The Type of Smile That Helps Start New Relationships - PsyBlog

The Type of Smile That Helps Start New Relationships - PsyBlog | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it
People feel emotionally close to others displaying this type of smile. 

A ‘Duchenne smile’ is a powerful way of striking up a new relationship, a new study finds. People are highly tuned to the Duchenne smile, which involves upturned lips and crinkly eyes.

And they can easily spot a fake smile, which tends to involve only the mouth and not the eyes.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Diabetes

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Diabetes | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is usually short-term, goal-directed, and skills-based. Therapists help patients identify and solve problems and learn specific skills to change their thinking and behavior so they can make lasting changes in their behavior and general functioning. At each session, patients record responses to their unhelpful and inaccurate thinking, along with steps they have committed to take in the coming week.

A growing body of literature has demonstrated the effectiveness of CBT for people with diabetes. For example, a randomized controlled trial published last year inDiabetes Care showed that CBT enhanced treatment adherence and decreased depression in Type 2 diabetes patients. In this study, participants received either enhanced usual care or enhanced usual care plus a CBT intervention. Four months after treatment, the group receiving CBT intervention showed greater improvements in medication adherence, depressive symptoms, and diabetes control compared to the usual care group. At the eight-month follow up, the CBT intervention group maintained their gains in adherence and diabetes control.

Alex Delfosse's curator insight, May 12, 12:02 PM

This infograph is quite obviously a timeline as portrayed by the use of dates and evolutionary based title. The general design is quite appealing and I like the use of general classifications. That said I feel giving the images a small bold 2pt border could draw more attention to the series of events portrayed .

Dominique Taste's curator insight, May 13, 2:06 PM

Une amusante infographie américaine dont on peut transposer les dates pour faire apparaître 5 étapes récurrentes dans la construction d'un "storytelling" :

1. raconter 1 histoire à une audience de masse

2. raconter des histoires sur mesure selon les cibles

3. utiliser les histoires d'autres pour renforcer sa visibilité

4. devenir un producteur et éditeur d'histoires

5. inciter ses audiences à relayer et raconter ces histoires.

Experimental Methods in Economics and Psychology: A Comparison

Abstract

This article compares the use of experiments as a research method in economics and psychology. We outline the most important differences between the two fields in terms of their use of experimental methods. The purpose of the article is two-fold. First, to provide an overview of areas where economic experiments differ from traditional psychological experiments. Second, to debate experimental economics in relation to experiments in other social sciences.

Why is Behavioral Economics so Revolutionary?

Why is Behavioral Economics so Revolutionary? | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Imagine that a patient suffering from unusually profound amnesia has two toasters in his kitchen. The toaster on the right functions normally. The toaster on the left delivers an electric shock when the toast is removed. The patient’s gasp and quick retraction of his hand indicate that the shock is painful. Because the patient does not remember the experience, however, he does not anticipate the shock the next morning, and is consequently indifferent between the toasters. Although the decision utility he obtains is the same for both toasters, otherwise he wouldn’t be indifferent between them; the experienced utilities are quite different for each of the toasters; something he only realizes when he uses one of them.

Systematic discrepancies between decision utility and experienced utility, as research in the field of behavioral decision theory has been shown, are not restricted to pathological cases. They can also be observed in decision makers whose cognitive functions are normal. These observations question on the idea that observed choices provide a direct measure of utility, and is revolutionizing the way we look at society and policy.
