    Beliefs about the ability to control specific emotions

    Tony Gutentag, Elise K Kalokerinos, Maya Tamir
    Abstract

    People hold divergent beliefs regarding the controllability of their emotions. These beliefs can refer to emotion, in general, or to a particular emotion. But are beliefs about particular emotions distinct and emotion-specific or do they capture one general construct? To address this question, in this investigation, we tested the emotion-specificity of such beliefs. In

    Beliefs about human nature moderate the association between religious fundamentalism and hate: The case of Muslims in Indonesia

    Idhamsyah Eka Putra, Ali Mashuri, Yuni Nurhamida, Eran Halperin
    Abstract

    The paper addresses the issue of the paradoxical impact on religious fundamentalism within intergroup relations. In particular, the present study tested how the presence of beliefs of human nature as good (vs. evil) could serve as a moderating factor on the association between religious fundamentalism and outgroup hate. The results from two correlational studies with

    Everyday Cognitive Control and Emotion Dysregulation in Young Adults with and Without ADHD: An Ecological Momentary Assessment Study

    Abstract

    Background: Emotion dysregulation (ED) is a significant characteristic of ADHD. Cognitive control (CC) mechanisms have been suggested to contribute to ED, but little is known about how their manifestation in daily life is associated with ED processes in ADHD. Here, we examined the contribution of two CC components - inhibitory control (IC) and working memory (WM) - as

    Adaptive visual working memory: Expecting a delayed estimation task enhances visual working memory precision

    Abstract

    Two of the dominating tasks in the visual working memory (VWM) literature are the Delayed Estimation (DE) task and the Change Detection (CD) task. However, there are no studies that directly compared how participants’ expectation to be tested in these tasks impacts memory formation. Here, three experiments interspersed DE and CD trials with identical displays until the

    Common model of stress, anxiety, and depressive symptoms in pregnant women from seven high-income western countries at the COVID-19 pandemic onset

    Abstract

    Objective

    Increases in stress, anxiety, and depression among women pregnant during the COVID-19 pandemic have been reported internationally. Yet rigorous comparison of the prevalence of maternal mental health problems across countries is lacking. Moreover, whether stress is a common predictor of maternal mental health during the pandemic across countries is unknown.

    Pathological slow-wave activity and impaired working memory binding in post-traumatic amnesia

    Emma-Jane Mallas, Nikos Gorgoraptis, Sophie Dautricourt, Yoni Pertzov, Gregory Scott, David J Sharp
    Abstract

    Associative binding is key to normal memory function and is transiently disrupted during periods of post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Electrophysiological abnormalities including low-frequency activity are common following TBI. Here, we investigate associative memory binding during PTA and test the hypothesis that misbinding is caused

    Local detour centrality: a novel local centrality measure for weighted networks

    Haim Cohen, Yinon Nachshon, Paz M Naim, Jürgen Jost, Emil Saucan, Anat Maril
    Abstract

    Centrality, in some sense, captures the extent to which a vertex controls the flow of information in a network. Here, we propose Local Detour Centrality as a novel centrality-based betweenness measure that captures the extent to which a vertex shortens paths between neighboring vertices as compared to alternative paths. After presenting our measure, we demonstrate

    Putting Effort into Emotion Regulation: Manipulating Desirability and Motivational Strength

    Abstract

    Although people often want to regulate their emotions, they are sometimes reluctant to invest the necessary effort in doing so. We propose that people could be motivated to invest effort in emotion regulation, by rendering the target emotional state more desirable. Rendering an emotion goal more desirable can motivate people to invest effort in emotion regulation

    Mechanisms underlying interoceptive exposure: belief disconfirmation or extinction? A preliminary study

    Abstract

    Interoceptive exposure, or exposure to one’s feared physical sensations, has been shown to be an important technique in cognitive behavioral therapies for anxiety disorders and related constructs, such as anxiety sensitivity (AS). The current study sought to further clarify the underlying cognitive-behavioral mechanisms of interoceptive exposure in a lab-based, analog

    The general psychopathology factor from early to middle childhood: Longitudinal genetic and risk analyses

    Abstract

    Accumulating research suggests the structure of psychopathology is best represented by continuous higher-order dimensions, including a general dimension, “p,” and more specific dimensions, for example, externalizing and internalizing factors. Here, we aimed to (a) replicate p in early childhood, (b) examine stability and change of genetic and environmental influences
