Measurement Validity of Tests for Implicit Negative Bias
Excerpt: The study by Terbeck et al. (2012) that was published in Psychopharmacology, Online First concluded that propranolol reduces implicit negative racial bias. However, this conclusion is not supported by the study because the implicit association test (IAT) (Greenwald et al. 2009) has not been sufficiently validated and because the claim for clinical treatment due to amygdala suppression is unsupported.
