Disorders of hearing or auditory perception due to pathological processes of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. These include CENTRAL HEARING LOSS and AUDITORY PERCEPTUAL DISORDERS.
Sound that expresses emotion through rhythm, melody, and harmony.
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.

Personal review: Helicobacter pylori, NSAIDs and cognitive dissonance. (1/41)

Helicobacter pylori and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) each cause peptic ulcers but by different mechanisms. As a result, the effect of both of these risk factors together is not a synergistic enhancement of injury, ulceration or rates of complications. Indeed, there are circumstances under which patients infected with H. pylori are less prone to NSAID-induced ulcers than those who are not infected or who have undergone eradication treatment. This may be because of opposite effects on gastric mucosal prostaglandin synthesis or for other reasons. Reluctance to accept that there may be specific circumstances where H. pylori is beneficial may arise because of the psychological process of cognitive dissonance.  (+info)

Conflict of intentions due to callosal disconnection. (2/41)

OBJECTIVES: Three patients with callosal syndrome manifested a peculiar symptom in that they were unable to perform intended whole body actions because another intention emerged in competition with the original one. Attempts were made to clarify the symptomatology of this manifestation and its possible mechanism is discussed. METHODS: The three patients are described and previous reports on patients with callosal damage were reviewed. Four additional patients with similar symptoms were found and the clinical features common to all seven patients were examined. RESULTS: This symptom could not be attributed to unilateral movement disorders such as unilateral apraxia, intermanual conflict, or compulsive manipulation of tools. The manifestations included marked hesitation in initiating actions, interruption of actions, repetitive actions, and performance of unintended actions with difficulty in correcting them. All patients, except one, had a lesion in the posterior half of the body of the corpus callosum, and there was no significant involvement of the cerebral cortex. The symptom became manifest later than 4 weeks after callosal damage. It occurred during spontaneous actions, but not during well automated actions nor when following instructions. CONCLUSION: This symptom, tentatively named "conflict of intentions", can be regarded as a fragment of diagonistic dyspraxia originally described by Akelaitis, although it can occur independently of intermanual conflict. Normally, the right and left cerebral hemispheres may be complementarily modifying automated whole body actions in order to adapt behaviour to changes of the environment as well as to the intention. Partial callosal disconnection without significant cortical involvement would exaggerate the disparity between the role of each hemisphere through the reorganisation of neural systems after callosal damage. Such double, often contrary, behavioural tendencies may sometimes simultaneously enter the patient's awareness.  (+info)

Cannabis and psychosis. (3/41)

BACKGROUND: Cannabis use is commonly identified in people who present with psychosis. OBJECTIVE: This case study aims to provide a practical approach for general practitioners seeing patients with comorbid cannabis and mental health concerns. DISCUSSION: Cannabis related comorbidity is commonly seen in general practice. General practitioners can manage most presentations and help to reduce the likely occurrence of cannabis induced psychosis through the use of psychosocial support, brief interventions and harm minimisation.  (+info)

Money for consent--psychological consideration. (4/41)

CONTEXT: Regarding the increasing gap between demand and supply of donor organs the question is increasingly discussed, if families of organ donors should receive a financial incentive for consenting to organ donation. However, little attention has been paid to the psychological consequences of such incentives. OBJECTIVE: We discuss the question of financial incentives for families of presumed organ donors in the light of relevant psychological theories. DATA SOURCES AND STUDY SELECTION: Overview of the psychological literature. Only well established theories were included. CONCLUSIONS: We summarise, that financial benefits for consent to organ donoation could affect adversely the public opinion toward organ donation and the whole process of transplantation and thus could counterproductively influence the consent rates.  (+info)

What we regret most... and why. (5/41)

Which domains in life produce the greatest potential for regret, and what features of those life domains explain why? Using archival and laboratory evidence, the authors show that greater perceived opportunity within life domains evokes more intense regret. This pattern is consistent with previous publications demonstrating greater regret stemming from high rather than low opportunity or choice. A meta-analysis of 11 regret ranking studies revealed that the top six biggest regrets in life center on (in descending order) education, career, romance, parenting, the self, and leisure. Study Set 2 provided new laboratory evidence that directly linked the regret ranking to perceived opportunity. Study Set 3 ruled out an alternative interpretation involving framing effects. Overall, these findings show that people's biggest regrets are a reflection of where in life they see their largest opportunities; that is, where they see tangible prospects for change, growth, and renewal.  (+info)

Avoiding versus seeking: the relationship of information seeking to avoidance, blunting, coping, dissonance, and related concepts. (6/41)

