Narcissism and concern: the relationship of self-object needs and narcissistic symptoms with healthy and pathological concern.

NARCISSISM AND CONCERN: THE RELATIONSHIP OF SELF-OBJECT NEEDS AND NARCISSISTIC SYMPTOMS WITH HEALTHY AND PATHOLOGICAL CONCERN. Am J Psychoanal. 2016 Mar;76(1):71-84 Authors: Friedemann Y, Tolmacz R, Doron Y Abstract While concern and narcissism seem to be contradictory in nature, clinical evidence and theoretical writings on pathological forms of concern-tracing their origin to deficiencies in early relationships with primary caretakers-suggest that the actual relationship between these two characteristics might be much more complicated. We respond to a study aimed to add empirical data to the clinical and theoretical knowledge examined the relationships between self-object functions, types of narcissism and pathological concern. The findings of the study showed that pathological concern was positively associated with self-object needs and that this association was mediated by covert narcissism. Our discussion focuses on the developmental and psychodynamic sources of pathological concern, as well as its significance in the intrapersonal and interpersonal domains.

A newly isolated yeast strain, namely Dipodascus capitatus A4C is a specific yeast that could produce lipases in both extracellular and cell-bound forms. Various low-cost substrates were applied as single or mixed carbon sources for D. capit...

However, phylogenetic relationships are important for understanding historical connections within and among biogeographical regions. Phylogeny-based delineation of biota is a burgeo...

However, earlier biochemical reconstitution systems had a serious technical limitation, namely very poor initiation efficiency. Due to the poor efficiency of the reaction and trace amounts of proteins involved in the pre-initiation complex (PIC) assembly, detection of transcription and PIC formation was only possible by the synthesis of a radiolabeled transcript and...

Enhancers are known to be associated with certain epigenetic signatures. Machine learning tools, such as CSI-ANN, ChromHMM, and RFECS, were developed for predicting enhancers using various epigenetic features. However, predictions by different tools vary widely and quite a significant portion of enhancer predictions does not agree. Thus, computational methods for enhancer prediction should be further developed. In this paper, a...
