Cognitive Paradigm Ontology

"The use of alternate and even competitive terminologies can often impede scientific discoveries. While the experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience literature may refer to certain behavioral paradigms by name (eg. the Stroop paradigm or the Sternberg paradigm) or by function (a working memory task, a visual attention task), these paradigms can vary tremendously in the stimuli that are presented to the subject, the response expected from the subject, and the instructions given to the subject.

Emotion Ontology

"The Swiss Centre for Affective Sciences, in collaboration with the University at Buffalo, is developing an Emotion Ontology to describe affective phenomena. This project is a branch of the broader Mental Functioning ontology effort. The Centre brings together scientists from neuroscience and psychology, together with economists, historians, philosophers as well as scholars in the humanities, in a multi-disciplinary effort to understand how affective phenomena, such as motives, attitudes, moods, and emotions, affect the individual and society.

Mental Functioning Ontology

"The Mental Functioning Ontology is an ontology for mental functioning, including mental processes such as cognition and traits such as intelligence, and related diseases and disorders. It is developed in the context of the Ontology for General Medical Science and the Basic Formal Ontology. The project is being developed in collaboration between the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and the University at Buffalo, USA. The project is being developed with full involvement of all relevant communities, following best practices laid out by the OBO Foundry.

PsycINFO Classification Categories and Codes

"Every record in PsycINFO® databases receives a classification code, which is used to categorize the document according to the primary subject matter. These classification codes can help you target your search by allowing you to restrict retrieval to a specific category. There are 22 major categories and 135 subcategories, and a list of codes. Each record is assigned to one or two classifications.
NOTE: This classification code system was designed to describe the content of the PsycINFO database, not the field of psychology."

Tesauro ISOC de Psicología

"La versión que se presenta del TESAURO ISOC DE PSICOLOGIA, al igual que la anterior, puede mejorarse, ya que el tesauro, aunque es un lenguaje controlado, tiene que reflejar el lenguaje natural de una disciplina y, por tanto, debe incorporar los términos nuevos que vayan apareciendo y eliminar los que caigan en desuso; por tanto está sujeto a futuras actualizaciones. Esta edición, como la anterior, se considera que puede ser una herramienta muy útil para todos los Centros de Documentación y Bibliotecas especializadas en Psicología o Ciencias afines."

"The version presented by the TESAURO ISOC DE PSICOLOGIA, like the previous one, can be improved, since the thesaurus, although it is a controlled language, has to reflect the natural language of a discipline and, therefore, must incorporate the terms This issue, like the previous one, is considered to be a very useful tool for all Documentation Centers and Libraries specializing in Psychology or related sciences .
