Within a dyadic ambulatory assessment framework, 102 couples...

Benchmarking nonparametric Granger causality: Robustness against downsampling and influence of spectral decomposition parameters

Pagnotta, Mattia F. ; Dhamala, Mukesh ; Plomp, Gijs

In: NeuroImage, 2018, vol. 183, p. 478-494

Brain function arises from networks of distributed brain areas whose directed interactions vary at subsecond time scales. To investigate such interactions, functional directed connectivity methods based on nonparametric spectral factorization are promising tools, because they can be straightforwardly extended to the nonstationary case using wavelet transforms or multitapers on sliding time...

The role of goal cueing in kindergarteners' working memory

Fitamen, Christophe ; Blaye, Agnès ; Camos, Valérie

Goal neglect has been shown to contribute to kindergarteners’ poor executive control. Hence, presenting goal cues during a task improves children’s performance in inhibition and switching tasks. The current study aimed at extending these findings to working memory (WM) by examining the extent to which kindergarteners’ poor WM performance can result from neglecting the goal to recall...

In: Journal of Gender Studies, 2020, p. 1-14

We present a preliminary validation of a newly built questionnaire aimed at evaluating people’s openness towards the notion of non-binary gender. To explore the validity of our questionnaire, we ran a principal component analysis to evaluate the existence of three overarching dimensions (Gender Categories, Gender Fluidity, and Gender Definitions) that were at the very foundation of our...
