Effect of selective screening for gestational diabetes. (1/222)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the percentage of pregnant women who would not be screened and the percentage of women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) who would possibly remain undiagnosed if the American Diabetes Association's (ADA's) new selective screening recommendations are used rather than universal screening for GDM. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Since 1987, the University of Michigan Health System has performed universal screening for GDM. In 1997, the ADA recommended that women having all four of the following characteristics need not be screened: age < 25 years, not members of an ethnic/racial group with a high prevalence of diabetes, normal body weight, and no family history of diabetes. We studied a random sample of the 25,118 deliveries at the University of Michigan between 1987 and 1997 to determine the prevalence of these four characteristics in our obstetric population. We also studied the prevalence of these four characteristics in 200 women who were diagnosed with GDM in the Endocrine Testing Unit and delivered at the University of Michigan between 1987 and 1997. RESULTS: Approximately 10-11% of women who delivered possessed all four low-risk characteristics and would not have been screened for GDM according to the new ADA recommendations. Only 4% of women (5 of 141) with GDM who delivered and for whom data on all four characteristics were reported possessed all four low-risk characteristics and would not have been screened. CONCLUSIONS: If the new ADA selective screening recommendations are used, few women with GDM will be missed (4%) but approximately 90% of pregnant women will still need to be screened for GDM.  (+info)

Relationships of fasting and postload glucose levels to sex and alcohol consumption. Are American Diabetes Association criteria biased against detection of diabetes in women? (2/222)

OBJECTIVE: To compare, in men and women, the prevalence of undiagnosed type 2 diabetes assessed using criteria from the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and to investigate risk factors associated with fasting and 2-h postload plasma glucose. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Data from two companion surveys of Europeans, South Asians, and Afro-Caribbeans in west London were used. A total of 4,367 men and women aged 40-64 years who were not known to have diabetes underwent an oral glucose tolerance test after an overnight fast. The prevalence of undiagnosed diabetes was estimated using the ADA (fasting plasma glucose > or = 7.0 mmol/l) and WHO (2-h postload glucose > or = 11.1 mmol/l) criteria for epidemiologic studies. The association of body fat and usual alcohol intake with plasma glucose and diabetes prevalence was assessed. RESULTS: Compared with the WHO criterion, the ADA criterion gave a higher prevalence of diabetes in men (6.4 vs. 4.7%) but a lower prevalence in women (3.3 vs. 4.2%). In Afro-Caribbeans, the sex difference in diabetes prevalence was reversed. Women had significantly lower fasting glucose than men despite higher 2-h glucose levels. Alcohol intake was positively associated with fasting glucose in men and women but not with 2-h glucose levels. CONCLUSIONS: The new ADA criterion, based on fasting glucose alone, does not take account of sex differences in metabolic response to fasting or possible artifactual effects on fasting glucose. With the ADA criterion, alcohol intake was a significant risk factor for diabetes in our study population; this was not the case with the WHO criterion.  (+info)

Properties of LTP induction in the CA3 region of the primate hippocampus. (3/222)

Activity-dependent changes in synaptic strength, such as long-term potentiation (LTP), have been proposed to underlie memory storage in the brains of all mammals, including humans. However, most forms of synaptic plasticity, including LTP, are studied almost exclusively in rodents and related species. Thus, the hypothesis that LTP is important in human memory relies on the assumption that LTP is similar in the primate and rodent brains. We have begun to test this hypothesis by studying the properties and mechanisms of LTP induction in area CA3 of hippocampal slices from cynomolgus monkeys. We have found that LTP can be induced reliably at both mossy fiber-CA3 and collateral/associational-CA3 synapses in the primate brain, and that the properties of LTP induction at these synapses are similar to what we and others have observed in experiments using hippocampal slices from rodents. Also, we have investigated the role of opioids in mossy fiber synaptic transmission and LTP and have found no effect of the opioid antagonist naloxone nor the opioid agonist dynorphin on mossy fiber synaptic transmission or potentiation. These data suggest that LTP in the primate and rat brains has a similar induction mechanism and, thus, that the rodent is a useful animal model in which to study synaptic modification such as LTP.  (+info)

Physiologically realistic formation of autoassociative memory in networks with theta/gamma oscillations: role of fast NMDA channels. (4/222)