QUESTION: How have theorists and empirical researchers treated the human tendency to avoid discomforting information? DATA SOURCES: A historical review (1890-2004) of theory literature in communication and information studies, coupled with searches of recent studies on uptake of genetic testing and on coping strategies of cancer patients, was performed. STUDY SELECTION: The authors' review of the recent literature included searches of the MEDLINE, PsychInfo, and CINAHL databases between 1992 and summer of 2004 and selective, manual searches of earlier literature. Search strategies included the following subject headings and key words: MeSH headings: Genetic Screening/psychology, Decision Making, Neoplasms/diagnosis/genetics/psychology; CINAHL headings: Genetic Screening, Genetic Counseling, Anxiety, Decision Making, Decision Making/Patient; additional key words: avoidance, worry, monitoring, blunting, cancer. The "Related Articles" function in MEDLINE was used to perform additional "citation pearl" searching. MAIN RESULTS: The assumption that individuals actively seek information underlies much of psychological theory and communication practice, as well as most models of the information-seeking process. However, much research has also noted that sometimes people avoid information, if paying attention to it will cause mental discomfort or dissonance. Cancer information in general and genetic screening for cancer in particular are discussed as examples to illustrate this pattern. CONCLUSION: That some patients avoid knowledge of imminent disease makes avoidance behavior an important area for social and psychological research, particularly with regard to genetic testing.  (+info)

Dissonance and healthy weight eating disorder prevention programs: a randomized efficacy trial. (7/41)

In this trial, adolescent girls with body dissatisfaction (N = 481, M age = 17 years) were randomized to an eating disorder prevention program involving dissonance-inducing activities that reduce thin-ideal internalization, a prevention program promoting healthy weight management, an expressive writing control condition, or an assessment-only control condition. Dissonance participants showed significantly greater reductions in eating disorder risk factors and bulimic symptoms than healthy weight, expressive writing, and assessment-only participants, and healthy weight participants showed significantly greater reductions in risk factors and symptoms than expressive writing and assessment-only participants from pretest to posttest. Although these effects faded over 6-month and 12-month follow-ups, dissonance and healthy weight participants showed significantly lower binge eating and obesity onset and reduced service utilization through 12-month follow-up, suggesting that both interventions have public health potential.  (+info)

Overcoming denial and increasing the intention to use condoms through the induction of hypocrisy. (8/41)

Feelings of hypocrisy were induced in college students to increase condom use. Hypocrisy was created by making subjects mindful of their past failure to use condoms and then having them persuade others about the importance of condoms for AIDS prevention. The induction of hypocrisy decreased denial and led to greater intent to improve condom use relative to the control conditions. The implications of these findings for AIDS prevention are discussed.  (+info)

From Wikipedia: Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously. The ideas or cognitions in question may include attitudes and beliefs, and also the awareness of ones behavior. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors,…
What that is....is~~ Cognitive dissonance is a psychological term describing the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting thoughts at the same time, or from engaging in behavior that conflicts with ones beliefs, or from experiencing apparently conflicting phenomena. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance Do you ever feel that on the job?

Cognitive dissonance refers to any situation involving conflicting beliefs, attitudes, or behaviors. According to the text, A First Look at Communication
This essay talks about seemingly opposite things: how cognitive dissonance perpetuates conflict, and how it can be used to de-escalate or even resolve conflict. Its importance has been particularly evident in the United States during the last Presidential election cycle, and now that Donald Trump has become president of the United States. One of the biggest factors in Trumps rise was social media, which Trump backers used extensively to paint a very negative image of Hillary Clinton, her behaviors, and her policies, while painting a strongly positive image of Donald Trump. Whenever news was publicized that contradicted those images, it was branded fake news and Trump dubbed the media as the enemy of the American people. So the way Trump and his followers dealt with the many negative stories arising about Trump--for instance about his misogyny, about his racism, or about his inexperience -- which contradicted their image of Trump as a strong, effective leader, was to deny the truth of those ...
The first was a rebroadcast of an interview by Terry Gross (WHYY, Philadelphia) of Professor Ewe Reinhardt, a Princeton economist, who was a youngster in Germany during World War II and advocated for the Personal Mandate that became law with the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare). Reinhardt: Cognitive Dissonance means that you hold two different theories that are in conflict with one another. For example, many Americans say the government doesnt have the right to require them to buy health insurance. But the same Americans will say if they get hit by a truck and lie bleeding in the street, society is obliged to send an ambulance and emergency room doctors are obliged to save their lives. How could both be true? If you believe society has a duty to save your life when you get hurt, you have a duty to chip into a fund that pays for that. The interview was particularly timely now that the US Senate is weighing repeal of the Personal Mandate as part of their tax overhaul ...

