FulcherThe recent construction of brain-wide gene expression atlases, which measure the transcriptional activity of thousands of genes in multiple anatomical locations, has made it possible to connect spatial variations in gene expression to distributed properties of connectome structure and function. These analyses have revealed that spatial patterning of gene expression and neuronal connectivity are closely linked, following broad spatial gradients that track regional variations...

Lersch, Janeen BaxterAbstractIndividuals' gender attitudes influence their behaviors, and adherence to traditional gender ideology is an important mechanism contributing to the (re)production of gender inequalities. In developed nations, the ‘gender revolution’ was accompanied by marked societal shifts towards gender-egalitarian attitudes, but these trends have recently stalled. In this paper, we re-examine the role of birth cohort and ageing in influencing gender ideology through the lens ...

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2018Source: Social Science &MedicineAuthor(s): Gretta Mohan, Anne Nolan, Seán LyonsAbstractEquity in access to healthcare services is regarded as an important policy goal in the organisation of modern healthcare systems. Physical accessibility to healthcare services is recognised as a key component of access. Older people are more frequent and intensive users of healthcare, but reduced mobility and poorer access to transport may negatively influence patterns of utilisation. We investigate the extent to which supply-side factors in primary healthcare are associated w...

Moneta, Delfina Bilello, Peter J. CloughAbstractPrevious research reported that Subclinical Narcissism (SN) may increase Mental Toughness (MT) resulting in positive outcomes such as lower psychopathy, higher school grades and lower symptoms of depression. We conducted three studies (N = 364, 240 and 144 for studies 1, 2 and 3, respectively) to test a mediation model, which suggests that SN may increase MT predicting lower Perceived Stress (PS). The p...

BeaverAbstractThere has been a body of research examining whether there is an association between birth order and personality traits. The results of these studies have been somewhat mixed, with some findings indicating an association and others reporting no association. Against this backdrop, the current study analyzed data drawn from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health to further examine the potential link between birth order and personality (N = 2,508–14,125). T...

Recent work has linked individual differences in trait selfcontrol to motivation quality, showing that higher self-control is associated with greater autonomous motivation (Converse, Juarez &Hennecke, 2018). The present investigation built on this research to test the association longitudinally in the context of long...

This study examined whether vocational exploration mediated the association between participation in extracurricular activities and career indecision among high school students. A total of 312 students were surveyed over three waves of data collection (Secondary 3 to Secondary 5). Participation in extracurricular activities (number and types), vocational exploration (self and environment), and career indecision (undecidedness, self-unclarity, and career choice unimportance) were self-reported. Results revealed that participation in a higher number of extracurricular activities predicted an increase in vocational exploratio...

We hypothesized indirect effects of over- and underchallenge on career aspirations via academic self-concept and academic trait boredom and tested our hypotheses in a sample of N = 662 Swiss eleventh grade students in the domains of German, Frenc...

More specifically, we examined individual differences in the relationship between university students' task-specific value and situational emotions and, further, whether first-year study engagement would moderate this association during the first two years of studies...

Publication date: December 2018Source: Journal of Mathematical Psychology, Volume 87Author(s): Reinhard SuckAbstractThe structure of the set of all possible rating scales is investigated. It is shown that by a natural addition of rating scales the set is a commutative semigroup with neutral element. From this operation a partial order can be defined which turns out to a lattice order. This lattice is shown to be distributive. In the next step two possibilities –closely related to the preceding development –are analyzed to endow this structure with a metric. The semigroup operation is shown to be continuous in t...
