This study investigated age differences in cognitive and affective facets of empathy: the ability to perceive another's emotions accurately, the capacity to share another's emotions, and the ability to behaviorally express sympathy in an empathic episode. Participants, 80 younger (M(age) = 32 years) and 73 older (M(age) = 59 years) adults, viewed eight film(More)
Previously, we found that during films about age-typical losses, older adults experienced greater sadness than young adults, whereas their physiological responses were just as large. In the present study, our goal was to replicate this finding and extend past work by examining the role of cognitive functioning in age differences in emotional reactivity. We(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examined the impact of context information on emotion recognition from a life-span developmental perspective. The main prediction was that age-related deficits in emotion recognition will only be evident in context-poor tasks. METHODS A sample of 48 younger (M(age) = 23 years) and 35 older women (M(age) = 70 years) watched 48 film(More)
The strong reciprocity model of the evolution of human cooperation (1) postulates that positive and negative reciprocity are associated. Recently in PNAS, Yamagishi et al. (2) reported results that challenged this proposition by showing that the tendency to reject unfair offers in the ultimatum game is not related to various indicators of positive(More)
The results from a numerical investigation of inertial viscoelastic flow past a circular cylinder are presented which illustrate the significant effect that dilute concentrations of polymer additives have on complex flows. In particular, effects of polymer extensibility are studied as well as the role of viscoelasticity during threedimensional cylinder wake(More)
A 68-year-old woman with resistant essential arterial hypertension despite the regular use of four antihypertensive drugs was referred to the catheter-based renal sympathetic denervation. Due to the complicated anatomy, insertion of the guiding catheter into the left renal artery was not stable. Thus, renal denervation of only the right renal artery was(More)
Using cross-sectional and longitudinal data from a national sample spanning the adult lifespan, age differences in anger and sadness were explored. The cross-sectional and longitudinal findings consistently suggest that the frequency of anger increases during young adulthood, but then shows a steady decrease until old age. By contrast, the frequency of(More)
In Drosophila photoreceptors the transient receptor potential-like (TRPL), but not the TRP channels undergo light-dependent translocation between the rhabdomere and cell body. Here we studied which of the TRPL channel segments are essential for translocation and why the TRP channels are required for inducing TRPL translocation. We generated transgenic flies(More)
Family members of the cationic transient receptor potential (TRP) channels serve as sensors and transducers of environmental stimuli. The ability of different TRP channel isoforms of specific subfamilies to form heteromultimers and the structural requirements for channel assembly are still unresolved. Although heteromultimerization of different mammalian(More)