Recordings from brain regions involved in memory function show dual oscillations in which each cycle of a low-frequency theta oscillation (5-8 Hz) is subdivided into about seven subcycles by high frequency gamma oscillations (20-60 Hz). It has been proposed (Lisman and Idiart 1995) that such networks are a multiplexed short-term memory (STM) buffer that can actively maintain about seven memories, a capability of human STM. A memory is encoded by a subset of principal neurons that fire synchronously in a particular gamma subcycle. Firing is maintained by a membrane process intrinsic to each cell. We now extend this model by incorporating recurrent connections with modifiable synapses to store long-term memory (LTM). The repetition provided by STM gradually modifies synapses in a physiologically realistic way. Because different memories are active in different gamma subcycles, the formation of autoassociative LTM requires that synaptic modification depend on N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) channels having a time constant of deactivation that is of the same order as the duration of a gamma subcycle (15-50 msec). Many types of NMDA channels have longer time constants (150 msec), as for instance those found in the hippocampus, but both fast and slow NMDA channels are present in cortex. This is the first proposal for the special role of these fast NMDA channels. The STM for novel items must depend on activity-dependent changes intrinsic to neurons rather than recurrent connections, which have not developed the required selectivity. Because these intrinsic mechanisms are not error-correcting, STM will become slowly corrupted by noise. This limits the accuracy with which LTM can become encoded after a single presentation. Accurate encoding of items in LTM can be achieved by multiple presentations, provided different memory items are presented in a varied interleaved order. Our results indicate that a limited memory-capacity STM model can be integrated in the same network with a high-capacity LTM model.  (+info)

Nonassociative and associative modification of head-waving produced by aversive tentacular stimuli in Aplysia. (5/222)

Head-waving, a spontaneously occurring exploratory and appetitive behavior of the marine mollusc Aplysia, provides an opportunity to examine mechanisms of learning expressed in a nonreflexive behavior. The present study explores nonassociative and associative forms of learned modification of head-waving produced using an aversive stimulus as reinforcement. Experiments on intact, freely behaving animals demonstrate that training with electric shock as an aversive unconditioned stimulus, delivered unilaterally to the anterior tentacles, produces a learned shift in head-waving behavior away from the side on which shock was applied. This behavioral change is a novel learned behavioral response that is influenced by the topographic location of an aversive stimulus. Furthermore, training with application of tentacle shock reinforcement, contingent upon the animal's head position, produces operant conditioning of head-waving. Thus, anterior tentacle shock is effective as an aversive reinforcer for both nonassociative and operant learning expressed in the head-waving behavior of Aplysia.  (+info)

Parsing executive processes: strategic vs. evaluative functions of the anterior cingulate cortex. (6/222)

Event-related functional MRI and a version of the Stroop color naming task were used to test two conflicting theories of anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) function during executive processes of cognition. A response-related increase in ACC activity was present when strategic processes were less engaged, and conflict high, but not when strategic processes were engaged and conflict reduced. This is inconsistent with the widely held view that the ACC implements strategic processes to reduce cognitive conflicts, such as response competition. Instead, it suggests that the ACC serves an evaluative function, detecting cognitive states such as response competition, which may lead to poor performance, and representing the knowledge that strategic processes need to be engaged.  (+info)

Mediodorsal thalamic function in scene memory in rhesus monkeys. (7/222)

Three monkeys were trained preoperatively in a scene memory task which is analogous, in some ways, to human episodic memory. The same animals were also trained in object-reward association memory. Following bilateral ablations of almost the entire magnocellular division of the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus, the animals were impaired both in scene memory and in object-reward association memory. These results, combined with recent results in object recognition memory from monkeys with mediodorsal thalamic lesions, show that the impairment produced by this lesion is more general, affecting a broader range of memory tasks, than the impairment which is produced in monkeys by lesions restricted to the hippocampus-fornix-mamillary system. It is also more severe than the effect of lesions limited to the medial part of the magnocellular division of the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus. These findings extend the evidence that the magnocellular division of the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus has an important and general role in memory, and they are consistent with the proposal that lesions of the magnocellular division of that nucleus have their effect by disrupting the function of prefrontal cortex.  (+info)

Associative olfactory learning in the moth Manduca sexta. (8/222)

