  • mechanisms

  • patients
  • It has been shown that, due to the nocebo effect, warning patients about side effects of drugs can contribute to the causation of such effects, whether the drug is real or not. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Verbal suggestion can cause hyperalgesia (increased sensitivity to pain) and allodynia (perception of a tactile stimulus as painful) as a result of the nocebo effect. (wikipedia.org)

  • Animals
  • Affect, Animals, and Autists maps connections across performances that question the borders of the human whose neurodiverse experiences have been shaped by the diagnostic label of autism, and animal-human performance relationships that dispute and blur anthropocentric edges. (umich.edu)

  • Not only can it effect other humans but it can also effect animals also. (answers.com)
  • case
  • The limiting case of the Venturi effect is when a fluid reaches the state of choked flow , where the fluid velocity approaches the local speed of sound . (wikipedia.org)
  • The Kerr electro-optic effect, or DC Kerr effect, is the special case in which a slowly varying external electric field is applied by, for instance, a voltage on electrodes across the sample material. (wikipedia.org)
  • The optical Kerr effect, or AC Kerr effect is the case in which the electric field is due to the light itself. (wikipedia.org)
  • The effect is used in this case to fold space at the quantum level, allowing the Spacing Guild's heighliner ships to instantaneously travel far distances across space without actually moving at all. (wikipedia.org)
  • example
  • For example, when a patient anticipates a side effect of a medication, they can suffer that effect even if the "medication" is actually an inert substance. (wikipedia.org)
  • The first example of such an effect was described by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1888, who found that a dielectric material moving through an electric field would become magnetized. (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, the first and most studied example of this effect is the linear magnetoelectric effect . (wikipedia.org)
  • The Seebeck effect is a classic example of an electromotive force (emf) and leads to measurable currents or voltages in the same way as any other emf. (wikipedia.org)
  • direct
  • The use of direct audience-address is one way of disrupting stage illusion and generating the distancing effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • In its most general form, the magnetoelectric effect (ME) denotes any coupling between the magnetic and the electric properties of a material. (wikipedia.org)
  • The California effect and the Brussels effect are a form of 'race to the top' where the most stringent standard has an appeal to companies operating across multiple regulatory environments as it makes global production and exports easier. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • The Seebeck effect is the conversion of heat directly into electricity at the junction of different types of wire. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the southern white rhino is genetically different from other species of African white rhino, the phytoestrogens affect them much differently than other rhinos, such as the one-horned rhinoceros. (redorbit.com)
  • second hand smoke of any kind can affect others to different degrees. (answers.com)
  • take
  • Later my father told me that he been told years ago that I shouldn't take doxycycline as it may affect my hearing, which is of concern, as I only have rather little hearing left in my right ear. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • materials
  • Recently, technological and theoretical progress, driven in large part by the advent of multiferroic materials, triggered a renaissance of these studies and magnetoelectric effect is still heavily investigated. (wikipedia.org)

  • electric
  • The Kerr effect is distinct from the Pockels effect in that the induced index change is directly proportional to the square of the electric field instead of varying linearly with it. (wikipedia.org)
  • These are frequently used to modulate light, since the Kerr effect responds very quickly to changes in electric field. (wikipedia.org)
