Evidence for perceptual defense using a lexical decision task

, : Evidence for perceptual defense using a lexical decision task. Perceptual and Motor Skills 50(1): 195-198

In a tachistoscopic experiment employing a lexical-decision task, it was demonstrated that emotional ("taboo") words are not responded to as quickly or as accurately as non-emotional ("neutral") words by 32 college students. The results suggest evidence for "perceptual defense" uncontaminated by response bias.

The data supporting the immediate use of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) post implantation of drug-eluting stents (DESs) is irrefutable. DAPT in this early period is necessary to prevent stent thrombosis during endothelialization of the stent, a...

Chromosomes from cultured fibroblasts of 4 cottontail species (S. audubonii, 2n = 42; S. idahoensis, 2n = 44; S. nuttallii, 2n = 42; and S. palustris, 2n = 38) were analyzed using G- and C-banding techniques. The evolutionary restructuring of the...
