  • Using the same procedure that previous researchers used to test North Americans, Study 1 showed that compared to North Americans, Japanese discount more steeply a partner's outcomes compared to their own future outcomes, whereas the decrease in the subjective value of the partner's outcomes accelerates less as a function of social distance.

  • determinants
  • Genetic research on addiction touches on sensitive questions about the determinants of human behavior, the balance between freedom and determinism, and the extent to which we share our genetic identity with other members of our family and our broader social community. (jhu.edu)
  • aims
  • We address the following aims: (1) EST research shows that a low-status label reduces one's influence in cooperative goal oriented interactions. (columbia.edu)

  • stigmatization
  • Responsible communication of research findings is essential to prevent common misunderstandings about the role of genetics in addiction liability, to prevent its premature or inappropriate use, and to reduce discrimination and stigmatization experienced by addicted individuals. (jhu.edu)
  • examine

  • To examine the cultural similarities and differences in social discounting in more detail, Study 2 tested Japanese and Germans and found that the hyperbolic with exponent model fitted the participants' discounting behaviors better than the other models, except for the loss condition in Germans where the utility of the q -exponential model was indicated. (frontiersin.org)

  • behavioral

  • individuals
  • It is hypothesized that the zero order relationship often found between parent status and well-being may be due to (1) a fundamental difference in the social support experiences of older parents and older childless individuals, (2) different levels of stress among these groups, or (3) the potential of friends to be of greater importance in assuring well-being in older age than family. (cambridge.org)
  • First, rather than focusing on attitudes of stigmatizers or adaptations of the stigmatized, we focus directly on an area that has been under-represented in existing research - interpersonal interactions between stigmatized and non-stigmatized individuals. (columbia.edu)
  • Through social learning, individuals gain information by observation or interaction with other animals [ 8 ]. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • More research is needed to determine the impact of genetic explanations on addicted individuals, treatment-seeking behavior, and on public attitudes towards addicted persons. (jhu.edu)
  • Alcohol
  • In this paper, we evaluate the status of genetic research on alcohol dependence as background to addressing the ethical issues raised in conducting research on addiction and the application of that research to the formulation of public policies. (jhu.edu)
  • The increasing evidence that addiction to alcohol has a genetic contribution from studies of families has given rise to research to improve our biological understanding of addiction and thereby our ability to more effectively treat those afflicted and possibly prevent addictive disorders. (jhu.edu)
  • interactions
  • EST research shows how status hierarchies based on characteristics such as gender and race are reproduced in social interactions, as well as how those hierarchies can be altered. (columbia.edu)
  • Race is not an objective, stable, homogenous category but is produced and animated by changing, complicated and uneven interactions between social processes and individual experience (Gunaratnam 2003: 8). (scielo.org.za)
