Differences in facial affect recognition between non-offending and offending drivers
Abstract It is assumed that emotion recognition is a complex process related to prosocial and antisocial behaviour (Marsh & Blair, 2008). The present study focuses on the connection between
[Pathologic changes in the lungs of deer spontaneously infected with nematodes from the Protostrongylidae family].
Lungs of 30 animals of the red deer attacked by parasitic helminths were submitted to a histological examination, and the changes which were caused by the nematodes of Protostrongylidae family were estimated.
Perception of Juvenile Delinquents of Group Therapy Approaches
The present study focuses on juvenile delinquents’ perception of two procedures used in group therapy. Eleven juvenile delinquents, participants of a probation program, were asked to share their
Seat Belts Unfastened: Non-seat Belt Use in the Czech Republic
More than 56 thousand drivers lost their licenses due to traffic offences in the Czech Republic between the years of 2006 and 2013. In almost half of the cases the ban from driving associated with
First aid as an important traffic safety factor – evaluation of the experience–based training
IntroductionFirst aid is a factor that reduces damage to health and loss of life in traffic accidents. It is therefore necessary to make even the lay population ready to give at least basic first
A neuroscientific evaluation of driver rehabilitation: Functional neuroimaging demonstrates the effectiveness of empathy induction in altering brain responses during social information processing
The findings suggest that empathy induction is an effective form of driver rehabilitation, and the utility of neuroscientific techniques for evaluating and improving rehabilitation programs is suggested.
Canadian Steinernematid (Nematoda) Isolates and Their Infectivity, under Cold Conditions, to Greater Wax Moth (Galleria mellonella) Larvae
The rate of infection, evaluated by Anderson’s model, proved to be a useful tool for comparing the infectivity of various isolates and species of entomopathogenic nematodes, as it is independent of experimental conditions.
Modes of entry of the first-stage larvae of Elaphostrongylus cervi (Nematoda: Protostrongylidae) into pulmonate snails Arianta arbustorum and Helix pomatia.
The present results indicate that only those protostrongylid larvae which actively penetrated the superficial epithelium of the snail sole play an important role in the life cycle.
Preliminary observation of the susceptibility of some freshwater snails to the infection with Varestrongylus sagittatus (Nematoda: Protostrongylidae).
It was confirmed that the snail species of the Basommatophora that were studied can act as intermediate hosts of the nematode V. sagittatus under laboratory conditions.
