New research suggests that guzzling H2O may boost brain power and reaction time. Good old H2O: Water helps us stay slim, keeps our skin supple and smooth, and may even protect our hearts. And now a new study suggests that drinking H2O may have another surprising benefit: improved memory and reaction times. Previous research has shown that mild dehydration can have a negative effect on cognitive performance, and it’s a well known fact that not getting enough water can make us feel sluggish. So researchers at the University of East London and the University of Westminster decided to see how hydration would affect people in various test-taking scenarios.

In the early selection models first proposed by Donald Broadbent and Anne Treisman, attention shuts down or attenuates processing in the unattended ear before the mind can analyze its semantic content. Some of the earliest work in exploring mechanisms of selective attention was performed by Donald Broadbent, who proposed a theory that came to be known as the filter model. In what came to be known as the Deutsch-Norman model, information in the unattended stream is not processed all the way into working memory, as Treisman's model would imply. Daniel Kahneman also proposed a model of attention, but it differs from previous models in that he describes attention not in terms of selection, but in terms of capacity. Those deemed most important by the allocation policy will have the most attention given to them. They adopted a position in line with late selection ...

← When overall reality trumps ‘facts’ and ‘logic’. Pay as much attention to why things are right as you do to why they are wrong →. The people and things that get the most attention are rarely the people and things most deserving of attention. But attention is also very often associated with negative things – we just don’t often “pay attention” to that side of the deal. This is a big deal – most people don’t like to lose control of their identities or their lives. Out-of-control attention can cause stuff like that to happen. By now you’ve probably heard all sorts of horror stories about lottery winners that went bad – people who struck it lucky and instantly got rich, only to find a few years down the line that they became worse off, felt less fulfilled, and often have lost all their winnings; even if they have kept hold on their wealth, still – these winners often end up changing their tune and running away from their status as winners. No longer do you have a semblance of control as to how you present ...

June 2, 2014 Even at infancy, human can visually identify objects that stand out, study finds June 2, 2014 Even by three months of age, babies are visually able to locate objects that stand out from a group, a York University study has found. "This indicates that babies at a very young age are able to selectively extract information from the environment, just like adults." Previously it was unknown how early this form of visual attention developed in infants. The study, Search Asymmetry and Eye Movements in Infants and Adults, recently published online in the journal of Attention, Perception, and Psychophysicsrevealed that infants, like adults, were able to pick out a single R character among increasingly larger groups of P characters. "The aim of the present study was to add to our understanding of infants ' ability to selectively attend to particular items in the presence of competing stimuli by examining the development of selective attention mechanisms involved in visual search, particularly the ...

*  Nick Bradbury: Microsoft, RSS and Attention
... Nick Bradbury Ramblings from the creator of HomeSite, TopStyle, FeedDemon and Glassboard Android. Monday, June 27, 2005 Microsoft, RSS and Attention The big announcement at last week's Gnomedex was the news that Microsoft plans to bake RSS into Longhorn. Unlike Google, Microsoft has joined the conversation via blogs and RSS. One of the most powerful things about RSS is that it breaks information into individual items - bite-size chunks, if you like - which theoretically enables tools and services to find out what you're paying attention to. Now, Microsoft plans to add a common RSS feed list and feed store to Longhorn, which means that instead of requesting feeds via HTTP, aggregators like FeedDemon would request them through Longhorn's RSS APIs - enabling Windows to find out what you're paying attention to. But even though you're paying those services by giving them your attention data, that shouldn't mean that they own it. I fully expect Gmail to add RSS aggregation, enabling Google to better ...

One of the reasons that Bestmed medical aid is able to offer plans that are affordable is they have been able to keep their operating costs below 6% of their revenue. That kind of administrative discipline not only keeps their plan rates low but also, shows that they pay attention to detail. If a company pays that much attention to detail in their administrative concerns it is safe to assume that they will pay attention to your health concerns as well. What most people do not understand about medical aid schemes is that as a business, Bestmed medical aid will profit more if you are healthy rather than when you are ill.