This study examined teacher perceptions of the importance and feasibility of eating disorder prevention activities in schools and examined the differences in regards to perceptions amongst teachers across grade levels. Previous research showed that in order for preventative programming to be successfully implemented, it must have the support and understanding of the school staff members. Previous research has not examined perceptions below the fourth grade. A survey about teacher perceptions of the importance and feasibility of eating disorder prevention activities was completed by 150 Midwestern teachers. Fifty teachers from each grade level completed the survey. Teachers rated twelve of the thirty prevention activities as highly important and six of the thirty as highly feasible. An Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) showed that elementary school teacher ratings of the importance of such activities were significantly lower than ratings by the middle and high school teachers. The ANOVA also ...
The key motivational mechanism that underlies the reluctance to change our minds, to admit mistakes, and to be unwilling to accept unwelcome scientific findings is cognitive dissonance-the discomfort we feel when two cognitions, or cognition and behavior, contradict each other. Leon Festinger, who developed this theory sixty years ago, showed that the key thing about dissonance is that, like extreme hunger, it is uncomfortable, and, like hunger, we are motivated to reduce it. For smokers, the dissonant cognitions are Smoking is bad for me versus Im a heavy smoker. To reduce that dissonance, smokers either have to quit or justify smoking. Before we make a decision (about a car, a candidate, or anything else), we are as open-minded as we are likely to be; but after we make a decision, we have to reduce dissonance. To do this, we will emphasize everything good about the car we bought or the candidate we are supporting or the belief we accepted and notice only the flaws in the ...

The societal burden of eating disorders is clear, and though there is a compelling need for a public health approach to eating disorders prevention, public health professionals have yet to take up the challenge. The article lays out an argument
According to cognitive dissonance theory (Festinger, Schachter, & Riecken, 1964; Aronson, 1992; Tavris & Aronson, 2008), when people are presented with new evidence that conflicts with their previously held beliefs, this results in a form of cognitive tension called dissonance. Importantly, the strength of this uncomfortable tension depends on the degree to which people have invested in their beliefs, for example by way of public commitment, or by the time and effort spent acting in accordance with these beliefs (Batson, 1975). If the psychological investment in a belief is high, people are more motivated to reduce dissonance by rationalizing away disconfirming data. In the refined version of dissonance theory, dissonance arises not so much because of two conflicting cognitions, but because adverse evidence conflicts with ones self-esteem as a competent and reasonable person[1]. This accords with our earlier observation that, when people explain away unwelcome evidence, they do so in a way ...

Jessies Legacy also chairs the North Shore Education Committee for the Prevention of Disordered Eating. While not a program as such, it is a collective of North Shore agencies working together to bring awareness to and a coordinated effort to prevent eating disorders in our community. Other members of this committee are School Districts 44 and 45, Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Dairy. The North Shore Education Committee on Eating Disorders began over 10 years ago as a response to a growing need for community stakeholders doing eating disorders prevention and counselling work with children and youth in North and West Vancouver, to meet together and brainstorm, learn collectively, and centralize messaging.. Today, the committee is run out of the Jessies Legacy Eating Disorders Prevention Program at Family Services of the North Shore and provides a real opportunity for learning and being creative within the field. The group is comprised of therapists, school counsellors and nurses, dietitians, and ...
According to the cognitive model, preserving consistency is a priority for human cognition (Festinger, 1957). People have a general tendency to restore coherence between their views, and between their views and the views of others, when this is compromised. If a person finds herself in a state of extreme cognitive dissonance, she needs to validate her prior beliefs and offset the cognitive dissonance emerging from those beliefs and newly acquired information. Mood-congruent delusions in depression play this key role. In particular, they may offer validation for ones own intensively experienced guilt, shame, hopelessness, and dismay. The claim that one is being spied upon in ones own home - for example - matches the belief that one is not trustworthy and should be monitored at all times. Undoubtedly such delusions come with psychological costs. The delusional content is weaved with unpleasant, sometimes terrifying events, such as being watched, followed, or threatened. But, by reducing ...
Do you remember Aesops fable about a thirsty fox? It provides an extraordinary insight into the fundamentalist mind-set. The fox sees a cluster of grapes he knows will quench his desperate thirst. With absolute confidence the fox leaps and leaps. Much to his dismay the delicious-looking grapes remain out of reach of his grasping jaws. The fox is confronted with cognitive dissonance, a distressing mental state experienced when we find ourselves faced with facts that do not match what we want to believe. Cognitively, the fox is forced to accept that his belief that he could have the prized grapes was false. He senses his prized belief system is in jeopardy. Reality prohibits him from what he desperately wants to believe. To maintain his beliefs he will evade reality without regard to cost. His new challenge becomes how to overcome this cognitive dissonance. Innocently and perhaps sub-conscientiously he overcomes this challenge by simply lying to himself. He says, Those grapes are sour, and even ...
Religious uniform may represent the values that mental health professional holds important and prefer to hold in isolation from other thoughts giving rise to cognitive dissonance such as thoughts how bad it is for the patients and staff as well as the community (public interest). Cognitive dissonance plays a role in many value judgments, decisions and evaluations. Becoming aware of how conflicting beliefs impact the decision-making process is a great way to improve ability to make faster and more accurate choices. This ideal awareness is not something that is likely to happen in medical institutions dominated by men (General Medical Council in over 150 years never had a woman President or Chief Executive) or where women are chosen for their adherence to the same values and biases as men already there have. All major religions are patriarchal and dear to some medical men for that very reason. But not all medical men are the same. ...
One might quibble that Keech followed the second of Festingers possibilities: she acquired new information that transformed the disconfirming data into confirming data. In any case, Radin goes off in a different direction from Festinger and argues that another way to deal with cognitive dissonance is to apply pressure to people who hold different ideas, i.e., ostracize them and label them as quacks, pseudoscientists, heretics, and the like. However, Festinger wasnt concerned with how people deal with those whose views conflict with the consensus viewpoint. That is a completely different issue. Festinger was concerned with how people deal with evidence that disconfirms a cherished belief. Radin considers ethnic cleansing and witch-hunts as examples of dealing with cognitive dissonance. Festinger would shake his head and wonder what such practices have to do with the psychological problem of discomfort caused by evidence that threatens to shake the foundations of ones beliefs. Radin claims ...
In the Cognitive Consequences of Forced Compliance (1959), the investigators Leon Festinger and Merrill Carlsmith asked students to spend an hour doing tedious tasks; e.g. turning pegs a quarter-turn, at fixed intervals. The tasks were designed to induce a strong, negative, mental attitude in the subjects. Once the subjects had done the tasks, the experimenters asked one group of subjects to speak with another subject (an actor) and persuade that impostor-subject that the tedious tasks were interesting and engaging. Subjects of one group were paid twenty dollars ($20); those in a second group were paid one dollar ($1) and those in the control group were not asked to speak with the imposter-subject.[13] At the conclusion of the study, when asked to rate the tedious tasks, the subjects of the second group (paid $1) rated the tasks more positively than did the subjects in the first group (paid $20) and than did the subjects of the control group; the responses of the paid subjects were evidence of ...

