  • An erogenous zone (from Greek ἔρως, érōs "love" and English -genous "producing" from Greek -γενής, -genḗs "born") is an area of the human body that has heightened sensitivity, the stimulation of which may generate a sexual response, such as relaxation, the production of sexual fantasies, sexual arousal and orgasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • cognitive
  • Finally, we report tentative evidence that autonomic arousal symptoms in worry and GAD vary as a function of individual differences in cognitive control capacity because higher capacity is linked to a greater predominance of verbal thought during worry. (frontiersin.org)
  • recently proposed and tested an integrative model, which posits that only when worriers have sufficient cognitive control capacity to suppress intrusive threatening imagery and shift instead to verbal processing of threat can they avoid the autonomic arousal that such images would otherwise elicit. (frontiersin.org)
  • Coma is caused by disordered arousal rather than impairment of the content of consciousness, this being the sum of cognitive and affective mental function, dependent on an intact cerebral cortex. (bmj.com)
  • Violations of expectancies cause arousal and compel the recipient to initiate a series of cognitive appraisals of the violation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The downward part is caused by negative effects of arousal (or stress) on cognitive processes like attention (e.g., "tunnel vision"), memory, and problem-solving. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • A 2007 review of the effects of stress hormones (glucocorticoids, GC) and human cognition revealed that memory performance vs. circulating levels of glucocorticoids does manifest an upside down U shaped curve and the authors noted the resemblance to the Yerkes-Dodson curve. (wikipedia.org)
  • activation
  • While current models agree that worry persists, in part, because it fosters avoidance of unpleasant internal experiences, they disagree as to whether worry does so by suppressing activation of autonomic arousal or by fostering persistent autonomic hyperarousal. (frontiersin.org)
  • fight-or-fligh
  • It is crucial for motivating certain behaviours, such as mobility, the pursuit of nutrition, the fight-or-flight response and sexual activity (the arousal phase of Masters and Johnson 's human sexual response cycle ). (wikipedia.org)
  • lead
  • It has also been shown that elevated levels of glucocorticoids enhance memory for emotionally arousing events but lead more often than not to poor memory for material unrelated to the source of stress/emotional arousal. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is the urethral sponge, which may also be the location of the G-spot - a structure described as an area of the vagina that some women report is an erogenous zone which, when stimulated, can lead to sexual arousal, orgasms and female ejaculation. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensation
  • Visibility is a measure of the sensation level caused by a target. (visualexpert.com)
  • It is often related to an individual's level of sensation-seeking, meaning a person's willingness to try new things and take risks. (wikipedia.org)
  • high levels
  • However, despite such support, a similarly large body of studies shows instead that worry and GAD are characterized by high levels of autonomic arousal. (frontiersin.org)
  • However, whereas the CognAv model cannot account for findings that worry and GAD are characterized by high levels of autonomic arousal, neither can the ContrAv model easily accommodate the opposite pattern. (frontiersin.org)
  • High levels of cortisol also are associated with weight gain, particularly with the accumulation of excess abdominal fat . (britannica.com)
  • effect
  • To convince the readers further that this effect is unique to arousal, the authors also showed that the signal in the VLPFC significantly explained the variability of the activity in the motor cortex that was directly responsible for the production of force. (ucl.ac.uk)
  • The upward part of the inverted U can be thought of as the energizing effect of arousal. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • These master's level health-care professionals take a holistic approach to a client's physical well-being, explains the American Occupational Therapy Association , by also considering psychological, social and environmental factors that may affect functioning. (childmind.org)
  • With regard to aggression, on the basis of experimental findings, Konečni distinguished among physical, verbal, play, fantasy and other types of aggression, and proposed the existence of bidirectional causation (behavioral and psychophysiological) between the degree of anger (high arousal antagonistically labeled) and the amount of expressed physical aggression. (wikipedia.org)
  • images
  • That model posits, in part, that worry is characterized by suppression of fear-provoking images and the autonomic arousal they would typically engender, by shifting to a verbal mode of threat processing. (frontiersin.org)
  • brain
  • These substances prepare the body to react to immediate danger by increasing heart rate, increasing oxygen delivery to the brain , dilating blood vessels in skeletal muscles, and increasing blood glucose levels. (britannica.com)
  • performance
  • The Yerkes-Dodson law is an empirical relationship between arousal and performance, originally developed by psychologists Robert M. Yerkes and John Dillingham Dodson in 1908. (wikipedia.org)
  • relationship
  • Burgoon's work initially analyzed individuals' allowances and expectations of personal distance and how responses to personal distance violations were influenced by the level of liking and relationship to the violators. (wikipedia.org)
  • capacity
  • Absent such capacity, worry will instead be characterized by heightened autonomic arousal. (frontiersin.org)
  • These zones seem to have a high density of innervation, an efficiency of wound healing, and a capacity to stimulate generalized cerebral arousal. (wikipedia.org)
  • better
  • The association has a broad remit, covering research, clinical practice, and promotion of better care through campaigning at local, national, and international levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • Norway rats and house mice are thought to have evolved increased levels of neophobia as they became commensal with humans because humans were routinely devising new methods (e.g., mousetraps) to eradicate them. (wikipedia.org)
