  1. A neurocognitive account of attentional control theory: how does trait anxiety affect the brain’s attentional networks?Michael W. Eysenck, Jason S. Moser, Nazanin Derakshan, Piril Hepsomali & Paul Allen - forthcoming - Cognition and Emotion.
    Attentional control theory (ACT) was proposed to account for trait anxiety’s effects on cognitive performance. According to ACT, impaired processing efficiency in high anxiety is mediated through inefficient executive processes that are needed for effective attentional control. Here we review the central assumptions and predictions of ACT within the context of more recent empirical evidence from neuroimaging studies. We then attempt to provide an account of ACT within a framework of the relevant cognitive processes and their associated neural mechanisms and (...)

  • The Effects of Emotional Working Memory Training on Trait Anxiety.Gabrielle C. Veloso & Welison Evenston G. Ty - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    BackgroundTrait anxiety is a pervasive tendency to attend to and experience fears and worries to a disproportionate degree, across various situations. Decreased vulnerability to trait anxiety has been linked to having higher working memory capacity and better emotion regulation; however, the relationship between these factors has not been well-established.ObjectiveThis study sought to determine if participants who undergo emotional working memory training will have significantly lower trait anxiety post-training. The study also sought to determine if emotion regulation mediated the relationship between (...)

  • Training Working Memory in Adolescents Using Serious Game Elements: Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial.Wouter J. Boendermaker, Thomas Edward Gladwin, Margot Peeters, Pier J. M. Prins & Reinout W. Wiers - unknown
    Working memory capacity has been found to be impaired in adolescents with various psychological problems, such as addictive behaviors. Training of working memory capacity can lead to significant behavioral improvements, but it is usually long and tedious, taxing participants' motivation to train. This study aimed to evaluate whether adding game elements to the training could help improve adolescents' motivation to train while improving cognition. A total of 84 high school students were allocated to a working memory capacity training, a gamified (...)
