ICPSR Introduces New Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and Research (ADDEP)

ICPSR is happy to announce the creation of its new archive on disability. The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP, pronounced like adept without the 't') will include longitudinal datasets that make it easier to follow the onset of disability and changes in functional status that occur over time. ADDEP will increase discovery about and understanding of people living with disability in the US, aiding researchers, policy makers, and others. 

The ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database provides search and browsing access to abstracts and data sets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data.

Primacy in the Effects of Face Exposure: Perception is Influenced More By Faces That Are Seen First  (ICPSR 35518)

 

Principal Investigator(s): Little, Anthony, University of Stirling; Jones, Benedict, University of Glasgow; DeBruine, Lisa, University of Glasgow

 

Summary:

Exposure to faces biases perceptions of subsequently viewed faces. In literature on memory, there are prominent effects of primacy, whereby people remember things better if they are at the beginning of a list. Here we tested for primacy in face exposure by exposing people to faces that had been transformed in opposite directions twice. In one condition, for example, we exposed people to "plus" faces and measured how much they though "plus" faces appeared normal and then exposed them to "anti" faces and again measured how much they though "plus" faces appeared normal. A primacy effect would be seen if after the second measurement, judgments of "plus" faces were unchanged from the first measurement whereas a recency effect would be seen if after the second measurement, judgments of "plus" faces were lower than from the first measurement. We found no change in normality judgement between first and second judgments supporting a primacy effect. Our results indicated a primacy effect in adaptation whereby faces seen first affected perception more than faces seen later. This primacy effect could lead to long lasting effects of exposure to faces.

Assessment of Defense and Prosecutorial Strategies in Terrorism Trials in the United States, 1980-2004 (ICPSR 26241)

 

 

Principal Investigator(s): Smith, Brent L., University of Arkansas; Shields, Christopher A., University of Arkansas; Damphousse, Kelly R., University of Oklahoma

 

Summary:

This study created a flat-file database of information regarding defendants who were referred to United States Attorneys by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) following official terrorism investigations between 1980 and 2004. Its ultimate goal was to provide state and federal prosecutors with empirical information that could assist federal and state prosecutors with more effective strategies for prosecution of terrorism cases. The results of this study enhanced the existing 78 variables in the AMERICAN TERRORISM STUDY, 1980-2002 (ICPSR 4639) database by adding the 162 variables from the Prosecution and Defense Strategies (PADS) database. The variables in the PADS database track information regarding important pleadings, motions, and other key events that occur in federal terrorism trials; the PADS variables measure the strategies used by legal counsel as well as other legal nuances.