That The Vagina Monologues still manages to be controversial in this day and age. I acknowledge that I consciously realize that there are many people in this country who are uncomfortable with frank discussions of sex, not to mention everything else that gets discussed in the show. But to describe such a thing as somehow being inherently anti-Catholic? Especially in the context of a university, especially one as big as Notre Dame? Besides, if The Vagina Monologues is the negative of Catholicism, does that mean these people want us to associate Roman Catholicism with violence against women or something? Or just that the Church is anti-Vagina? Im not just being hyperbolic and demagogic, Im seriously curious here. Its just sort of surreal to me ...
First, Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a white, anti-Life activist who promoted negative eugenics (preventing the proliferation of populations believed to be inferior through elimination, birth control, sterilization, and state regulation of fertility, among other methods). She proposed extreme measures in an attempt to ensure that only certain people be allowed to live in her ideal world. This world excluded a host of individuals and groups she and her powerful ilk deemed unfit, including - among others - the weak, the mentally or physically impaired, and the poor. Some of Sangers actions suggest that she may have considered the white population to be superior to blacks. For example, Sanger colluded with black leaders to promote birth control and sterilization among black populations disproportionately. Sangers radical eugenic views led to a lifetime of attempting to eliminate so-called undesirable human beings from civilization. …those of us who believe that the ...

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecules storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...

Although contemporary usage of the term is relatively recent, the concept of denialism has been recognised for several decades. A chapter entitled Denial of reality in a 1957 book describing the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance notes how . . . groups of scientists have been known to continue to believe in certain theories, supporting one another in this belief in spite of continual mounting evidence that these theories are incorrect. It highlights, in particular, the importance of selectivity, whereby one aspect of the process of dissonance reduction [is] obtaining new cognition which will be consonant with existing cognition and avoiding new cognition which will be dissonant with existing cognition. The extent to which selectivity influences our views is now widely recognised, not least as a result of a best selling book containing many examples of what is termed confirmation bias. One explanation is that confirmation bias is how we deal with evidence that challenges our strongly held ...

Objectives. The extensive consumption of alcohol can be defined as a major problem in Western countries. Primarily students are affected by negative health outcomes resulting from alcohol consumption. The most popular theory to explain Behavior is the Theory of Planned Behavior. Although, the Theory of Planned Behavior a valid method to predict human behavior regarding alcohol consumption, its predictive value is limited. In response to these limitations, there are other schools of thought which lead to an explanatory value to alcohol-related behavior. A crucial factor for the prediction of alcohol consumption is personality. Based on literature the personality traits Impulsivity and Sensation Seeking were chosen for this study. Although, most people know the negative consequences of drinking alcohol it is still a popular practice. The knowledge of the negative consequences and the and the contradictory desire to drink create a state of cognitive dissonance. To reduce this dissonance the ...

I have spent a long time declining to formulate my thoughts on the…let us call it enormous cognitive dissonance…that I see among genuine friends and people I know and respect over various political/politicized subjects the last year or two. I will mostly continue to decline, but, it appears to affect both sides (whatever that may mean), such that all capability for critical thought seems willfully jettisoned the moment any such subject arises.. Phrased more directly, Ive seen otherwise highly intelligent people spout some seriously dumb shit with deep conviction.. It perplexes me, but apparently my refusal to waste conscious thought on it has not precluded unconscious thought, such that today I began spontaneously recognizing this as a species of what I usually term, disparagingly, loyalty. Blind loyalty is perhaps more apt, but damn the adjectives. That comes back to the hypocrisies of tribalism and mob psychology and so on, but I am uninterested in the semantics and underlying ...