The proboscis extension response conditioning protocol has been used to explore olfactory-based associative learning in an array of insects. We have monitored a different feeding reflex, which involves activation of the cibarial pump, to demonstrate olfactory learning in the moth Manduca sexta. In the first experiment, four different treatment conditions were used to assess associative (Pavlovian) learning. The results indicate that an excitatory cibarial pump response develops and is retained for at least 24 h only when odor is forward-paired with the presentation of sucrose. Three control treatments, backward pairing, air (no odor) pairing and random pairing, failed to increase the cibarial pump response. However, an excitatory cibarial pump response developed when the backward- and air-paired groups received forward pairing of odor and sucrose on the following day. In contrast, moths experiencing random pairing on day 1 displayed a slower rate of acquisition during forward pairing on day 2, which may indicate inhibition. The second experiment investigated discrimination learning. Two odors were randomly presented, one odor being forward-paired with sucrose (+), the other presented alone (-) in a counterbalanced design. Again, only when odor was forward-paired with sucrose did learning occur. We discuss the implication of these findings for a broader comparative analysis of learning in insects.  (+info)

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): An implicit association test (IAT) measures differential association of 2 target concepts with an attribute. The 2 concepts appear in a 2-choice task (e.g., flower vs. insect names), and the attribute in a 2nd task (e.g., pleasant vs. unpleasant words for an evaluation attribute). When instructions oblige highly associated categories (e.g., flower + pleasant) to share a response key, performance is faster than when less associated categories (e.g., insect + pleasant) share a key. This performance difference implicitly measures differential association of the 2 concepts with the attribute. In 3 experiments, the IAT was sensitive to (a) near-universal evaluative differences (e.g., flower vs. insect), (b) expected individual differences in evaluative associations (Japanese + pleasant vs. Korean + pleasant for Japanese vs. Korean subjects), and (c) consciously disavowed evaluative differences (Black + pleasant vs. White + pleasant

DESCRIPTION: Recent government sponsored research is working to produce a new line of flexible physiological and behavioral sensor technologies that are to be available for homeland security applications. These sensors, which must be non-invasive in nature and protect the privacy of the individual(s) involved, will be used to support human centered/behavioral screening processes in a variety of high and low volume venues. Security screening is conducted to evaluate the risk of individuals entering transportation and other critical infrastructure and requires efficient, rapid and accurate examination of a person. Persons involved in or planning to be involved in possible malicious or deceitful acts will show various behavioral or physiological abnormalities. Much of the technology and publications to date have focused on detection of guilty individuals using electrodermal measures. Research into other psychophysiological measures or the mechanisms underlying deception is still in its early ...
ANTHONY GREENWALD: In 1900, mathematician David Hilbert made a list of 23 recognized questions that the field of mathematics should regard as important unanswered questions and, lo and behold, many mathematicians decided to work on those questions. We psychologists do not have such widely agreed-upon lists of questions, but we do have a continuing good source of questions-the questions often come to us from society.. Our study of prejudice, for example, comes out of trying to deal with policy questions that leaders deal with and that we think need to be informed by science. Prejudice was a topic I discovered relatively late in my career. My dissertation advisor, Gordon Allport, may be best known for his 1954 book on prejudice, The Nature of Prejudice. However, when Allport was my advisor, in the early 1960s, he was no longer interested in the topic. I eventually came to an interest in prejudice because the work on attitudes that Mahzarin and I were doing in the mid 1990s produced a technique ...
Synaesthesia is a hereditary, neurological condition in which common stimuli trigger unexpected secondary sensations. For example, reading letters may result in the visualisation of colour, a variant known as grapheme-colour synaesthesia. While synaesthesia is thought to confer a range of benefits such as improved memory, empathy, visual search and creativity to the synaesthete, there is a small, yet growing, body of evidence that suggests synaesthesia may also be associated with more clinical conditions. This thesis investigates potential associations between synaesthesia and a range of clinical conditions, identifying a set of cormorbidities, and exploring the possible genetic roots of these associations. First, I identified an increased prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) and its clinical precursor, radiologically isolated syndrome (RIS) in synaesthetes self-referring for participation in scientific studies. Furthermore, I identified an increased occurrence of anxiety disorder in randomly ...
Both implicit and explicit cognitions play an important role in the development of addictive behavior. This study investigated the influence of a single-session motivational interview (MI) on implicit and explicit alcohol-related cognition and whether this intervention was successful in consequently decreasing alcohol use in at-risk adolescents. Implicit and explicit alcohol-related cognitions were assessed at pretest and one month posttest in 125 Dutch at-risk adolescents ranging in age from 15 to 23 (51 males) with adapted versions of the Implicit Association Test (IAT) and an expectancy questionnaire. Motivation to change, alcohol use and alcohol-related problems were measured with self-report questionnaires, at pretest, at posttest after one month, and at the six-month follow-up. Although the quality of the intervention was rated positively, the results did not yield support for any differential effects of the intervention on drinking behavior or readiness to change at posttest and six-month ...
I imagine many of us are familiar with Implicit Association Tests, and have probably taken the Skin-tone IAT on this list. Somewhat less familiar is the advent of a blood pressure drug with the purported side effect of abolishing this particular form of racism. Studies of the drug, propranolol, shed light on the little-understood underlying neurobiology of implicit racism. As law professor Adam Kolber explains, one possibility is that propranolol reduces certain fear responses in the amygdala, and these fear responses affect performance on the test of implicit racial bias. Intriguing legal implications abound... We are all vividly aware of the conviction and sentencing biases juries display based on the race of the defendant. What if your next jury summons came with instructions to take an enclosed pill with a glass of OJ before reporting for duty? Another legal debate revolves around the admissibility of neuroscience evidence in the courtroom. Suppose a neurologist is able to map a ...
Author(s): Keech, Jacob J; Hagger, Martin S; OCallaghan, Frances V; Hamilton, Kyra | Abstract: Background:Emerging evidence indicates that holding particular stress mindsets has favorable implications for peoples health and performance under stress. Purpose:The aim of the current study was to examine the processes by which implicit and explicit stress mindsets relate to health- and performance-related outcomes. Specifically, we propose a stress beliefs model in which somatic responses to stress and coping behaviors mediate the effect of stress mindsets on outcomes. Methods:Undergraduate university students (N = 218, n = 144 females) aged 17- 25 years completed measures of stress mindset, physical and psychological wellbeing, perceived stress, perceived somatic responses to stress, proactive behaviors under stress, and an implicit association test assessing an implicit stress mindset. At the end of the semester, students academic performance was collected from university records. Results:Path analysis

