Analyzing Facial Expressions in Three Dimensional Space Introduction Traditionally, human facial expressions have been studied using either 2D static images or 2D video sequences. The 2D-based analysis is difficult to handle large pose variations and subtle facial behavior.
The American Psychological Association (APA) Task Force on Intelligence was created in response to the debate surrounding the publication of The Bell Curve in 1994. The task force issued its report in 1995 and published a revised version in the February 1996 issue of American Psychologist . The report and article have been influential and are highly cited. In this Hot Topic, we refer to the group as the 1996 task force because the 1996 article drew the most attention to the group's work. Why an APA Task Force? ( back to outline )

The famous experiments that psychologist Harry Harlow conducted in the 1950s on maternal deprivation in rhesus monkeys were landmarks not only in primatology, but in the evolving science of attachment and loss. Harlow himself repeatedly compared his experimental subjects to children and press reports universally treated his findings as major statements about love and development in human beings. These monkey love experiments had powerful implications for any and all separations of mothers and infants, including adoption, as well as childrearing in general. In his University of Wisconsin laboratory, Harlow probed the nature of love, aiming to illuminate its first causes and mechanisms in the relationships formed between infants and mothers.

In psychology , the Big Five personality traits are five broad domains or dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The theory based on the Big Five factors is called the Five Factor Model (FFM) [ 1 ] The Big Five factors are openness , conscientiousness , extraversion , agreeableness , and neuroticism . The Big five has been preferably used, since it is able to measure different traits in personality without overlapping. During studies, the Big Five shows consistency while in interview, self description of traits and observation. [ 2 ] Acronyms commonly used to refer to the five traits collectively are OCEAN, NEOAC, or CANOE. Beneath each factor, a cluster of correlated specific traits is found; for example, extraversion includes such related qualities as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.

Harry Frederick Harlow (October 31, 1905 – December 6, 1981) was an American psychologist best known for his maternal-separation and social isolation experiments on rhesus monkeys , which demonstrated the importance of care-giving and companionship in social and cognitive development. He conducted most of his research at the University of Wisconsin–Madison , where humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow worked for a time with him. Harlow's experiments were controversial; they included rearing infant macaques in isolation chambers for up to 24 months, from which they emerged severely disturbed. [ 1 ] Some researchers cite the experiments as a factor in the rise of the animal liberation movement in the United States. [ citation needed ]
Extensive form representation of a two proposal ultimatum game. Player 1 can offer a fair (F) or unfair (U) proposal; player 2 can accept (A) or reject (R). The ultimatum game is a game often played in economic experiments in which two players interact to decide how to divide a sum of money that is given to them. The first player proposes how to divide the sum between the two players, and the second player can either accept or reject this proposal. If the second player rejects, neither player receives anything.
Robert Axelrod's recent Complexity of Cooperation is a sequel to his celebrated Evolution of Cooperation ( 1984 ). In the new book, updated versions of his papers on the subject since 1984 are reprinted together with a commentary that places them in context. Axelrod's championing of the strategy TIT-FOR-TAT in The Evolution of Cooperation originated a vast literature that ranges from idolisers who credit Axelrod with achievements beyond his wildest aspirations to sceptics who dismiss his work as mere hype. An example of the former appears in Watson's ( 1995 , p. 182) Dark Nature : In 1997, Robert Axelrod discovered that [TIT-FOR-TAT], and as far as we know, only this strategy, is stable and resists all invasions by rival programmes.
Approximately 20, 000â€“25,000 Americans will die in homicides this year, and tens of thousands more will be injured in stabbings or gunfights that could have ended in death. In about half of the homicides for which police can find a cause, the triggering incident seems argument- or conflict-related ( Fox & Pierce, 1987 ); and, in many of these cases, this triggering incident might be classified as â€œtrivialâ€ in origin, arising from a dispute over a small amount of money, an offensive comment, or a petty argument. Such incidents, however, are not trivial to the participants in them. Rather, the participants behave as if something important is at stake ( Daly & Wilson, 1988 ). They act as if they were members of what anthropologists call a culture of honor, in which even small disputes become contests for reputation and social status.
