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. But when it comes to following our own speech, a new brain study from the University of California, Berkeley, shows that instead of one homogenous mute button, we have a network of volume settings that can selectively silence and amplify the sounds we make and hear. Activity in the auditory cortex when we speak and listen is amplified in some regions of the brain and muted in others.
Brain and Physiological Psychology
Psychological ("personality") Types According to Jung's theory of Psychological Types we are all different in fundamental ways. One's ability to process different information is limited by their particular type. These types are sixteen. People can be either Extroverts or Introverts, depending on the direction of their activity ; Thinking, Feeling, Sensing, Intuitive, according to their own information pathways; Judging or Perceiving, depending on the method in which they process received information.
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. High Adaptive Level: Defense mechanisms in this group result in optimal adaptation to stress. The defenses usually maximize feelings of well being and do not interfere with the conscious awareness of feelings, ideas, and their consequences. •Affiliation involves dealing with stressors by turning to others for help or support.
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. Yet the dream is within reach for most healthy people given: a bit of knowledge, and a readiness to make some lifestyle sacrifice. I hope that this article compiles all the basic ingredients of knowledge that are helpful in accomplishing refreshing sleep.

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.

“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.” ~ Henry Wadsworth We spend too much, own too much, and want too much — it’s the human condition — and as long as we aren’t aware of it we’ll be a slave to the cycle. Being the ingenious little critters that we are, we’re able to learn, and adapt pretty well. In other words, all hope is not lost, we still have a chance. The truth is that many of us are overworked, sleep deprived, and generally not content with our lives. If we were content, would we be wanting more money, more stuff, more, more more?
liked this test very interesting! ^_^ by Sep 6
The online forensic psychology dictionary (Over 100 Terms as of 18-2-99) ABASEMENT - the need to comply, surrender, confess, or atone. A need to accept punishment. ACTUS REUS - the actual criminal act.
Anytime there’s a mainstream (read: “not an egalitarian safe space”) news report about abused women, some commenters show up to ask, “Why didn’t she just leave?” In their minds, it’s the simplest thing in the world, like leaving a party where you’re not having fun. By not leaving, the abused person has demonstrated that she willingly tolerated her abuse for some suspicious reason, and therefore is most likely somehow partly complicit. For our regular readers who know better, this may be a boring article. But I wanted to have it handy to link the next time someone asks that question: why didn’t she just leave? Remember Dominique Dunne , the young actress who played the teenage daughter, Dana, in Poltergeist but didn’t show up for the sequels?
The purpose of this database is to make it easy for psychology students (and also researchers and journalists) to find and discuss : Peer-reviewed articles on scientific psychology, that don’t require a paid subscription to access Places on the web where these articles have been discussed/blogged about There are other excellent sites which do a similar job (e.g., Research Blogging ), but this one is aimed at psychology, and specifically at the curriculum covered by psychology students . It is my hope that the pages will be filled with research relevant to the current curriculum, so students can find papers easily, and discuss them with myself and other students if there is anything they are unsure about.
The APA’s extensive development process of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is nearing its conclusion. The last stage of the manual’s development began in late June 2012 at the end of a six-week open-comment period for health professionals, patients and families, advocates and others. Throughout the three open-comment periods, which began in 2010, we have received more than 13,000 comments and more than 12,000 emails and letters from you, our readers. This has been an unprecedented approach for any area of medicine, and your feedback has proven invaluable as the Work Groups continued to consider and refine text for DSM-5.

“There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” - Homer Tired after getting a full nine hours and still feeling exhausted? You sleep the sleep of the innocent – you nod off quickly, don’t have nightmares and have no trouble breathing – and still you can hardly get up in the morning and seldom feel totally awake, no matter how long you slept the previous night. You are suffering from a clear-cut case of ineffective sleep. The good news is that, starting tonight, you can improve the quality of your sleep.
One Night Of Sleep Not Enough To Make Up Deficit 10 hours of sleep isn't enough to recharge your brain after 5 days of sleep deficit. DARIEN, Ill. – A study in the Aug. 1 issue of the journal Sleep suggests that a dose of extra sleep on the weekend may be good medicine for adults who repeatedly stay up too late or wake up too early during the workweek. However, even a night of 10 hours in bed may not be enough to cure the negative effects of chronic sleep restriction. Results show that neurobehavioral impairments such as increased lapses of attention and delayed reaction times accumulated across a period of five days when sleep was restricted to less than four hours per night.
O ur minds set up many traps for us. Unless we’re aware of them, these traps can seriously hinder our ability to think rationally, leading us to bad reasoning and making stupid decisions. Features of our minds that are meant to help us may, eventually, get us into trouble. Here are the first 5 of the most harmful of these traps and how to avoid each one of them. 1.
