Does attention capacity correlate with the effects of chord function on phoneme monitoring?

Atalay, Nart Bedin
Mısırlısoy, Mine
The present study assessed the relationship between attention capacity and effects of chord function on phoneme monitoring. Attention capacity was measured with performance on Stroop task and choice reaction time task. The results showed a significant correlation between Stroop performance and chord function effects on phoneme monitoring, in that, participants with high Stroop performance were better at blocking the interference of chordal processing on their attention capacity. In addition, participants with high focused attentional processing capacity discriminated target syllables faster, since choice reaction time score positively correlated with average correct reaction time for both "di" and "du".

Functions of autobiographical memory during mother-adolescent reminiscing and their relation to emotion regulation strategies
Elibol Pekaslan, Nur; Şahin Acar, Başak; Department of Psychology (2019)
The aim of the current study was to examine the functions of autobiographical memory (AM) during mother-adolescent reminiscing, and to investigate dyadic relationships between the functions and emotion regulation (ER) strategies with a mixed method. For the qualitative part, content analysis revealed that Self, Social, and Directive functions occurred as the main themes, and each function also included ER themes. For the quantitative part, the first aim was to examine the differences in the frequencies rega...
Is spatial uncertainty necessary for the context specific proportion congruency effect?
Bozkurt, Özge; Mısırlısoy, Mine; Department of Psychology (2019)
Cognitive control is generally measured with the Stroop effect which is signified by slow responses in the incongruent (the word and color mismatch) items. The magnitude of the Stroop effect is modulated by experimental manipulations, for instance it is reduced by presenting items in mostly incongruent contexts as compared to mostly congruent contexts. The difference between the Stroop effects observed in these contexts is called the context specific proportion congruency (CSPC) effect. A large number of CS...
Effects of Graph Type in the Comprehension of Cyclic Events
Alacam, Ozge; Hohenberger, Annette Edeltraud; Çağıltay, Kürşat (2010-08-11)
This study presents an analysis of the effect of different graph types on the comprehension of cyclic events. The results indicated that although round and linear graph designs are informationally equivalent, the round graphs are computationally better suited than linear graphs for the interpretation of cyclic concepts.
An investigation of incidental vocabulary acquisition in relation to learner proficiency level and word frequency
Tekmen, E. Anne Ferrell; Daloğlu, Ayşegül (Wiley, 2006-06-01)
This study examined the relationship between learners' incidental vocabulary acquisition and their level of proficiency, and between acquisition and word frequency in a text. Participants were Turkish learners of English at three proficiency levels. One reading text and four vocabulary tests were administered over a two-week period. Analyses of the data revealed that lexical gains from reading were significant for each group (p < .05). The higher proficiency groups were able to acquire more words than lower...
The Relationship between Source Memory and Linguistic Encoding of Source: A Study of 3-6 year-olds
Ogel-Balaban, Hale; Aksu-Koc, Ayhan; Alp, I. Ercan (2012-12-01)
This study aimed to explore whether the development of source memory is related to the use of linguistic markers of evidentiality. Eighty-seven 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-year-old Turkish-speaking monolingual children participated in two source memory tasks: (1) Mode of Knowledge Acquisition Task and (2) Source Identification Task, and three language tasks (1) Direct Experience Task, (2) Inference Task and (3) Reportative Task. Results of the source memory tasks revealed lower performance for 3-year-old children com...