Here, we used backward masking to prevent awareness of shape singleton primes Experiments 1–4 or color singleton primes Experiment 5. Masked singleton primes nonetheless produced a congruence effect: Congruent singletons indicating the location of subsequent visible targets facilitated responses, in comparison with incongruent singletons at positions away from the ...

So although we can all talk the talk about Casey Anthony, she actually makes some interesting waves online without even trying to do so. For example, I took a look at CNN.com, obviously a “go-to” for news information, but the clear go-to for the final verdict when looking at daily attention metrics. Not since Osama bin Laden’s death has CNN seen a spike like the Casey Anthony trial – proving that both incidents captured the minds of the news hungry regardless of the magnitude. Additionally, the term “Casey Anthony” landed a top 10 referral spot for CNN.com. “Casey Anthony” is one of the only non-branded terms coming to the site at just under 1% of all referrals. This put the term “Casey Anthony” as a large traffic driver to the site, and also kept users on ...

Individual Moral Failure Models: Over the most recent centuries, and some would argue for many centuries before, alcoholism has been regarded as a personal moral failing that required a courageous moral choice to overcome it. While the processes of choice remain crucial to improvement, the model of an immoral person casts the alcoholic as "a bad person trying to become good," in the words of a recovering alcoholic person in our clinic.

... ch. Anomalies in intertemporal choice, time-dependent uncertainty and expected utility - A common approach. Various anomalies in intertemporal choice are explained within a common framework of time-dependent uncertainty and state-dependent expected utility: By considering temporary emotions in addition to the permanent wealth effects associated with the realization of delayed gains and losses, it can be shown that S-shaped probability weighting and hyperbolic discounting will be positively correlated traits, Constant relative risk aversion and time-dependent uncertainty are sufficient to generate a 'sign effect' losses are discounted less than gains, a 'delay/speed-up' asymmetry delays are discounted at higher/lower rates for gains/losses and a 'magnitude effect' for losses larger outcomes are discounted less.

... Working Papers in Economics. No 470: The first time is the hardest: A test of ordering effects in choice experiments Fredrik Carlsson , Morten Raun Mørkbak. and Søren Bøye Olsen. Abstract: This paper addresses the issue of ordering effects in choice experiments, and in particular how learning processes potentially affect respondents’ stated preferences in a sequence of choice sets. In a case study concerning food quality attributes of chicken breast filets, we find evidence of ordering effects in a sequence of 16 choice sets, where the last 8 choice sets are identical to the first 8. The overall preference structure is found to differ significantly between the two identical sequences of choice sets, and significant increases in marginal WTP are found for two out of four attributes. We find a reduction in the error variance for the last 8 choice sets relative to the first 8 choice sets. In particular, this difference is ascribed to the first choice set obtaining a significantly higher error ...

But, says Parkinson, the loss of individual choice that comes with mandatory health programs is often not formally included in this trade-off, because there has been no way to measure it. Choice experiments Parkinson and colleagues have now developed a method that can put a dollar value on this loss of choice, using what are known as discrete choice experiments. She and colleagues ...

... Childhood Obesity. Childhood obesity: Healthy lifestyle choices are critical. November 16, 2008. Lloyd Werk A recent study that appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that the rate of obesity among children has leveled off after 25 years of steady growth. In the United States, the proportion of children who are overweight has more than doubled since 1977. It is staggering to realize that one third of the children are now considered overweight or obese based on the common screening tool of Body Mass Index. As these children grow older, they have a higher risk of being an obese adult. Why are we seeing an epidemic of childhood obesity. There are multiple contributors, such as changes in eating habits fast food that is calorie dense, skipped breakfasts, and higher portion sizes, the adoption of sport drinks and other sugary beverages to quench thirst, as well as replacing physical activities with an assortment of DVD's and video games. In order to achieve this goal, it ...

