Hostile attributional bias and self-esteem as mechanisms linking earlier peer victimization and later internalizing symptomsOsicky, J. & Hubbard, J. [Faculty Sponsor: Julie Hubbard]<p><br></p><p>Approximately 33% of American youth report serious instances of peer victimization.  Peer victimization is linked to internalizing problems, specifically anxiety and depression. The goal of the current study was to evaluate hostile attributional bias (HAB) and self-esteem as mechanisms linking earlier peer victimization and later internalizing problems. The study leveraged longitudinal data to assess whether HAB and self-esteem at age 13 mediate the relations between peer victimization at age 10 and depressive and anxious symptoms at age 15. Participants were 143 adolescents (mean age = 15.1 years; 52% female). At age 10, participants reported on their victimization using the Comprehensive Scales of Peer Victimization (Morrow et al., 2014). At age 13, participants completed a task assessing HAB (Kupersmidt, Stelter, & Dodge, 2011) and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1989). At age 15, participants reported on their depressive and anxious symptoms using the Children’s Depression Inventory 2 (Kovacs, 2011) and the Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children (March, 1997). Data were analyzed using path analysis in Mplus Version 8 (Muthén & Muthén, 1998-2017). Victimization at age 10 positively predicts internalizing symptoms at age 15. Self-esteem at age 13 mediated relations between victimization at age 10 and both internalizing symptoms at age 15. However, HAB did not serve as a mediator in the relations between victimization and the internalizing symptoms.</p> Day/Attachments/4/Joey Osicky.pdf

Sad but not fearful facial expressions restore recognition of other-race faces in infants following perceptual narrowingBeichert, A., Johnson, K., Mayerson, S., Reid, C., Reynolds, R., Zografos, C., & Quinn, P.C. [Faculty Sponsor: Paul Quinn]<p><br></p><p>A recent investigation reported that perceptual narrowing for face race in infants could be disrupted with faces that depict angry or happy facial expressions (Quinn, Lee, Pascalis, & Xiao, 2020). Given that angry faces pose threat and happy faces invite affiliation, the findings were interpreted as evidence that the expressions motivated infants to encode face identity. The current study was undertaken to explore this interpretation by examining whether sad or fearful expressions could disrupt perceptual narrowing for face race. The participants were Caucasian 6- and 9-month-olds who have been shown to have difficulty discriminating among neutral Asian faces and between African faces, respectively. The results were that the infants discriminated the other-race faces when depicted with sad but not fearful facial expressions. The findings provide further support that infants are processing the communicative intent of the expressions. Infants may have encoded the identity of the sad faces because those faces display a call for help. By contrast, fearful facial expressions indicate an external threat, but may not provide motivation for encoding face identity given that the threat is external to the individual posing the expression.</p> Day/Attachments/6/Beichert-etal-Quinn--2020-Poster.pdf