Ask 150-plus leaders what was the most memorable part of the 2015 School of Medicine Leadership Retreat and many will say the stories - stories told by medical students, by residents and postdocs and by their own peers vividly illustrated how racism is still tainting our environment - even at a progressive institution like UCSF.. Jeff Critchfield, MD, remembers the story of a third-year black medical student who was called to the Emergency Department to admit a patient and the nurse assumed that he was the janitor. Kevin Grumbach, MD, recalls how profoundly he was moved when faculty member Neil Powe, MD, MPH, MBA, recounted getting pulled over in North Carolina for driving while black.. Everyone had prepared for the retreat by taking the Implicit Association Test, a tool for uncovering unconscious bias. Some of the most honest and sobering discussions at the retreat centered around the impact of finding out about hidden preferences and biases which we carry around from having grown up in ...

One recent development in the field of synaesthesia includes the amendment to Cytowics original criteria which stated that precepts are always spatially extended into the outside world. Over the past few years, researches have come to distinguish two broad forms of synaesthesia which render the spatial expansion principle correct for only one of the two forms. Today, synaesthetes are recognized as either lower synaesthetes termed projectors or higher synaesthetes termed associators . The terms higher and lower refer to the level of processing at which the sense-perceptions are crossed while the terms projector and associator refer to where the percept is sensed i.e. out in the world versus in the minds eye. Dixon et al.[10] came up with a method for differentiating between these two types of synaesthetes which does not depend on purely descriptive measures. They used third-person objective testing in addition to self-report in order to develop standardized performance measures for ...

