Keeping it real: Looking beyond capacity limits in visual cognition.

Atten Percept Psychophys 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity, Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Research within visual cognition has made tremendous strides in uncovering the basic operating characteristics of the visual system by reducing the complexity of natural vision to artificial but well-controlled experimental tasks and stimuli. This reductionist approach has for example been used to assess the basic limitations of visual attention, visual working memory (VWM) capacity, and the fidelity of visual long-term memory (VLTM). The assessment of these limits is usually made in a pure sense, irrespective of goals, actions, and priors. Read More

Int J Health Serv 2021 Mar 18:207314211002785. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Bronfman Business Library, York University, Toronto, Canada.

This rapid scoping review of existing evidence and research gaps addressed the following question: what research evidence exists and what are the research gaps at global, regional, and national levels on interventions to protect jobs, small- and medium-sized enterprises, and formal/informal sector workers in socioeconomic response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic? The results are based on 79 publications deemed eligible for inclusion after the screening and prioritizing of 1,658 records. The findings are organized according to the 3 main categories of socioeconomic interventions-protecting jobs, enterprises, and workers-although the 3 are intertwined. Most results were derived from global-level gray literature with recommendations for interventions and implicit links to the sustainable development goals. Read More

Identifying Ingredient Substitutions Using a Knowledge Graph of Food.

Front Artif Intell 2020 25;3:621766. Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, United States.

People can affect change in their eating patterns by substituting ingredients in recipes. Such substitutions may be motivated by specific goals, like modifying the intake of a specific nutrient or avoiding a particular category of ingredients. Determining how to modify a recipe can be difficult because people need to 1) identify which ingredients can act as valid replacements for the original and 2) figure out whether the substitution is "good" for their particular context, which may consider factors such as allergies, nutritional contents of individual ingredients, and other dietary restrictions.

When your goals inspire my goals: the role of effort, personal value, and inference in goal contagion.

Compr Results Soc Psychol 2020 Jun 8;4(1):78-108. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Institute of Psychology, University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Just observing other people can influence what we do. Under certain conditions, it inspires us to strive for the same goal as the other person. Such goal contagion occurs, because one first automatically infers the goal and then adopts it for oneself. Read More

Heliyon 2021 Feb 17;7(2):e06268. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

CIMFAV-Ingemat, Facultad de Ingeniería, Universidad de Valparaíso, Valparaíso, Chile.

In recent years, advances in science, technology, and the way in which we view our world have led to an increasingly broad use of the term "intelligence". As we learn more about biological systems, we find more and more examples of complex and precise adaptive behavior in animals and plants. Similarly, as we build more complex computational systems, we recognize the emergence of highly sophisticated structures capable of solving increasingly complex problems. Read More

"Know your worth and play it safe:" messages to daughters from Mexican-origin mothers in conversations about dating and romantic relationships.

Cult Health Sex 2021 Mar 4:1-15. Epub 2021 Mar 4.

Chicana and Chicano Studies Department, University of California, Santa Barbara, California, USA.

This study aims to enhance understanding of mother-daughter communication about dating and romantic relationships. We explored how Mexican-origin, mostly immigrant mothers talked about these topics with their daughters (ages 13 to 16 years) using videotaped observational methods. Themes drawn from the maternal messages contained in the conversations of 132 mother-daughter dyads show that mothers promote positive decision-making among their daughters, advising them to take their time, choose partners wisely, insist on respect from boys, maintain autonomy in relationships, pursue education goals, and develop a sense of self-worth.

Describing Overarching Curricular Goals for Individualized Education.

Teach Learn Med 2020 Dec 23:1-10. Epub 2020 Dec 23.

Department of Pediatrics, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

The phenomenon of individualized education, an essential component of competency-based medical education, addresses individual learner needs while working toward standardized learning outcomes. One challenge with broadly implementing individualized education is the lack of a pragmatic operational definition. To formalize expectations for individualized education, the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education in 2013 began requiring six months of individualized curriculum (IC) during pediatric residency; however, there is not a national standard of formal curricular goals for the IC as an educational entity.

