Contagious Behavior Lab Report
The seminar "Contagious behavior in social context: data from the field and the lab" was presented
by Dr. Andrew C. Gallup, from SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Department of Social and Behavior
Sciences. The seminar centered around the topic of contagious behavior, which can be defined as
behavior that is the result of detecting that same behavior in another individual. So, if one person
exhibits a behavior, another person who was saw that person will copy their behavior. Dr. Andrew
C. Gallup thus decided to study the phenomenon of contagious behavior in humans using gaze
following and yawning, as those are the two most common instances of contagious behavior that are
found in humans. Also, Dr. Andrew C. Gallup looked at how both gaze following ... Show more

One of the first reasons as to why it is important is because through contagious behavior,
psychologists can study and observe how emotions of others are copied by people, and what cues
people use to copy or notice the emotions of others. Contagious moods and emotions are one of the
most common types of contagious behavior (Wang, 2006). Humans are able to accurately perceive
and copy others' emotions without either being consciously aware of the transfer of emotions, or
either of them being aware of the others' mood. The contagious nature of moods and emotions could
likely be due to the fact that humans are extremely social animals, so being able to detect any sort of
cue from the other, whether that be their mood, yawn, or gaze, could just be a consequence of that
social nature. Another reason as to why contagious behavior is important to the field of psychology
is because risk–taking is also known to be a contagious behavior (Stoller–Conrad, 2016). If
someone were to observe another person engage in risky behavior, they themselves are likely going
to engage in risky behavior (Stoller–Conrad, 2016). So, studying contagious behavior may provide
various insights into any psychological research that involves risk taking and risk analysis.
Furthermore, if more is discovered about why people are likely to take risks, there could also be
new discoveries on how to help prevent people from

Psychodynamic Perspective Of Motivation Essay
The Psychodynamic perspective of motivation would argue that humans are motivated by
unconscious drives that build tension states until satisfied (Burton et al, 2015). People have
influential conscious motives (wishes), and powerful unconscious motives (fears) that direct
motivation (Burton et al.). Once a wish (refer to glossary for definition) is achieved it may be
temporally deactivated or appear as less intense (Burton et al.). A fear is a sign of a undesired
condition that is associated with unpleasant feelings (Burton et al.). Arousal is the indication in
theories of motivation and emotion, serving as the driving force or energy in the wake of a particular
motivation or behaviour (PSY 2020, 2016b). "Sigmund Freud Viennese Physician developed a
theory of mental life and behaviour", the Psychodynamic perspective." (Burton et al.). This
perspective believes that "consciousness is like the tip of an iceberg; the mind is like a battleground
for warring factions" (Burton et al.). ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Young people have about sleep is misinterpreted (Burton et al.), to what real sleep patterns look like.
e.g. the expectation; only good sleep, is in deep sleep. Creating an idealistic expectancy – value, and
will decrease the ability to attain sleep, therefore sleep deprivation will occur. Arousal reduces as the
capability to make the desired outcome is not being established. The goal – desire outcome would
suggest that setting the alarm too early will create less sleep. Intrinsic motivation will be the lost
interest in sleep as it is no longer enjoyable and interesting and the implicit motives would be not
yawing when sleepy. A sleep deprivation study will consist of the research method; experimentation,
independent variable; a variety of participants, dependent variable; non – motivated sleep behaviour.
Hypotheses; do participants expectations about sleep interfere with the natural sleep

Women Of The Renaissance Summary
"Despite their regional and religious differences, Renaissance Europeans held a uniform expectation
of women: that they should be chaste, silent and obedient." quoted Melissa Thomson in her book
"Women of the Renaissance".This book examines the Renaissance, defined by the author as the
period from 1350 to 1650. Subjects discussed include the cultural, economic, and political
circumstances of women. The novel consists of riveting new topics each chapter. It began with
yawn–worthy topics such as marriage and religious life styles but later progressed into more
exciting topics like women rebels and women as pirates and fighters. The most interesting chapter to
me was women's success stories. For example Elizabeth Baulacre a successful business ... Show

It was almost like fact after fact with no break in between. With each chapter containing new
information and factual quotes thrown in here and there, I feel I did learn a great amount of the
women's economic, political, etc. roles during the Renaissance. While I did feel like I was reading a
mini text book, I wouldn't dread reading this book if it was assigned. With pictures and paintings
added every so many pages, it helped me develop an idea of what the author was speaking about. I
was overwhelmed by the volumes of historical information in this book, but not so impressed by its
organization. It would have benefited from a more chronological organization or some other means
of keeping track of who was who and when and where they lived rather than new people each
chapter all jumbled up. Maybe if she threw in a timeline in every chapter or so it would benefit the
reader greatly by getting a structure look at what was going on and when.The book is packed full of
information, historical interest and the "voices" of women of the Renaissance. The chapters are not
to long but the flow is not exactly the "page–turning" variety but it is a great source for research.
Some topics I found really interesting even though it was in the textbook format with just fact after