Despite the great amount of knowledge produced by the neuroscientific literature affective phenomena, current models tackling non-cognitive aspects of behavior are often bio-inspired but rarely bio-constrained. This paper presents a theoretical account of affective systems centered on the amygdala. This account aims to furnish a general framework and specific pathways to implement models that are more closely related to biological evidence. The amygdala, which receives input from brain areas encoding internal states, innately relevant stimuli, and innately neutral stimuli, plays a fundamental role in motivational and emotional processes of organisms. This role is based on the fact that amygdala implements the two associative processes at the core of Pavlovian learning (CS-US and CS-UR associations), and that it has the capacity of modulating these associations on the basis of internal states. These functionalities allow the amygdala to play an important role in the regulation of the three ...
Objective: To develop a new scale aimed at evaluating smoking motivation by incorporating questions and domains from the 68-item Wisconsin Inventory of Smoking Dependence Motives (WISDM-68) into the Modified Reasons for Smoking Scale (MRSS). Methods: Nine WISDM-68 questions regarding affiliative attachment, cue exposure/associative processes, and weight control were added to the 21 questions of the MRSS. The new scale, together with the Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence (FTND), was administered to 311 smokers (214 males; mean age = 37.6 ± 10.8 years; mean number of cigarettes smoked per day = 15.0 ± 9.2), who also provided additional information. We used exploratory factor analysis in order to determine the factor structure of the scale. The influence that certain clinical features had on the scores of the final factor solution was also analyzed. Results: The factor analysis revealed a 21-question solution grouped into nine factors: addiction, pleasure from smoking, tension ...
Background: The obesity pandemic is causing premature mortality, increasing morbidity and escalating healthcare costs. It is globally acknowledged that current obesity management strategies are failing. It is also accepted that clinicians may hold an Anti-fat bias. To-date it has not been established if there is a relationship between strategy failures and clinicians attitudes. This uncharted territory was the driving impetus to undertaken a study investigating possible links and consequences. Aims: To establish healthcare clinicians attitudes towards patients with obesity and test the extent to which their attitudes influenced obesity management. Methods: Online vignettes were generated via Factorial Survey Design methods to assess obesity management by clinicians. The obesity Implicit Association Test (IAT) was used to assess subconscious Anti-fat bias. Data were collected anonymously from a multi-professional convenience sample in a virtual research site managed by Project Implicit®. ...

Suicide is the 15th most common cause of death worldwide. Although relatively uncommon in the general population, suicide rates are much higher in people with mental health problems. Clinicians often have to assess and manage suicide risk. Risk assessment is challenging for several reasons, not least because conventional approaches to risk assessment rely on patient self reporting and suicidal patients may wish to conceal their plans. Accurate methods of predicting suicide therefore remain elusive and are actively being studied. Novel approaches to risk assessment have shown promise, including empirically derived tools and implicit association tests. Service provision for suicidal patients is often substandard, particularly at times of highest need, such as after discharge from hospital or the emergency department. Although several drug based and psychotherapy based treatments exist, the best approaches to reducing the risk of suicide are still unclear. Some of the most compelling evidence ...

Your spelling is wrong. But here is a medical article abstract about it: 1: Eur Neurol. 2007;57(2):120-4. Epub 2006 Dec 18. Synaesthesia. Pearce JM. Department of Neurology, Hull Royal Infirmary, Hull, UK. Synaesthesia is the intriguing, involuntary experience of feeling one sensationin response to a different sensory stimulus. Recognised since described in 1890by John Locke and clarified by Galton in the 1880s, it has been analysed in thelast 50 years. Grapheme-colour synaesthesia is the commonest form, but many othersensory linkages are reported. Experiments show that it is a genuine immediateperception, not merely a memory or learned association. Many of the mechanismsposited are based on indirect methods, and we know little of theneurophysiological mechanisms. Copyright 2007 S. Karger AG, Basel. PMID: 17179720 This is not very scientific information, but this persons blog offers a pretty good explanatiom of it: ...
Consider joining our study.. Synaesthesia is an unusual and intriguing condition sometimes described as a mixing of the senses. People with synaesthesia have experiences in which their senses appear to be connected. While some synaesthetes associate letters, days of the week, or months of the year with colours, others feel a taste on their tongue when they say a word, or experience vivid sensations that incorporate colours, shapes, textures and movement in response to hearing music. Synaesthesia is different from normal memories or associations because the sensations experienced are automatic and involuntary, and are largely consistent over time. The current estimates are that 2-5% of people have synaesthetic experiences. Synaesthesia is a neurodevelopmental condition, which means that it results from events during brain development, leading to unusual patterns of neural connectivity. Brain imaging studies show that something different is happening in the brains of synaesthetes compared to ...
This paper intends to offer guidance for designing and conducting qualitative research projects of high quality. It subscribes to the view that it is essential to locate any research project within a philosophical tradition to enable cogent justification and evaluation of the knowledge elaborated in the research project. It builds upon the view that the diversity of guidelines for rigorous qualitative research offered in the literature stems from their explicit or implicit association with different epistemological frameworks. It revisits, refines and extends in several ways extant typologies of criteria for conducting and evaluating qualitative research. We provide an overview of epistemological paradigms frequently mobilized in contemporary research in management, explicitly taking into account the epistemological frameworks of critical realism and pragmatic constructivism for three main reasons: these frameworks are solidly-grounded, increasingly mobilized in management research, and stand in an
Previous findings imply that synaesthetic experience may have consequences for sensory processing of stimuli that do not themselves trigger synaesthesia. For example, synaesthetes who experience colou
Whether administered separately or together, the CLo values of (R)- and (S)-gallopamil are high and not different. Thus, the substantial first-pass metabolism of gallopamil is not stereoselective.. Relative to administration of the separate enantiomers, coadministration decreases the CLo values and increases the F values of both (R)- and (S)-gallopamil. This can be attributed to a saturation of first-pass metabolism as the gallopamil dose was twice as high when administered as racemate compared with the dose of the gallopamil enantiomers administered separately. This is further supported by the results after the administration of 100 mg of (R)-gallopamil; a nonlinear increase of the AUC was observed compared with 25 mg of (R)-gallopamil. From the F values that were estimated using the equation given above (1/F = 0.89 × Clo + 0.42), the extraction ratios of (R)- and (S)-gallopamil were calculated (ER = 1 − F) and are high for both (R)- [25 mg (R) = 0.90, 50 mg (RS) = 0.76] and (S)- [25 mg (S) ...

