Phonological awareness (PA), rapid automatised naming (RAN) and working memory (WM) are considered to be the most important factors supporting reading development. However, their relative importance varies across orthographies and age. The goal of this study was to examine reading predictors in Croatian, a language with highly transparent orthography, after three years of formal reading instruction. The study included 80 participants (mean age: 10.07 years). Reading rate and accuracy were measur...
This paper includes a review of moral neuroscience research with an emphasis on moral reasoning and decision-making. The first part of the paper includes an overview of theoretical approaches and constructs which elaborate the primary role of cognitive or emotional processes in moral reasoning. The second part of the paper provides insights into neuroscience research that considers and confirms the role of both processes in moral reasoning. The main brain areas in moral reasoning are the regions...
One of the central questions in cognitive science is to understand how conceptual knowledge is represented in the human mind. The classical answer to this question is the assumption of a separate semantic module in which knowledge is stored through abstract symbolic representations. The semantic module is separate from other systems, such as modules for perception and action. In the last twenty years, an alternative approach, known as embodied or grounded cognition, has been developed and intens...

The presentstudy aimed to provide preliminary evidence forthe role of uncertainty related emotions in categorical accentuation. Participants had to estimate the length of lines varying in length, which depending on the conditions were or were not associated with categorical labels. To explore the emotional determinants of categorical accentuation we included additional label condition, in which participants were induced to feel fear (i.e. the emotion theoretically defined by the appraisal of low...

The failure to engage in responsible behaviour is related to the inability to consider future consequences of actions. An experiment was conducted to examine whether increasing the vividness of the future self affects adherence and endorsement of COVID-19 safety measures. A total of 184 participants were randomly assigned to 3 groups. Depending on the experimental condition, they were tasked with writing a letter to other people (their friend), a proximal future self, and a distant future self. ...

Comprehension of abstract concepts presents an important challenge for a theoretical framework of grounded cognition. One possibility is that abstract concepts are grounded in affective states. In this work, we examined the hypothesis that abstract mathematical concept of parity (even-odd) is associated with positive and negative hedonic tone. In the first experiment, participants performed parity judgment task. Stimuli were whole numbers in the range between -9 to 9 excluding -5, 0 and 5. Resul...

The current guidelines for improving the care of people with type 2 diabetes (diabetes mellitus) suggest that doctors should also inform patients about the necessity of achieving health-related diabetes goals. A patient´s ability to successfully achieve health-related goals and treatment recommendations could improve their health and decrease the risk of diabetes-related complications. The present study aims to explore if the selected goal/recommendation characteristics (motivation, self-efficac...

Environmental sensitivity refers to how readily one registers and how deeply one processes information from the environment. Individual differences in environmental sensitivity determine an individual’s reactions to positive and negative environmental influences. The role of environmental sensitivity in children’s development has been underresearched, in large part because the first direct measure of children’s environmental sensitivity has only recently been developed. The aim of this study is ...
The goal of this study was to examine high school teachers’ knowledge about homosexuality and determine if there is a relationship between said knowledge, self-efficacy and the frequency in which they support homosexual students. The study was conducted online, on 267 high-school teachers. We used the Knowledge of Homosexual Orientation Scale, the Self-efficacy in Working with Homosexual Students Scale and The Supportive Behaviours towards Homosexual Students Scale. The results show that high sc...
