Moderating a large community is a thankless job, which consists of many hours of spam removal and lots of verbal abuse from angry community members. Thanks to the +Science on G+​ mods for making this a great community!
 
+Science on G+ is a well-curated and high quality community which is populated by science posts. Since we take the time to curate each and every post, look at content, check stories and references and ask for references and links for every story, it is verifiable science. The posts in the community are a repertoire of knowledge which is reaching encyclopedic proportions which links across many topics and includes scientific journals, organizations, writers, scientists and people who just love the journey of discovery which is science.

Our strength has been our mods network, and I send this out as a hat-tip to them and the stellar work they put in to bring you the best science content which you can trust. You will not find memes in this community, nor will you find jokes. But you will find science which is amazing and fascinating.

Do share this post widely if you like science. I urge you to support us.

Thanks!
Science on G+

In this neighborhood, the commonest problem people have with their computer when they ask me to help is malware posing as helpful software that they clicked on in IE. Their machines slow to a crawl after a while.
Frankly, anything that doesn't demand JavaScript is much faster when looked up with Links (http://links.twibright.com/)  .

+Google+ - Please Fix the Ghost Communities
Do you find it odd that the largest community on G+ has 5.8 MILLION followers and the owner and mod are not even on Google+? Now it makes sense why the fb community and some of the other monster communities are filled with porn and spam - no one can remove posts or ban spammers!

One of my undergraduate students will be presenting this research at the Midwestern Psychological Association. Feel free to comment below if you have questions.
 
Heart Rate Variability Predicts Attentional Control
The current research will be presented at the Midwestern Psychological Association in April. See text below for a summary or click on picture to view full poster.

Summary of Research
The current study examined: (a) how auditory and visual distractors would affect performance on a visual selective attention task, and (b) if variability in resting heart rate could predict attentional control (i.e., more variability in heart rate = better selective attention).

Using two different flanker tasks, participants had to focus on animals inside of a box and quickly press "1" if they saw a bird and "3" if they saw a dog. Participants were also instructed to ignore the pictures of animals outside the box (visual distractor condition) or ignore the animal sounds (auditory distracter condition).

Sometimes the distracting pictures and sounds provided the same information as inside the box (e.g.,  bird inside the box and bird outside of box) and other times the distracting stimuli were incompatible (e.g., a bird was presented inside the box but a dog was presented outside of the box). Participants who are better at selectively attending to the animals inside of the box should be less distracted by the incompatible distractors (see Figures in poster for examples of trials).

We also manipulated cognitive load. On low load conditions, there was only one animal in the box. On high load conditions, there were six animals in the box. Thus, the high load condition should take longer to process and consume more attentional resources.

Heart rate was assessed in a five minute baseline before the experiment proper. Heart Rate Variability (variability in beat to beat intervals) was collected and computed using +MindWare Technologies LTD software and hardware.

Auditory and visual distractors were equally distracting, and incompatible distractors only slowed down responses in the high load condition (when there were more stimuli to process). Furthermore, participants with more variability in their heart rate were less influenced by the incompatible distractors (i.e,. they had better attentional control).

The current research is consistent with the neurovisceral integration model, which posits that the areas of the brain responsible for top down attentional control and emotion regulation (e.g., prefrontal cortex) are also indirectly connected to the heart via the vagus nerve (e.g., prefrontal inhibition on subcortical areas adds short term variability in heart rate). 

Future research will determine if HRV can predict attentional control in toddlers and young children. 

Please use the following reference if you want to cite this work:

We'll be discussing foraging theory, cooperative breeding, autonomous cars, and collective decision-making processes in ants and honeybees. Should be fun! Hope you can join us!
 
Dr. Theodore (Ted) P. Pavlic, Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at +Arizona State University. +Ted Pavlic received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2010 from The Ohio State University where he learned to combine behavioral ecology and control theory to build algorithms that allow automation to make flexible decisions that are rational with respect to the current environment. Inspiration came from optimal foraging theory and cooperative breeding, and target applications ranged from military to the sustainable built environment. From 2010 to 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in Computer Science and Engineering studying cyber-physical systems of the future composed of fully autonomous and human driven cars operating in parallel in the cities of the near future. Since 2012, he has worked as a research scientist at Arizona State University in the social-insect laboratory of Stephen Pratt studying the collective decision-making processes of ants and honeybees. Not only have these studies inspired novel stochastic programming techniques for swarm robotics, but these animal models are also providing insights into the information structures that emerged at the origins of life. In August of 2015, he will join the engineering faculty of Arizona State University where he will use a variety of theoretical, computational, and empirical methods to study decision-making and organization across a wide range of artificial and natural systems. Potential graduate students interested in trans-disciplinary explorations of decision making are welcome to contact him to discuss opportunities.

Dear +Google+, Please fix the porn problem. I can't even check my G+ stream without one of these sex event posts showing up (see left pic)!  Many of the large communities are getting bombarded with these posts. The problem is that anyone can spam up to five communities at the same time (see right pic), and these events automatically appear in everyone's stream. Given that some of these monster communities have over a million followers, with many kids in these communities, this gives spammers a very diverse and large audience. Please give moderators more control by either: (a) making it impossible for non-mods to post community events or (b) hiding community events from the public until they are approved by a moderator. Thanks in advance.
