Morris Emotional support is critical to well-being, but the factors that influence the effectiveness of such support are not completely understood. Support recipients evaluated each response they received and provided data reflecting their emotional change. Responses that had moderately similar text, language style, and emotional content to the original post were associated with the most beneficial outcomes.
The more similar the topics in posts and responses were, the greater the immediate and lasting benefits of emotional support were. Emotional support seems to be most efficient when a there is a high overlap of meaning between the message of the person who seeks help and the supportive response and b the language used in the supportive response is not oversynchronized with the language of the person who seeks help.
These features might result in lasting emotional change. Genetic Contribution to Variation in Risk Taking: Rao and colleagues conducted a study with twins to estimate the heritability of risk taking and the genetic influence on the brain areas activated during risk-related behaviors.
They tested pairs of young adult twins by asking them to perform a Balloon Analogue Risk Task BART in which they sequentially inflated a virtual balloon that could either grow larger or explode.
All participants also completed a sensation-seeking measure, and a subsample of participants also performed the BART in a functional MRI machine. Monozygotic twins performed more similarly than did dizygotic twins.
Moreover, risk taking correlated with sensation seeking, and These results support a genetic correlation between risk-taking behavior and risk-related brain activation. Heading Through a Crowd Hugh Riddell and Markus Lappe Needless to say, the ability to move accurately through a crowd without causing collisions is essential in daily life.
Riddell and Lappe examined how optic flow and biological motion are processed when they are present at the same time, such as when people have to move through a crowd. In several experiments, they projected images of point-light walkers the movements of which were derived from motion-tracking data of a walking personin which the point lights represented the major joints.
They then asked observers to move a probe line to indicate the direction in which they would move through a crowd of point-light walkers.
The results showed that when point-light displays indicated limb motion as walkers moved through the crowd, visual-heading estimation was facilitated, but when point-light displays indicated limb motion as walkers were standing, visual-heading estimation was negatively affected.
Thus, biological motion might be processed as noise that disrupts optic flow when it is not integrated with actual movement, but it might facilitate optic flow when it is integrated with actual movement. This pattern of results occurred for both stable and unstable environments, suggesting that visually guided navigation can benefit from the information provided by biological motion."The first psychiatrist - the witch doctor - as portrayed by a prehistoric artist in the Cave of Trois Frères, Ariège, France" according to Alexander and Selesnick The History of Psychiatry..
(-: The image belongs to what was once known as the age of the reindeer. Katherine Darton's Notes of the history of mental health care (on the Mind website) begins in 10, BC.
You’ll never get a second chance to make a great first impression.” We’ve all heard that an interviewer, or a stranger at a party, will form an impression of you, your character, your personality — an impression that is nearly .
In this paper, I review three major purposes for arms control negotiations — disarmament, stability, and advantage. In the first part of the paper, I compare the three purposes against the causes of war literature to show that each provides a defensible. This could leave lasting damage on the international game.
Times, Sunday Times () What was the point of a game that had become very one-sided lasting one second longer than it needed to. International news is all repots on stories involving politicians, conflict and revolutions outside of the United States and Israel that affect the world and the Jewish state.
