#1. Measurement Schmeasurement: Questionable Measurement Practices and How to Avoid Them
Jessica Kay Flake, Eiko I. Fried
In this paper we define questionable measurement practices as decisions researchers make that leave questions about the measures in a study unanswered. This makes it impossible to evaluate a wide range of potential validity threats to the study’s conclusions. We demonstrate that psychology is plagued by a measurement schmeasurement attitude: QMPs are common, offer a stunning source of researcher degrees of freedom, pose a serious threat to cumulative psychological science, but are largely ignored. We address these challenges by providing a set of questions that researchers and consumers of scientific research can consider to identify and avoid QMPs. Transparent answers to these measurement questions promote rigorous research, allow for thorough evaluations of a study’s inferences, and are necessary for meaningful replication studies.

#2. The Relationship between Presence of Meaning, Search for Meaning, and Subjective Well-Being: A Three-Level Meta-Analysis based on the Meaning in Life Questionnaire
Jian-Bin Li, Kai Dou
Meaning in life can be understood as how much people experience life meaning, i.e., presence of meaning (POM) and how intensely they seek life meaning, i.e., search for meaning (SFM). Previous research has related POM and SFM to the subjective well-being (SWB) of individuals, but the findings are inconsistent. This meta-analysis investigates the overall relationship between POM/SFM and SWB by examining previous studies that have used Steger et al.’s (2006) Meaning in Life Questionnaire to assess POM and SFM. Results of 148 studies, reporting 726 effect sizes (N=92,169), suggest the effect size for the “POM–SWB” relationship is close to medium (ESz=0.418, p<.001, 95% CI=[0.390,0.446]). The effect is larger in life satisfaction and cross-sectional studies. The effect size for the “SFM–SWB” association is small (ESz=-.121, p<.001, 95% CI=[-0.155,-0.817]), with the effect being larger for negative affect, cross-sectional studies, and older participants. Interestingly, SFM is positively related to SWB for participants from...

#3. Psychological Networks in Clinical Populations: A tutorial on the consequences of Berkson's Bias
Jill de Ron, Eiko I. Fried, Sacha Epskamp
In clinical research, populations are often selected on the sum-score of diagnostic criteria, i.e. symptoms. Estimating statistical models where a subset of the data is selected based on a function of the analyzed variables introduces Berkson’s bias, which presents a potential threat to the validity of findings in the clinical literature. The aim of the present paper is to investigate the effect of Berkson’s bias on the performance of the two most commonly used psychological network models, the Gaussian Graphical Model (GGM) for continuous and ordinal data, and the Ising Model for binary data. In two simulation studies, we test how well the models perform in recovering the true network when estimation is based on a subset of the data typically seen in clinical studies. The selection of data varies with respect to sample size and the cut-off sum-score of the analyzed variables. Recovery performance is established via three metrics: correlation, sensitivity, and specificity. In addition, the density and the amount of spurious...

#4. Removing hand information specifically impairs emotion recognition for fearful and angry body stimuli
Paddy Ross, Tessa Flack
Emotion perception research has largely been dominated by work on facial expressions, but emotion is also strongly conveyed from the body. Research exploring emotion recognition from the body tends to refer to ‘the body’ as a whole entity. However, the body is made up of different components (hands, arms, trunk etc.), all of which could be differentially contributing to emotion recognition. We know that the hands can convey action, and in particular are important for social communication through gestures, but we currently do not know to what extent the hands influence emotion recognition from ‘the body’. Here, 93 adults viewed static emotional body stimuli with either the hands, arms, or both components removed and completed a forced-choice emotion recognition task. Removing the hands significantly reduced recognition accuracy for fear and anger, but made no significant difference to the recognition of happiness and sadness. Removing the arms had no effect on emotion recognition accuracy compared to the full-body stimuli. ...

#5. Prediction of a Rise in Antisocial Personality Disorder through Cross - Generational Analysis
Shannon Fernandes
Psychopathy, in its literal sense, is a dangerous disorder. It exhibits antisocial behavior, inclusive of rage or aggression, fantasy, etc. The current psychopath population is 1%, but this paper puts forth the probability of an increase in the current population. No individual scores a zero on the Levenson scale, and that in itself shows the innate harsh tendencies of the individual, hidden behind the social norms and good values, however, this paper shows how those could be affected and cause the individual to rank higher on the APD scale (given below), resulting in undesired antisocial behavior or the potential behavior. In this paper, we have taken the scores of the different generations (gen x, millennials, and gen z) to outline the statistical change in the scores to predict an estimate. This paper, through the different variables and the statistics, deduces an increase in the APD population to be a likely one in the future to come through theoretical prediction.

