Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Desde do início do sec. XX que se acumularam evidências empíricas de que a presença dos outros tem um impacto no desempenho dos indivíduos. Este fenómeno é celebremente conhecido como Facilitação Social. Seguindo a ideia de Allport (1985) tomamos como equivalente à presença real dos outros a sua presença imaginária. Testamos então a hipótese de que a mera primação de presença vs ausência de outros replicaria o efeito já conhecido da facilitação social no paradigma Stroop. Os resultados do estudo dão suporte à hipótese em estudo. A primação da presença dos outros diminui os efeitos de stroop exactamente como a verdadeira presença de outros, no entanto este efeito apenas se torna claro para indivíduos com baixo nível de auto-monitorização.

Title:
Modes of processing and challenge and threat in the presence or absence of others
Publication year: 2011
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Within a comprehensive perspective of human behavior we present data that suggests that cognitive processing is accompanied by specific motivational states of challenge and threat, being this effect amplified by basic social contexts, like mere presence. Our framework brings together evidence from social cognition and psychophysiology and relates it with a classic effect of social psychology. Specifically, we integrated the familiarity as a regulation mechanism model (Garcia-Marques, 1999; Garcia-Marques & Mackie, 2001, 2007) with the biopsychossocial model of challenge and threat (Tomaka et. al, 1991; Blascovich, 2008), within a social facilitation setting. This integrated approach originated two main assumptions that were tested in this investigation. The first one derives from the assumption that familiarity moderates information-processing modes (Garcia-Marques & Mackie, 2001, 2007) and that familiarity increases psychophysiological state of challenge (Blascovich et al, 1993; 1999). Based on this, we hypothesized that non-analytic processing would be associated to cardiovascular challenge. We tested this hypothesis on experiment 1 using a persuasion paradigm. Participants assigned to a familiar or unfamiliar condition were asked to read a strong or weak persuasive message and then asked to list their thoughts to a video-camera while their physiological responses were recorded. As expected, results demonstrated that those, assigned to a familiar condition, generated thoughts that reflect non-analytic processing and exhibited a cardiovascular pattern of challenge. Conversely, those assigned to an unfamiliar condition generated the types of thoughts associated to analytic processing and exhibited a cardiovascular pattern of threat. Based on these results, we raised the subsidiary hypothesis that challenge could have a direct impact on information-processing. Thus, on experiment 2 we eliminated the familiarity path and induced challenge and threat prior to information-processing task. Our results made the previously found association clearer. Participants assigned to a challenge condition processed persuasive information non-analytically, whereas participants assigned to a threat condition processed it more analytically. The second assumption derived from our framework suggests an amplification role played by the presence of others. Based on Blascovich et al.´work (1999) we expected that the effects of challenge and threat on information-processing to be more strongly observed when participants perform in the presence of other, than when they perform alone. To test this hypothesis, we replicated experiment 1 and 2 adding a manipulation of presence vs. absence of others. Results seem to support an amplification effect, such as the effects observed in the previous experiments were only significant when others were present in the experimental situation, but not when participants were alone. These results are interpreted in terms of the cognitive characteristics associated with challenge that typically trigger non-analytic processing, namely accessibility and ease. Further interpretations are also provided in order to explore if the stimulus that signals the cognitive system to engage in non-analytic processing is a pure cognitive or motivational one. Implications for the FARM model, the BPS model and social facilitation are discussed within an integrated perspective of human behavior.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A robust finding in social psychology research is that performance is modulated by the social nature of a given context, promoting social inhibition or facilitation effects. In the present experiment, we examined if and how social presence impacts holistic face perception processes by asking participants, in the presence of others and alone, to perform the composite face task. Results suggest that completing the task in the presence of others (i.e., mere co-action) is associated with better performance in face recognition (less bias and higher discrimination between presented and non-presented targets) and with a reduction in the composite face effect. These results make clear that social presence impact on the composite face effect does not occur because presence increases reliance on holistic processing as a “dominant” well-learned response, but instead, because it increases monitoring of the interference produced by automatic response.

Challenge and threat motivation: Effects on superficial and elaborative information processing
Publication year: 2014

http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpsyg.2014.01170/abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper integrates the motivational states of challenge and threat within a dual processing perspective. Previous research has demonstrated that individuals experience a challenge state when individuals have sufficient resources to cope with the demands of a task (Blascovich et al., 1993). Because the experience of resource availability has been shown to be associated with superficial processing (Garcia-Marques and Mackie, 2007), we tested the hypothesis that challenge is associated with superficial processing in two persuasion experiments. Experiment 1 revealed that inducing attitudes of participants in a challenge state was not sensitive to the quality of arguments presented. Experiment 2 demonstrated that the effect occurs even when task engagement, manipulated by the presence (vs. the absence) of a task observer (Blascovich et al., 1993), is high. The implications of these results for the biopsychosocial model model and the cognitive and motivational literature are discussed.

