It has long been noted anecdotally that affect, psychological
state and neurologic state have influences on
inflammatory skin diseases. Disorders such as psoriasis,
atopic dermatitis, acne and rosacea, among many
others, are reported to become exacerbated by stress.
Furthermore, it is widely believed that stress alters
cutaneous immunity. However, mechanisms responsible
for these effects have remained incompletely
understood. Scientific evidence for an influence of
the nervous system on immune and inflammatory
processes in the skin has been developed only relatively
The effect of movies on the appearance of children as witnesses in German
courts is particularly noticeable. Children, juveniles, and adults were asked by
Petra Wolf what they knew about courts.
The source of information they
most often mentioned was movies, especially American crime movies and
courtroom dramas. A group of psychologists from Kiel who published a book
for the preparation of children as witnesses found out that, even after seeing
pictures of a German courtroom, children still believed that the judge would
have a gavel or at least wear a wig.
Optimistic assumptions are made by proponents of ideologies such as transhumanism and singularitarianism, which view technological development as generally having beneficial effects for the society and the human condition. In these ideologies, technological development is morally good. Some critics see these ideologies as examples of scientism and techno-utopianism and fear the notion of human enhancement and technological singularity which they support. Some have described Karl Marx as a techno-optimist....

VThis book mainly uses the first meaning of robot and focuses on
things useful to making robots, but it also includes several references to
mechanisms useful to both of the other types of robots. Robot and
mobile robot are used interchangeably throughout the book.
Autonomous, in this book, means acting completely independent of any
human input. Therefore, autonomous robot means a self-controlled, self-
powered, mobile vehicle that makes its own decisions based on inputs
In order to address these issues, we have attempted to detail many of the key
relevant advances in signal processing. Chapter 1 describes the physiological background
and the specific autonomic mechanisms which regulate the beat-to-beat
changes of timing and morphology in the ECG, together with the cause and effect
of breakdowns in this mechanism. Chapter 2 presents an overview of the primary
issues that should be taken into account when designing an ECG collection system.
Cooperation matters, in daily life and in complex applications. After all, many tasks need more than a single agent to be effectively performed. Therefore, teamwork rules!
Teams are social groups of agents dedicated to the fulfilment of particular persistent tasks. In modern multiagent environments, heterogeneous teams often consist of autonomous software agents, various types of robots and human beings.
Midwives are autonomous professionals whose unique
and specialist contribution affects the whole population:
each of us at the time of birth, the great majority of people
who become parents and the half of these who become
mothers. Women and their families expect a service that
provides clear communication and explanations, effective
teamwork, a safe care environment and continuity of care.
The midwife’s role is to ensure that these expectations are
understood and met.
Acetylcholine is a widespread chemotransmitter in the body, mediating a broad range of physiological effects.There are two distinct classes of receptor for acetylcholine defined on the basis of their preferential activation by the alkaloids, nicotine (from tobacco) and muscarine (from a fungus, Amanita muscaria). Cholinergic drugs (acetylcholine agonists) mimic acetylcholine at all sites although the balance of nicotinic and muscarinic effects is variable.
The existence of different autonomous Web sites containing related information
has given rise to the problem of integrating these sources effectively to provide a
comprehensive integrated source of relevant information. The advent of e-commerce
and the increasing trend of availability of commercial data on the Web has generated
the need to analyze and manipulate these data to support corporate decision
making. Decision support systems now must be able to harness and analyze Web
data to provide organizations with a competitive edge.

In collaborative planning activities, since the agents are autonomous and heterogeneous, it is inevitable that conflicts arise in their beliefs during the planning process. In cases where such conflicts are relevant to the t~t~k at hand, the agents should engage in collaborative negotiation as an attempt to square away the discrepancies in their beliefs. This paper presents a computational strategy for detecting conflicts regarding proposed beliefs and for engaging in collaborative negotiation to resolve the conflicts that warrant resolution.
