Lack of affective priming indicates attitude-behaviour discrepancy for COVID-19 affiliated words


Posted: 2021-11-10 20:00:00
The ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in the enforcement of national public health safety measures including precautionary behaviours such as border closures, movement restrictions, total or partial lockdowns, social distancing, and face mask mandates in order to reduce the spread of this disease. The current study uses affective priming, an indirect behavioural measure of implicit attitude, to evaluate COVID-19 attitudes. Explicitly, participants rated their overall risk perception associated with contracting COVID-19 significantly lower compared to their perception of necessary precautions and overall adherence to public health measures. During baseline trials, participants explicitly rated COVID-19 affiliated words as unpleasant, similar to traditional unpleasant word stimuli. Despite rating the COVID-19 affiliated words as unpleasant, affective priming was not observed for congruent prime-target COVID-19 affiliated word pairs when compared to congruent prime-target pleasant and unpleasant words. Overall, these results provide quantitative evidence that COVID-19 affiliated words do not invoke the same implicit attitude response as traditional pleasant and unpleasant word stimuli, despite conscious explicit rating of the COVID-19 words as unpleasant. This reduction in unpleasant attitude towards COVID-19 related words may contribute towards decreased fear-related behaviours and increased incidences of risky-behaviour facilitating the movement of the virus.

COVID-19治験ワクチンのNIH臨床試験が始まる。ワクチンはウイルスのスパイクタンパク質をコードするmRNA。

シアナのカイザーパーマネンテワシントン健康研究所(KPWHRI)で、コロナウイルス2019(COVID-19)を予防するために設計された治験ワクチンを評価する第1相臨床試験が始った。国立衛生研究所の一部である国立アレルギー感染症研究所(NIAID)が試験に資金を提供している。KPWHRIはNIAIDの感染症臨床研究コンソーシアムの一部だ。このオープンラベル試験では、18歳から55歳までのシアトルを拠点とする45人の健康な成人ボランティアが約6週間に渡り協力する。2020年3月16日に治験ワクチンを最初の参加者に接種…
