Title Leukocyte gene regulation and patterns of natural language use.
Organism Homo sapiens
Experiment type Expression profiling by array
Summary Analysis of transcript abundance estimates as a function of demographic, psychometric, and language use features.
Overall design Gene expression profiling was conducted on peripheral blood samples collected from healthy adults in the Atlanta metropolitan area. In addition to background characteristics (age, sex, race/ethnicity, body mass index/BMI, smoking history), participants were also assessed for patterns of natural language use (using the electronically activated recorder system with data processing by Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count software; Mehl, MR, et al. (2001) The Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR): a device for sampling naturalistic daily activities and conversations Behavior Research Methods, Instruments, & Computers 33, 517-523; Pennebaker, JW, Booth, RJ & Francis, ME (2007) Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count: LIWC 2007, and self-report psychometric measures of stress (Cohen, S, Kessler, RC & Underwood Gordon, L (1995) Perceived Stress Scale. In Measuring stress: A guide for health and social scientists (Oxford University Press, New York)), anxiety (Beck, AT, Epstein, N, Brown, G & Steer, RA (1988) An inventory for measuring clinical anxiety: Psychometric properties Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology 56, 893-897), depression (Beck, A, Steer, R & Brown, G (1996) Beck Depression Inventory - Second Edition manual (Psychological Corporation, San Antonio TX)) and loneliness (Russell, D, Peplau, LA & Cutrona, CE (1980) The revised UCLA Loneliness Scale: concurrent and discriminant validity evidence J Pers Soc Psychol. 39, 472-80). Analyses also controlled for variations in the prevalence of distinct leukocyte subsets as indicated by the relative abundance of mRNA encoding CD3D, CD4, CD8A, CD19, CD56/NCAM1, CD16/FCGR3A, and CD14 (each standardized to mean=0/standard deviation=1 for analysis). Derived language metrics include total words spoken (WordCount); average sentence length (WordsPerSentence); frequency of recorded samples in which particpants were talking and were alone; the relative prevalence of 8 general categories of function words (adverbs, articles, auxiliary verbs, conjunctions, negations, prepositions, quantifiers, and impersonal pronouns) and 5 sub-categories of personal pronouns (1st person singular (i), 1st person plural (we), 2nd person singular (you), 3rd person singular (shehe), and 3rd person plural (they)); and the categorical-dynamic index (CDI; Pennebaker, JW, et al. (2014) When small words foretell academic success: the case of college admissions essays, PLoS One 9, e115844). Higher values of each scale score indicate greater levels of stress, anxiety, etc. Dichotomous variables were coded 0=no/absent and 1=yes/present. Valid gene expression data are available for 143 participants.
