Amy Wenzel Martin's curator insight, December 16, 2012 4:58 PM

Could this have implications for autism spectrum disorders?  

Ian Banyard's curator insight, December 28, 2012 2:15 PM

Perhaps one of the most important discoveries from brain science. More engaged fathers have a dramatic effect on healthy child development. 

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, December 29, 2012 1:52 AM

The researchers found that after oxytocin administration, fathers’ salivary oxytocin rose dramatically, more than 10 fold, but moreover, similar increases were found in the infants’ oxytocin. In the oxytocin conditions, key parenting behavior, including father touch and social reciprocity, increased but infant social behavior, including social gaze and exploratory behavior, increased as well.

What Does Your Musical Preference Say About Your Personality?

Natalie Stewart's curator insight, December 27, 2012 10:56 AM

Music is everywhere. It is impossible to ignore it or avoid it. It has played a significant role in every civilization and people’s sense of identity. As Nietzsche wrote in Twilight of the Idols: “Without music, life would be a mistake”.  

Mood is associated with emotions and emotions are what brings us to music in the first place, so there must be some connection between our musical taste and our personality.

 

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, February 6, 2013 9:05 PM

This article briefly discusses why we listen to music and suggests that the type of music we listen to reveals information about our personality. Do you agree with what your favorite music says about you?

Addiction Treatment Australia: The GATS Program: BULIMIA is an Addiction: Treatment and Rehab in Australia | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Most people have heard the expression binge and purge and recognize that it refers to bulimia nervosa. Whereas bulimia is characterized by this binge-purge cycle, it is so much more than eating and vomiting. True, a woman or adolescent with bulimia will consume huge quantities of food -- often to the point of extreme physical discomfort -- then induce vomiting. If vomiting is not an option, due to inability or general disgust of the behavior, she may turn to excessive exercise or laxative abuse.