Design Proposal Report For Fatigue Monitoring System
Design Proposal Report for
Fatigue Monitoring System (FMS)
By Alvin Kuan, Sarah Fink, Shian Su and Suliman Altaleb
1. Abstract
This paper presents some background briefing, implantation, ethical responsibility, and action plan
of FMS design plan. FMS is a model purposely designed to detect and measure fatigue variables,
i.e., blinking rate, yawning rate and head tilt for fatigue predictions. In addition, FMS will establish
a crude estimate of fatigue and warns the user if a threshold has been exceeded. This FMS will
provide real–time measurements of fatigue which, if integrated with good risk management practice,
will result in reduced and controlled recurrence of serious safety incidents. The focus the project is
to understand and appreciate the essential components in designing successful and commercially
viable device. This system employs non–invasive electrodes which are positioned specifically for
each of blinking and yawning tests in order to attain electrocardiogram signals accordingly. FMS is
also able to detect head nodding patterns via a gyro sensor specifically located to monitor axial
coordination of head.
1. Background
Fatigue results in an impaired decision–making and judgment, slowed reflexes and responses,
absent–mindedness, memory lapses etc. Fatigue is often a root cause of major accidents. Fatigue is
believed to be the reason of more than 20% of road fatalities in Victoria Fatigue–related accidents
are more likely to result in fatalities

The Story Of My Life
"Sorry, but the coffee machine's broken today. Maybe tomorrow?" the employee apologized. I gave
her a weak smile, my eyes just barely open. "It's fine." I stepped out of the line and found a seat next
to the windows. I stifled a yawn, covering my mouth with the sleeve of my hoodie, and took out my
laptop. I leaned against the window, and closed my eyes for a few seconds, letting the fatigue take
over me. The past few hours were a series of last–minute study sessions and failed attempts to
understand anything at all. My head felt filled to the brim with equations and terms, and I couldn't
wait to relax again. "Mind if I sit here?" I jolted awake and looked up, quickly pushing the rim of
my glasses up. A guy was standing awkwardly beside my ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net

"I've seen you before. You work at the library, nearby don't you?" "Yep. I've been there for a year. I
don't do too much though. Kind of just...help around." "I never got a hold of your name," he asked,
resting his head on his hands. "May," I replied, "But close friends call me Mayonnaise." He laughed,
and I realized that I kinda liked his laugh. It was warm but didn't sound obnoxious. "I'm Mathew,
but close friends call me Matt." "Pleasure to meet you, Matt." He smiled. "The pleasure's all mine."
There was an awkward pause, as there often is. I cleared my throat. "So, you want to keep
studying?" Matt blushed. "Ah. Yes." He fumbled with the pages and looked down. But as I was
reading, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed him glancing at me every so often. For the rest of the
winter afternoon, we wracked our heads, trying to understand half of what we read. ///
"Mayyyyyyy." I looked up from my book. I recognized Matt as he ran into the library, his classic
mop of hair flopping up and down with every step. "You know, there's only 10 minutes left until
closing time – " "Hey um," he said, "Can I still check something out?" His arms were behind his
back and he was fidgeting, a telltale sign that he was nervous. I tilted my head to the side. "You're
nervous about something, aren't you?" He froze and looked down, suddenly having a profound
interest in the carpet. I put my hands on my hips. "Oh, please Matt, I've known you for a year now."
"Can I just please just check

