Examining Cognitive Creativity as an Individual Difference in Second Language Acquisition

Pıpes, Ashleıgh Carter
This study examines cognitive creativity as an individual difference and its role in processes and outcomes of second language acquisition. The study explores relationships between participants’ creativity, as measured by the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking, and their course grades, narrative structure use, and communication strategy use.

This study was conducted to examine students' perceptions of collaboration, socialization and task complexity in an online collaborative learning environment. Implementation of the collaborative learning was performed via Google Docs. The study group consists of 43 fourth grade university students who take "Research Methods" course. The students were divided into 11 groups. The students were expected to prepare a research proposal in line with the problem statement which was determined by themselves as part...
Exploring hand movement dynamics during the Simon task: a mouse tracking study.
İkizoğlu, Hatice Buke; Çakır, Murat Perit; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2019)
Understanding how the cognitive system processes information in real-time is one of the key concerns for researchers in experimental psychology and cognitive science. Several measures and software tools have been proposed to explore different aspects of cognitive processing phenomena. One of these methods, mouse-tracking, allows researchers to collect data about the dynamic unfolding of motor responses by recording the participants’ mouse movements during cognitive tasks. In the present study, we replicated...
Expanding horizons of cross-linguistic research on reading: The Multilingual Eye-movement Corpus (MECO)
Siegelman, Noam; et. al. (2022-02-01)
Scientific studies of language behavior need to grapple with a large diversity of languages in the world and, for reading, a further variability in writing systems. Yet, the ability to form meaningful theories of reading is contingent on the availability of cross-linguistic behavioral data. This paper offers new insights into aspects of reading behavior that are shared and those that vary systematically across languages through an investigation of eye-tracking data from 13 languages recorded during text rea...
Towards Group Cognitive Analysis of Collaborative Learning with Eye Tracking and Brain Imaging Technologies
Çakır, Murat Perit (null; 2013-06-15)
This paper aims to motivate the need for a group cognitive approach for the multimodal analysis of learning to better account for neural and ocular correlates of collaborative learning. In reference to related work in the emerging fields of two-person neuroscience and dual-eye tracking, the paper argues for the need for moving from a singlemind perspective to a group cognitive perspective where neural and ocular correlates of joint meaning making are investigated in the context of sequentially unfolding soc...
Representations of Personality Disorders Beliefs on Interpersonal Circumplex Model
Akyunus, Miray; Gençöz, Tülin (2016-06-01)
Cognitive Theory and Interpersonal Circumplex Model explaining cognitive and interpersonal patterns of personality disorders (PD) are well established in personality literature. The main objective of the study is to investigate the representations of personality beliefs defined by Cognitive Theory on the Interpersonal Circumplex space and to integrate these two models. Analyses were conducted with 962 adults of a community sample (302 men, 660 women) after the participants who are on psychiatric treatment o...
