EMOTION PERCEPTION IN DIGITALLY MEDIATED COMMUNICATION

As digitally mediated communication (DMC) becomes more ubiquitous, people are faced with the challenge of having to adapt their empathic toolkits to virtual environments. Little, however, is known about the effects of different communication modes (e.g., video, phone, text) on people’s ability to make inferences about others’ emotions in real time. The longer-term effects of DMC on empathic skills also remain poorly understood. In this study, we examine the effects of different modes of digital communication (video, audio, and text) on people’s perceptions of others’ emotions. Open materials

A SIXTY-YEAR LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF VARIATION IN LIFETIME TRAJECTORIES OF SOCIAL SUPPORT

How does people’s tendency to rely on social resources in times of need change across the lifespan? In this study, we use longitudinal data to characterize normative developmental trajectories of social support over the 60 year-period of the 3rd through 8th decades of life.
