Intrinsic motivation for choice varies with individual risk attitudes and the controllability of the environment

Authors: Jérôme Munuera , et al. Abstract When deciding between options that do or do not lead to future choices, humans often choose to choose. We studied choice seeking by asking subjects to first decide between a choice opportunity or performing a computer-selected action, after which they either chose freely or performed the forced action….

The impact of a rosemary containing drink on event-related potential neural markers of sustained attention

Authors: Leigh Martin Riby, et al. Abstract Background Research suggests that the ingestion or aroma of rosemary enhances cognitive ability in both rodents and humans. However, how rosemary facilitates cognition and the precise therapeutic impacts on information processing remains unclear. Hypothesis/purpose This pilot study used the temporal precision of event-related potentials (ERPs) to examine the…

Triaxial accelerometer-measured physical activity and functional behaviours among people with High Grade Glioma: The BrainWear Study

Authors: Seema Dadhania , et al. Abstract Background High-grade gliomas (HGG) account for 60–75% of all adult gliomas. The complexity of treatment, recovery and survivorship creates a need for novel monitoring approaches. Accurate assessment of physical function plays a vital role in clinical evaluation. Digital wearable tools could help us address unmet needs by offering…

Taste and pheromonal inputs govern the regulation of time investment for mating by sexual experience in male Drosophila melanogaster

Authors: Seung Gee Lee , et al. Abstract Males have finite resources to spend on reproduction. Thus, males rely on a ‘time investment strategy’ to maximize their reproductive success. For example, male Drosophila melanogaster extends their mating duration when surrounded by conditions enriched with rivals. Here we report a different form of behavioral plasticity whereby…

Examining retweeting behavior on social networking sites from the perspective of self-presentation

Authors: Juan Shi , et al. Abstract On social networking sites, people can express themselves in a variety of ways such as creating personalized profiles, commenting on some topics, sharing their experiences and thoughts. Among these technology-enabled features, retweeting other-sourced tweet is a powerful way for users to present themselves. We examine users’ retweeting behavior…