#6. Open Science: A Candid Conversation
Kendal N. Smith, Matthew Makel
In response to concerns about the credibility of many published research findings, open science reforms such as preregistration, data sharing, and alternative forms of publication are being increasingly adopted across scientific communities. Although journals in giftedness and advanced academics research have already implemented several of these practices, they remain unfamiliar to some researchers. In this informal conversation, Kendal Smith and Matthew Makel discuss how they came to know and use open science practices; open science values; benefits and objections; and their future aspirations for open science practices in gifted education research. Their conversation aims to help make open science practices more understandable and actionable for both early career and established researchers.

#7. Getting to know me better: An fMRI study of intimate and superficial self-disclosure to friends during adolescence
Nandita Vijayakumar, John Flournoy, Kate Mills, Theresa W Cheng, Arian Mobasser, Jessica Flannery, Nick Allen, Jennifer Pfeifer
Adolescence is often defined as a period of social reorientation, characterized by increased engagement with, and reliance on, same-aged peers. Consistent with these shifting motivations, we hypothesized that communicating information about oneself to friends would be intrinsically valued during adolescence. We also examined behavioral and neural differences when sharing information of varying depth in intimacy. These questions were investigated in a sample of early adolescent girls (N = 125, ages 10.0-13.0 years) who completed an fMRI adaptation of a monetary choice task on self-disclosure. Behaviorally, adolescents gave up money to share self-referential information with (real-life) close friends, and neural analyses identified extensive engagement of regions that support reward, social cognition and emotion regulation when engaging in disclosure. Behavioral and neural valuation of sharing superficial information were related to individual differences in self-worth and friendship quality. Comparatively, across all levels of...

#8. No clear advantage for high variability training during voice identity learning
Nadine Lavan, Sarah Knight, Valerie Hazan, Carolyn McGettigan
High variability training has been shown to benefit the learning of new face identities. In two experiments, we investigated whether this is also the case for voice identity learning. In Experiment 1, we contrasted high variability training sets including stimuli extracted from a number of different recording sessions, speaking environments and speaking style with low variability stimulus sets that only included a single speaking style (read speech) extracted from one recording session (see Ritchie & Burton, 2017 for faces). In Experiment 2, variability was manipulated in terms of the number of unique items as opposed to number of unique speaking contexts/styles. Here, we contrasted the high variability training sets used in Experiment 1 with low variability training sets that included the same breadth of contexts/styles, but fewer unique items; instead, individual items were repeated (see Murphy, Ipser, Gaigg & Cook, 2015 for faces). For both studies, listeners were trained on 4 voice identities (2 identities through high...

#9. Category Learning can alter perception and its neural correlates.
Fernanda Pérez Gay Juárez, Tomy Sicotte, Christian Thériault, Stevan Harnad
Learned Categorical Perception (CP) occurs when the members of different categories come to look more dissimilar (“between-category separation”) and/or members of the same category come to look more similar (“within-category compression”) after a new category has been learned. To measure learned CP and its physiological correlates we compared dissimilarity judgments and Event Related Potentials (ERPs) before and after learning to sort multi-featured visual textures into two categories by trial and error with corrective feedback. With the same number of training trials and feedback, about half the participants succeeded in learning the categories (“learners”: criterion 80% accuracy) and the rest did not (“non-learners”). At both lower and higher levels of difficulty, successful learners showed significant between-category separation in pairwise dissimilarity judgments after learning compared to before; their late parietal ERP positivity (LPC, usually interpreted as decisional) also increased and their occipital negativity (N1)...

#10. Purpose in life is associated with health outcomes among diabetic adults
Sara J. Weston, Patrick Hill, Dan Mroczek
Objective: Health complications as a result of diabetes place major financial strain on individuals, financially and emotionally. The onset and severity of these complications is largely driven by patients’ behaviors, making psychosocial factors that influence behaviors key targets for interventions. One promising factor is sense of purpose, or the degree to which a person believes their life has meaning. Methods: Coordinated analysis using 12 datasets cross-sectionally and eight longitudinally (total N = 63,307) estimated the degree to which sense of purpose is associated with smoking, subjective health, and cardiovascular disease among diabetic adults. In addition, effect sizes for diabetic adults was compared to samples of non-diabetic adults, estimating whether the relationship of purpose to health is tempered by the presence of diabetes. Coordinated analysis allows for greater generalizability of results across cultures, time periods, and measurement instruments. Results: Sense of purpose was associated with higher...
