In this project we examine the effect of task switching instructions on switch cue evaluations.
Data, analysis scripts, and experimental program for the study "Motor simulation is disturbed when experiencing pain"
The self-sufficiency hypothesis suggests that priming individuals with money makes them focus more strongly on themselves than on others. However, recently, research supporting this claim has been heavily criticized and some attempts to replicate have failed. A reason for the inconsistent findings in the field may lay in the common use of explicit measures, because they tend to rely on one or just a few items and are thus prone to demand effects and low...
Estimation of Controlled Direct Effects in Longitudinal Mediation Analyses with Latent Variables in Randomized StudiesWen Wei Loh, Beatrijs Moerkerke, Tom Loeys, Louise Poppe, Geert Crombez & Stijn Vansteelandt
In a randomized study with longitudinal data on a mediator and outcome, estimating the direct effect of treatment on the outcome at a particular time requires adjusting for confounding of the association between the outcome and all preceding instances of the mediator. When the confounders are themselves affected by treatment, standard regression adjustment is prone to severe bias. In contrast, G-estimation requires less stringent assumptions than path analysis using SEM to unbiasedly estimate the direct...

The present studies investigated whether priming autonomous motivation facilitated persistence and plans to do exercise
This experiment investigates the influence of Go/No-Go training on fast candy choices, with participants assigned to either the 10-block or 14-block training condition. Potential long-term effect (one to two weeks after training) will also be explored.

The impact of instructed statistical US-CS contingency and co-occurrence on evaluative and fear learning (Study 1 & 2)Simone Mattavelli, Jan De Houwer & Pieter Van Dessel
In this study we examine the impact of instructed statistical US-CS contingency and co-occurrence on evaluative and fear learning
This project aimed to investigate whether enhanced Pavlovian aversive conditioning can occur to stimuli that are relevant to the organism’s concerns beyond biological and evolutionary considerations, and whether such enhanced emotional learning is modulated by inter-individual differences in affect and motivation.
