Caballero Meneses, Jonathan Azael; Menez Díaz, Judith Marina – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Emotional expressions have been proposed to be important for regulating social interaction as they can serve as cues for behavioral intentions. The issue has been mainly addressed analyzing the effects of facial emotional expressions in cooperation behavior, but there are contradictory results regarding the impact of emotional expressions on that…

Hohensinn, Christine; Baghaei, Purya – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
In large scale multiple-choice (MC) tests alternate forms of a test may be developed to prevent cheating by changing the order of items or by changing the position of the response options. The assumption is that since the content of the test forms are the same the order of items or the positions of the response options do not have any effect on…

Guasch, Marc; Haro, Juan; Boada, Roger – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
With the increasing refinement of language processing models and the new discoveries about which variables can modulate these processes, stimuli selection for experiments with a factorial design is becoming a tough task. Selecting sets of words that differ in one variable, while matching these same words into dozens of other confounding variables…

Cadavid, Sara; Beato, María Soledad – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
A wide array of studies have explored memory distortions with the Deese/Roediger-McDermott (DRM) paradigm, where participants study lists of words (e.g., "door," "glass," "pane," "shade," "ledge," etc.) that are associated to another nonpresented critical word (e.g., WINDOW). On a subsequent memory…

Finch, Holmes – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Multilevel models (MLMs) have proven themselves to be very useful in social science research, as data from a variety of sources is sampled such that individuals at level-1 are nested within clusters such as schools, hospitals, counseling centers, and business entities at level-2. MLMs using restricted maximum likelihood estimation (REML) provide…

Suero, Manuel; Privado, Jesús; Botella, Juan – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
A simulation study is presented to evaluate and compare three methods to estimate the variance of the estimates of the parameters d and "C" of the signal detection theory (SDT). Several methods have been proposed to calculate the variance of their estimators, "d'" and "c." Those methods have been mostly assessed by…

Martin-Fernandez, Manuel; Revuelta, Javier – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
This study compares the performance of two estimation algorithms of new usage, the Metropolis-Hastings Robins-Monro (MHRM) and the Hamiltonian MCMC (HMC), with two consolidated algorithms in the psychometric literature, the marginal likelihood via EM algorithm (MML-EM) and the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC), in the estimation of multidimensional…

Aguirre, Roberto; Santiago, Julio – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Current evidence provides support for the idea that time is mentally represented by spatial means, i.e., a left-right mental timeline. However, available studies have tested only factual events, i.e., those which have occurred in the past or can be predicted to occur in the future. In the present study we tested whether past and future potential…

Ramos, Tania; Marques, João; Garcia-Marques, Leonel – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Implicit memory reflects itself on situations in which previously acquired information is expressed, without awareness or intention. The study of implicit memory has had a profound impact on how researchers have investigated the human memory. In this paper, we review the main studies which have revealed dissociations between direct and indirect…

Jorge A. Pinto,; Vogel, Edgar H.; Núñez, Daniel E. – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
The learned predictiveness effect or LPE is the finding that when people learn that certain cues are reliable predictors of an outcome in an initial stage of training (phase 1), they exhibit a learning bias in favor of these cues in a subsequent training involving new outcomes (phase 2) despite all cues being equally reliable in phase 2. In…

Ros, Laura; Latorre, José M.; Aguilar, M. José; Ricarte, Jorge J.; Castillo, Alejandro; Catena, Andrés; Fuentes, Luis J. – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Difficulty in retrieving specific autobiographical memories is known as overgeneral autobiographical memory (OGM). OGM has been related with clinical psychopathology (e.g., depression, schizophrenia, etc.). People presenting an OGM style usually recall more repetitive summary-type memories, so-called categoric memories, (e.g., "each time I…

Saraiva, Magda; Albuquerque, Pedro B.; Arantes, Joana – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Studies on collaborative memory have revealed an interesting phenomenon called collaborative inhibition (CI) (i.e., nominal groups recall more information than collaborative groups). However, the results of studies on false memories in collaborative memory tasks are controversial. This study aimed to understand the production of false memories in…

Ferrando, Pere J.; Masip-Cabrera, Antoni; Navarro-González, David; Lorenzo-Seva, Urbano – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
The Psychometric Toolbox (PT) is a user-friendly, non-commercial package mainly intended to be used for instructional purposes in introductory courses of educational and psychological measurement, psychometrics and statistics. The PT package is organized in six separate modules or sub-programs: Data preprocessor (descriptive analyses and data…

Starzomska, Malgorzata – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
Recent years have seen an increasing interest in the cognitive approach to eating disorders, which postulates that patients selectively attend to information associated with eating, body shape, and body weight. The unreliability of self-report measures in eating disorders due to strong denial of illness gave rise to experimental studies inspired…
