Discussion of readings due each week as an electronic posting to a website (e.g., blog) created for this purpose using a service like wordpress or blogspot. The student, Kristen Ellard, will summarize the reading, provide a comment, and note what questions remain unanswered, and pose some questions for readers to the blog that can relate to their personal experience. Kristen will advertize the blog to science/psychology sites and will respond to comments by readers. [Note: we do not expect many readers; but if there are, then her responses can be selective.] Grading will be based on quality of Kristen’s blog postings (40%) ...
Integral Options Cafe: Early brain-body impact of emotional arousal
Integral Options Cafe offers a place to discuss all things related to a Buddhist, integral worldview. While theory is important (Buddhism, Ken Wilber, Spiral Dynamics, psychology, and Integral Theory), so is politics, art & poetry, human values, popular culture, and humor. I invite comments, different points of view, and anything that can add to a civil discussion of living in an integral world. This is a very interesting article from Frontiers in Human Neuroscience . They seem to be confirming Antonio Damasio's version of body-based feelings as the foundation for emotions . Current research in affective neuroscience ... market research, surveys and trends
Affective Neuroscience with Jaak Panksepp (BSP 65) — Brain Science ...
Dr. Panksepp has done pioneering work on the neural origins of emotions. In this interview we discuss how his work challenges some of the common assumptions about emotions and some of the important implications of his discoveries. New listeners may want to go back and listen to Episode 11 for an introduction to the neuroscience of emotion.

Getting in touch with your unconscious attitudes
Ph.D. is a Professor of Psychology and Director of the Office of National Scholarship Advisement at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. See full bio Does the pathway to fulfillment lie in our unconscious attitudes? The notion that dangerous desires and unwelcome fears lurk in our unconscious minds is a cornerstone of Freud's theory and underlies the work of practicing psychoanalysts even today. Attacks on Freudian theory by research psychologists challenge this proposal, but accumulating evidence from surprising places suggests that he may have been onto something important. The surprising places are social psychology ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

USC Neuroscience: Antoine Bechara
The neurology and neuropsychology of complex behaviors: decision-making - One of the main focuses of my research is to understand the neural processes underlying how we make decisions and choices. Researchers in the field of human decision-making have used a variety of methods, including functional neuroimaging, and work with brain damaged patients. Among the influential work using the brain lesion method has been the work I did with Antonio and Hanna Damasio, and the rest of the group, at the University of Iowa. This research has focused on the decision-making capabilities of patients who have suffered injury to the ...

What is the competence motivation model/theory? - Yahoo! Answers
Communication competence is the ability to choose a communication behavior that is both appropriate and effective for a given situation. Interpersonal competency allows one to achieve their communication goals without causing the other party to lose face. The model most often used to describe competence is the component model (Spitzberg & Cupach, 1984) which includes three components: 1) knowledge, 2) skill, and 3) motivation. Knowledge simply means knowing what behavior is best suited for a given situation. Skill is having the ability to apply that behavior in the given context. Motivation is having the desire to communicate in ...
The structure of scientific awesomeness | Ask MetaFilter
You know what it's like when the sun breaks through storm clouds and the whole landscape is illuminated? Like that, or approaching that, but in journal-article form. I have a particular interest in review articles, in the life sciences, and in stuff of relatively recent vintage, but recommendations of papers from other areas and eras are welcome too. The problem is that such illumination, at least in the fields I've been involved in (neurology, psychiatry, experimental psychology) often doesn't come with a single journal article. Modern scientific articles tend to be published to relay building-block sorts of ...
