We recently reported that increased anger/hostility is associated with an increased imbalance of hemispheric activity, regardless of which particular hemisphere is more active (as indicated by increased absolute difference in temperature between the right and left tympanic membrane (ar-lTMT; Propper et al., J Nerv Ment Dis 198:691-694, 2010). In that study,(More)
Tympanic membrane temperature (TMT) offers a methodologically simple and noninvasive means to provide a physiological measure of hemispheric activation, although the mechanisms by which it may be related to hemispheric activity are not completely known. Here, the authors examined TMT at baseline and after a mood-induction protocol. They replicate baseline(More)
Ethnic variation in breast cancer outcomes has been known for many decades. Much of the data derives from the US, whereas disparities seen in the United Kingdom are less well studied. Epidemiologic data suggest that the incidence of breast cancer in black women is less than that of white women, while their outcomes are significantly worse (Bowen et al,(More)
