In this context, prospect theory provides a suitable framework within which decision-making processes can be operationalised. Focusing on a trade-off between health outcomes and behaviour change incurred by chronic disease management (lifestyle change, or ‘self-management&rsq...

This study also contributes to the renewed research focus on the links between labour market trends and population health, prompted by the recent global economic recession. We report research using the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS), a 5.3% representative sample of the Scottish population, derived from census data (https://sls.lscs.ac.uk/). In Scotland (2011) census data include self-reported mental health. SLS data were combined with non-disclosive information from other sources, including spatio-temporal trends in labour market conditions (calculated using trajectory modelling) in the 32 local authority areas in Scotl...

Tybur, Mark van VugtAbstractExcessive meat consumption is associated with a range of environmental problems. In this investigation, we examined the effectiveness of three types of persuasive messages posited to affect attitudes toward meat consumption. The first two messages contained health and environment-related appeals (e.g., the moral consequences of environmental degradation and animal welfare), which are commonly used in campaigns aimed at meat reduction. A third kind of message &ndash...

PinheiroAbstractThe ability to discriminate self- and non-self voice cues is a fundamental aspect of self-awareness and subserves self-monitoring during verbal communication. Nonetheless, the neurofunctional underpinnings of self-voice perception and recognition are still poorly understood. Moreover, how attention and stimulus complexity influence the processing and recognition of one's own voice remains to be clarified. Using an oddball task, the current study...

Conclusion: Polymorphisms in the rs7557939 region of the BCL11A gene appear to somehow interfere in the clinical setting of patients with SCD, suggesting relation with the concentration of MetHb and LDH. This study pioneered an investigation into the association of hemolysis biomarkers with BCL11A gene polymorphisms in SCD.RESUMO Introdu ção: Pacientes com anemia falciforme (AF) apresentam hemólise crônica com biomarcadores séricos aumentados. Os polimorfismos genéticos do gene BLC11A modulam a hemoglobina fetal (HbF), reduzindo, assim, a hemólise. Objetivo: Associar os polim...
