In the stimulus response contingency manipulation (Schmidt et al., 2007) words are written in different colors, and participants respond to the color of the words. Responses are faster when words are associated with the colors compared to when they are not. The present study investigated the effects of language on stimulus response contingency learning. Turkish or English words were associated with colors, and participants responded either in Turkish or in English. Furthermore, responses to transfer stimuli, which were not associated with any color but had the same meaning in the other language, were observed. Experiment results showed that contingency effect changed according to stimulus and response language. Contingency effect was larger when the stimulus and the response were in the same language, than when they were in different languages. In addition, contingency effect was observed to be larger in the English responses than the Turkish responses. Contingency effect was not observed in transfer stimuli, however. Finally, sequential contingency effect was observed only in the condition in which the response language was English and the stimulus language was Turkish.


Dil değişimlemesinin uyarıcı tepki izlerliğinin öğrenilmesi üzerindeki etkisi
Atalay, Nart Bedin; Ceylan, Suzan; Mısırlısoy, Mine (2013-06-01)
Uyarıcı tepki izlerliğini öğrenme değişimlemesinde (Schmidt ve ark., 2007) kelimeler çeşitli renklerde yazılır ve katılımcılar kelimenin rengine cevap verirler. Kelimenin renk ile ilintilendiği koşuldaki cevaplar ilintisiz koşula nazaran daha hızlıdır. Bu araştırmada dil değişimlemesinin uyarıcı tepki izlerliğinin öğrenilmesi üzerindeki etkisi incelenmiştir. Bunun için Türkçe veya İngilizce kelimeler renklerle ilintilendirilmiş ve katılımcılar cevaplarını Türkçe veya İngilizce vermişlerdir. Ayrıca farklı di...
Effect of temperature on heavy oil/water relative permeabilities
Akın, Serhat; Brigham, William E. (1999-01-01)
In the first part of this study, the accuracy of the JBN technique for the determination of heavy oil/water relative permeabilities, and the effect of temperature on relative permeabilities is examined by giving numerical as well as experimental examples. Using the JBN technique leads to a false temperature dependence of relative permeability curves. In the second part, we present unsteady state relative permeability experiments with initial brine saturation at differing temperatures conducted using South B...
Effects of perceptual fluency on autobiographical memories
İnan, Aslı Bahar; Tekman, Hasan Gürkan; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2009)
The aim of this study was to find if manipulating fluency, that is, the ease of processing, could affect confidence ratings about whether an event occurred in the respondents’ past. To test the familiarity misattribution hypothesis, which states that familiarity caused by fluent processing can be misattributed to past experience if the source of fluency cannot be identified, two methods were used: a revelation task, which was anagram solving and repetition priming. In the revelation task the familiarity mis...
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.
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...
