Social decision making as a cognitive behaviorist views it

Jeffrey Ronald DeWitt
Models of social preferences have been at the fore of research in decision science seeking to explain strategic behavior in experimental games. However, the source of the behavioral consistency these approaches seek to model could originate from a motivation to conform to and enforce social norms. Across four studies, the rationality of strategic choices in monetary games is measured as well as whether beliefs about the behavior and expectations of others are associated with pro-social...

Groundwater supply was investigated in regard to existing groundwater yields, geologic...

A novel framework for understanding atypical images

Babak Saleh
In the past few years, there has been a tremendous amount of progress in the field of computer vision. As of now, we have reliable object detectors and classifiers that can recognize thousands of object categories. However, the ultimate goal of computer vision is to build systems that can understand and reason about images, far beyond scene categorization and object detection. In this thesis, algorithms have been proposed to empower computers with the human-level ability...

Confluence of influence

Dianne Laura Fabii
This dissertation examines how second generation Indian-American youth in the United States are negotiating and transforming the practice of arranged marriage. The tradition of arranged marriage has been modeled in their families for generations, but these youth are growing up in a cultural context that highly values freedom of choice and embraces autonomy, as well as validates various alternative lifestyles other than marriage. The bicultural identities of second generation Indian-American youth provide a framework for...

Why and how do parents decide to send their children to the interdistrict school choice program at the magnet program for math and science

Kevin S. Doyle
The New Jersey Interdistrict School Choice Program allows parents to send their students to schools outside of their local school district. Determining why parents send their students to choice schools is important to school leaders who are trying to attract new students, as well as those who are trying to retain their current students. This study examined the reasons why parents decided to send their students to the Magnet Program for Math and Science (MP4M&S),...

Droplet penetration method as a wettability test for pharmaceutical powders

Yu Han
A droplet penetration method (DPM) was developed to characterize the wettability of pharmaceutical powders. Sessile droplets of two different liquids, used as test and reference liquids, were deposited on a slightly compressed powder bed and their penetration processes was recorded. Two simplifying assumptions are considered. First, the capillary pressure inside the porous powder is the only dominant driving force for the imbibition of drops. Second, the contact area between the penetrating drop and the powder...

Social and health determinants of end-of-life care quality

Elizabeth Anne Luth
Providing high-quality end-of-life (EOL) care to the nearly 1.9 million older adults who die each year in the U.S. is a pressing concern for policy makers and health care professionals. Medical and public health literature examines the quality of care for dying patients by considering a single measure or a handful of measures separately and in an atheoretical manner. I conduct latent class analysis (LCA) on four waves of National Health and Aging Trends Study...

On becoming relational

Eric Hartman
This case study outlines the experiences in training that shaped my professional identity and practice as a relational psychotherapist. I show how my clinical conduct shifted over the course of a single treatment by reflecting on previously unquestioned commitments to certain psychoanalytic techniques and then how I became more open to new ways of experiencing the patient and my internal responses to him. Using Donnel Stern's (1997) framework on dissociation and unformulated experience, I show...
