Your words may predict your future mental health

Your words may predict your future mental health | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Can the way you speak and write today predict your future mental state, even the onset of psychosis? In this fascinating talk, neuroscientist Mariano Sigman reflects on ancient Greece and the origins of introspection to investigate how our words hint at our inner lives and details a word-mapping algorithm that could predict the development of schizophrenia. "We may be seeing in the future a very different form of mental health," Sigman says, "based on objective, quantitative and automated analysis of the words we write, of the words we say."

To Do or Not to Do. What Marriage REALLY Does to Men - Emma Seppälä, Ph.D.

To Do or Not to Do. What Marriage REALLY Does to Men - Emma Seppälä, Ph.D. | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Many men have cold feet about marriage. They worry about turning into pot-bellied suburban guys with three kids hanging on them like appendages as they take out the trash and clean puke-stains from their mini-van’s backseat. Won’t they miss their Las Vegas trips and envy their single friends? What about that data suggesting that testosterone lowers after childbirth? Is marriage basically the end of manhood forever? But hold on! What does the data actually say? It actually suggests just the opposite! Marriage benefits men... Continue Reading

The social philosophy of Auguste Comte

The social philosophy of Auguste Comte | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Increase of intelligence must mean greater capacity for social affection...


The true social unit is the family; it is essentially on the plan of the family that society is constructed. 


In a family the social and the personal instincts are blended and reconciled; in a family, too, the principle of subordination and mutual co-operation is exemplified. The domestic is the basis of all social life. 


The modern tendency, therefore, to attack the institution of the family is an alarming symptom of social disorganization.

Why we all need to practice emotional first aid | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
