    Akira Miyake
    Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO, USA
    Science 330:1234-7. 2010
    ..Benefits were strongest for women who tended to endorse the stereotype that men do better than women in physics. A brief psychological intervention may be a promising way to address the gender gap in science performance and learning...

    Lee J Altamirano
    Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309 0345, USA
    Psychol Sci 21:1377-82. 2010
    ..Overall, these results suggest that depressive rumination reflects a trait associated with more stability (goal maintenance) than flexibility (goal shifting)...

    Susan E Young
    Institute for Behavioral Genetics, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309, USA
    J Abnorm Psychol 118:117-30. 2009

    Acta Psychol (Amst) 115:123-42. 2004
    ..These results suggest that inner speech may be recruited as a tool for retrieving and activating the relevant task goal when the task cue is not transparent and hence imposes nonnegligible retrieval demand...

    Katherine A Rawson
    Department of Psychology, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309 0345, USA
    Psychon Bull Rev 9:801-6. 2002
    ..These results suggest an important role for verbal abilities in relocation of text information and a lesser role for visuospatial abilities than has previously been assumed...