The psychology of eating meat is a complex area of study illustrating the confluence of morality, emotions, cognition, and personality characteristics. Research into the psychological and cultural factors of meat eating suggests correlations with masculinity; support for hierarchical values; and reduced openness to experience. Because meat eating is widely practiced but is sometimes associated with ambivalence, it has been used as a case study in moral psychology to illustrate theories of cognitive dissonance and moral disengagement. Research into the consumer psychology of meat is relevant both to meat industry marketing and to advocates of reduced meat consumption. Meat is an important and highly preferred human food. Individuals attitudes towards meat are of interest to consumer psychologists, to the meat industry, and to advocates of reduced meat consumption. These attitudes can be affected by issues of price, health, taste, and ethics. The perception of meat in relation to these issues ...
As we prepared and ate eggs every way possible for the next several days, the last shred of the judgement Id held about what people put into their pie holes just fell away from me forever. Ive been a vegetarian since I was fourteen and highly lactose intolerant for the last fifteen years. Though I felt slightly uncomfortable with them, I still ate eggs to keep my dangerously low cholesterol from tanking. Even so, my diet was naturally still very limited, and eating just for fuel was a regular part of my life. Ive spent many meals eating salad and bread for dinner at the homes of loving family who I couldnt reasonably expect to follow what felt, even to me, like a daunting set of restrictions. I joked often about eating hot wet noodles & vegetables at weddings and steak houses when my social life required it.. Under it all, I resented everyone elses ability to embrace cognitive dissonance. I had friends who fought bravely to save the whales, save puppies from puppy mills, end animal ...
As I mentioned, HealthyMouth has been awarded the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) seal of acceptance. VOHC is an independent organization that reviews the evidence for products claimed to have value for prevention and treatment of dental disease in animals. The organization requires clinical trial evidence to support product claims, and they have pretty specific protocols to ensure these claims are adequately demonstrated. However, I still have some concerns about the trials HealthyMouth uses to support its product claims.. As I often point out, all of us have biases about the ideas and beliefs we hold. We naturally believe our hypotheses to be true, and this can lead us to see what we want or expect to see, to focus on confirming information and ignore or minimize contrary information (e.g. confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance). And non-ideological motives, such as financial incentives, can also influence our interpretation of what we see even if our intentions are quite honest. It ...
This is a copy of an article I wrote for Highbrow Paleo in 2011. I have not edited it.. Several years ago, I had an acquaintance who had previously been diagnosed with diabetes. He began a low carb diet, against the advice of his doctor, (this was in the dark 90′s), and over a period of time his symptoms abated, until one day his doctor announced that he no longer had diabetes (though in a bizarre, but perhaps common feat of cognitive dissonance, she could not help but advise him that he really should eat more carbs). Of course, my friend hadnt actually stopped being a diabetic. If he were to have started eating carbs again, as recommended, he would quickly have returned to his diabetic state. What it means to be a diabetic is to have the susceptibility to manifest diabetes under the right, or perhaps I should say wrong, circumstances.. We all have weaknesses, to a greater or lesser extent. We all have our own special ways in which our bodies break down in response to a poor environment. ...
When he invited me to post about crime and punishment, Eugene suggested that I might want to finish up with a response to comments. So let me offer two general remarks, and some specific responses.. In general:. A. I cant read Eugenes mind, but I suspect that he invited me to guest-blog (despite our basic disagreements) for the same reason that I regularly follow this blog and other libertarian and conservative information channels. The basic lesson of Bayesian analysis is that you can learn only from information that disconfirms some part of your current belief set. But of course the natural tendency of the mind is to minimize cognitive dissonance by accepting confirming evidence and rejecting disconfirming evidence, and that tendency is emphasized when beliefs get to be badges of group membership.. This is a deeply unhealthy tendency, and it tends to defeat one of the basic evolutionary strategies of homo sapiens, which Karl Popper summed up as letting our beliefs die in our place. ...

Recreational athletes comprise the most prevalent population using illegal Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS). Despite regulatory efforts, substances are widely accessible, and most users report the experience of harmful side effects. It remains unclear why few users seek professional medical help. The aim of this study was to determine AAS users experience of side effects and help-seeking beliefs using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of six interviews. Participants were from the United Kingdom (n = 5) and United States (n = 1), had all experienced side effects, with some reporting prolonged use of AAS (,10 years) and self-manufacturing the drugs from raw ingredients. Results showed that AAS users discredit medical professionals competencies, and practice cognitive dissonance by avoiding challenging situations. A microculture for information-sharing has developed among AAS users who initially self-treat to counteract side effects, leaving them vulnerable to further harm. To ...
The research is skewed to the extent that past illegal preferences, legalized by the US Constitution, seems to be ignored by many of the alleged research community. I keep repeating this that it is only from 1970 in USA there there has been some modicum of equity before the law and that in itself dubious! One cannot prevent a part of the citizenry from participating in the natural commons then claiming these same people cannot compete in the marketplace. You prevent learnng but are shocked by your own cognitive dissonance on the matter. One does not see a native American presence due to past preferences of the nation so the lack is not about inability but about pretense and political hegemony. Just like the Bell Curse concept i.e. on the left side are those who have access to representation then you have the right side of those who have never had exposure to said learning then you have the middling portion (80%) who, based on attitude, ignorance, access or lack thereof, mentors, etc who will ...