Work used to include more physical activity. Nevertheless, researchers found that weight gain issues haven t surfaced due to less physical activity each day. Participants provided researchers with self-reported amounts of daily physical activity that, in turn, were broken down to account for activities due to work, housework, active transportation and recreation. Without getting too bogged down in statistics, the researchers quantified physical activity in terms of something called metabolic equivalent task hours MET-h/d. In terms of weight, the researchers found that a person needed to accumulate an additional 14 MET-h/d to affect a pound of body weight. To put this all another way, to lose 10 pounds from physical activity would require you to be six times more active than the average person in this study; to lose ...

(1/13264) Competitive mechanisms subserve attention in macaque areas V2 and V4.

It is well established that attention modulates visual processing in extrastriate cortex. However, the underlying neural mechanisms are unknown. A consistent observation is that attention has its greatest impact on neuronal responses when multiple stimuli appear together within a cell's receptive field. One way to explain this is to assume that multiple stimuli activate competing populations of neurons and that attention biases this competition in favor of the attended stimulus. In the absence of competing stimuli, there is no competition to be resolved. Accordingly, attention has a more limited effect on the neuronal response to a single stimulus. To test this interpretation, we measured the responses of neurons in macaque areas V2 and V4 using a behavioral paradigm that allowed us to isolate automatic sensory processing mechanisms from attentional effects. First, we measured each cell's response to a single stimulus presented alone inside the receptive field or paired with a second receptive field stimulus, while the monkey attended to a location outside the receptive field. Adding the second stimulus typically caused the neuron's response to move toward the response that was elicited by the second stimulus alone. Then, we directed the monkey's attention to one element of the pair. This drove the neuron's response toward the response elicited when the attended stimulus appeared alone. These findings are consistent with the idea that attention biases competitive interactions among neurons, causing them to respond primarily to the attended stimulus. A quantitative neural model of attention is proposed to account for these results.  (+info)

(2/13264) Cerebellar Purkinje cell simple spike discharge encodes movement velocity in primates during visuomotor arm tracking.

Pathophysiological, lesion, and electrophysiological studies suggest that the cerebellar cortex is important for controlling the direction and speed of movement. The relationship of cerebellar Purkinje cell discharge to the control of arm movement parameters, however, remains unclear. The goal of this study was to examine how movement direction and speed and their interaction-velocity-modulate Purkinje cell simple spike discharge in an arm movement task in which direction and speed were independently controlled. The simple spike discharge of 154 Purkinje cells was recorded in two monkeys during the performance of two visuomotor tasks that required the animals to track targets that moved in one of eight directions and at one of four speeds. Single-parameter regression analyses revealed that a large proportion of cells had discharge modulation related to movement direction and speed. Most cells with significant directional tuning, however, were modulated at one speed, and most cells with speed-related discharge were modulated along one direction; this suggested that the patterns of simple spike discharge were not adequately described by single-parameter models. Therefore, a regression surface was fitted to the data, which showed that the discharge could be tuned to specific direction-speed combinations (preferred velocities). The overall variability in simple spike discharge was well described by the surface model, and the velocities corresponding to maximal and minimal discharge rates were distributed uniformly throughout the workspace. Simple spike discharge therefore appears to integrate information about both the direction and speed of arm movements, thereby encoding movement velocity.  (+info)

(3/13264) Spinal cord-evoked potentials and muscle responses evoked by transcranial magnetic stimulation in 10 awake human subjects.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TCMS) causes leg muscle contractions, but the neural structures in the brain that are activated by TCMS and their relationship to these leg muscle responses are not clearly understood. To elucidate this, we concomitantly recorded leg muscle responses and thoracic spinal cord-evoked potentials (SCEPs) after TCMS for the first time in 10 awake, neurologically intact human subjects. In this report we provide evidence of direct and indirect activation of corticospinal neurons after TCMS. In three subjects, SCEP threshold (T) stimulus intensities recruited both the D wave (direct activation of corticospinal neurons) and the first I wave (I1, indirect activation of corticospinal neurons). In one subject, the D, I1, and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously, and in another subject, the I1 and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously. In the remaining five subjects, only the I1 wave was recruited first. More waves were recruited as the stimulus intensity increased. The presence of D and I waves in all subjects at low stimulus intensities verified that TCMS directly and indirectly activated corticospinal neurons supplying the lower extremities. Leg muscle responses were usually contingent on the SCEP containing at least four waves (D, I1, I2, and I3).  (+info)

(4/13264) Augmentation is a potentiation of the exocytotic process.