Contagious Behavior Lab Report

  • 1. Contagious Behavior Lab Report The seminar "Contagious behavior in social context: data from the field and the lab" was presented by Dr. Andrew C. Gallup, from SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Department of Social and Behavior Sciences. The seminar centered around the topic of contagious behavior, which can be defined as behavior that is the result of detecting that same behavior in another individual. So, if one person exhibits a behavior, another person who was saw that person will copy their behavior. Dr. Andrew C. Gallup thus decided to study the phenomenon of contagious behavior in humans using gaze following and yawning, as those are the two most common instances of contagious behavior that are found in humans. Also, Dr. Andrew C. Gallup looked at how both gaze following ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... One of the first reasons as to why it is important is because through contagious behavior, psychologists can study and observe how emotions of others are copied by people, and what cues people use to copy or notice the emotions of others. Contagious moods and emotions are one of the most common types of contagious behavior (Wang, 2006). Humans are able to accurately perceive and copy others' emotions without either being consciously aware of the transfer of emotions, or either of them being aware of the others' mood. The contagious nature of moods and emotions could likely be due to the fact that humans are extremely social animals, so being able to detect any sort of cue from the other, whether that be their mood, yawn, or gaze, could just be a consequence of that social nature. Another reason as to why contagious behavior is important to the field of psychology is because risk–taking is also known to be a contagious behavior (Stoller–Conrad, 2016). If someone were to observe another person engage in risky behavior, they themselves are likely going to engage in risky behavior (Stoller–Conrad, 2016). So, studying contagious behavior may provide various insights into any psychological research that involves risk taking and risk analysis. Furthermore, if more is discovered about why people are likely to take risks, there could also be new discoveries on how to help prevent people from ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 3. Psychodynamic Perspective Of Motivation Essay The Psychodynamic perspective of motivation would argue that humans are motivated by unconscious drives that build tension states until satisfied (Burton et al, 2015). People have influential conscious motives (wishes), and powerful unconscious motives (fears) that direct motivation (Burton et al.). Once a wish (refer to glossary for definition) is achieved it may be temporally deactivated or appear as less intense (Burton et al.). A fear is a sign of a undesired condition that is associated with unpleasant feelings (Burton et al.). Arousal is the indication in theories of motivation and emotion, serving as the driving force or energy in the wake of a particular motivation or behaviour (PSY 2020, 2016b).

Women Of The Renaissance Summary "Despite their regional and religious differences, Renaissance Europeans held a uniform expectation of women: that they should be chaste, silent and obedient." quoted Melissa Thomson in her book "Women of the Renaissance".This book examines the Renaissance, defined by the author as the period from 1350 to 1650. Subjects discussed include the cultural, economic, and political circumstances of women. The novel consists of riveting new topics each chapter.

It was almost like fact after fact with no break in between. With each chapter containing new information and factual quotes thrown in here and there, I feel I did learn a great amount of the women's economic, political, etc. roles during the Renaissance. While I did feel like I was reading a mini text book, I wouldn't dread reading this book if it was assigned. With pictures and paintings added every so many pages, it helped me develop an idea of what the author was speaking about. I was overwhelmed by the volumes of historical information in this book, but not so impressed by its organization. It would have benefited from a more chronological organization or some other means of keeping track of who was who and when and where they lived rather than new people each chapter all jumbled up. Maybe if she threw in a timeline in every chapter or so it would benefit the reader greatly by getting a structure look at what was going on and when.The book is packed full of information, historical interest and the "voices" of women of the Renaissance.

  • 5. Design Proposal Report For Fatigue Monitoring System Design Proposal Report for Fatigue Monitoring System (FMS) By Alvin Kuan, Sarah Fink, Shian Su and Suliman Altaleb 1. Abstract This paper presents some background briefing, implantation, ethical responsibility, and action plan of FMS design plan. FMS is a model purposely designed to detect and measure fatigue variables, i.e., blinking rate, yawning rate and head tilt for fatigue predictions. In addition, FMS will establish a crude estimate of fatigue and warns the user if a threshold has been exceeded. This FMS will provide real–time measurements of fatigue which, if integrated with good risk management practice, will result in reduced and controlled recurrence of serious safety incidents. The focus the project is to understand and appreciate the essential components in designing successful and commercially viable device. This system employs non–invasive electrodes which are positioned specifically for each of blinking and yawning tests in order to attain electrocardiogram signals accordingly. FMS is also able to detect head nodding patterns via a gyro sensor specifically located to monitor axial coordination of head. 1. Background Fatigue results in an impaired decision–making and judgment, slowed reflexes and responses, absent–mindedness, memory lapses etc. Fatigue is often a root cause of major accidents.