History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In this paper we present the norms for a set of 50 images of animals that were evaluated by a total sample of 78 college students regarding the following dimensions: valence, familiarity, fear, disgust and dangerousness. Ten categories of animals were selected based on the assumption of their negativity and association to emotions such as fear and disgust and included images of animals likely to be found either in a domestic (i.e., bee, gecko, centipede, mouse and cockroach) or non-domestic context (i.e., snake, scorpion, lizard, bat and tarantula). Each image was evaluated by a minimum of 38 participants. Altogether, results regarding the 10 categories suggest that: (a) all may be classified as negative, (b) seven are perceived as familiar, as associated to high fear and/or disgust and (c) four are perceived as dangerous. Here we present the evaluations obtained by each animal category (and exemplar) in each dimension with the goal of contributing to future research that require the use of negative stimuli associated to fear or disgust.

Seeing the big picture: Size perception is more context-sensitive in the presence of others
Publication year: 2015
URL:
http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0141992
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper tests the hypothesis that social presence influences size perception by increasing context sensitivity. Consistent with Allport’s prediction, we expected to find greater context sensitivity in participants who perform a visual task in the presence of other people (i.e., in co-action) than in participants who perform the task in isolation. Supporting this hypothesis, participants performing an Ebbinghaus illusion-based task in co-action showed greater size illusions than those performing the task in isolation. Specifically, participants in a social context had greater difficulty perceiving the correct size of a target circle and ignoring its surroundings. Analyses of delta plot functions suggest a mechanism of interference monitoring, since that when individuals take longer to respond, they are better able to ignore the surrounding circles. However, this type of monitoring interference was not moderated by social presence. We discuss how this lack of moderation might be the reason why the impact of social presence on context sensitivity is able to be detected in tasks such as the Ebbinghaus illusion.

Social facilitation of the face composite effect

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The “Composite Face Effect” (CFE, the higher difficulty in recognizing top-halves of familiar faces combined with the aligned bottom-half of a different face, relatively to when the same face parts are misaligned; Young et al., 1987), has been explained as derived from the early selection processes that influence allocation of attention (Kimchi, 2010) and not from the late process of interference’s monitoring (Richler, et al., 2009). The “Social Facilitation Effect” (SFE, the differences in processing of individuals in isolation compared to individual in co-action) has been accounted in terms of attentional mechanisms (Baron, 1986). Huguet et al. (1999) have argued that these effects result from an increased monitoring of undesirable influences in presence of others. Our data show that the CFE increases in the presence of others challenges the above explanations, suggesting that either the CFE is due to interference or SFE does not increase monitoring.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.

Contents: ABSTRACT:
In this research project, we developed a set of studies framed in a biopsychosocial perspective in order to investigate the role of social context (e.g., co-action and mere-presence of others) in how we process information. We hypothesized, according to previous data obtained, that the presence of others increases task engagement and context-sensitivity reactions, producing social facilitation at the same time that it increases executive control function. This project grounds its biopsychosocial approach on the development of experimental studies that use measures of processes and physiologic indexes, such as heart rate, ventricular contractility, cardiac output, total peripheral resistance, skin conductance, and facial electromyography activity (EMG).
Across a set of empirical studies we found support for the general idea that cognition is situated, in that social presence increases task engagement influencing how we process information, increases our sensitivity to features of the current environment, and at the same time tunes our mind to control undesirable influences of such context. In contrast, individuals in isolation were less sensitive to the influence of the context and, if that influence occurred, they did not seem to have the capacity to monitor undesirable influences.
The specific studies developed in this project were framed in different papers, which add the following information to the literature, beyond the above detailed aspects: a) social presence impacts the composite face effect by increasing holistic processing; b) social presence impacts performance on an emotional Stroop task, c) social presence increases Ebbinghaus visual illusions and d) social presence leads individuals to report higher levels of general well-being .
Additional contributions of this research to the literature are: a) individuals exhibiting cardiovascular responses associated with an experience of challenge (in opposition to threat) process information more superficially; b) experiences of familiarity, which have physiological responses similar to challenge states, do not overlap with challenge states in terms of processing features; c) Stroop interference effects can be detected at a physiological level, namely through EMG contraction patterns.
