  • We report the results of experiments on economic decisions with two populations, one of healthy elderly individuals (average age 82) and one of younger students (average age 20). We examine confidence, decisions under uncertainty, differences between willingness to pay and willingness to accept and the theory of mind (strategic thinking). Our findings indicate that the older adults’ decision behavior is similar to that of young adults, contrary to the notion that economic decision making is impaired with age.

  • The area of work that is, perhaps, most readily associated with work in the realm beyond the rationality and control is research on emotions. A num- ber of broad domains of scholarship can be seen as working to describe the emotions or feelings experienced in learning situations. Research on the brain, spurred by advancements in imaging technology, offers tanta- lizing glimpses into the relationship between emotions, cognition, and behavior. Another general domain in the study of emotions focuses on students’ feelings about themselves or their performance.

  • Organic milk production systems rely on ecologically based practices that virtually prohibit the use of antibiotics and hormones in the cow herd and the use of synthetic chemicals in the production of cattle feed. Organic milk production systems also attempt to accommodate the animals’ natural nutritional and behavioral requirements, for example ensuring that dairy cows have access to pasture (Greene and Kremen).

  • Global Scaling Up Handwashing is a Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) project focused on learning how to apply innovative promotional approaches to behavior change to generate widespread and sustained improvements in handwashing with soap at scale among women of reproductive age (ages 15-49) and primary school-aged children (ages 5-9). The project is being implemented by local and national governments with technical support from WSP. For more information, please visit

  • Based on the light-reactive behavior of siliceous sponges, their intriguing quartz glass-based spicular system and the existence of a light-generating luciferase [Mu ¨ller WEG et al.(2009) Cell Mol Life Sci66, 537–552], a pro-tein potentially involved in light reception has been identified, cloned and recombinantly expressed from the demosponge Suberites domuncula.

  • This paper contributes to the literature on modeling the behavior of the futures basis on several fronts. 2 Specifically, the paper investi- gates nonlinearities in basis adjustment toward its equilibrium value and proposes a novel approach to modeling the behavior of the basis inspired by the prediction of the theoretical arguments mentioned above. Using data for the S&P 500 and the FTSE 100 indices during the post-crash period since 1988, the authors provide strong evidence of nonlinear mean reversion in the futures basis for both indices consid- ered.

  • Now, just having a reactive mindset is not, in itself, a bad thing. For instance, if we don’t react immediately to putting our hand on a stove burner that has been turned on, we are going to get burnt! We use this reactive mindset in many areas of life. A machine breaks down so we buy a new machine. Or sales drop so we launch a new ad campaign. This is called event-driven behavior, which in itself is not a bad thing.

  • AT is recognized as the largest energy store of free fatty acids (FFA) and triglycerides (TG), and more recently as an endocrine organ that regulates the secretion of adipokines, which coordinate energy metabolism, insulin sensitivity and feeding behavior, not only in adults but also in pediatric populations. Imbalance between visceral and subcutaneous AT is capable of altering its physiology.

  • The factors that underlie the correlations between sociality, the formation of strong social bonds, and fitness outcomes are not fully understood, and there is some uncertainty about the direction of the causal links between these behaviors and fitness outcomes. However, a growing body of evidence suggests that sociality affects physiology. When rats (Rattus norvegicus) are housed in isolation, they become hypervigilant and fearful of new stimuli (Cavigelli and McClintock 2003; Cavigelli et al. 2006).
