The Meaning of Cognitive Conflict across Cultures: Pilot Study

Prior cultural psychological research presents conflicting evidence on how East Asians vs. Westerners react to expectancy-violating information. This seed grant supports an initial study among participants in Hong Kong to test that pupil dilation (PD) is a measure of attentional arousal in response to simple and factual error feedback, via a replication and extension of Sleegers et al. 2020 (in press). Using an objective physiological measure of arousal (pupil dilation, PD) to measure expectancy-violation and an objective measure of hindsight bias, this study will first test that PD is associated with error feedback.
