Heaven, so to speak, lies waiting for us through life, ready to step into for a time and to enjoy before we have to come back to our ordinary life of striving. And once we have been in it, we can remember it forever, and feed ourselves on this memory and be sustained in times of stress. —Abraham Maslow, Toward a Psychology of Being (1962) After completing Motivation and Personality in 1954, Maslow turned his attention to a particular characteristic of self-actualizing people that long fascinated him. Many of the self-actualizing people he studied tended to sound like traditional mystics, describing unusual moments of...

Last summer, I woke up one morning to find my right hand couldn't grab the doorknob to turn it open. The next thing I knew was that no matter how many times I shook it, it remained numb. Soon, on a hot June night, a furtive pain traveled from my right elbow to my palm, back and forth, through and through, like a fractious child jumping between hopscotch courts with his full body gravity, determined and ferocious.I am a Chinese woman. Two things I am good at are self-diagnosing and self-preservation. I went to a Chinese massage place the next morning. The lady there told me it was"tennis elbow." Which seemed f...

As a chemotherapeutic agent, bortezomib (BTZ) is used for the treatment of multiple myeloma with adverse effect of painful peripheral neuropathy. Our current study was to determine the inhibitory effects of blocking microRNA-155 (miR-155) signal on BTZ-induced neuropathic pain and the underlying mechanisms. We employed real time RT-PCR and western blot analysis to examine the miR-155 and expression of pro−inflammatory tumor necrosis factor-α receptor (TNFR1) in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. Its downstream signals p38-MAPK and JNK and transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) were also determined. Mec...
