Physical exercise is known to stimulate the release of endorphins, creating a mild sense of euphoria that has rewarding properties. Using pain tolerance (a conventional non-invasive assay for endorphin release), we show that synchronized training in a college rowing crew creates a heightened endorphin surge compared with a similar training regime carried(More)

In this paper, we present the results of a false-belief task concerning humans and God run with a sample of Maya children aged 4 to 7, and place them in(More)

The disparity between the number of children affected by the conditions which are supposed to cause hearing loss and the number of children who are actually deaf, has never been satisfactorily explained. Clinical features observed in children with surgically proven round window(More)