Short-term synaptic enhancement is caused by an increase in the probability with which synaptic terminals release transmitter in response to presynaptic action potentials. Since exocytosed vesicles are drawn from a readily releasable pool of packaged transmitter, enhancement must result either from an increase in the size of the pool or an elevation in the fraction of releasable vesicles that undergoes exocytosis with each action potential. We show here that at least one major component of enhancement, augmentation, is not caused by an increase in the size of the readily releasable pool but is instead associated with an increase in the efficiency with which action potentials induce the exocytosis of readily releasable vesicles.  (+info)

(5/13264) Multiple point electrical stimulation of ulnar and median nerves.

A computer-assisted method of isolating single motor units (MUs) by multiple point stimulation (MPS) of peripheral nerves is described. MPS was used to isolate 10-30 single MUs from thenar and hypothenar muscles of normal subjects and patients with entrapment neuropathies, with the original purpose of obtaining a more representative mean motor unit potential for estimating the number of MUs in a muscle. The two important results that evolved from MPS however, were: (1) in the absence of 'alternation' MUs were recruited in an orderly pattern from small to large, and from longer to shorter latencies by graded electrical stimulation in both normal and pathological cases, (2) a comparison of the sizes of MUs recruited by stimulation proximal and distal to the elbow suggested that axonal branching can occur in the forearm 200 mm or more proximal to the motor point in intrinsic hand muscles.  (+info)

(6/13264) Electrophysiological evidence for tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channels in slowly conducting dural sensory fibers.

A tetrodotoxin (TTX)-resistant sodium channel was recently identified that is expressed only in small diameter neurons of peripheral sensory ganglia. The peripheral axons of sensory neurons appear to lack this channel, but its presence has not been investigated in peripheral nerve endings, the site of sensory transduction in vivo. We investigated the effect of TTX on mechanoresponsiveness in nerve endings of sensory neurons that innervate the intracranial dura. Because the degree of TTX resistance of axonal branches could potentially be affected by factors other than channel subtype, the neurons were also tested for sensitivity to lidocaine, which blocks both TTX-sensitive and TTX-resistant sodium channels. Single-unit activity was recorded from dural afferent neurons in the trigeminal ganglion of urethan-anesthetized rats. Response thresholds to mechanical stimulation of the dura were determined with von Frey monofilaments while exposing the dura to progressively increasing concentrations of TTX or lidocaine. Neurons with slowly conducting axons were relatively resistant to TTX. Application of 1 microM TTX produced complete suppression of mechanoresponsiveness in all (11/11) fast A-delta units [conduction velocity (c.v.) 5-18 m/s] but only 50% (5/10) of slow A-delta units (1.5 +info)

(7/13264) Source of inappropriate receptive fields in cortical somatotopic maps from rats that sustained neonatal forelimb removal.

