Why is this website so boring?
Unpublished papers: I was thinking about some papers we've had difficulty getting published. A few come to mind as studies I like quite a lot; we just can't find a good home for these papers, so I am posting them here:

1. A report on sex difference in language use following romantic breakups.
2. A report on language use as a mediator of the association between attachment anxiety and heart rate reactivity.
3. A report on within-person variation in heart rate variability as a potential index of emotion regulatory effort following the end of marriage.

* Remember, these are our unpublished papers. See our published papers here.
