Theories of Dreams Physiological theories are based on the idea that we dream in order to exercise various neural connections that some researchers believe affect certain types of learning. Psychological theories are based on the idea that dreaming allows us to sort through problems, events of the day or things that are requiring a lot of our attention. Some of these theorists think dreams might be prophetic. Many researchers and scientists also believe that perhaps it is a combination of the two theories. In the next section, we'll look at some of the major dream theorists and what they say about why we dream.
MS Trust - Information, education, research and support Where am I?Home › MS People UK discussion list MS People UK is an email discussion list. The content of the MS People UK discussion list is led by its members and does not express the views or opinions of the MS Trust. Talk to Me, One Machine Said to the Other The promise is more than a marketing boast. Aided by microchip transmitters, heat sensors and a fast-growing form of wireless communication, the boast is a measurable fact. Inside each Ocado delivery van is a SIM-card module the size of a postage stamp that monitors the air temperature. The sensor sends data to a computer used by fleet managers back at headquarters near London every few minutes. Ocado says incidents of spoilage of goods have declined since the transmitters were installed last year.
Internet of Things and Kickstarter - Internet of Things News Internet of Things and Crowdfunding Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms are quickly becoming the first stop for Makers and hardware manufacturers to test their product concept on the market, cover bulk upfront supplier costs, and bring their connected products to life. Twine, the sensor block system developed by Supermechanical was the first web enabled product to be a breakout hit raising over half a million dollars in early January, and the Pebble watch blew through Kickstarter's old funding records by raising more than $10 million during its month-long campaign.Below we take a look at some of the successful (and a few not so successful) Internet of Things related projects that are driving this trend and where they currently stand in their development process. // Ongoing Campaigns Unsuccessful in their funding: Will these projects turn into viable companies?
Theories of Hypnosis "any satisfactory theory of hypnosis should also be a theory bearing on psychology at large" (Hilgard, 1991) For over a century scientists and clinicians have proposed mechanisms to explain the phenomenon associated with hypnosis. The key theories of hypnosis, historical and current, are presented here. For the more recent models some knowledge of cognitive psychology is useful. Within psychology most current models of how the mind works what is termed 'executive function' make use of the concept of an executive control system (Norman & Shallice, 1980, 1986) (a description of what is meant by executive control is given on this page).
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Symptoms & Treatment - National Sleep Foundation Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys myelin, a membrane that covers axons in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin serves both to protect axons and to speed the conduction of electrical impulses along nerve fibers. The destruction of myelin results in scarring and loss of nerve cells and can lead to a whole host of symptoms for MS patients, including paralysis, depression, loss of memory, fatigue and problems with vision, balance, bladder and bowel control. However, because it is a disease that progresses slowly, MS can be very mild for some patients and many people with MS are able to lead full and active lives. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health, MS is more common in women than men and is more than twice as likely to affect whites as other races. Fatigue, one of the most common symptoms of MS, can be profoundly disabling.
Building Internet of Things Thomas Amberg from Yaler together Marc Pous with have built the amazing #OktoberfestOfThings, an IoT-enabled beer mug that can count how often and how much beer the holder consumes during the famous Octoberfest in Munich, Germany! The initial design has used an Arduino Nano, a BlueSMiRF-RN-v1 Bluetooth module and a Nexus S Android phone running a Bluetooth to Internet gateway app. They are using an ADXL335 accelerometer and a tilt switch to count sips. (Although it seems they initially came with much cooler ideas on that). Data has been posted on Cosm.com: You can check more photos of the mug and the construction, as well as real-field testing here.
IQ testing, race and controversy: put your intelligence to the test This is, unsurprisingly, absolute poppycock. From a scientific point of view, the notion of race is meaningless. Genetic differences do not map neatly on to traditional measurements of skin colour, hair type, body proportions and skull measurements. In fact, a person who is considered black in one society may be non-black in another.
