specific Aspects of Empathy, and Non-verbal Sensitivity.

Front Psychol 2019 14;10:1066. Epub 2019 May 14.

Department of Basic Psychology II, National University of Distance Education, Madrid, Spain.

In this work, on the one hand, we examined the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and empathy and, on the other, the relationship between EI and non-verbal sensitivity, through two independent studies. The first study analyzed the relationship between dimensions of EI and aspects of empathy, in a sample of 856 participants who completed two measures of EI, the trait meta-mood scale (TMMS) and the trait emotional intelligence questionnaire (TEIQue), and a measure of empathy, the interpersonal reactivity index (IRI). The results showed a similar pattern of significant positive relations in all the EI domains with empathic perspective-taking (PT), and significant negative relationships with empathic personal distress (PD), except for the EI domain of attention, which had a positive relationship.

Conditional knockout of UBC13 produces disturbances in gait and spontaneous locomotion and exploration in mice.

Sci Rep 2019 03 13;9(1):4379. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Neuroscience, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Here we have characterized the functional impairments resulting from conditional knockout of the ubiquitin-conjugating E2 enzyme (UBC13) in rodent cerebellar granule neurons, which greatly increases the parallel fiber presynaptic boutons and functional parallel fiber/Purkinje cell synapses. We report that conditional UBC13 knockout mice exhibit reliable deficits on several gait-related variables when their velocity of ambulation is tightly controlled by a moving treadmill and by restricting space for movement. Selected gait parameters and movement patterns related to spontaneous exploration in an open field may also be affected in conditional UBC13 knockout mice. Read More

Newborn amygdala connectivity and early emerging fear.

Dev Cogn Neurosci 2019 06 12;37:100604. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR, USA. Electronic address:

Connectivity between the amygdala, insula (Amygdala-aI) and ventral medial prefrontal cortex (Amygdala-vmPFC) have been implicated in individual variability in fear and vulnerability to psychiatric disorders. However, it is currently unknown to what extent connectivity between these regions in the newborn period is relevant for the development of fear and other aspects of negative emotionality (NE), such as sadness. Here, we investigate newborn Am-Ins and Am-vmPFC resting state functional connectivity in relation to developmental trajectories of fear and sadness over the first two years of life using data from the Infant Behavior Questionnaire Revised (IBQ-R) and Early Childhood Behavior Questionnaire (ECBQ) (N=62).

Psychological Distress, Self-Beliefs, and Risk of Cognitive Impairment and Dementia.

J Alzheimers Dis 2018 ;65(3):1041-1050

Florida State University College of Medicine, Tallahassee, FL, USA.

Depressive symptoms and a history of mental disorders are associated with increased risk for dementia. Less is known about whether other aspects of psychological distress and negative self-beliefs also increase risk. The purpose of this research is to examine 1) whether eight aspects of psychological distress and self-beliefs (anxiety, negative affect, hostility, anger-in, anger-out, hopelessness, pessimism, perceived constraints) are associated with risk of incident dementia and cognitive impairment not dementia (CIND), 2) whether the associations are independent of depressive symptoms and history of a mental health diagnosis, and 3) whether the associations are also independent of behavioral, clinical, and genetic risk factors.