Maternal mortality: beyond overmedicalized solutions.

Katie R Allan

Am J Obstet Gynecol MFM 2020 02 27;2(1):100047. Epub 2019 Sep 27.

Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. Electronic address:

Maternal deaths, particularly racial disparities in maternal deaths, represent a deeper problem than their medicalized solutions reflect-one deeply rooted in the devaluation of women's well-being, institutional inequality, and racism. Most policy solutions for addressing maternal mortality involve actionable goals within the purview of healthcare providers, medical institutions, and insurance providers. Although we should continue studying the causes of maternal mortality through maternal mortality review committees, reducing racism in medicine with implicit bias training, and standardizing pregnancy care, there is a pressing need to challenge the processes and institutions that lead to health inequities.

Analysis goals, error-cost sensitivity, and analysis hacking: Essential considerations in hypothesis testing and multiple comparisons.

Sander Greenland

Paediatr Perinat Epidemiol 2021 Jan 2;35(1):8-23. Epub 2020 Dec 2.

Department of Epidemiology and Department of Statistics, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

The "replication crisis" has been attributed to perverse incentives that lead to selective reporting and misinterpretations of P-values and confidence intervals. A crude fix offered for this problem is to lower testing cut-offs (α levels), either directly or in the form of null-biased multiple comparisons procedures such as naïve Bonferroni adjustments. Methodologists and statisticians have expressed positions that range from condemning all such procedures to demanding their application in almost all analyses. Read More

Combining the theory of change and realist evaluation approaches to elicit an initial program theory of the MomConnect program in South Africa.

BMC Med Res Methodol 2020 11 26;20(1):282. Epub 2020 Nov 26.

Division of Health Systems and Public Health, Stellenbosch University, Cape Town, South Africa.

Background: One of the Sustainable Development Goals is to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030. In South Africa, the flagship National Department of Health MomConnect program was launched in 2014 to strengthen the quality of maternal and child health (MCH) services and improve mortality outcomes. MomConnect was rapidly rolled out with a limited understanding of how and why the program was expected to work even though studies had shown the effectiveness of the MomConnect program in improving the uptake of MCH services.

Implicit associations of teleology and essentialism concepts with genetics concepts among secondary school students.

PLoS One 2020 20;15(11):e0242189. Epub 2020 Nov 20.

University Teacher Training Institute (IUFE), University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

In this article, we present the development and validation of an implicit association test for measuring secondary school students' associations between genetics concepts and teleology concepts on the one hand, and between genetics concepts and essentialism concepts on the other hand. In total, 169 students from 16 school classes took part in the study, from January 2018 to May 2018. We investigated the strength of the aforementioned associations and the influence of various covariates such as gender, age, school class, or previous learning of biology on the association of teleology or essentialism concepts with genetics concepts through an analysis of covariance and a multi-level analysis.

Infants Generalize Beliefs Across Individuals.

Front Psychol 2020 22;11:547680. Epub 2020 Sep 22.

Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montréal, QC, Canada.

It has been argued that infants possess a rich, sophisticated theory of mind (ToM) that is only revealed with tasks based on spontaneous responses. A mature (ToM) implies the understanding that mental states are person specific. Previous studies on infants' understanding of motivational mental states, such as goals and preferences have revealed that, by 9 months of age, infants do not generalize these motivational mental states across agents.

Implicit Affect, Heart Rate Variability, and the Metabolic Syndrome.

Psychosom Med 2021 Jan;83(1):24-32

From the Department of Psychology (Gouin, MacNeil, Booij), Concordia University, Montreal, Canada; Department of Psychological Science (Thayer), University of California, Irvine, Irvine, California; and School of Psychology (Deschênes), University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

Objective: Greater negative affect has been associated with an increased risk of the metabolic syndrome (METs). However, all studies to date have examined this association using explicit affect measures based on subjective ratings of emotional experiences. Prior studies suggest that implicit affect, representing the automatic, prereflective appraisal process involved in conscious emotional experiences, is associated with physiological stress responses independent of explicit affect.