Previously this laboratory demonstrated that forelimb removal at birth in rats results in the invasion of the cuneate nucleus by sciatic nerve axons and the development of cuneothalamic cells with receptive fields that include both the forelimb-stump and the hindlimb. However, unit-cluster recordings from primary somatosensory cortex (SI) of these animals revealed few sites in the forelimb-stump representation where responses to hindlimb stimulation also could be recorded. Recently we reported that hindlimb inputs to the SI forelimb-stump representation are suppressed functionally in neonatally amputated rats and that GABAergic inhibition is involved in this process. The present study was undertaken to assess the role that intracortical projections from the SI hindlimb representation may play in the functional reorganization of the SI forelimb-stump field in these animals. The SI forelimb-stump representation was mapped during gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-receptor blockade, both before and after electrolytic destruction of the SI hindlimb representation. Analysis of eight amputated rats showed that 75.8% of 264 stump recording sites possessed hindlimb receptive fields before destruction of the SI hindlimb. After the lesions, significantly fewer sites (13.2% of 197) were responsive to hindlimb stimulation (P < 0.0001). Electrolytic destruction of the SI lower-jaw representation in four additional control rats with neonatal forelimb amputation did not significantly reduce the percentage of hindlimb-responsive sites in the SI stump field during GABA-receptor blockade (P = 0.98). Similar results were obtained from three manipulated rats in which the SI hindlimb representation was silenced temporarily with a local cobalt chloride injection. Analysis of response latencies to sciatic nerve stimulation in the hindlimb and forelimb-stump representations suggested that the intracortical pathway(s) mediating the hindlimb responses in the forelimb-stump field may be polysynaptic. The mean latency to sciatic nerve stimulation at responsive sites in the GABA-receptor blocked SI stump representation of neonatally amputated rats was significantly longer than that for recording sites in the hindlimb representation [26.3 +/- 8.1 (SD) ms vs. 10.8 +/- 2.4 ms, respectively, P < 0.0001]. These results suggest that hindlimb input to the SI forelimb-stump representation detected in GABA-blocked cortices of neonatally forelimb amputated rats originates primarily from the SI hindlimb representation.  (+info)

(8/13264) Corticofugal amplification of facilitative auditory responses of subcortical combination-sensitive neurons in the mustached bat.

Recent studies on the bat's auditory system indicate that the corticofugal system mediates a highly focused positive feedback to physiologically "matched" subcortical neurons, and widespread lateral inhibition to physiologically "unmatched" subcortical neurons, to adjust and improve information processing. These findings have solved the controversy in physiological data, accumulated since 1962, of corticofugal effects on subcortical auditory neurons: inhibitory, excitatory, or both (an inhibitory effect is much more frequent than an excitatory effect). In the mustached bat, Pteronotus parnellii parnellii, the inferior colliculus, medial geniculate body, and auditory cortex each have "FM-FM" neurons, which are "combination-sensitive" and are tuned to specific time delays (echo delays) of echo FM components from the FM components of an emitted biosonar pulse. FM-FM neurons are more complex in response properties than cortical neurons which primarily respond to single tones. In the present study, we found that inactivation of the entire FM-FM area in the cortex, including neurons both physiologically matched and unmatched with subcortical FM-FM neurons, on the average reduced the facilitative responses to paired FM sounds by 82% for thalamic FM-FM neurons and by 66% for collicular FM-FM neurons. The corticofugal influence on the facilitative responses of subcortical combination-sensitive neurons is much larger than that on the excitatory responses of subcortical neurons primarily responding to single tones. Therefore we propose the hypothesis that, in general, the processing of complex sounds by combination-sensitive neurons more heavily depends on the corticofugal system than that by single-tone sensitive neurons.  (+info)

Is our reaction to stress genetically determined, or do we learn how to respond to stress by observing others?


  • Is our reaction to stress genetically determined, or do we learn how to respond to stress by observing others in our culture by watching television and movies?
  • Our reaction to stress may be genetically predetermined. Such as one child in the family may respond to TV with manifestations of fear (afraid of the dark etc) other children may seem fine. One child may handle the stress of divorce totally different than another child. However, each can learn how to handle stress better. They may have to learn to avoid certain stimuli such as scary movies, arguing etc. As adults we face the same thing...if we didn't learn as children we have to learn as adults how to manage stress.

How can i increase my reaction time and flexibility for goal keeping?


  • How can i increase my reaction time and flexibility for goal keeping? I play as a soccer goal keeper and i need to increase my flexibility and reaction time for high school. Is there any exercises or things i can do to improve this? I could use being able to jump higher and father as well. Thank you.
  • Tie weights to your arms and legs and go about your daily business and when you take them off your reaction times will be crazy! Eat fish to keep your concentration sharp. Not sure about flexibility...... yoga?


What was your reaction to finding out that your children had smoked weed?


  • Or what do you think your reaction would be? Would you confront them? or would you just let it slide?
  • Honestly my reaction would depend on how well he was pulling his weight. Id confront a pot smoking honor student a lot more open-mindedly than if he was a snotty little slacker.


