The results provide an initial indication of the opportunities and limitations that may arise with the future application of PRS testing in health care systems.

We present these questions and outline a possible hypothesis in this regard. Furthermore, such potential sensitivity of the attention-related markers to clinical dynamics suggests they could be candidates for monitoring and, potentially, early-sensing of clinical dynamics. Therefore, we discuss the potential usability of such markers.

Familiarity and repetition can overcome rationality, a phenomenon psychologists call the “illusory truth effect.” In a 24-hour period during the first weekend of August, two mass shootings—one in El Paso, Texas and the other in Dayton, Ohio—left 31 people dead and 53 injured, as of writing.
