Potentially dangerous stimuli are important contenders for the capture of visual-spatial attention, and it has been suggested that an evolved fear module is preferentially activated by stimuli that are fear relevant in a phylogenetic sense (e.g., snakes, spiders, angry faces). In this study, a visual search task was used to test this hypothesis by directly(More)
The inheritance of A-V conduction time in Polynesians has been examined, using ECGs taken from the population of the Tokelau Islands. As has been demonstrated in other racial groups, A-V conduction time was influenced by sex, age, and heart rate. Complex segregation analysis provides evidence for a significant polygenic influence on A-V conduction, but no(More)
