Radical Flank Environmental Study Fall 2020

Brent Simpson, Robb Willer & Matthew Feinberg
This experiment will investigate how the existence of "radical flanks" in social movements impacts identification with and support for more moderate arms of the social movement (here we refer to the latter as the "focal group"). This study investigates these effects in the context of the environmental movement.

Mathematics Open Educational Resources

Amie Freeman, Hengtao Tang & Jade Geary
This site hosts resources to assist in the discovery and adoption of open and affordable course materials for mathematics.

Active vs Passive Consumption of Public Goods

Jered Abernathy & Brent Simpson
This experiment will investigate how adding an active consumption stage to the traditional public goods dilemma increases contributions to the public good. This study uses an online experimental setting to measure cooperation rates in small groups.

Canadian Bank Notes and Dominion Notes: Lessons for Digital Currencies

Ben Fung, Scott Hendry & Warren E. Weber
This paper studies the period in Canada when both private bank notes and government-issued notes (Dominion notes) were simultaneously in circulation. Because both of these notes shared many of the characteristics of today's digital currencies, the experience with these notes can be used to draw lessons about how digital currencies might perform. The paper begins with a brief historical review of how these notes came into existence and of the regulations regarding their issuance. It...

Targeting Rac1 for the prevention of atherosclerosis among U.S. Veterans with inflammatory bowel disease

S. Scott Sutton, Joseph Magagnoli, Tammy H. Cummings & James W. Hardin
Evidence suggests that Ras-related C3 botulinum toxin substrate 1 (Rac1) might be a target in atherosclerotic disease (AD). We hypothesize that due to their ability to inhibit Rac1, thiopurines are associated with a lower risk of AD. We fit a time-dependent cox proportional hazards model estimating the hazard of AD among a national cohort of US veterans with inflammatory bowel disease. Patients exposed to thiopurines had a 7.5% lower risk of AD (HR = 0.925;...

Functional connectivity supporting fluency

Lorelei Johnson, Alexandra Basilakos, Julius Fridriksson, Argye Hillis, Leonardo Bonilha, Christopher Rorden, Gregory Hickok, Grigori Yourganov & Brielle Stark
Lesions to the inferior frontal gyrus have often been associated with non-fluent aphasia. Though frank damage to critical language regions such as the IFG can impact behavior, the contribution of regions that are functionally, but not necessarily structurally, damaged is unclear. The described project aims to reexamine critical regions associated with speech fluency in order to determine the unique contribution of functional connections between those regions.

Inequality, Segregation and Collective Action

Brent Simpson
We will run a three condition experiment with 8 person multi-level public goods games. Each 8 person group is comprised of two 4-person subgroups. There are two types of public goods - LOCAL public goods that benefit only members of the associated subgroup, and GLOBAL public goods that benefit the entire 8 person group. Any contributions to the local public good are multiplied by 2 and divided equally among all four members of the subgroup....

Do Styles of Moral Reasoning Predict Attitudes toward Consensual Non-monogamy?

Justin Mogilski & Niegel Cunningham
Our study will examine the psychology that underlies moral condemnation of consensually non-monogamous (CNM) romantic relationships (i.e., a relationship where people form multiple consensually non-exclusive romantic or sexual partnerships at the same time). The project will consistent of two phases. In the first, we will use a scale developed in a previous project (i.e., the CNM Apprehension Scale) to assess for which aspects of a CNM relationship people worry about, and also administer several other...