The feedback provided to teachers by their supervisors, in preservice and in-service settings, is considered to be essential to teacher learning. Incorporating video records into these mentoring sessions has been shown to trigger the cognitive dissonance needed to help teachers explore the gaps between their intentions and their actual behaviors. However, while preservice teachers are increasingly asked to examine their teaching practice via video, their supervisors are not engaging in a parallel examination of their supervisory practice. Thus, university-based clinical supervisors who carry out critical conversations with teacher candidates do so without reflection about how they are performing in those conferences. At the same time, institutions of teacher education recognize the essential role supervisors play in the development of teacher candidate learning, yet are challenged as to how to provide professional development to supervisors. This paper describes an innovative response to this ...

The first in a new series of all-aged graphic novel adaptations of the current French-produced Cartoon Network series, Garfield & Co: Fish to Fry (Papercutz) features three comic retellings of cartoons utilizing screen captures from the original computer generated animated art. The results proved decidedly mixed for this reader, though young viewers who primarily know the fat cat from his current cartoon series may not feel the same sense of cognitive dissonance as those who came to the character via his funkier pen-and-ink incarnation.. Still, transferring screen captures onto a page and adding word balloons doesnt address all the storytelling needs that basic comic book art can. Animation expresses much of its characters emotions through movement and sound, after all; comics artists have to pull in other visual tools to suggest these missing elements (more dynamic panel composition, for instance). Placing screen captures on the page, no matter how interestingly you cut the panels, cant help ...
Im from the South too, which isnt something Im proud of at all. I get that feeling. I live on the West Coast and spend a lot of time online and, man, the number of supposedly progressive, tolerant liberals who are willing to completely shit on an entire group of people based on where they were born or their accent is astonishingly large. Theres some real cognitive dissonance around this. Theyd never criticize someone for being born in a third-world country, or speaking in black vernacular English. But theyre happy to joke that every Alabamian commits incest and every person who says aint is an ignorant dipshit.. There are many legitimate things to dislike about the South, just like there are many legitimate things to dislike about every region, culture, and people. But I dont think its fair or healthy to feel shame about being from the South.. First of all, theres no sense in shame for something you dont control. You didnt commit an original sin by choosing to be born from there. ...

Media Smart is an eight-lesson program that focuses on the manipulation of images in the media, building self-esteem and teaching young people how to analyse and challenge media messages.. Flinders Psychologists Dr Simon Wilksch and Professor Tracey Wade developed Media Smart to try to prevent the growing number of Australian adolescents engaging in dangerous eating behaviours.. Eating disorders are associated with the highest level of mortality of any psychological disorders, Professor Wade said.. As one of the worlds largest eating disorder prevention studies with the longest follow-up evaluation, Professor Wade said part of the success of the Media Smart trial comes from the program not including discussions of eating disorders.. In the past, researchers have trialled a lot of other programs but they havent managed to decrease risk factors or show any long term effects. In fact, some studies have even found providing information to young people about eating disorders can be harmful, she ...

Our current understanding of sepsis and multiple organ dysfunction needs to be revised, as the uniformly negative results of new therapies for these disorders suggest.Previous theories for the pathogenesis of these conditions are incomplete; reasons for this include the following. First, the surrogate models that have been used to study these disorders are not analogous to the clinical situation. Second, patients who have less severe manifestations of these diseases are often overlooked. And third, patients preexisting conditions have not been taken into account. Considerable new evidence indicates that, in addition to a massive proinflammatory reaction, a compensatory anti-inflammatory response contributes to the onset of these disorders. At a local site of injury or infection and during the initial appearance of pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators in the circulation, the beneficial effects of these mediators outweigh their harmful effects. Only when the balance between these two forces is ...

Anti-fracking fervor underscores dismissive attitudes toward working classes and poor families.. Several Hollywood elites were recently caught red-handed on videotape, agreeing to take money from a Middle Eastern oil sheikh for another anti-fracking movie. Their actions were shameful, but they felt no shame - only anger at the folks who caught them in the act. Indeed, the ironies are matched only by their hypocrisy and disdainful disregard for the consequences of their anti-fracking fervor.. The video records a conversation involving a producer, two actors - and someone they thought represented an oil oligarch. The Hollywood glitterati made it clear that they were willing to take Middle East oil cash for a film intended to help block drilling, hydraulic fracturing, energy production, job creation, revenue generation and our nations economic rejuvenation.. The three are known for their environmental fervor - and their apparent belief that its okay to drill for oil in Arab countries, but against ...