How to know if reaction was a true allergic reaction to Ibuprofen?


  • When my daughter was a toddler she had what we thought was an allergic reaction to ibuprofen. Her eyes swelled shut. Now that she is 12, she gets frequent migraines an she can only take Tylenol, which doesn't work very well. Is there a way to know if she is truly allergic to Ibuprofen?
  • Facial swelling is almost definitely an allergic reaction. You should talk to your pediatrician about the migraines and see if there's a medicine he or she can prescribe for her. It is possible she has or will outgrow the allergy, too. A skin prick test can be conducted to determine whether she's still allergic. I wouldn't put too much hope in that, though. Edit - Absolutely, positively DO NOT give her ibuprofen without getting that allergy test first. Allergic reactions can get worse with each exposure, and the swelling can indicate that she's going into anaphylaxis - and that means it may lead to her not being able to breathe within a very short time of taking the medication.


What is the emergency treatment for an allergic reaction to shellfish?


  • Specifically an anaphylaxic reaction. All the websites seem to say the same thing that such a reaction requires a shot of adrenalin (eppipen) and a trip to the emergency room. I have gone to the emergency room twice for this but it has been a long time and I know they gave me a shot of something when I was there that knocked me out for a little while and I would awaken perfectly fine. I just don't know what was in the shot. Can you help?
  • Linkus86, The nine common priority food allergens are peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, milk, eggs, seafood (fish, crustaceans and shellfish), soy, wheat and sulphites (a food additive). When someone comes in contact with an allergen, the symptoms of a reaction may develop quickly and may rapidly progress from mild to severe. The most severe form of an allergic reaction is called anaphylaxis, which is a hypersensitivity reaction to the ingestion or injection of a substance (a protein or drug) resulting from prior contact with a substance. In other words, it is a severe allergic reaction that may involve the entire body. It can result in trouble breathing, loss of consciousness and even death. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency that requires immediate medical treatment. Currently there is no cure for food allergies. The only option is complete avoidance of the specific allergen. Appropriate emergency treatment for anaphylaxis includes an injection of adrenaline, which is available in an auto-injector device. Adrenaline must be administered as soon as symptoms of a severe allergic reaction appear. The injection must be followed by further treatment and observation in a hospital emergency room. If your doctor/allergist has diagnosed you with a food allergy and prescribed adrenaline, carry it with you all the time and know how to use it.

What is the difference between an allergic reaction and a side effect?


  • I thought maybe I was having an allergic reaction to tylenol but some yahoo answers corrected me and said I maybe having a side effect to the tylenol which cause a rash look to my face. Please tell me what is the difference and what can I do over the counter until I can see a doctor please.
  • An allergic reaction is a specific type of reaction which involves your body's rejection of a protein containing substance. You cannot have an allergic reaction to a non-protein substance eg codeine sulphate. An allergic reaction involves antibodies and antigens. It is the result of repeated exposure to foreign proteins. A side effect is the undesired effect of a medication. The side effect can include an allergic response. For example the main effect of morphine is pain relief however the side effect is constipation. I hope this has helped you differentiate the two.

  • I don't know what caused it but I have an allergic reaction on my face right now. It's really hot, itchy, and bright red. Please help me, I have school pictures tomorrow and I can't show up with a disgusting red face.
  • *Wash your hands and face with soap and water if you know you have come in contact with a substance such as poison ivy or poison oak that causes a rash. The oils from these plants produces an adverse reaction called contact dermatitis. Removing the oils as soon as possible can help you get rid of your face allergic more quickly. *Refrain from wearing makeup or using scented or abrasive products on your face while you have a face allergy. Regardless of the cause of your face allergy, cleansing products and cosmetics can be irritating to skin that is already inflamed, and can prolong the rash. Wash your face with lukewarm water, using only your fingertips as a cleaning tool. *Make an appointment to have your doctor look at your face allergy ,. You may have a bacterial or fungal infection that requires treatment with prescription medications.
