Micro-Valences: Perceiving Affective Valence in Everyday Objects

Sophie Lebrecht, Moshe Bar, Lisa Feldman Barrett, Michael J. Tarr
2012 Frontiers in Psychology  
Assigning affective values to mental constructs is not a new concept.  ...  In this sense, valence is not a label applied after the fact to perceptual entities, but rather is an intrinsic element of visual perception with the same mental status as other object properties.  ...  Conflict of Interest Statement: The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest  ...

Towards a quantitative bond valence description of coordination spheres – the concepts of valence entropy and valence diversity coordination numbers

Piotr A. Guńka, Janusz Zachara
2019 Acta Crystallographica. Section B: Structural Science, Crystal Engineering and Materials  
The unexpected close relationship of n VECN to Shannon entropy and n VDCN to diversity are revealed and the names of the new coordination numbers are taken therefrom.  ...  Their originality stems from the fact that they are the first definitions based solely on bond valences. The expressions for them are derived from their definitions and their properties are studied.  ...  Therefore, we propose new approaches to the issue based on bond valence model and define two original CN concepts aiming at easing some of the above mentioned difficulties.  ...

Objecthood, Agency and Mutualism in Valenced Farm Animal Environments

Ian Colditz
2018 Animals  
The predictive brain model of sensory perception and motor action (the Bayesian brain model) and its recent extension to account for anticipatory, predictive control of physiological activities is described  ...  Through these processes, aspects of the environment acquire a negative or positive character: that is the environment becomes valenced.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The author declares no conflict of interest.  ...

The Allocation of Valenced Percepts Onto 3D Space

Fernando Marmolejo-Ramos, Artin Arshamian, Carlos Tirado, Raydonal Ospina, Maria Larsson
2019 Frontiers in Psychology  
We believe these results are significant in that the CC can be used as a new tool to diagnose emotion-related disorders.  ...  The current study aimed at investigating whether valenced perceptual stimuli are positioned onto 3D space akin to the way valenced concepts are positioned.  ...  The authors thank Susan Brunner for proofreading the manuscript. RO thanks to CNPq and FACEPE Brazil. The authors also thank the referees for their comments and suggestions.  ...

Technology Adoption by Groups: A Valence Perspective

Suprateek Sarker, Joseph Valacich, Saonee Sarker
2005 Journal of the AIS  
In this paper, we draw on existing literature about groups, technology characteristics, and valence to conceptualize a model of technology adoption by groups (referred to as the TAG model).  ...  We view the TAG phenomenon as a process of communication and negotiation in which analytically distinct factors-such as the individual members' a priori attitudes toward the technology, the majority subgroup's  ...  About the authors His research focuses on the use of qualitative methodologies to study phenomena such as BPR/ERP implementation, global virtual teamwork, ISD, and M-Commerce.  ...

Synergetic Properties of Chinese Verb Valency

Song Gao, Hongxin Zhang, Haitao Liu
2013 Journal of Quantitative Linguistics  
Finally, based on these findings, we present a synergetic model (control cycle) of Chinese verb valency.  ...  The results show that the rank-frequency distributions of both valency and polysemy abide by a power-law distribution and that valency and polysemy of these verbs abide by the Good distribution and the  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work is supported by the National Social Science Foundation of China (11&ZD188 and 13CYY040).  ...

Accounting for graded structure in adjective categories with valence-based opposition relationships

Simon De Deyne, Wouter Voorspoels, Steven Verheyen, Daniel J. Navarro, Gert Storms
2013 Language, Cognition and Neuroscience  
A formal similarity-based model using exemplars accounted for the graded structure by effectively discarding the valence differences between adjectives in the similarity representation through dimensional  ...  We derived a low-dimensional similarity representation for adjective categories and found that valence differences in adjectives constitute an important organizing principle in this similarity space.  ...  One of the central questions in cognitive science is how people mentally represent categories of objects, events and relationships between entities in the world.  ...

Valence asymmetries in attitude ambivalence

Aaron I. Snyder, Zakary L. Tormala
2017 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology  
Interestingly, though, these models overwhelmingly assume that this relationship is independent of valence.  ...  Existing models of ambivalence suggest that as the number of conflicting reactions (e.g., attitude components) increases, so too does the experience of ambivalence.  ...  The panels themselves reflect predictions made by (A) classic models of ambivalence, (B) a model incorporating only negativity bias, (C) a model incorporating only positivity offset, and (D) a model incorporating  ...