How Salespeople Use Principles of Persuasion. The research that we have discussed in this chapter reveals some of the many ways that we can persuade people to buy our products, to vote for our candidates, and to engage in other behaviors that we would like them to engage in. We have seen that we will be more successful if we use the right communicators and if we present the right messages under the right conditions. But it must also be kept in mind that a full understanding of the techniques used by persuaders may also be useful to help us avoid being persuaded by others.. Salespeople sometimes make use of the Behavior ⟶ Attitude relationship to attempt to persuade others. Regardless of whether the change is due to the cognitive principles of self-perception or the more affective principles of dissonance reduction, the attitude change that follows behavior can be strong and long lasting. This fact creates some very interesting opportunities for changing attitudes.. One approach based on this ...

Background While evidence on the cost of mental illness is growing, little is known about the cost-effectiveness of programmes in the areas of mental health promotion (MHP) and mental disorder prevention (MDP). The paper aims at identifying and assessing economic evaluations in both these areas to support evidence based prioritisation of resource allocation. Methods A systematic review of health and non health related bibliographic databases, complemented by a hand search of key journals and analysis of grey literature has been carried out. Study characteristics and results were qualitatively summarised. Economic evaluations of programmes that address mental health outcome parameters directly, those that address relevant risk factors of mental illness, as well as suicide prevention interventions were included, while evaluations of drug therapies were excluded. Results 14 studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria. They varied in terms of topic addressed, intervention used and study quality. Robust ...

Based on previous studies, we examined the differential effects on drinking of sex, readiness to change, self-efficacy, alcohol risk status, and parental monitoring as hypothesized moderators. Methods: We analyzed completers data from a two-armed RCT study with follow-up assessment after 3 months, including N = 211 self-enrolled adolescents (16 - 18 years) who screened positive for at-risk substance use in Sweden, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Germany. The trial compared a single-session brief motivational intervention to an assessment-only control group with AUDIT-C scores for drinking frequency, quantity, and frequency of binge drinking in the past month as study outcome. Results: The analyses ...
In 1954, the United States Supreme Court established the means for desegregating Americas schools. In addition, the United States has become more pluralistic. Therefore, educational institutions have been charged with preparing students for a diverse school setting, work force and client base. As schools increase in diversity, the issue of teacher and student readiness to deal with diversity has been the topic of discussion. This research examined the readiness of 117 White Catholic High School students for such diversity to occur in their school. Cultural Diversity Instruction was provided for 117 White male and female high school students (attending an either all-male or all-female school) at grades 9 and 11 during regular class sessions 1 meeting time per week for 10 weeks. These students were compared to a group of students who did not receive cultural diversity instruction. A 2x2x2 ANOVA (instructional x comparison group; male x female; juniors x freshmen) and a linear regression model as ...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures are one of the most common knee ligament injuries suffered by both male and female athletes. These injuries are severe in nature and also have long-term impacts on activities of daily living. Significant research has been conducted utilizing a drop landing task to attempt to better understand the mechanics behind the injury and to help identify at-risk athletes for targeted intervention. However, there have not been any published standards for the height of the drop landing activity, and previous researchers have also raised some concerns about the ability of a drop landing task to replicate the landing mechanics of a sport-specific task. To examine possible differences in performance based on specific landing tasks, the first study compared the landing mechanics of male and female high school athletes in three different landing conditions (drop landing, DL; adjusted height drop landing, AHDL; and a vertical jump task, VJL) (Chapter 3). Thirty-seven (37)
Neuromuscular warm-up sessions prior to sports practice appear to reduce lower extremity injury risk in female high school soccer and basketball players, reveals study.
Self-efficacy of balance, a psychological characteristic, may provide information regarding psychological risk factors for lower-extremity injury. Validated instruments to assess self-efficacy of balance do not currently exist. The objective of this study was to determine the face and content validity of the Self-Efficacy of Balance Scale (SEBS) for an adolescent population, as well as content validity, construct and convergent validity of the overall instrument. A series of panelists (n = 11) assessed proposed items for face and content validity for self-efficacy of balance. Construct and convergent validity were assessed with active college individuals (n = 74) and female high school basketball athletes (n = 57). Original items were revised to 21 items. Panelists validated both face and content validity of the SEBS. All items were assessed to have the construct of self-efficacy. Evidence of convergent validity supported the proposed construct of self-efficacy, and was found to be relevant to ...

