Why can’t we be more idiographic in our research? It is the individual organism that is the principle unit of analysis in the science of psychology (Barlow & Nock, 2009).
I am currently doing a joint PhD between the Univ. Grenoble Alpes (France) and the Ghent University (Belgium). My research is about the psychophysiology of verbal rumination, considered as a dysfunctional kind of inner speech.
Besides, I feel very concerned by the issue of making our research more transparent, more reproducible and more sustainable. I am involved in this project, in which we try to implement new recipes for doing science in a different way.

Why can’t we be more idiographic in our research? It is the individual organism that is the principle unit of analysis in the science of psychology (Barlow & Nock, 2009).
As put by Gelman et al. (2013, page 148): ‘because a probability model can fail to reflect the process that generated the data in any number of ways, posterior predictive p-values can be computed for a variety of test quantities in order to evaluate more than one possible model failure’.
What is the difference between the errors and the residuals ? What does it mean for a model to predict something ? What is a link function ? In the current post, we use four R functions (viz., the predict
, fitted
, residuals
and simulate
functions) to illustrate the mechanisms and assumptions of the generalised linear model.
In the current post, we present and compare three methods of obtaning an estimation of the ICC in multilevel logistic regression models.
I have strong doubts that someone reading a blog called barely significant in this troubled period might have escaped the saga of the summer. However, as this story relates closely to the name of this blog and to the motivations behind its creation, I could not help myself to write a summary of this saga (or of its beginning, at least), to inform any unfortunate people that might have missed it.
I teach the following courses at Univ. Grenoble Alpes:
A great compendium of indispensable ressources on MLMs can be found on Social by selection.
The last chapters of Broadening Your Statistical Horizons by J. Legler and P. Roback.
Justin Esarey’s enlightening lectures on Bayesian statistics (amongst other things), and the Learn Bayes website.
Statistical rethinking lectures by Richard McElreath on youtube and associated contents.
Bayesian data analysis and cognitive modeling by Michael Franke & Fabian Dablander (slides).
Bayesian Basics, wonderful introduction to Bayesian data analysis by Michael Clark here. See also his other tutorials here.