Psychological Properties Of Ya Essays Beyond Boredom: Studies on the physical and psychological properties of yawning The act of yawning has been observed in all vertebrates, and occurs in humans as early as minutes after birth, so it must have some definitive physiological purpose. Until recently, most scientists believed yawning was a respiratory function, triggered by a surplus of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream. In the past decade, however, studies have suggested that yawning acts as a mediator of activity and arousal levels. The evaluation that follows will examine three such studies and the evidence they contribute to this hypothesis. The first study (1) examined the connection between yawning and activity on a physical level. Previous ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... However, no significant change in heart rate was measured during the subjects’ initial yawns, and no effects became apparent with successive yawns. Interestingly enough, the control group provided very similar data. The results showed that during both the opening–mouth and deep breathing trials, control subjects experienced an initial increase in skin conductance with the first yawnlike action that remained high through the rest of the trial. Also in agreement with the experimental data, the control subjects’ heart rate was not significantly affected by either of these actions. The results show that both yawning and two of its major physical components (opening the mouth and taking a deep breath) cause an increase in skin conductance, which indicates an increase in arousal. The authors of this study did not provide a detailed analysis of the results or of the experiment’s possible flaws. They imply that the results agree with earlier research on the subject, such as the rat experiment previously mentioned. However, previous research suggested that yawning increased because of arousal; this study implies that arousal increases because of yawning. Furthermore, it is reasonable to question whether the testing methods of this experiment may have had an effect on the results.

  • 10. Psychopaths May Not Yawn Along With You Essay By definition, psychology means "the study of mind" and in today's society battling crime is a constant struggle. Crime is often linked to the mentally ill and at times the term "psychopath" is associated with mental illness. Psychologist often have the responsibility of studying and observing the behaviors of the clinically insane or mentally ill. It is a commonly known habit if a person sees another person yawn they are likely to also yawn. The rationale behind this is those who are more empathetic towards other people are more likely to yawn in response to another person's yawn. Obviously a known psychopath is less empathetic towards other people, and a recent study was set out to prove a psychopath is less likely to yawn as a natural response to someone else's (Preidt, 2015). An article in the U.S. News and World Report titled, "Psychopaths May Not Yawn Along With You", describes the experiment. This study is a prime of example of how psychologists use experiments to conduct research. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

Of course this doesn't necessarily mean if a person doesn't yawn they are a psychopath (Preidt, 2015).

Try yawning at them" in contradiction to the scientific article which states, "psychopathy is not simply the lack of empathy" even if contagious yawning was directly related to psychopathy; it is believed there's a spectrum of characteristics that make up a psychopath, therefore the report is somewhat subjective and overall, not a very fair reflection of the scientific article. ...

A clear physiological characterization of a yawn was critical for it to be considered a full yawn. This standardization took place to control for possible variables that are similar to yawns like heavy inspirations and sighing. The researchers defined a yawn as delayed GSR with constant EMG impedance. The validated yawns that meet criteria were then counted and recorded. The control reduces amount of false yawns detected and used in the results increasing accuracy. The yawns recorded play a significant role in the conclusion as they have the power to refute or support the hypothesis in that psychopathy and contagious yawning are related. Thus when coming to the conclusion that empathy, psychopathy, and contagious yawning are related researchers have ensured it is not erroneous.This research establishes a relationship between yawning and social abilities (includes empathy).

But you can't put a leash and a surgical mask on a rhino and march it through the front door of a hospital for a visit. That's why zoos and aquariums across the U.S. are teaming up with pediatric hospitals. They are beaming in video footage of sea otters getting their teeth brushed, tiger cubs getting belly rubs, and pandas munching on bamboo. For kids who are sick or injured, forgetting for just a little while about why they are in a hospital can be a step toward recovery. And connecting with wild animals can help. The videos show creatures from all over the world, like sharks, meerkats, and gorillas. They might be eating, romping around, or receiving care.

Direct Eye Contact During a segment on 60 Minutes, Anderson Cooper met with Brian Hare, an established dog expert, to talk about how dogs show love. Hare states that when your dog makes direct eye contact by staring into your eyes, he is "hugging you with his eyes." Direct eye contact for dogs releases oxytocin in their bloodstream, which is the same hormone that aids new mothers in bonding with their babies. Test this out sometime with our dog when you are interacting normally. Don't try a staring contest though, as your dog may become confused and look away because...well...it's awkward. Don't make it weird, just try to maintain natural eye contact with them when you are doing things you always do together. 2. Sharing Yawns Yes, humans and dogs both have yawn reflexes. Due to the fact that dogs have been bred to read humans, they also yawn when someone they care for yawns, too.

