What to see On the right you see a circle of blue-violettish (=magenta) patches, one of which briefly disappears, circling around. Let your gaze rest on the central fixation cross, but observe with your “inner eye” the patches just when they disappear. With good fixation, you should see a strong greenish colour whenever the violet patch has disappeared. When you are fixating well, after a few cycles you will actually see a rotating green spot! If your gaze is really steady, the magenta patches will disappear completely, leaving only a rotating green spot (this is easier if you reduce saturation to, e.g., ≈20%); when you then shift your gaze the magenta circle reappears.
For as long as I can remember, I've had this implicit sense of a relationship between letters and colors. To me, every letter seems to have a color of its own. When I think of a word, I am aware of its color and the color of its component letters. The phenomenon is consistent enough that I can rely on it to help me remember things like phone numbers and proper names. I call it my letter-color synaesthesia . Webster's Dictionary defines synaesthesia as "the production of a mental sense-impression relating to one sense by the stimulation of another sense."

The field has a long history of making major contributions to education and health care in both treatment and prevention arenas.
Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle , which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. How is this possible?

Las bombas caen del cielo, pero alguien las lanza. La bomba atómica sobre la ciudad de Hiroshima, del 6 de agosto de 1945, tuvo unos padres ideólogos, unos constructores, otros que daban las órdenes y otros que las acataban y apretaban el botón. Al final de una larga cadena de poder y muerte estaba un joven comandante de 26 años, Claude R.
Defense mechanisms are automatic psychological processes that protect an individual from anxiety and the awareness of internal or external threats or stressors. People are often unaware of these processes as they operate (although others may be painfully aware of them!). Defense mechanisms can be classified into groups or levels that indicate how they affect an individual's functioning.
Like the mute button on the TV remote control, our brains filter out unwanted noise so we can focus on what we’re listening to.
Foreword It is everyone's dream to wake up fresh, happy, and ready for action on a daily basis. Sadly, in the modern world, only a small minority lives that dream.
Noah Goldsteinâ€™s, Steve Martinâ€™s (no, not that Steve Martin â€™s) and Robert Cialdiniâ€™s Yes! 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive is a pop psych book, where a bunch of research in psychology is distilled into one readable volume. 50 scientifically proven ways constitute 50 chapters of the book, longest of which take 7 pages.
Generalized anxiety disorder ( GAD ) is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational worry about everyday things that is disproportionate to the actual source of worry.

photo: meddygarnet Happiness is, by nature, a subjective quality with a definition like a moving target. There is scant evidence — qualitative or quantitative — to lend convincing support to those life variables most critical in determining individual happiness, which is likely why past researchers committed to the scientific method rarely tried to tackle the subject.
En un futuro, el aprendizaje será mucho más efectivo como agente sistémico. Por ello, nos inclinamos hablar de ecosistemas de aprendizaje ( blog de interés ), donde la tecnología será un componente más dentro de un todo como sistema. El ejemplo de Complex Adaptative System (CAS) es un buen elemento para estructuras cambiantes y no estables. Los patrones se infieren de los múltiples datos en un contexto determinado. El futuro es apasionante en cuanto a las posibilidades de aplicación en datos + contexto. Una de las competencias clave será el poder entender y cambiar/transformarse con el feedback de los datos.
