The Psychology of Color In Logo Designs | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it
Adam Atodl's insight:

Color is very important to brand recognition. Scientists and researchers believe certain colors make us feel a certain way about something like this infographic by The Logo Company suggests.

Blue : Trust, Dependable and Strength.
Orange : Friendly, cheerful and confidence.
Black and White : Balanced, Netural and calm.

Learning Real Life Lessons in the Virtual World

Learning Real Life Lessons in the Virtual World | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it
How does a virtual world carry over into kids' real life? Contributor Rebecca Levey has tips that can help.

“Here’s a news flash: your child is most likely going to online places he or she shouldn’t. Like my daughter. She ended up as a scantily clad avatar dancing with a virtual man in leather pants in a virtual club in a virtual world. Only when her virtual dance partner asked her to remove her virtual top (an action, by the way, the site does not allow) did she tell me where she had been. Why did she tell me? Because she was freaked out and afraid. But also because I’ve made it OK for her to tell me about her online activities.”

Open Yale Courses - PSYC 110: Introduction to Psychology | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it

Open Yale Courses - PSYC 110: Introduction to Psychology. This consists of 20 lectures given by Professor Paul Bloom. What do your dreams mean? Do men and women differ in the nature and intensity of their sexual desires? Can apes learn sign language? Why can't we tickle ourselves? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, religion, persuasion, love, lust, hunger, art, fiction, and dreams. We will look at how these aspects of the mind develop in children, how they differ across people, how they are wired-up in the brain, and how they break down due to illness and injury.

Study Confirms: Autism Wandering Common & Scary

Study Confirms: Autism Wandering Common & Scary | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it
A new study confirms what many parents know well: Wandering by children with autism is common, dangerous and puts tremendous stress on families.

Using parent surveys, the researchers found that nearly half of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) attempt to wander or bolt from a safe, supervised place. More than half of these wandering children go missing – often into dangerous situations. Importantly, the researchers found evidence that autism-related wandering does not stem from inattentive parenting. It also found that half of all parents had received no help or guidance on how to deal with the problem.

The study appears online today in the journal Pediatrics. Autism Speaks funded the research through its support of the Interactive Autism Network (IAN), an online project bringing together families affected by autism.

REACH to Rewire your Brain

REACH to Rewire your Brain | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it

Until recent years, the story of your brain was pretty discouraging. When I was getting my degree in Cognitive Science in the 1980s, I was told what you may have heard: you are born with billions of brain cells. Your brain sets like concrete as you become an adult. Neurons die throughout your lifetime, and then you die. So suck it up!

Brain wiring

Neuroscience is rewriting the story of your brain to be much more encouraging. Neuroplasticity is your brain’s ability to rewire and restructure itself due to learning and experience. Few scientists believed in neuroplasticity until recent years. Now the consensus is clear: under the right circumstances your brain physically and significantly changes throughout your life.

Manipulating Critical Periods for Brain Development

Manipulating Critical Periods for Brain Development | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it

Re-opening Windows: Manipulating Critical Periods for Brain Development:

The brain acquires certain skills—from visual perception to language—during critical windows, specific times in early life when the brain is actively shaped by environmental input. Scientists like Takao K. Hensch are now discovering pathways in animal models through which these windows might be re-opened in adults, thus re-awakening a brain’s youth-like plasticity. Such research has implications for brain injury repair, sensory recovery, and neurodevelopmental disorder treatment. In addition, what we know today about these critical windows of development already has enormous implications for social and educational policy.
