Order of items within associations
Publication date: December 2017 Source:Journal of Memory and Language, Volume 97 Author(s): Kenichi Kato, Jeremy B. Caplan Association-memory is a major focus of verbal memory research. However, experimental paradigms have only occasionally tested memory for the order of the constituent items (AB versus BA). Published models of association-memory, implicitly, make clear assumptions about whether associations are learned without order (e.g., convolution-based models) or with unambiguous order (e.g., matrix models). Seeking empirical data to test these assumptions, participants studied lists of word-pairs, and were tested with cued recall, associative recognition and constituent-order recognition. Order-recognition was well above chance, challenging strict convolution-based models, but only moderately coupled with association-memory. Convolution models are thus insufficient, needing an additional mechanism to infer constituent order, in a manner that is moderately correlated with association-memory. Current matrix models provide order, but over-predict the coupling of order- and association-memory. In a simulation, when we allowed for order to be wrongly encoded for some proportion of pairs, order-recognition could be decoupled from cued recall. This led to the prediction that participants should persist with their incorrect order judgement between initial and final order-recognition, but this was not supported by the data. These findings demand that current models be amended,...

ConclusionsA MEL‐A2 with novel composition and surface activities was efficiently produced from a novel MEL producer. This is the first report on production of MEL‐A2 as the major product and from soybean oil. The biosurfactant has potential application as a wetting agent and oil‐in‐water emulsifier. Significance and Impact of the StudyDiscovery of novel structures and novel strains is valuable for further commercial development and application of MELs. Sporisorium sp. aff. sorghi SAM20 can be considered as a potential candidate for commercial production of biosurfactants.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

This article reveals the differential regulation of VieA in Vibrio cholerae O1 biotypes. Expression of VieA is repressed by the nucleoid‐associated protein H‐NS and the LysR‐type regulator LeuO in classical biotype V. cholerae, and by H‐NS and the quorum sensing regulator HapR in the El Tor biotype.
We describe approaches for back‐calculating model parameter estimates and their standard errors from available summary statistics with various techniques, including approximate Bayesian computation. We propose to use a quadratic approximation to the log‐likelihood for each historical trial based on 2 independent terms for the log mean rate and the log of the dispersion parameter. A Bayesian hierarchical meta‐analysis model then provides the posterior predictive distribution for these parameters. Simulations show this approach with back‐calculated parameter estimates results in very similar inference as using parame...
