Is a picture really worth a thousand words? Evaluating contributions of fluency and analytic processing in metacognitive judgements for pictures in foreign language vocabulary learning.

Q J Exp Psychol (Hove) 2020 Feb 10;73(2):211-224. Epub 2019 Oct 10.

The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA.

Previous research shows that participants are overconfident in their ability to learn foreign language vocabulary from pictures compared with English translations. The current study explored whether this tendency is due to processing fluency or beliefs about learning. Using self-paced study of Swahili words paired with either picture cues or English translation cues, picture cues garnered higher confidence judgements but not faster study times, and this was true whether judgements of learning were made after a delay (Experiment 1) or immediately (Experiment 2).

Gender Differences in Body Evaluation: Do Men Show More Self-Serving Double Standards Than Women?

Front Psychol 2019 12;10:544. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, Institute of Psychology, Osnabrück University, Osnabrück, Germany.

Generally speaking, compared to women, men are less dissatisfied with their own body and consider themselves to be better-looking and less overweight. So far, however, it is unclear whether these divergent body ratings arise from the application of double standards. With the present study, we examined whether men apply different standards to their own body than to other men's bodies and whether they differ from women in this regard. Read More

Which variables should be controlled for to investigate picture naming in adults? A Bayesian meta-analysis.

Behav Res Methods 2019 12;51(6):2533-2545

Université de Bourgogne, CNRS, Franche-Comté, France.

Selecting items for designing psycholinguistic experiments can be a very hard and time-consuming process, because of the large number of variables that need to be controlled for. This is clearly the case for picture-naming experiments because, thanks to the collection of psycholinguistic norms on both pictures and their names, a large number of factors that affect naming speed and/or accuracy have been found. In the present study, a Bayesian meta-analysis was performed to determine the extent to which the variables that have generally been considered by researchers as important to control for are indeed worth taking into account.

Does "a picture is worth 1000 words" apply to iconic Chinese words? Relationship of Chinese words and pictures.

Sci Rep 2018 05 29;8(1):8289. Epub 2018 May 29.

Department of Psychology, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.

The meaning of a picture can be extracted rapidly, but the form-to-meaning relationship is less obvious for printed words. In contrast to English words that follow grapheme-to-phoneme correspondence rule, the iconic nature of Chinese words might predispose them to activate their semantic representations more directly from their orthographies. By using the paradigm of repetition blindness (RB) that taps into the early level of word processing, we examined whether Chinese words activate their semantic representations as directly as pictures do.

Worth a thousand words? Visual concept mapping of the quality of life of people with severe mental health problems.

Int J Methods Psychiatr Res 2018 09 25;27(3):e1721. Epub 2018 May 25.

Tranzo Scientific Centre for Care and Welfare, Tilburg University, Tilburg, the Netherlands.

Objectives: Conventional approaches to quality of life (QoL) measurement rely heavily on verbal, language-based communication. They require respondents to have significant cognitive and verbal ability, making them potentially unsuitable for people with severe mental health problems. To facilitate an alternative approach to QoL assessment, the current study aims to develop an alternative, visual representation of QoL for people with severe mental health problems. Read More

When a word is worth a thousand pictures: Language shapes perceptual memory for emotion.

J Exp Psychol Gen 2018 01;147(1):62-73

Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Across 3 studies we show that emotion words support the acquisition of conceptual knowledge for emotional facial actions that then biases subsequent perceptual memory for later emotional facial actions. In all studies, participants first associated emotional facial actions with a word during a learning phase or completed a control task. In a target phase, participants studied slightly different category exemplars. Read More

What's Worth Talking About? Information Theory Reveals How Children Balance Informativeness and Ease of Production.

Psychol Sci 2017 Jul 9;28(7):954-966. Epub 2017 Jun 9.

3 Department of Psychology, University of Sheffield.

Of all the things a person could say in a given situation, what determines what is worth saying? Greenfield's principle of informativeness states that right from the onset of language, humans selectively comment on whatever they find unexpected. In this article, we quantify this tendency using information-theoretic measures and report on a study in which we tested the counterintuitive prediction that children will produce words that have a low frequency given the context, because these will be most informative. Using corpora of child-directed speech, we identified adjectives that varied in how informative (i. Read More

The effects of emotion on younger and older adults' monitoring of learning.

Neuropsychol Dev Cogn B Aging Neuropsychol Cogn 2017 Sep 27;24(5):555-574. Epub 2016 Sep 27.

d Davis School of Gerontology , University of Southern California , Los Angeles , CA , USA.

Age-related differences in memory monitoring appear when people learn emotional words. Namely, younger adults' judgments of learning (JOLs) are higher for positive than neutral words, whereas older adults' JOLs do not discriminate between positive versus neutral words. In two experiments, we evaluated whether this age-related difference extends to learning positive versus neutral pictures. Read More

Picture yourself: Self-focus and the endowment effect in preschool children.

Cognition 2016 07 29;152:70-77. Epub 2016 Mar 29.

Department of Developmental and Comparative Psychology, Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany.

When an object comes into possession, the owner will typically think that it is worth more than it did before they owned the item in a bias known as the endowment effect. This bias is particularly robust in Western societies with independent self-construals, but has not been observed in children below 5-6years of age. In three studies, we investigated whether endowment effect can be induced in younger children by focusing their attention on themselves. Read More
