  • First, the nature of freedom and consciousness has convinced many philosophers that there is a fundamentally non-physical aspect of persons (Perry 1995). (wikipedia.org)
  • one's
  • Private self-consciousness is a tendency to introspect and examine one's inner self and feelings. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metacognition also involves thinking about one's own thinking process such as study skills, memory capabilities, and the ability to monitor learning. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the domain of experimental psychology, an influential distinction in metacognition (proposed by T. O. Nelson & L. Narens) is between Monitoring-making judgments about the strength of one's memories-and Control-using those judgments to guide behavior (in particular, to guide study choices). (wikipedia.org)
  • loss
  • Different types of freediving blackout have become known under a variety of names, these include: Ascent blackout Blackout on ascent Loss of consciousness which occurs as the surface is approached, or even at the surface, following a deep breath-hold dive (generally over ten metres) and typically involves free-divers practicing dynamic apnea depth diving, usually at sea. (wikipedia.org)
  • Shallow water blackout This refers to loss of consciousness during a dive associated with blackout at a shallow depth. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2. The term shallow water blackout has also been used in the scientific literature over many years to refer to loss of consciousness caused by cerebral hypoxia at the end of a deep breath-hold dive during the latter part of the ascent or immediately after surfacing due to lowered oxygen partial pressure caused by reduction in ambient pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • 3. Also used in diving but not in free diving, loss of consciousness while ascending on a rebreather due to sudden drop of oxygen partial pressure in the breathing loop, usually associated with manual CCR and SCR. (wikipedia.org)
  • A current model developed by the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs uses all three criteria of GCS after resuscitation, duration of post-traumatic amnesia (PTA), and loss of consciousness (LOC). (wikipedia.org)
  • lost
  • Freediving blackout can occur on any dive profile: at constant depth, on an ascent from depth, or at the surface following ascent from depth and may be described by a number of terms depending on the dive profile and depth at which consciousness is lost. (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • BIS cannot be used as the sole monitor of anaesthesia, as it is affected by several other factors, including the anaesthetic drugs used (BIS is relatively insensitive to agents such as ketamine and nitrous oxide), and muscle movement or artefact from surgical equipment. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Therefore, although the principles of BIS and other monitors are well known, the exact method used in each case is not. (wikipedia.org)
  • This type, also known as internal-external reality monitoring, is derived from the previous two types and focuses on discriminating between internally and externally retrieved sources. (wikipedia.org)
  • important
  • The developers of the BIS monitor collected many (around 1000) EEG records from healthy adult volunteers at specific clinically important end points and hypnotic drug concentrations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Autonoetic consciousness is important in our formation of our "self" identity. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • A source-monitoring error is a type of memory error where the source of a memory is incorrectly attributed to some specific recollected experience. (wikipedia.org)
  • This type of source-monitoring focuses on discriminating between internally derived sources, such as the individual's memories. (wikipedia.org)
  • depth
  • Latent hypoxia This describes the precursor to blackout on ascent where the partial pressure of oxygen remains sufficient to maintain consciousness, but only at depth, under pressure, and is already insufficient to maintain consciousness at the shallower depths that must be encountered on ascent. (wikipedia.org)
  • sense
  • In the beaded lizards, whiptails and monitor lizards, the tongue is forked and used mainly or exclusively to sense the environment, continually flicking out to sample the environment, and back to transfer molecules to the vomeronasal organ responsible for chemosensation, analogous to but different from smell or taste. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • An efficient conversion of power to light, and the high delivery efficiency, keeps both the illuminator and sample cool during operation, allowing the illuminator to be integrated into the tip of a medical probe or into monitoring systems. (google.com)

  • The processor monitors the physiological parameters, and determines whether the patient. (google.com)
  • 5. The method of claim 2 , further comprising comparing the value of the sleep probability metric to a plurality of thresholds, wherein monitoring sleep patterns of the patient comprises determining a sleep state of the patient based on the comparison. (google.com)
