When copying a model's behavior with a tool, children tend to imitate (copy the specific actions to replicate the model's goal) rather than emulate (bring about the model's goal in the most efficient way). Tasks producing these findings test children... Read More

Improving emotional prosody detection in the attending ear by cathodal tDCS suppression of the competing channel (2011)
Journal Article
Alexander, T., Avirame, K., & Lavidor, M. (2012). Improving emotional prosody detection in the attending ear by cathodal tDCS suppression of the competing channel. Neuroscience letters, 508(1), (52-55). doi:10.1016/j.neulet.2011.12.017. ISSN 0304-3940

Currently it is assumed that cathodal stimulation (in transcranial direct current stimulation, tDCS) degrades the neural firing rate, and thus it is believed to degrade cognitive performance. Here we challenge this assumption by predicting that under... Read More
