Experimental Paradigm for Measuring the Effects of Self-distancing in Young Children Amanda Grenell1, Rachel E. White2, Emily O. Prager1, Catherine Schaefer1, Ethan Kross3, Angela L. Duckworth4, Stephanie M. Carlson1 1Insitute of Child Development, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, 2Department of Psychology, Hamilton College, 3Department of Psychology, University of Michigan, 4Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania An experimental paradigm was created to measure the effects of self-distancing in young children (4-6-year-olds). Self-distancing is a process through which individuals adopt a less egocentric perspective. This paradigm has been used to examine the effects of self-distancing on young children's self-regulation.
Moving Upwards: A Simple and Flexible In Vitro Three-dimensional Invasion Assay Protocol Tanner J. McArdle1, Brenda M. Ogle1,2,3,4,5, Felicite K. Noubissi6 1Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 2Stem Cell Institute, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 3Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 4Lillehei Heart Institute, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 5Institute for Engineering in Medicine, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, 6Department of Biology, Jackson State University This protocol describes an inverted vertical invasion assay that could be used to quantify the migration and invasion capabilities of cells in a three-dimensional setting while preserving the cell microenvironment. This assay is suitable for rare and/or sensitive cells.
