Compared to associative pathways to fear, non-associative pathways are more frequently endorsed by people with evolutionary-relevant fears such as heights and water. However, the ways in which onset pathways are often defined and used can generate biases, and pathway ascriptions have been found to be highly unstable over time. The ...

Achievement, engagement and learning require skilled and strategic behaviour management in classrooms. New Zealand schools are about to undergo a major shift in the management of disruptive behaviour in the education system (Ministry of Education, 2010a). As part of the Positive Behaviour for Learning policy the Ministry of Education aims ...

The relationship between reading difficulties (RD) and psychosocial problems is well-documented; however, less is known about possible protective factors. This study explored the possible protective functions of two socio-cognitive abilities (theory of mind and emotion understanding) in children with RD. Participants were 21 children with RD, and a matched group ...

In this paper we present findings on individual level variation in individualis--collectivism (IC) among four ethnic groups (New Zealand European-NZE, Maori, Pacific Islanders-PI and Chinese) within the New Zealand context, using the Individualism-Collectivism Interpersonal Assessment Inventory (ICIAI) developed by Matsumoto, Preston, Brown and Kuppersbusch (1997). The investigation tested the reliability ...

Finding the optimal nutrition regimen for enhanced recovery is fundamental in enhancing exercise training and performance. Therefore, research has aimed to examine post-exercise nutritional strategies for optimal recovery. Because muscle glycogen is the primary substrate utilised during high-intensity exercise, it must be replenished. Recent research has examined the effectiveness on ...

Objective: Biokinetics, a profession registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), address inter alia chronic diseases of lifestyle (CDL) with exercise as treatment modality. The purpose of this investigation is to determine the potential market demand for biokinetic services in the private health care sector of South ...

Background: The thermophysiology of athletes with spinal cord injuries (SCI) is not well understood. Spinal cord lesions impact muscle mass, thermoregulatory neural signals and circulatory function. Understanding SCI thermoregulation physiology would benefit exercise function. Therefore, this study was designed to describe heat storage in the upper and lower bodies of ...

We report on a young adolescent diagnosed with early-onset schizophrenia and subsequently treated with clozapine. Clozapine is often used as the last line of treatment for patients with schizophrenia, even in the paediatric population. This report highlights the usefulness and challenges of using clozapine in adolescents with schizophrenia.

The validity of clinical psychological tests remains a challenging issue, especially when the tests are applied in cultural groups other than those for which they were originally developed. Before the appearance of the International Test Commission (ITC) Guidelines, the commonly used cross-cultural test adaptation approaches often neglected intergroup differences in ...

Fear perception and subsequent appropriate behavioural response are crucial for the adaptation of species. During the past few decades functional neuro-imaging studies in humans exploring the neural basis of fear have contributed significantly to the understanding of its mechanisms. Imaging studies help to clarify the role of the amygdala-based neurocircuitry ...
