This dataset empirically investigated the comprehensive model related to post-purchase behavior regarding online shopping in North Cyprus. The dataset has collected via a self-administered questionnaire at Girne American University. Then, the dataset evaluated by using 354 participants. In which several techniques used for hypothesis testing, and structural equation modeling (SEM) was applied using IBM (SPSS and AMOS).

Early-life status epilepticus produces a high-functioning autism-like phenotype: deficit in social interaction and vocalization, enhanced anxiety, no cognitive impairment and altered functional connectivity within the hippocampus (CA3-CA1) and between the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. In this study, we used a social memory paradigm to evaluate social memory and social motivation, high demand cognitive tasks (Barnes and Octagonal mazes) to evaluate working memory, reference memory and cognitive flexibility followed by gene and protein expression of molecules related to social behavior, reward system and synapse function. At postnatal day 9, male Wistar rats were subjected to pilocarpine-induced early-life status epilepticus (380mg/kg, i.p.) and the control group received 0.9% saline (0.1 ml/10 g). In adulthood, animals were probed to social recognition memory and cognitive function followed by gene and protein expressions in hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygdala and striatum. In social recognition paradigm, experimental animals spent lower time interacting with the same conspecific, with no enhancement as the familiar animal was replaced by a novel one. In training phase of Barnes maze, the latency to get into the escape cage did not differ between groups. In test phase, as the escape cage has been removed, the time to reach the escape hole did not differ between groups, but the experimental group distributed more evenly the time exploring the peripheral zones the maze, rather than the control group that stayed next to the target hole. In training (TRP) and test phases (TP) of the octagonal maze task, both groups spent similar time to complete the task, but the experimental group exhibited fewer working memory errors during TP with no difference in reference memory errors. The gene expression for oxytocin, oxytocin receptors, dopamine receptors (DR1 and DR2), synapsin and NT3 did not change in experimental group that exhibited higher level of oxytocin in hypothalamus and lower expression of its receptor in hippocampus.

TheThe present study examined the role of working memory in an evaluative priming paradigm, in which primes that are affectively congruent or incongruent are presented prior to a target stimulus. Studies typically observe a congruity effect, whereby responses to a congruent target-prime pairing are facilitated. However, research has also demonstrated an incongruity effects: whereby incongruent target-prime pairings are facilitated. It is theorized that the incongruity effect occurs due to a corrective mechanism. To examine the role of working memory in the evaluative priming, a within-subjects design was employed, in which working memory load, congruency, and target valence were manipulated. Firstly, the findings indicated an incongruity effect. Secondly, it seems that working memory is the cognitive resource implicated in expectancy-based strategies, as a working memory load reduced accuracy and increased response latencies to targets. Thirdly, the results revealed that the incongruity effect is attenuated by working memory load, suggesting that the incongruity effect is dependent on the availability of cognitive resources. The study also observed a happy face target recognition advantage. One implication of the present study is that that evaluative priming can occur via expectancy-based strategies when SOAs are long.

The aim of this study was to validate the Spanish version of the Defensive Pessimism Questionnaire. A sample of undergraduate students (N = 539) was measured on defensive pessimism using the Defensive Pessimism Questionnaire (DPQ), optimism and pessimism using the Life Orientation Test (LOT), positive and negative affect using the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule, and anxiety using the trait subscale of the State and Trait Anxiety Inventory. A Spanish version of the DPQ (DPQ-SV) is presented. Exploratory and Robust Confirmatory Factor Analysis had a bi-dimensional structure (Reflectivity and Negative Expectation). Omega coefficient showed a high internal consistency and the temporal stability was high in each dimension. Both DPQ-SV subscales (Negative Expectation and Reflectivity) showed adequate convergence with LOT-optimism and LOT-pessimism. Reflectivity showed adequate criterion validity with trait-anxiety and negative affect, but inadequate criterion validity with positive affect. Negative Expectation showed excellent criterion validity with trait-anxiety and negative affect and good criterion validity with positive affect. Finally, mediation analysis showed that Negative Expectation had a significant indirect mediating effect between trait-anxiety and negative affect. Reflectivity had a significant indirect mediating effect between trait-anxiety and negative and positive affect. Analysis of the psychometric properties of the DPQ-SV subscale scores showed that it is a two factor adequate measurement tool for its use in this type of samples.

The aim of this study is to utilize reverse engineering approach for the identification of the elements and phases available on the commercial CERMET inserts with the help of characterization techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), and X-Ray Deposition (XRD). Four commercial CERMET inserts were investigated in this research work and the effect of the composition and phases are related to it’s tool wear mechanism and performance. Each CERMET insert is used to perform a turning process on a CNC lathe for machining stainless steel (SS) under dry condition at a fix cutting length interval. Once it completes machining for a fix cutting length, the CERMET insert is taken out to investigate its wear mechanism with the help of SEM, EDS, XRD and using focus-variation microscope (Alicona). A correlation study is performed to relate progressive tool wear mechanism with elements and their relevant phases of various carbides. The approach of corelating wear property with the phase content will contribute for understanding of the wear mechanism under such extreme machining conditions. It will serve as a reference for the improvement of the performance of these CERMET inserts for such harsh machining condition by development of protective coatings for these CERMET inserts based on the identification of the composition and phases that improves tool life and reduces wear.

This raw data is related to the identification of proteins produced directly into water by three Pseudomonas strains: Fl4BN1, Fl4BN2 and Fl5BN2. The folder entitled "MS" contains all the Mascot searches linked to Data in Brief Table 5. The folder entitled "MS-MS" contains two subfolders linked to Data in Brief Table 6-11: "NCBI" and "SwissProt" related to searches performed using NCBI and SwissProt databases, respectively. The search was carried out in the "bacteria" database reviewed (_R) or not (_NR) and in the "P. protegens" database.
