This study tested whether mothers with interpersonal violence-related posttraumatic stress disorder (IPV-PTSD) vs healthy controls (HC) would show greater limbic and less frontocortical activity when viewing young children during separation compared to quiet play. Mothers of 20 children (12-42 months) participated: 11 IPV-PTSD mothers and 9 HC with no PTSD.(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors sought to study activity in neural circuits that subserve the inhibition of a semi-involuntary motor behavior, eye blinking, in children and adults with Tourette syndrome and in healthy comparison subjects. METHOD Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to scan 120 participants (51 with Tourette syndrome and 69 comparison(More)
This study records the incidence of glioblastoma multiforme, astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma in the white and Black patients in the Memphis Statistical Metropolitan Area (MSMA) during a 10.5-year period from 1 January 1984 through 30 June 1994. During this time, only six hospitals performed craniotomy and computer tomography (CT) scanning was routine in(More)
This study examined 2 methodological issues that might influence the fading affect bias (FAB). The FAB occurs when people report that the affective intensity associated with unpleasant events decreases over time more than the intensity of positive events. In the experiments reported here we investigated the FAB using a between-subject design (Experiments 1a(More)
This study explores an approach that simultaneously estimates Antarctic mass balance and glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) through the combination of satellite gravity and altimetry data sets. The results improve upon previous efforts by incorporating a firn densification model to account for firn compaction and surface processes as well as reprocessed(More)
Self-report evidence suggests that consumers prefer green products (i.e., pro-environmental) to standard products, but this is not reflected in purchase behaviors. To understand this disconnect, we exposed participants in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner to green and standard ads. After viewing each ad, participants rated liking and perceived(More)
The false consensus effect (FCE), the tendency to project our attitudes and opinions on to others, is a pervasive bias in social reasoning with a range of ramifications for individuals and society. Research in social psychology has suggested that numerous factors (anchoring and adjustment, accessibility, motivated projection, etc.) may contribute to the(More)
In this study we address the question of whether regional gravity field modeling techniques of GRACE data can offer improved resolution over traditional global spherical harmonic solutions. Earlier studies into large, equatorial river basins such as the Amazon, Zambezi and others showed no obvious distinction between regional and global techniques, but this(More)
