Publication date: December 2019Source: Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Volume 188Author(s): Robert Hepach, Amrisha Vaish, Katharina Müller, Michael TomaselloAbstractA natural reaction to receiving help from someone is to help that person in return. In two studies, we investigated the developmental origins of children’s motivation to return help. In Study 1, 18- and 24-month-old toddlers were either helped or not helped by an adult, and they could subsequently provide that adult with help or else observe another person providing help. We measured children’s internal arousal, via changes in pupil d...

GearyAbstractIn a preschool through first grade longitudinal study, we identified groups of children with persistently low mathematics achievement (n = 14) and children with low achievement in preschool but average achievement in first grade (n = 23). The preschool quantitative developments of these respective groups of children with mathematical learning disability (MLD) and recovered children and a group of typically achieving...

This article critically examines the nature of changing modalities in international development and related research in education. The consequences of contemporary trends and trajectories in these domains are considered with particular reference to their conceptual and ethical implications. Drawing on contemporary social theory, comparative and international research in education, and research ethics, the analysis focuses on North-South research and development partnerships, conceptions of ‘best practice’ in the arenas of education and development, the emergence of large-scale social and educational research mo...

Publication date: October 2019Source: International Journal of Educational Development, Volume 70Author(s): Paul BennellAbstractThis is the second of three articles which provide an up-dated comprehensive review of the internationalisation of higher education in the United Kingdom. It presents the key findings of the review with regard to the financial returns to both onshore and offshore overseas student provision. The two main conclusions are (i) the need to maximise the recruitment of high-value onshore overseas students is the main financial driving force for the internationalisation of education in the UK. The income ...

We report relations between responsiveness, reciprocity, and emotional tone and functional connectivity in theta, alpha, beta, and gamma in infants ranging from 6 to 11 month of age (N = 51). Results showed frontal-posterior connectivity in theta was inversely related to all three dimensions of parent-infant interactions. Gamma and alpha connectivity were positively associated with responsiveness and emotional tone, respectively. Results are discussed in the context of the experience-dependent nature of brain development, emphasizing how parent-infant interactions might be leveraged to structure early organization of t...

HamillAbstractThe aim of this study was to calibrate chemometric models to predict beef M. longissimus thoracis et lumborum (LTL) sensory and textural values using visible-near infrared (VISNIR) spectroscopy. Spectra were collected on the cut surface of LTL steaks both on-line and off-line. Cooked LTL steaks were analysed by a trained beef sensory panel as well as undergoing WBSF analysis. The best coefficients of determination of cross validation (R...

In conclusion, whole-fat spray-dried powder had more round shape and showed high homogeneity of particle size, but there were many limitations in powder flowability. Mealworm powders had better flowability and other physical properties, such as emulsion and foaming activities, when the fat was removed. However, the solvent-defatted powders, which lacked fat, were less desirable to consumers due to their lack of flavor. Among the press-defatted mealworm powders, the one milled by a jet mill showed better flowability and physicochemical properties compared to the other powders.

Twenty communities were selected from the study area using a stratified sampling technique. Twenty-four-hour dietary recall, focus group discussion (FGD) and a 3-day weighed food intake conducted in each of the selected communities were used to collect the data, which were analyzed using percentages, mean...

This study focused on investigating quality changes of thermally processed kale purée using an integrated targeted and untargeted approach. Low, medium, and high processing intensities (carried out at 70, 90, and 128 °C) were selected based on predetermined shelf-life targets: frozen-thawed, refrigerated, and ambient storage, respectively. The results show that that physicochemical properties determining consumer acceptability were largely dependent on the treatment intensity. The high intensity treatment resulted in the least favorable quality characteristics (distinct brown color, chlorophyll and vitamin C d...
