Wiki Version:
<p><strong>Description</strong></p> <p>Two groups of Illinois Instititute of Technology undergraduate students, under the supervision of Professor Nicole Legate, Ph.D., and Sean Rafajko (clinical psychology Ph.D. student), will be conducting direct replication studies of Eskine, K. J., Kacinik, N. A., & Prinz, J. J. (2011) over the course of the Spring 2016 semester.</p> <p>The first group of undergraduates is composed of Cesar Armas, Lindsay Zasadzinski, Emily Darnell and Reya Green. The second group of undergraduates is composed of Joshua Guberman, Silvia Nunez, Xing "Chris" Chen, and Michelle Shelby.</p> <p>Each group will be conducting their own replication of Eskine et al. (2011), independent of the other group. Both groups will follow the exact procedures of the original authors. </p> <p>This page contains all of the materials provided by the authors of the original study, as well as the logs and videos for each of the two groups of students. Data and analyses will be added over the course of the semester.</p> <p><strong>Original Abstract from Eskine et al. (2011)</strong></p> <blockquote> <p>Can sweet-tasting substances trigger kind, favorable judgments about other people? What about substances that are disgusting and bitter? Various studies have linked physical disgust to moral disgust, but despite the rich and sometimes striking findings these studies have yielded, no research has explored morality in conjunction with taste, which can vary greatly and may differentially affect cognition. The research reported here tested the effects of taste perception on moral judgments. After consuming a sweet beverage, a bitter beverage, or water, participants rated a variety of moral transgressions. Results showed that taste perception significantly affected moral judgments, such that physical disgust (induced via a bitter taste) elicited feelings of moral disgust. Further, this effect was more pronounced in participants with politically conservative views than in participants with politically liberal views. Taken together, these differential findings suggest that embodied gustatory experiences may affect moral processing more than previously thought.</p> </blockquote>
