A Commentary on <p> <p>Transcranial stimulation of the frontal lobes increases propensity of mind-wandering without changing meta-awareness<p> <p>by Axelrod, V., Zhu, X., & Qui, J. (2018). <i>Scientific Reports</i>, 8:15975. doi: 10.1038/s41598-018-34098-z
Modeling distracted performance
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-23)
The sustained attention to response task (SART) has been the primary method of studying the phenomenon of mind wandering. We develop and experimentally test the first integrated cognitive process model that quantitatively explains all stationary features of behavioral performance in the SART. The model assumes that performance is generated by a competitive race between a stimulus-related decision ...
The thrill of speedy descents: A pilot study on differences in facially expressed online emotions and retrospective measures of emotions during a downhill mountain-bike descent
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-02)
When extreme sport athletes explain the engagement behind their taxing and risky endeavors, they often refer to the happiness generated by the activities. However, during the activity, these athletes seem neither pleased nor happy. This article proposes some answers from a study of facially expressed emotions measured moment by moment during downhill mountain biking. Self-reported emotions were ...
Blinding is compromised for transcranial direct current stimulation at 1 mA for 20 min in young healthy adults
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-19)
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non‐invasive brain stimulation method that is frequently used to study cortical excitability changes and their impact on cognitive functions in humans. While most stimulators are capable of operating in double‐blind mode, the amount of discomfort experienced during tDCS may break blinding. Therefore, specifically designed sham stimulation protocols ...
Increasing propensity to mind‐wander by transcranial direct current stimulation? A registered report
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2019-01-24)
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been proposed to be able to modulate different cognitive functions. However, recent meta‐analyses conclude that its efficacy is still in question. Recently, an increase in subjects’ propensity to mind‐wander has been reported as a consequence of anodal stimulation of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (Axelrod et al., Proceedings of the National ...
