  • Tutorial : applying machine learning in behavioral research 

    Turgeon, Stéphanie; Lanovaz, Marc (Springer, 2020-11-10)
    Machine-learning algorithms hold promise for revolutionizing how educators and clinicians make decisions. However, researchers in behavior analysis have been slow to adopt this methodology to further develop their understanding of human behavior and ...
  • Artificial intelligence for the measurement of vocal stereotypy 

    Dufour, Marie-Michèle; Lanovaz, Marc; Cardinal, Patrick (Wiley, 2020-11-03)
    Both researchers and practitioners often rely on direct observation to measure and monitor behavior. When these behaviors are too complex or numerous to be measured in vivo, relying on direct observation using human observers increases the amount of ...
  • How many tiers do we need? Type I errors and power in multiple baseline designs 

    Lanovaz, Marc; Turgeon, Stéphanie (Springer, 2020-07-29)
    Design quality guidelines typically recommend that multiple baseline designs include at least three demonstrations of effects. Despite its widespread adoption, this recommendation does not appear grounded in empirical evidence. The main purpose of ...
  • Genetic and environmental influences on developmental trajectories of adolescent alcohol use 

    Zheng, Yao; Brendgen, Mara; Dionne, Ginette; Boivin, Michel; Vitaro, Frank (Springer, 2019-01-31)
    Adolescent alcohol use demonstrates distinct developmental trajectories with different times of onset, levels, and rates of growth. Twin research on adolescent alcohol use has shown that genetic influences are consistent with a gradual growth of ...
  • The CODAT wins project : the current status and recent findings of collaborative project of development of anthropometrical measures in twins 

    Silventoinen, Karri; Brendgen, Mara; Vitaro, Frank (2019-07-31)
    The COllaborative project of Development of Anthropometrical measures in Twins (CODATwins) project is a large international collaborative effort to analyze individual-level phenotype data from twins in multiple cohorts from different environments. The ...
  • The effect of contextual risk factors on the effectiveness of brief personality‐targeted interventions for adolescent alcohol use and misuse : a cluster‐randomized trial 

    Edalati, Hanie; Afzali, Mohammad H.; Castellanos Ryan, Natalie; Conrod, Patricia (Wiley, 2019-03-13)
    Background A range of school‐based prevention programs has been developed and used to prevent, delay, or reduce alcohol use among adolescents. Most of these programs have been evaluated at the community‐level impact. However, the effect of contextual ...
  • Does shyness interact with peer group affiliation in predicting substance use in adolescence? 

    Lemyre, Alexandre; Poliakova, Natalia; Vitaro, Frank; Tremblay, Richard Ernest; Boivin, Michel; Bélanger, Richard E. (American Psychological Association, 2017-11-20)
    Cigarette use and binge drinking are risky behaviors emerging during adolescence. Although many beneficial factors are well documented, studies linking shyness to substance use are somehow conflicting, which may be due to the contribution of moderators. ...
  • Friendships and deviancy training in young children 

    Salazar, Stefanie; Boivin, Michel; Vitaro, Frank; Cantin, Stéphane; Forget-Dubois, Nadine; Brendgen, Mara; Dionne, Ginette; Tremblay, Richard Ernest (Emerald, 2015-04-13)
    Purpose The purpose of this study was to test a new approach to deviancy training, that is, the shaping and reinforcing of disruptive behaviors in social interaction, which considers not only reinforcement, but also the modeling processes involved, ...
  • Birth size and gestational age in opposite-sex twins as compared to same-sex twins : an individualbased pooled analysis of 21 cohorts 

    Jelenkovic, Aline; Sund, Reijo; Yokoyama, Yoshie; Hur, Yoon-Mi; Ullemar, Vilhelmina; Almqvist, Catarina; Magnusson, Patrik KE; Willemsen, Gonneke; Bartels, Meike; Van Beijsterveldt, Catharina EM; Bogl, Leonie-Helen; Pietiläinen, Kirsi H; Vuoksimaa, Eero; Ji, Fuling; Ning, Feng; Pang, Zengchang; Nelson, Tracy L.; Whitfeld, Keith E.; Rebato, Esther; Llewellyn, Clare H.; Fisher, Abigail; Bayasgalan, Gombojav; Narandalai, Danshiitsoodol; Bjerregaard-Andersen, Morten; Beck-Nielsen, Henning; Sodemann, Morten; Tarnoki, Adam D.; Tarnoki, David L.; Ooki, Syuichi; Stazi, Maria A.; Fagnani, Corrado; Brescianini, Sonia; Dubois, Lise; Boivin, Michel; Brendgen, Mara; Dionne, Ginette; Vitaro, Frank; Cutler, Tessa L.; Hopper, John L.; Krueger, Robert F.; McGue, Matt; Shandell, Pahlen; Craig, Jefrey M.; Safery, Richard; Haworth, Claire MA; Plomin, Robert; Knafo-Noam, Ariel; Mankuta, David; Abramson, Lior; Burt, S.

    It is well established that boys are born heavier and longer than girls, but it remains unclear whether birth size in twins is affected by the sex of their co-twin. We conducted an individual-based pooled analysis of 21 twin cohorts in 15 countries ...
  • Differential negative reinforcement of other behavior to increase compliance with wearing an anti-strip suit 

    Compliance with wearing a medical device
    Wheatley, Tara L.; Goulet, Mélanie; Mann, Kathryn; Lanovaz, Marc (Wiley, 2019-08-27)
    Using a changing-criterion design, we replicated and extended a study (Cook, Rapp, & Schulze, 2015) on differential negative reinforcement of other behavior (DNRO). More specifically, educational assistants implemented DNRO to teach a 12-year-old boy ...