My SSHRC grant continues to support my research on commitment in close relationships. We have found that a key motivational basis of commitment is identification-that is, the extent to which the relationship becomes part of ones identity. Our work on identification is advancing on two fronts. First, we are developing implicit measures of identification that will reveal how relationship motives can influence relationship processes in effortless, efficient ways, which is particularly relevant in real world contexts when individuals are tired, distracted or under time pressure-all contextual factors that inhibit the ability of explicit, consciously controlled processes to operate effectively. Second, we are examining identification in conjunction with intrinsic motivation-being in a relationship for the sheer enjoyment of it. The long term goal is to develop a dual-process model of relationship regulation whereby intrinsic and identified motives work in tandem to fuel satisfying and lasting ...
the best set of actions at that moment to achieve the desired outcome (getting high). This allows you to be very flexible with how you achieve the outcome and is known as an Action-Outcome association4. However, this processing takes up a lot of mental resources, which could be used for more important things like finding a mate, locating food or reciting Taylor Swift lyrics. If the prefrontal cortex notices that the Action-Outcome association is always the same, it decides there is no use in always performing the same calculations and teaches a more primitive part of the brain in which situations (stimuli) a pre-calculated set of actions (responses) should be performed. This more primitive part of the brain is known as the dorsal striatum, and is involved with habits or Stimulus-Response associations4.. A habit allows quick and easy initiation of a response but does not allow flexibility in the actions performed nor consideration of whether the outcome is still desired. Usually, the prefrontal ...

Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. People who report a lifelong history of such experiences are known as synesthetes. In one common form of synesthesia, known as grapheme-color synesthesia or color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored. In spatial-sequence, or number form synesthesia, numbers, months of the year, or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be farther away than 1990), or may appear as a three-dimensional map (clockwise or counterclockwise). Synesthetic associations can occur in any combination and any number of senses or cognitive pathways. Little is known about how synesthesia develops. It has been suggested that synesthesia develops during childhood when children are intensively engaged with abstract concepts for the first time. This hypothesis - referred to ...
The sensory recruitment model envisages visual working memory (VWM) as an emergent property that is encoded and maintained in sensory (visual) regions. The model implies that enhanced sensory-perceptual functions, as in synaesthesia, entail a dedicated VWM-system, showing reduced visual cortex activity as a result of neural specificity. By contrast, sensory-perceptual decline, as in old age, is expected to show enhanced visual cortex activity as a result of neural broadening. To test this model, young grapheme-color synaesthetes, older adults and young controls engaged in a delayed pair-associative retrieval and a delayed matching-to-sample task, consisting of achromatic fractal stimuli that do not induce synaesthesia. While a previous analysis of this dataset (Pfeifer et al., 2016) has focused on cued retrieval and recognition of pair-associates (i.e., long-term memory), the current study focuses on visual working memory and considers, for the first time, the crucial delay period in which no visual
The aim of the present research was to investigate the interpersonal effects of pride and shame expressions amongst opponents and teammates in a soccer penalty scenario. Across a series of experiments using the point-light method, pride and shame expressions exerted strong effects upon observers anticipated emotions, associated cognitions, and performance expectations. Using the Implicit Association Test (IAT) in two pilot studies we demonstrated that the created pride and shame point-light stimuli were implicitly associated with status and performance related attributes. In Experiment 1, observing pride expressions caused opponents to anticipate more negative emotions, cognitions, and lower performance expectancies toward their next performance in comparison with neutral expressions. In contrast, pride expressions led teammates to anticipate more positive emotions (i.e., pride and happiness), cognitions, and performance expectations toward their next performance than neutral expressions (Experiments 2
Learning is often understood as an organisms gradual acquisition of the association between a given sensory stimulus and the correct motor response. Mathematically, this corresponds to regressing a mapping between the set of observations and the set of actions. Recently, however, it has been shown both in cognitive and motor neuroscience that humans are not only able to learn particular stimulus-response mappings, but are also able to extract abstract structural invariants that facilitate generalization to novel tasks. Here we show how such structure learning can enhance facilitation in a sensorimotor association task performed by human subjects. Using regression and reinforcement learning models we show that the observed facilitation cannot be explained by these basic models of learning stimulus-response associations. We show, however, that the observed data can be explained by a hierarchical Bayesian model that performs structure learning. In line with previous results from cognitive tasks, ...
BACKGROUND: Implicit negative attitudes towards other races are important in certain kinds of prejudicial social behaviour. Emotional mechanisms are thought to be involved in mediating implicit outgroup bias but there is little evidence concerning the underlying neurobiology. The aim of the present study was to examine the role of noradrenergic mechanisms in the generation of implicit racial attitudes. METHODS: Healthy volunteers (n = 36) of white ethnic origin, received a single oral dose of the β-adrenoceptor antagonist, propranolol (40 mg), in a randomised, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled, design. Participants completed an explicit measure of prejudice and the racial implicit association test (IAT), 1-2 h after propranolol administration. RESULTS: Relative to placebo, propranolol significantly lowered heart rate and abolished implicit racial bias, without affecting the measure of explicit racial prejudice. Propranolol did not affect subjective mood. CONCLUSIONS: Our results
Research has shown that lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth have increased rates of physical and mental health problems primarily due to the chronic stress incurred by the levels of prejudice and isolation experienced in their environment, especially in Southern States. Teachers are the most available and sought after adults by sexual minority students, helping them to mitigate such toxic environments. In this study, the aim was to examine the relationship between implicit and explicit attitudes of homonegativity and the moderating role of motivation to control prejudiced reactions among teachers in Southern states. Additional information was gathered about the teachers school environment in regard to protective factors that were or were not in place for sexual minority students and possible resources that they perceived would be helpful in establishing a more positive environment for these students. Correlations were found between the Implicit Association Test (IAT), Modern Homonegativity Scale (MHS),
Im a bit torn. Racism and sexism (like other -isms, capitalism, socialism, etc.) are societal structures that have, over our lifetimes, been cultivated in every one of us (try the Harvard Implicit Association Tests if you havent already). Im not convinced that labeling individuals as racists (so that you can then peace out on them) is productive: it implies that racism is something that can be isolated, and exists in some individuals, and not others, and all we have to do to solve racism is to stay away from those bad people. Im not the only person who thinks this: Ive even heard the hypothesis that a good deal of the racial problems we continue to have in America today can be traced to the fact that Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (a book I love, by the way), which trades in the only-bad-people-are-racists view, is considered the definitive Great American Novel about race and is required reading in many schools, while Uncle Toms Cabin (a book I havent read, but this is how the ...
Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which two or more bodily senses are coupled. For example, in a form of synesthesia known as grapheme-color synesthesia, letters or numbers may be perceived as inherently colored. Historically, the most commonly described form of synesthesia (or synesthesia-like mappings) has been between sound and vision, e.g. the hearing of colors in music. The interest in colored hearing, i.e. the co-perception of colour in hearing sounds or music, dates back to Greek antiquity, when philosophers were investigating whether the colour (chroia, what we now call timbre) of music was a physical quality that could be quantified. The seventeenth-century physicist Isaac Newton tried to solve the problem by assuming that musical tones and colour tones have frequencies in common. The age-old quest for colour-pitch correspondences in order to evoke perceptions of coloured music finally resulted in the construction of color organs and performances of colored music in concert ...

