  • physiological
  • Two important processes are evident: The first process is the biological embedding of early experiences, the subject of this symposium, that determines operating ranges of physiological systems for the effects of later experiences, and the second process is the cumulative wear and tear of the physical and social environment on the brain and body acting through the neuroendocrine, autonomic, metabolic, and immune systems. (pnas.org)
  • In humans and other primates, adverse social environments often translate into lasting physiological costs. (pnas.org)
  • Interestingly, many of these rank-associated effects are detectable even in the absence of rank-related asymmetries in access to resources, suggesting that the stress of social subordinacy alone can trigger a physiological response. (pnas.org)

  • Of the demographic and social variables measured, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) had the strongest association with SRH (β total = − 0.125), negatively influencing SRH, and gender also associated with an increase in SRH (β total = 0.092), with the influence of these factors being mediated through other variables in the model.

  • adverse
  • In particular, a large body of work in humans and nonhuman primates indicates that adverse social conditions can have important consequences, both for disease susceptibility in the short term ( 1 ⇓ - 3 ) and for evolutionarily important parameters such as fertility and survival over the long term ( 4 ⇓ ⇓ - 7 ).

  • Service robots are becoming enabling assistive technologies as co-workers and helpers in human-robot interactive social environments. (google.com)
  • However, the first and the most challenging issue to deploy service robots in human populated environments is how to guarantee human safety and comfort in human-robot shared workspaces. (google.com)
  • Human risks and their inconveniences when working in an interactive social environment essentially come from unavoidable attack of the robots due to malfunctioning operations caused by either misunderstanding and misinterpreting information extracted from sensing and perception or failures of path planning and motion control.
