Preceptorship is widely used as a cost-effective clinical non-traditional teaching method. However, insufficient research has been done in this area, particularly as to how a successful student-preceptor relationship is formed. The rural setting poses additional challenges as the nursing instructor is not physically present to monitor the course of the ...

The liver is a target of injuries by a number of hepatotoxins such as viruses, bacteria, chemicals, medicines and alcohol. If not treated early such injuries can lead to chronic liver disorders. A number of herbal formulations have been claimed to be effective in managing liver disorders. In the present ...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive inflammatory disease that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. These are debilitating chronic respiratory conditions that are largely preventable due to smoking being a major etiological factor. Once diagnosed there is a steady decline in respiratory function often resulting in chronic hypoxemia and ...

There has been a widely held belief that people with autism spectrum disorders lack empathy. This article examines the empathy imbalance hypothesis (EIH) of autism. According to this account, people with autism have a deficit of cognitive empathy but a surfeit of emotional empathy. The behavioral characteristics of autism might ...

The well-established notion that the frequency of self-interested unethical behavior increases among anonymous people was reexamined employing a more strict definition of anonymity, voluntary unethical behavior, and adult individuals. Anonymity was defined as nonassociability of the participant's trails with respect to unethical behavior. The participant's identity and a monetary reward ...

The present experiment examined temporal discounting across 3 different age bands: adolescents, adults, and older adults (mean ages 14, 46, and 73 years, respectively). A computerized task was employed in which participants were asked to choose between larger rewards available at a specified time in the future--either [pounds sterling]100 or ...

The current study comprised 2 experiments to generate relational responding in typically developing children and children with autism. In Study 1, the children were exposed to a problem-solving task that involved the presentation of 2, 3, or 4 identically sized coins to test and train the arbitrary relations of more ...

The Implicit Association Test (IAT) examines the differential association of 2 target concepts with 2 attribute concepts. Responding is predicted to be faster on consistent trials, when concepts that are associated in memory share a response key, than on inconsistent trials, when less associated items share a key. In the ...

We evaluated formation of simple symbolic categories from initial learning of specific dictated word-picture relations through emergence of untaught or derived relations. Participants were 10 individuals with severe intellectual and language limitations. Three experimental categories were constructed, each containing 1 spoken word (Set A), 1 photograph (Set B), and 1 ...

Stevens's power law ([PSI][various][[PHI].sup.[beta]]) captures the relationship between physical ([PHI]) and perceived ([PSI]) magnitude for many stimulus continua (e.g., luminance and brightness, weight and heaviness, area and size). The exponent ([beta]) indicates whether perceptual magnitude grows more slowly than physical magnitude ([beta] < 1), directly as physical magnitude ([beta] [approximately ...