Colorblindness vs. mindfulness. It might sound counterintuitive to some, but both insight and analysis suggests that implicit bias may actually be heightened by the societal emphasis on colorblindness, a notion that dates at least to the Plessy v. Ferguson case in the late 19th century (Justice Harlan, dissenting), and played an important role in the civil rights movement of the mid-20th.. When embraced by conservatives in the late 20th century, however, it became a basis for largely shutting down effective understanding of race and its impact in our lives.. As most of us know from simple, everyday experience, none of us is actually blind to race or color. In fact, research confirms common disconnects between explicit and implicit cognition around race and color. Even if we try to act adopt a colorblind view in the world, it doesnt work because our brains dont actually work that way.. Indeed, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral dissonance results from implicit and explicit efforts to comply ...
I made a decision to retire in January from medhelp and focus on what I wanted to do with myself. I had a habit when I wasnt on my sleep meds of watching bob Ross paint to calm my mind and help me sleep as I am wondering what to do next I was at Wal-Mart and saw some ... [More] cheap thin acrylic paints I picked out some of them that I though I could get by with and a cheap paint brush set along with a couple packs of canvas boards... Cheap! I wasnt intent to spend much on the very likely chance that I lacked any painting skills... Turns out watching and listening to bob Ross videos for about 6 months to sleep gives a person a recall ability on skills and color mixing picked up from painting with Jane and I am able to paint. So I now still use canvas boards but have better (more expensive) brushes and paints. I have invested about 200 dollars on all of it but I have produced progressively better, more detailed and creative paintings. So I guess I am a poet and a painter now though I finished a ...

However, a new study has identified 11 synesthetes whose grapheme-color mappings appear to be based on the Fisher Price plastic letter set made between 1972-1990 (Witthoft & Winawer, 2013). 2 Letter-color mapping data were obtained from the participants using either The Synesthesia Battery Web site ( or in-house software. This required that the subjects use a color picker to identify the hue of 26 upper case letters and 10 numerals three times each (presented in random order). They did this in two separate sessions, and then the consistency within and across sessions was evaluated. The participants also completed a speeded Stroop-like task, where they had to identify whether the color font was congruent (A) or incongruent (A) relative to their synesthetic mapping ...
While synesthesia has been explored in behavioral and neuroimaging experiments, what remains unknown is its genetic basis. Synesthesia is an ideal condition for genetic analysis for 3 reasons: (1) A battery of perceptual tests allows confident identification of synesthetes, (2) synesthesia clusters in families and appears to be inherited, and (3) synesthetic perception may result from increased cross-talk between neighboring neural areas, which suggests a set of candidate genes. As for the last point, the increased cross-talk may either be anatomical (implicating genes involved in neuronal pruning, arborization or apoptosis) or it may be functional (implicating genes involved in the balance between inhibition and excitation). We are performing a family linkage analysis to map the gene(s) that correlate with verifiable grapheme-color and timeunit-color synesthesias. To this end, we have developed a battery of psychophysical tests to quickly phenotype synesthetes, i.e., to distinguish them from ...
This paper proposed a method of polarity analysis of stock comments in Chinese based on word clustering, to avoid effect of noisy information without emotional tendency. This method mines semantic association between words to construct the concept dictionary in specific areas dynamically and describes the text feature with the concept constructed. The experimental results show that this method can not only reduces dimensionality of feature space, speed up the process of sentiment classification, but also improve the performance of sentiment classification to a certain extent.
A method and system for aiding users in visualizing the relatedness of retrieved text documents and the topics to which they relate comprises training a classifier by semantically analyzing an initial group of manually-classified documents, positioning the classes and documents in two-dimensional space in response to semantic associations between the classes, and displaying the classes and documents. The displayed documents may be retrieved by an information storage and retrieval subsystem in any suitable manner.
What would it be like if numbers and musical tones had colours? People with synaesthesia experience the world in this way - and scientists are trying to find out why.
