Everything Adaptive Learning and Forgetting in an Unconventional Experimental Routine fascinator 709f869f7fa7951d7da053fba4af8e3b 2018-02-16T03:26:39Z ["Learning and forgetting were assessed concurrently in two experiments that involved the same unconventional routine.

Here, participants attended to different objects presented at different quadrants on a screen. In a later test phase, a single object was presented in all four quadrants, and participants verbally reported whether the object was new or previously seen (item recognition), and if it was previously seen, they indicated the original screen location (source memory recollection). We combined this test with eye-tracking to determine whether attention to an object during encoding would correlate with later recognition of the object and recall of its source location, and whether eye movements at test can reveal attention to the correct source location in the absence of correct explicit verbal responses. Number of fixations on an object during encoding was not related to later object recognition or source recollection. However, when participants correctly recognized an object but incorrectly indicated the source information, there were significantly more fixations on the correct source location than on incorrect, non-selected locations. Also, when participants correctly recognized an object but said they could not recall the source information, there were significantly more fixations on the correct source location. These findings provide evidence that accurate source information can be expressed through gaze direction even when explicit recollection or verbal expression of that information is incorrect or has failed. Format: Data files are accessible with Excel and EPrime proprietary software. Methods: Materials A total of 96 colored images of common objects were employed. The images were developed and described by Cansino [12]. From the pool of images, a set of 64 images were selected to be displayed during the encoding phase. During the retrieval phase, 32 images from the encoding phase were used again, along with 32 new images. The stimuli were presented on the screen of a laptop computer (1366 × 768 pixels; 60 Hz) using e-Prime software version 2.0. A Tobii Technology X2-30 eye tracker was positioned below the screen to track eye movements. The subjects were seated so that their eyes were 50-80 cm from the screen. Procedure The experiment was conducted in a single session that consisted of an encoding phase, a retention interval, and a retrieval test phase. Eye movements were tracked during the encoding phase and the test phase. Before beginning the study, each subject read and signed an informed consent form and filled out a computerized demographic questionnaire. Participants started the experiment by calibrating their eyes to the eye-tracking software. Once the calibrations were satisfactory, the encoding phase began, which lasted for approximately 6 minutes. The participants were presented with an illustrative encoding slide and instructed to study the objects that appeared on screen for a later test. After the illustration slide was shown, a series of 32 additional slides was presented. Each encoding slide was divided into four quadrants by a red cross. In two of the quadrants randomly selected pairs of objects were presented. Participants were not instructed to remember image locations or image pairings. Unknown to them, one of the objects from each slide would be part of the retrieval test (the target) and the other would not be seen again (the distractor). Quadrants that contained stimuli were always diagonally opposed: either top left and bottom right, or top right and bottom left (Fig 1, top panel). These screen positions, as well as the position of the object that would be presented again later, were counterbalanced across the session and presented in individually randomized orders. Before each new slide was displayed, the participants were presented with a fixation cross for 1000 ms to center their focus. Each slide was presented for 3000 ms, after which the images and the quadrants disappeared and were replaced with the message “press space to continue”. By pressing spacebar, the participant could then choose when they would see the next slide. On average, participants took 1439 ms to continue onto the next slide. Examples of stimuli layout. In the encoding phase (top panel), a red cross divided the screen into quadrants and the stimuli were presented randomly in opposite quadrants. In the test phase (lower panel), a red cross divided the screen into quadrants and the stimuli were presented in all four quadrants. Immediately after the encoding phase there was a ten minute retention interval. During this interval participants completed a distractor task that involved solving simple arithmetic problems. The participants were asked to select the correct count-down series by threes out of 3 options. They had to do this for 10 different numbers ranging from 17-32. For the test phase, participants were presented with test screens divided into four quadrants by a red cross. The same object was displayed in each quadrant (Fig 1, bottom panel). The subjects were first presented with a sequence of three illustrative test trials and advised that after viewing the objects in each trial they would be asked to either point with their hand to the quadrant that they had previously seen the image in, say “new” if they had not seen the image previously, or say “don’t know where” if they had seen the image before but could not recall where its previous location was. For each test trial, a fixation cross in the center of the screen appeared for 1000 ms before each slide was presented to enable the participant to center their focus. The objects appeared for 3000 ms, then they were removed while the red dividing cross remained. At that point, the verbal responses from the subject were collected. These verbal reports were recorded by the experimenter. The subjects were presented with 64 test slides, 32 of which contained objects that were previously shown in the encoding phase and the other 32 contained new objects. The sequence of new images and previously presented images in the test screens was individually randomized. Coding of responses The third author noted participants’ response as they were being given and later coded these responses according to the following guidelines: Correct item recognition – previously seen objects which were not labelled as new by the participant; Correct source location – previously seen objects for which the participant had pointed to the correct quadrant; Incorrect source location – previously seen objects for which the participant had pointed to an incorrect quadrant; Don’t know where – previously seen objects which were recognized but of which the participant said not to know the location; Incorrect item recognition – previously seen objects which were labelled as new by the participant. New objects could also be correctly identified as new or falsely considered to have been seen before. These were not analyzed further.

