Assessment of Differential Emotions among Socially Anxious Adolescents
This work examined patterns of emotional reactions among adolescents diagnosed with Social Phobia in response to an anxiety-provoking behavioral challenge. Participants included 67 adolescents (35 males and 32 females), ranging in age from 13 to 17 years. Based upon structured diagnostic interviews with adolescents and their parents, adolescent participants were categorized as either with or without a diagnosis of Social Phobia (i.e., Social Phobia vs. Normal Control).
The Effectiveness of Opposing Expert Testimony as a Safeguard Against Junk Science

reliability information and whether opposing expert
testimony is effecive in increasing sensitivity to such
information. One hundred and twenty-eight undergraduates played the role of jurors by watching a video of a mock trial involving a case of armed robbery.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall, What Impact Does Self-Monitoring Have on Us All?
Individuals differ in the extent to which they concern themselves with monitoring their behavior in social situations. People classified as high self-monitors tend to be attuned to the way they present themselves in social situations and adjust their performance to create a desired impression. We assessed individual levels of self-monitoring behaviors, as well as individual differences in public self-consciousness and the extent to which people conformed to gender norms. It was hypothesized that these individual differences would predict variability in grooming behaviors (e.g., showering, choosing clothes, brushing teeth, etc.) in a variety of settings.
Functional Academic Difficulties among College Students with Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
Symptoms of attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) emerge during childhood and consist of two clusters (i.e., inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity). While the disorder was once thought to remit by adolescence, more recent research has demonstrated that symptoms continue into adulthood for a substantial portion of cases (Barkley, 2006). Considerably less is known about the manifestation of ADHD during early adulthood. Even less is known about how those with the disorder function within a college setting.
