New preprint and fawewell present from and for Rachel! A paper that has been in the making for nearly as long as she was in the lab (5 years!). We ystematically investigate the role of context on reinstatement-induced return of fear in a human differential fear conditioning paradigm using subjective and psychophysiological measures in a largesample (N=212) including reinstatement and control groups using Bayesian mixed models. Preprint here https://psyarxiv.com/65njk/.
Tina chaired a symposium at the (virtual) annual meeting of the Society for Psychophysiology (SPR) which showcased recent examples tackling the ‘replicability’ of ‘Open and Reproducible’ science practices in psychophysiological research. Three talks (Peter Clayson, Tampa, US; Andreas Keil, Gainsville, US; Manuel Kuhn, Boston, US) focused on multiverse analyses in EEG and skin conductance, one talk focused on an inventory of open data (Tina) and one (Michael Larsson) on the open access advantage by using electrophysiological research as a case example. You can find the video of Tina virtual talk below.
The COVID 19 pandemia has slowed down our research substiantially. Now, we finally finished the third preprint in a series of manuscripts focusing on multiverse-type of analyses.
Here we focus on within-approach heterogeneity in SCR quantification through the so called “baseline-correction appraoch”. We extracted different specifications used from the literature and applied 150 different pipelines to a single data set to find out how different parameter impact the results and effect sizes.

New preprint with Maren Klingelhöfer-Jens and collaborators Angelos Krypotos and Anna Gerlicher on Multiverse analyses in fear conditioning research! Check out the preprint that comes with an easy to use R package ‘Multifear’ that allows you to run a model-multiverse analyses in a single line of code. https://psyarxiv.com/2z6pd
New preprint on different skin conductance response quantification approaches.
Happy to announce a new pre-print with former post-doc Manuel Kuhn and collaborator Anna Gerlicher looking into the question how much different skin conductance response quantification approaches used impact on replicability. Tina recently presented a virtual poster on the results which you can watch here or have a look at the preprint https://psyarxiv.com/9h2kd
New work out on the association between brain morphology and fear conditioning and extinction in N=107. This work started as a internship project by the 2nd author Janne Nold with Mana and Tina – supported by Maren and Manuel. Congratulations all!
Sabrina submitted her thesis in which she did a stellar job on directly cmparing different SCR quantification approaches based on a systematic literature search – focusing on trough-to-peak scoring and baseline correction approaches. It was a pleasure working with Sabrina and the lab wishes her all the best for her PhD project!
Great news! The DFG funds a the Priority Program “META-REP: A meta-scientific program to analyze and optimize replicability in the behavioral, social, and cognitive sciences” coordinated by Mario Gollwitzer (Munich). Tina is part of the program commitee – together with Mario, Felix Schönbrodt, Susann Fiedler and Katrin Auspurg. Watch out for the open call by the DFG soon!