  • 26. The Study Of Human Yawning In Dogs Discussion The current study by manipulating the level of humans' sociability, demonstrates that dogs are more likely to yawn in the presence of a person that has acted anti–socially than someone who has act pro–socially towards them. The results provide support to the stress hypothesis over the empathy hypothesis, which suggests that contagious yawning observed in dogs towards humans is likely to be due to elevated stress rather than empathy. More than half of the dogs yawned during the study, which indicates that human yawning can elicit yawning in dogs. While our result is consistent with some past studies (Buttner & Strasser, 2014; Joly–Mascheroni et al., 2008; Madsen & Persson, 2013; Romero et al., 2013; Silva et al., 2012) , it ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Madsen and Persson (2013) suggest that the age effect may be due to the contagious yawning response becoming more accurate with an increase of age, which could reflect increased awareness of the environment and others' emotions as a result of the developmental maturity of dogs' social cognitive skills. There are at least two plausible explanations for dogs eliciting contagious yawning during the anti– social condition in the present study. The manipulation involved the anti–social experimenter ignoring the dog and giving the dog a command without giving any reward in return. This was aimed to elevate the dogs' stress level during the interaction. The yawning, therefore, could be a response to acute stress as a displacement behaviour (Beerda, Schilder, Van Hooff, De Vries, & Mol, 1998; Hennessy, Morris, & Linden, 2006). Previous studies have demonstrated that dogs yawn in uncertain or novel situations as a response to mildly heightened stress (Beerda et al., 1998; Buttner & Strasser, 2014; Hennessy et al., 2006). Buttner and Strasser (2014) suggest that dogs may perceive human yawning to be a signal of stress and thus the contagious yawning elicited by the dogs is likely to be a displacement mechanism to reduce arousal. Yawning has also been associated with psychological tension or mild stress in non–human primates (Deputte, 1994; Paukner & Anderson, 2006).

However, if that person yawns or gives no sign of interested than that makes me feel annoyed and upset that I prefer to just end the conversation as soon as possible.

While white resin fillings are far less noticeable than silver amalgam, resin has a flat quality that doesn't reflect light like normal enamel, so they can still be noticed. If you want a filling that is nearly invisible, you should consider getting a porcelain overlay from a cosmetic dentist. Here are a few things to know.

You'll receive a temporary filling in the tooth, which will be removed when you return for the second visit. When the overlay is finished by the lab, you'll go back to the dentist to have it applied. Once it's in place, you can chew on it just like you normally would. That's because porcelain is very strong, and it's an excellent material to use on molars that do a lot of chewing and grinding. It also resists staining, so it will retain its gloss and color as long as you brush your teeth daily to prevent plaque and tartar. Paying For An Overlay An overlay is much more expensive than an amalgam filling, but it is less expensive than getting a porcelain crown that covers your whole tooth. You can expect to pay around $900 for this dental procedure. However, the final cost is determined by the size of your cavity. If your cavity is small, you may pay less.

One expects an adult human to know that their child is screaming in distress because he or she is stuck without having experienced it; however, that is not the case with all animals. To argue that a jackal may actually know that its child is in distress because it is stuck would require the idea of the jackal understanding the environment and/or has experienced being stuck itself, rendering the jackal with an understanding for the distress. The final criterion for being fully empathic is the ability to adopt the perspective of another fully. To put oneself into another 's perspective, and see things as they do. Animals cannot fully adopt another's perspective, this disqualifies a jackal from having empathy, or accountability; consequently, from Szymborska's view will ultimately leave it without remorse. On one hand there is the Szymborska view of animals, notably jackals being unremorseful, however, on the other there is the compelling case that De Waal presents in "The Tower of Morality," that although a chimp may not possess morality, it may actually be able to experience some type remorse albeit not the same as an adult human would.

The majority of individuals affected by SCD are those of African descent (Yawn & John–Sowah, 2015). SCD develops hereditarily by an individual being homozygous for sickle hemoglobin (HbSS) (Yawn & John–Sowah, 2015). Individuals will also have another abnormal hemoglobin gene, such as HbSC (Yawn & John–Sowah, 2015). The red blood cells (RBCs) in SCD lose oxygen and become sickled (Yawn & John–Sowah, 2015).

Seeing someone yawn or even hearing the sound of a yawn triggers your brain to do the same. Why is that? In an article by Eliezer Sternbern, the age old mystery may have found an answer. In 2013, scientists in Zurich, Switzerland, had 11 volunteers watch a set of videos while plugged into an fMRI, a machine that tracks the brain's activity. The videos showed faces that were either yawning, smiling, or just normal. As the scientists predicted, after watching the yawning videos, over 50% of the subjects yawned as well. However, the smiling and normal faces caused a drastically smaller percentage of subjects to react. With the yawning faces, the fMRI signal lit up the inferior frontal gyrus, or the mirror neuron network, which functions to help create mental representations of action.
