  1. Observer age and the social transmission of attractiveness in humans: Younger women are more influenced by the choices of popular others than older women.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):397 (2015) PMID 25314951

    Being paired with an attractive partner increases perceptual judgements of attractiveness in humans. We tested experimentally for prestige bias, whereby individuals follow the choices of prestigious others. Women rated the attractiveness of photographs of target males which were paired with eith...
  2. The own-age face recognition bias is task dependent.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):446 (2015) PMID 25491773

    The own-age bias (OAB) in face recognition (more accurate recognition of own-age than other-age faces) is robust among young adults but not older adults. We investigated the OAB under two different task conditions. In Experiment 1 young and older adults (who reported more recent experience with ...
  3. Dissociation of rapid response learning and facilitation in perceptual and conceptual networks of person recognition.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):375 (2015) PMID 25291047

    Repetition priming is a prominent example of non-declarative memory, and it increases the accuracy and speed of responses to repeatedly processed stimuli. Major long-hold memory theories posit that repetition priming results from facilitation within perceptual and conceptual networks for stimulu...
  4. Defining greed.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):505 (2015) PMID 25315060

    Although greed is both hailed as the motor of economic growth and blamed as the cause of economic crises, very little is known about its psychological underpinnings. Five studies explored lay conceptualizations of greed among US and Dutch participants using a prototype analysis. Study 1 identifi...
  5. Colour fluctuations in grapheme-colour synaesthesia: The effect of clinical and non-clinical mood changes.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):487 (2015) PMID 25413977

    Synaesthesia is a condition that gives rise to unusual secondary sensations (e.g., colours are perceived when listening to music). These unusual sensations tend to be reported as being stable throughout adulthood (e.g., Simner & Logie, 2007, Neurocase, 13, 358) and the consistency of these exper...
  6. Perceived shared understanding in teams: The motivational effect of being 'on the same page'.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):468 (2015) PMID 25278276

    This study examines the role of perceived shared understanding with regard to team performance, taking into account the motivational mechanisms (i.e., group potency and team effort) involved in this relationship and the moderating role of task routineness. Using a multisource approach and a team...
  7. Impact of average household income and damage exposure on post-earthquake distress and functioning: A community study following the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):526 (2015) PMID 25267100

    Post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety symptoms are common outcomes following earthquakes, and may persist for months and years. This study systematically examined the impact of neighbourhood damage exposure and average household income on psychological distress and functioning in 600 res...
  8. Dissociation between the behavioural and electrophysiological effects of the face and body composite illusions.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):414 (2015) PMID 25330089

    Several studies have reported similarities between perceptual processes underlying face and body perception, particularly emphasizing the importance of configural processes. Differences between the perception of faces and the perception of bodies were observed by means of a manipulation targetin...
  9. Unfamiliar face matching: Pairs out-perform individuals and provide a route to training.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(3):433 (2015) PMID 25393594

    Matching unfamiliar faces is known to be difficult. Here, we ask whether performance can be improved by asking viewers to work in pairs, a manipulation known to increase accuracy for low-level visual discrimination tasks. Across four experiments we consistently find that face matching accuracy i...
  10. Examining the relationships between self-efficacy, task-relevant attentional control , and task performance: Evidence from event-related brain potentials.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(2):253 (2015) PMID 25220736

    Self-efficacy (SE) is a modifiable psychosocial factor related to individuals' beliefs in their capabilities to successfully complete courses of action and has been shown to be positively associated with task performance. The authors hypothesized that one means through which SE is related with i...
