  • researchers
  • Last year, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin studied how smartphones affect cognition-defined online as "the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses. (blackenterprise.com)
  • Some researchers believe that the critical period effect is a result of the manner by which intellectual abilities are acquired-that changes in neuronal connections inhibit or prevent possible future changes. (wikipedia.org)
  • cognitive function
  • Because both slightly lower serum sodium levels and mild changes in cognitive function are common occurrences with advancing age, future research on this topic is important -- including determining whether correcting lower sodium levels affects cognitive function. (tasnimnews.com)
  • Shown
  • For example, evidence has shown that a variety of events that are irrelevant to the evaluation of candidates but can stir emotions, such as the outcome of football matches and weather, can significantly affect voting decisions. (wikipedia.org)
  • A child's ordinal position in their family has also been shown to affect intelligence. (wikipedia.org)
  • however
  • However, customer participation should be balanced with a proper mix of cognition and affect enhancing aspects, particularly those aspects that arouse customers' interests and encourages relationship building among them. (igi-global.com)
  • found
  • After adjusting for risk factors known to affect lung and/or cognitive impairment, including age, body mass index, smoking status, education, and the presence of a gene variant implicated in Alzheimer's disease (the ApoE ε4 risk allele), they found the strongest association between impaired lung function and cognitive decline in the test that measures visuo-spatial ability.

  • known
  • This effect is also known as a "customer funnel," "marketing funnel," or "sales funnel. (wikipedia.org)
  • The law of primacy in persuasion, otherwise known as a primacy effect, as postulated by Frederick Hansen Lund in 1925 holds that the side of an issue presented first will have greater effectiveness in persuasion than the side presented subsequently. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Although earlier studies showed that both air pollution and impaired lung function can cause cognitive deficits, it was up to now unclear whether air pollution diminishes cognition by reducing breathing ability first or whether air pollution represents an independent risk factor for cognitive deficit. (greencarcongress.com)
  • people
  • Even understanding that a concept is not part of one's current knowledge is, in itself, a type of understanding (see the Dunning-Kruger effect, which is about people who do not have a good understanding of what they do not know). (wikipedia.org)
  • cognitive
  • Therefore it may not be surprising that heat can affect MS behaviours of cognitive function similar to Uhthoffs phenomenon. (blogspot.com)
  • and stressed the need for the mind to let go of destructive cognitions in a manner not unlike that encouraged by the cognitive-behavioral therapy of Aaron T. Beck and the rational emotive behavior therapy commended by Albert Ellis. (wikipedia.org)
  • whereas
  • A statistically significant reduction in the risk of cardiovascular events was found in favour of GLP-1RAs when compared with placebo (OR 0.89, 95%CI: 0.80-0.99) and sulfonylurea (OR 0.76, 95%CI: 0.59-0.99), whereas DPP-4 inhibitors showed a neutral effect compared with placebo (OR 0.92, 95%CI: 0.83-1.01).

  • stimuli
  • The silencing effect fails when a display contains limited stimuli and it appears that it is the distance between objects from their centers and not their edges that intensifies the silencing effect, and so it would follow that object size is of little importance. (wikipedia.org)
  • research
  • Research has demonstrated that people often fail to detect significant changes to images when the observer is not attending to the changing object fully, thus if attention is paid to the region where the change is occurring then change can be detected and the effect is forestalled. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the context of environmental velocity, research has examined the link between firm collective cognition and perceived environmental velocity. (wikipedia.org)
  • discuss
  • We discuss the fundamental difficulties preventing mathematical modeling of perception, cognition, emotions, and the role of dynamic logic (DL) in overcoming these difficulties. (mdpi.com)
  • least
  • In other words, these were the groups arguably least affected by what we term Hinduism and Indian culture (their status as "tribals" as opposed to lower caste or outcaste was generally a function of the fact that they rejected integration and assimilation into mainstream Indian culture and isolated themselves both geographically and in terms of their customs). (gnxp.com)
  • A classic lacunar syndrome occurs in at least two-thirds of affected patients while hemispheric strokes are much less common. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Studies found that it may have a small beneficial effect on cognition and other clinical measures, though study data was limited and the clinical relevance of these findings was unclear. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been inferred by the authors of the original study, as well as by others that have replicated the effect, that although the task involves motion in space and motion on the retina, it is the movement of the image across the retina that is responsible for the silencing effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the same study, Suchow and Alvarez required participants to complete a fixation-tracking task in order to assess whether Conversely, the illusory effect can be eliminated by moving the eye to follow the movement of the image or monitoring its changing properties specifically. (wikipedia.org)
  • change
  • In the case of motion silencing, the effect takes place in the peripheral vision, such that changes to the area around, but not at, the region of fixation is where change goes undetected. (wikipedia.org)
  • The effect has been attributed to a general tendency to assume that the properties of objects or the features of a scene are stable, the idea that slight discrepancies between the expected scene and the actual scene are the result of malfunction in sensorimotor processes, or that the lack of saliency of a change when it is gradual fails to draw one's attention. (wikipedia.org)
  • They define "velocity homology" as the degree to which velocity dimensions have similar rates and directions of change and "velocity coupling" as the degree to which the velocities of different dimensions affect one another. (wikipedia.org)
  • take
  • These are longer than usual and take a wider look at a key issue affecting society. (flipboard.com)
  • The motion threshold that was found to be required for silencing to take effect was 0.2 rotations per second whilst adhering to the parameters of the original experiments, and this threshold decreased as space between dots decreased, thus demonstrating the combined influence of crowding, global motion and velocity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Attention
  • Setting goals can affect outcomes in four ways: Choice Goals may narrow someone's attention and direct their efforts toward goal-relevant activities and fromward goal-irrelevant actions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Human behavior and cognition are characterized by the ability to adapt to a dynamic environment, whether in attention, action, or both. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • Other signs include increased urination (and accompanying increased thirst), persistent high blood pressure (due to cortisol's enhancement of epinephrine's vasoconstrictive effect) and insulin resistance (especially common with ACTH production outside the pituitary), leading to high blood sugar and insulin resistance which can lead to diabetes mellitus.
