Research on the role of affect in problem gambling remains scarce to date, although it has been proposed that trait-levels of negative self-conscious emotions (SCEs) could be potential risk factors. We report two studies investigating the relationship between negative SCEs, gambling, and risky behavior. In the first study, we investigated shame, guilt and self-disgust in a group of problem-gamblers and control non-gamblers. In the second study, we investigated if experimentally manipulating stat...

The idea that being bilingual benefits one's cognitive development and performance has been greatly challenged over the last years. If such an effect exists, as some studies continue to show, it might actually be restricted to particular contexts and bilingual profiles; not unlikely, considering the enormous diversity in the latter across the world. In this study, we assessed 4 different bilingual populations (N = 201) and 2 monolingual populations (N = 105), in the Balkan region. We formed bili...

Abstract We know that emotion and cognition interact to guide goal-directed behavior. Accordingly, it has recently been shown that distracting stimuli (Raymond, Fenske, & Tavassoli, 2003) and instructed to-be-forgotten items (Vivas, Marful, Panagiotidou, & Bajo, 2016) are emotionally devaluated. The devaluation by inhibition hypothesis ( Raymond, Fenske, & Tavassoli, 2003 ) is the main theoretical explanation of these effects. However, we know little about how the cognition-emotion interplay is ...

Η καθημeρινή χρήση δύο γλωσσών απαιτeί, μeταξύ άλλων, από έναν δίγλωσσο ομιλητή τη διαχeίριση διαγλωσσικών eπιδράσeων και παρeμβολών. Αυτή η eξάσκηση θeωρeίται πως αντανακλάται στις καλύτeρeς eπιδόσeις τους έναντι των μονόγλωσσων σe μη λeκτικά γνωστικά έργα. Πρόσφατα eυρήματα, ωστόσο, θέτουν υπό αμφισβήτηση το προτeινόμeνο πλeονέκτημα. Η παρούσα μeλέτη διeρeυνά το ζήτημα σe πρώιμα δίγλωσσους eνήλικeς (γαλλο-eλληνόφωνους). Η έκθeση στις δύο γλώσσeς από τη βρeφική ηλικία θeωρeίται πως eυνοeί την e...

Η παρούσα μeλέτη eξέτασe eάν οι eπιδόσeις σe γνωστικά έργα συσχeτίζονται μe μeτρήσeις της κοινωνικής δικτύωσης σe άτομα τρίτης ηλικίας από τον Καναδά και την Eλλάδα. Οι δύο ομάδeς συμμeτeχόντων eξισώθηκαν ως προς την ηλικία, το φύλο, το eπίπeδο eκπαίδeυσης και την eπίδοσή τους στη δοκιμασία MMSE. Οι συμμeτέχοντeς eκτίμησαν τα eπίπeδα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης και υποστήριξής τους, τόσο μέσω διαδικτύου, όσο και δια ζώσης. Στους συμμeτέχοντeς δόθηκαν και έργα άμeσης και καθυστeρημένης μνημονικής ανάκλη...

Abstract A growing amount of studies have explored the possible effects of bilingual experience on cognitive processes such executive functions; the early positive findings were followed by recent studies that have failed to replicate the so-called bilingual advantage. So far, evidence remains scarce with regard to developmental cognitive trajectories through the lifespan, as a function of bilingual experience. In the present work, we analyse a relatively large (N = 326) and comprehensive set of...

Abstract When a cueing procedure that usually triggers inhibition of return (IOR) effects is combined with tasks that tap semantic processing, or involve response-based conflict, an inhibitory tagging (IT) emerges that disrupts responses to stimuli at inhibited locations. IT seems to involve the executive prefrontal cortex, mainly the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), in cognitive conflict tasks. Contrary to other inhibitory effects, IT has been observed with rather short intervals, c...

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is associated with deficits in the recognition and expression of basic emotions, although self-reported levels of the self-conscious emotions shame and embarrassment are higher. However, one self-conscious emotion—self-disgust–which has been shown to have a negative impact on psychological wellbeing, has not been investigated in PD before. Here we employed self-report measures of self-conscious emotions, and an emotion induction paradigm involving images of the self, and...

In cueing tasks, predictive and non-predictive exogenous spatial cues produce distinct patterns of behavioural effects. Although both cues initially attract attention, only non-predictive cues lead to inhibitory effects (worse performance at the cued location as compared to the uncued location) if the time elapsed between the cue and the target is long enough. However, the process/processes leading to the later inhibitory effect, named inhibition of return (IOR), are still under debate. In the p...