Here, participants attended to different objects presented at different quadrants on a screen. In a later test phase, a single object was presented in all four quadrants, and participants verbally reported whether the object was new or previously seen (item recognition), and if it was previously seen, they indicated the original screen location (source memory recollection). We combined this test with eye-tracking to determine whether attention to an object during encoding would correlate with later recognition of the object and recall of its source location, and whether eye movements at test can reveal attention to the correct source location in the absence of correct explicit verbal responses. Number of fixations on an object during encoding was not related to later object recognition or source recollection. However, when participants correctly recognized an object but incorrectly indicated the source information, there were significantly more fixations on the correct source location than on incorrect, non-selected locations. Also, when participants correctly recognized an object but said they could not recall the source information, there were significantly more fixations on the correct source location. These findings provide evidence that accurate source information can be expressed through gaze direction even when explicit recollection or verbal expression of that information is incorrect or has failed. Format: Data files are accessible with Excel and EPrime proprietary software. Methods: Materials A total of 96 colored images of common objects were employed. The images were developed and described by Cansino [12]. From the pool of images, a set of 64 images were selected to be displayed during the encoding phase. During the retrieval phase, 32 images from the encoding phase were used again, along with 32 new images. The stimuli were presented on the screen of a laptop computer (1366 × 768 pixels; 60 Hz) using e-Prime software version 2.0. A Tobii Technology X2-30 eye tracker was positioned below the screen to track eye movements. The subjects were seated so that their eyes were 50-80 cm from the screen. Procedure The experiment was conducted in a single session that consisted of an encoding phase, a retention interval, and a retrieval test phase. Eye movements were tracked during the encoding phase and the test phase.

Of these participants, 68.9% were classified as non-problematic users, 24.4% as problematic users, and 6.7% as addictive Internet users. The results indicated that among adolescents the main contributing factors to Internet addiction (IA) were: high use of discussion forums, high rumination levels, and low levels of self-care. For adults, IA was mainly predicted by: engagement in online video gaming and sexual activity, low email use, as well as high anxiety and high avoidant coping. Furthermore, problematic adult Internet users scored higher on emotion and avoidance coping responses while problematic adolescent Internet users scored higher on rumination and lower on self-care. Avoidance coping responses mediated the relationship between psychological distress and Internet addiction.", "This data set covers 449 participants aged from 16 to 71 years of age from a wide range of English speaking Internet forums including social media, and self-help groups.

Currently, quantitative and statistical definition is lacking for the vocalisations of many dasyurids, an important group of small to medium-sized marsupials from Australasia that includes the eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus), a species of conservation concern. Beyond generating a better understanding of this species' social interactions, determining an acoustic repertoire will further improve detection rates and inference of vocalisations gathered by automated bioacoustic recorders. Hence, this study investigated eastern quoll vocalisations using objective signal processing techniques to quantitatively analyse spectrograms recorded from 15 different individuals. Recordings were collected from Secret Creek Sanctuary in Lithgow in conjunction with observations of the behaviours associated with each vocalisation to develop an acoustic-based behavioural repertoire for the species. Vocalisation measures were extracted using narrowband spectrograms (FFT method, window length 0.05 sec, dynamic range = 70 dB, time-steps = 1,000, frequency steps = 250, Gaussian window shape) produced in the program PRAAT (5.3.84 DSP Package). Source-related parameters using an autocorrelation method were used to detect the fundamental frequency (F0) contour from which measures of Duration, Median F0, Mean F0, Minimum F0, Maximum F0, Range of F0, Standard deviation of F0, Noise-to-Harmonics ratio, Jitter and Shimmer were extracted. Additionally intensity contours were extracted for each call to measure the Minimum amplitude, Maximum amplitude and Amplitude variation. Analysis of recordings produced a putative classification of five vocalisation types: Bark, Growl, Hiss, Cp-cp, and Chuck. These were most frequently observed during agonistic encounters between conspecifics, most likely as a graded sequence from Hisses occurring in a warning context through to Growls and finally Barks being given prior to, or during, physical confrontations between individuals. Quantitative and statistical methods were used to objectively establish the accuracy of these five putative call types. A multinomial logistic regression indicated a 97.27% correlation with the perceptual classification, demonstrating support for the five different vocalisation types. This putative classification was further supported by hierarchical cluster analysis and silhouette information that determined the optimal number of clusters to be five. Minor disparity between the objective and perceptual classifications was potentially the result of gradation between vocalisations, or subtle differences present within vocalisations not discernible to the human ear. The implication of these different vocalisations and their given context is discussed in relation to the ecology of the species and the potential application of passive acoustic monitoring techniques.", "Defining an acoustic repertoire is essential to understanding vocal signalling and communicative interactions within a species.
