A variety of scientific disciplines have set as their task explaining mental activities, recognizing that in some way these activities depend upon our brain. But, until recently, the opportunities to conduct experiments directly on our brains were limited. As a result, research efforts were split between disciplines such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, and artificial intelligence that investigated behavior, while disciplines such as neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and genetics experimented on the brains of non-human animals.
When I was invited to write this book, little did I know the odyssey upon which
I was about to embark. This is the first book to investigate and synthesize scientific
data about psychoactive herbs relevant to the specialty of veterinary behavior.
Many of the herbs discussed have impressive proof to substantiate their use; others,
less so; some have no proof at all, at least not yet. Let us not forget the many
mainstream medicines that are plant derived (e.g.
An Empirical Investigation of International Consumer Market Segmentation Decisions They may also be more effective at exerting voice to manage agent
behavior, even without the exit option that school choice policies provide (Hirschman,
1970). Finally, student composition may operate as an employment amenity for teachers and
administrators, reducing the salaries that the school must pay and increasing the quality of
teachers that can be hired for any fixed salary (Antos and Rosen, 1975).
We investigate whether wording, stylistic choices, and online behavior can be used to predict the age category of blog authors. Our hypothesis is that signiﬁcant changes in writing style distinguish pre-social media bloggers from post-social media bloggers. Through experimentation with a range of years, we found that the birth dates of students in college at the time when social media such as AIM, SMS text messaging, MySpace and Facebook ﬁrst became popular, enable accurate age prediction. ...
The manipulation of human behavior provides The physiological state of the interrogation subject as it, the effects of reduced environmental stimulation on human behavior, the use of drugs in interrogation, physiological responses as a means of evaluating information RC, the potential uses of hypnosis in interrogation, the experimental investigation of interpersonal influence.
The current status of studies of online shopping attitudes and behavior is investigated through an analysis of 35 empirical articles found in nine primary Information Systems (IS) journals and three major IS conference proceedings. A taxonomy is developed based on our analysis. A conceptual model of online shopping is presented and discussed in light of existing empirical studies. Areas for further research are discussed.

We analyze collective discourse, a collective human behavior in content generation, and show that it exhibits diversity, a property of general collective systems. Using extensive analysis, we propose a novel paradigm for designing summary generation systems that reﬂect the diversity of perspectives seen in reallife collective summarization. We analyze 50 sets of summaries written by human about the same story or artifact and investigate the diversity of perspectives across these summaries.
We investigate the empirical behavior of ngram discounts within and across domains. When a language model is trained and evaluated on two corpora from exactly the same domain, discounts are roughly constant, matching the assumptions of modiﬁed Kneser-Ney LMs. However, when training and test corpora diverge, the empirical discount grows essentially as a linear function of the n-gram count. We adapt a Kneser-Ney language model to incorporate such growing discounts, resulting in perplexity improvements over modiﬁed Kneser-Ney and Jelinek-Mercer baselines. ...
Most available literature on cockroaches deals with domestic pests and the half dozen or
so other species that are easily and commonly kept in laboratories and museums. It reflects
the extensive efforts undertaken to find chinks in the armor of problematic cockroaches,
and the fact that certain species are ideal for physiological and behavioral investigations
under controlled conditions. These studies have been summarized in some
excellent books, including those by Guthrie and Tindall (1968), Cornwell (1968),Huber
et al. (1990), Bell and Adiyodi (1982a), and Rust et al. (1995).
Sintering is one of the final stages of ceramics fabrication and is used to increase the strength of the compacted material. In the Sintering of Ceramics section, the fabrication of electronic ceramics and glass-ceramics were presented. Especially dielectric properties were focused on. In other chapters, sintering behaviour of ceramic tiles and nano-alumina were investigated. Apart from oxides, the sintering of non-oxide ceramics was examined.
Criminal psychology, forensic technology, and profiling. These three disciplines
have received a wealth of media attention over the past decade. Consequently,
due to public and professional interest, a plethora of books have been published.
The technique of offender profiling, or classifying offenders according to their
behaviors and characteristics, has been developing slowly as a possible investigative
tool since 1841 and the publication of the The Murders in the Rue Morgue
by Edgar Alan Poe, in which detective C.
Research purposes: On the one hand, the research investigates the consumer behavior model, and the
external and internal factors of the consumer’s “black box” that have impacts on the consumer’s behavioral intentions towards mobile services. On the other hand, based on theresults of the investigation of the Vietnamese consumer behaviors, the research provides an analysis of the orientation of the marketing mix employed by the Vietnamese mobile enterprises over the past time and proposes a new orientation to these enterprises for thecoming time.
We investigate the effect of a corporate culture of sustainability on multiple facets of corporate behavior
and performance outcomes. Using a matched sample of 180 companies, we find that corporations that
voluntarily adopted environmental and social policies many years ago – termed as High Sustainability
companies – exhibit fundamentally different characteristics from a matched sample of firms that adopted
almost none of these policies – termed as Low Sustainability companies.
Our goal in creating the Methods & New Frontiers in Neuroscience Series is to
present the insights of experts on emerging experimental techniques and theoretical
concepts that are, or will be at the vanguard of Neuroscience. Books in the series
will cover topics ranging from methods to investigate apoptosis, to modern techniques
for neural ensemble recordings in behaving animals.
Not Otherwise Specified [NOS]). We also review functional brain
imaging studies of patients with various forms of conversion disorder (e.g. psychogenic
motor or sensory changes, psychogenic blindness, pseudoseizures) as well as
depersonalization disorder. As hypnotizability traits have been postulated to be associated
with a higher tendency for developing dissociative symptoms, we briefly refer to functional
imaging studies of hypnosis.
This volume consists of an introduction and two groups of essays by Paul M. Postal, each with a connecting theme. The first, positive group of papers, contains five previously unpublished studies of English syntax. These include a long study of so-called "locative inversion," two investigations related to raising to non-subject status, an argument for the existence of a hitherto ignored nominal grammatical category and a study of vulgar negative polarity items. Each investigation of specific English details is argued to have significant theoretical consequences....
Industry in Jepara comprises a complex network of relationships and flexible subcontracting. The
first aim of this survey was therefore to investigate how these relationships are structured, and
how production is organised and linked to the different market segments, including the sources
of the wood. In addition, we sought to record and quantify these relationships to understand the
contribution of a unit of raw material to the employment, education, and social wealth of people
in the system7
Swiss producers of high-quality consumer products will have to be aware of the
risks inherent to selling products through the multiple layers of the traditional retail
sector with its small stores and the many wholesalers/distributors between
producer and customer: Control over the product is easily lost, and a producer
must make sure that the quality (and brand image) of his products are not
compromised by inadequate handling, storage, delays in delivery etc.
Dense, erudite and sometimes even esoteric, Bonfand’s book is written for the
scholar rather than a more general audience. Nevertheless, one has to acknowledge the
risk-taking and even the tour de force aspect of the book in which Bonfand ponders the
relation between painting and cinema in a very new way. Finally, this work is very
encouraging for further investigations of the phenomenology of film using the
groundbreaking concepts of the French new wave in phenomenology.