By the end of this descriptive paragraph, you will know whether or not you could like Mortimurs music. Mortimur plays multi-textured instrumental post-rock. They put as much emphasis on melody as they do on dissonance. Each instrumentalist of the trio plays with a seemingly incongruous rhythm and tempo. The drummer varies his punches from frenetic blasts to subdued pops, the guitars weave in and out of each other sometimes piling rhythm upon rhythm. When it works, it sounds like atonal jazz freestyle fed through a rock group or a Dadaist post-hardcore jam. There are undeniable influences of Don Cabellero, Slint, Fugazi, Godspeed You Black Emperor and Tortoise ...
Spatial Dissonance, Subjective Imagination and Locative Media: An Interview with Paula Levine, conducted by Barbara Crow, April 3, 2008 on Skype using Call Recorder, Wi Journal: Paula Levines … recent installation, Signature, is inaugural work in the new Contemporary Project Space at the Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa, California. Signature is a contemporary portrait of seismic history as it intersects with local lives and landscape. The work uses GPS satellites to trigger the sound of the 1906 Bay area earthquake. The same overhead satellites also cause the surface of a projected digital image of Santa Rosa to rupture and reveal the hidden presence of the Rogers Creek Fault that runs directly through the centre of the city. The sound is converted from a selection of seismograph recordings of the 1906 quake. Santa Rosa was severely destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fires. While the Rogers Creek Fault has been quiet for many years, current seismic research refocuses ...
Having witnessed Parts & Labors sonic mayhem in a tiny Phoenix gallery + club, Modified Arts, when the troupe opened for fellow Jagjaguwar labelmates Wilderness, I can attest to the Frankenstinian nature of their technical setup. I knew nothing of the Brooklyn band in advance, but was swept away by their one-of-a-kind approach. Afterwards, the foam of my hard-working earplugs on the verge of disintegration, I picked up a copy of their 2006 release, Stay Afraid, and went on to rate it as record of the year. How is it that an album most critics didnt acknowledge at all came to be tagged with that top honor? Because few bands are breaking down the barriers of noise and melody with such crushing conviction, and that in itself is a feat of strength deserving of high acclaim. If the equally dramatic Liars are bridging the gap with the subtlety of primitive dissonance, Parts & Labor are simply conquering the divide by forcing the two elements together. In chemistry the results of this sort of ...
An analysis and commentary on the social, economic, and political dissonance in Britain and the related attempts at reform underway. This is the first in a series of three articles. Social Uncertainty. 2012 is a year for acute global attention to Britain. The Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations at the start of June, including a four-day holiday weekend, and the build-up to the London Olympics at the end of July were packed with unique spectacles that have attracted popular attention. The British government has used these events to market Britain as a place for visitors and investors, most explicitly in a series of adverts with the common statement that Britain is great.. Yet 2012 is also a year for controversial domestic reforms of key institutions: the legislature, political representation, economic regulation, social rights and responsibilities, education, immigration, and the welfare state. These reforms are the focus of international attention for those seeking lessons for crises in ...

This is an indispensable procedure to pioneer in archeology and other…

Lance Armstrong generates dissonance. The man who became famous for never giving up is giving up. He is a winner and a loser. Yesterday he was quoted as saying I refuse to participate in a process that is so one-sided and unfair. With his unimaginatively weak statement the man who almost single-handedly galvanized attention interest and fascination on the Tour De France and raising consciousness and money and funds for cancer has admitted to being another sports hero impostor. If there would have been truth behind his innocence Lance Armstrong would have fought this, and he did his own cancer, until he was victorious. But this giving up is as clear an admission of wrongdoing as can be, and also stops the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency from testifying about anything else they might know about him, including10 former teammates ready to testify against him. Lance Armstrong is a survivor and a liar; an incredibly strong man, and an incredibly weak man; a source of inspiration, and a source of disgrace ...

Right now. If you answered yes and especially enjoyed the bands debut EP Put On Your Rosy Red Glasses. Then read on.. Michigans See You Next Tuesday are a little redundant in their spazzy chaotic, grindy screamy noise, but they do it acceptably enough and hit all the checkmarks for fans of the genre: unreadable underground logo, quirky band name, off the wall song titles, short spazzy bursts cacophonous dissonance, breakdowns, high pitched screams and ultra deep pig squeals, lengthy experimental track, recognized producer (Andreas Magnussum-The Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet) and a heavy touring schedule. All marks for a band that Ferret should be pushing amid their rather unimpressive slew of recent releases (Maylene & The Sons of Disaster not included).. However, at 18 minutes that comprise ...

For the movie to work cohesively as a story about magic in everyday life, the portent of magic to come ought to have been introduced somewhere sooner in the action than the last 15 minutes. All other early references to magic - a sequence in which the dog seems to appear from nowhere, for one - could easily be interpreted by watchful observers as an editing glitch or one of those overlooked logical dissonances that creep into movies all the time.

I dont know, I gave birth in 1994 in Southern California and even then the retired nurse running the Lamaze class, the nurses on the floor and the LC for the hospital were all pushing breastfeeding (although thankfully RTF formula was included in the rooming-in bassinet and they just asked that I note when and how much the baby was eating. At the time the hospital had rooming in and expected you to do it, but they also had a well baby nursery and you could take the baby there when you wanted to sleep or bathe.
