  • What to Know about Children’s Nighttime Bedwetting

    World of Psychology

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Toilet training can be a stressful process. This is particularly the case for children who achieve daytime dryness but continue to wet themselves — and the bed — overnight. It may leave you wondering what’s normal and what you can do to help your child. Nighttime wetting is one of the most common urologic conditions in childhood. The vast majority of cases are not related to a physical cause. Most commonly, nighttime wetting happens in children who are very deep sleepers; their brains and bladders aren’t communicating as they should while they sleep. It is not your child’s…

    Mindfulness and Focus are hot topics right now among the Leadership and Management communities.

The word “mindfulness” can conjure up all kinds of images, usually involving people in business attire sitting cross-legged on boardroom tables.

    In a recent New York Times editorial, psychologist Gary Marcus noted that neuroscience is still awaiting a ‘bridging’ theory that elegantly connects neuroscience with psychology. This reflects a common belief in cognitive science that there is a ‘missing law’ to be discovered that will tell us how mind and brain are linked – but it is quite possible there just isn’t one to be discovered. Marcus, not arguing for the theory himself, describes it when he writes: What we are really looking for is a bridge, some way of connecting two separate scientific…

    Black truffles, also known as Périgord truffles, have a syrupy sweet flavor and are highly prized in haute cuisine. They are fungi that grow on the roots of oak and hazelnut trees, and are the second most expensive truffle species. The black truffle uses reversible epigenetic processes to regulate its genes, and adapt to changes in its surroundings. The 'methylome' illustrates how the truffle deals with its complex genome's repeating elements and 'jumping genes.' The authors say this may shed light on how traits like aroma and color are controlled.

  • Scientists Uncover a Surprising World of Microbes in Cheese Rind

    Greg Miller
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:30 am
    The rind of good cheese is a thriving microbial community. A single gram—a tiny crumb—of cheese rind contains 10 billion microbial cells, a mix of bacteria and fungi that contribute delicious and sometimes funky flavors. But even though humans have been making cheese for thousands of years, we know very little about what all those […]

Her heart was stopped. In other words, she was dead. Somewhat inexplicably, the paramedics continued to work on her, and so did doctors in the […]

  • Fight, Flight or Freeze: The Stress Response

    Maureen Werrbach, MA, LCPC
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:35 am
    Imagine the following scenarios: 1. During a staff meeting that you led and thoroughly prepared for, your boss criticizes you for not completing a task that was someone else’s responsibility. All eyes are on you. You feel flushed, your heart starts racing, and you have you the urge to yell at your boss (even though you don’t). 2. You walk into class late and to find everyone putting their books away for an apparent test that you were not aware of, nor ready for. Your heart seems to stop, knees become weak, you begin to sweat, and you suddenly feel this intense urge to turn around and race…
  • Introducing Childhood Emotional Neglect

    John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
    31 Jul 2014 | 7:35 am
    I’m pleased to introduce a new blogger to Psych Central, Jonice Webb, Ph.D. who will be blogging on the topic of childhood emotional neglect (CEN). Here’s how she describes becoming interested in this topic: During twenty years of practicing psychology, I started to become aware of an invisible factor from people’s childhoods which weighs upon them as adults. I saw that this factor quietly sapped their joy, and caused them to question the meaning and purpose of their lives. It made some feel empty, and others feel alone. It caused problems in relationships, and made people angry…
  • The ‘Weakness Factor’: Men and Depression

    Kurt Smith, LMFT, LPCC, AFC
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:45 am
    I’ve found that it’s much easier for women to say, “I’m depressed,” than it is for men. This has more to do with what I call the “weakness factor,” in which men struggle to admit something’s wrong with them or acknowledge something they perceive as a sign of weakness. Men get depressed just as women do. The biggest difference between the sexes is that men typically won’t admit to themselves, or anyone else, that they’re feeling down. Asking for help? As Anthony Soprano would say, “forget about it.” Because most men…
  • What to Know about Children’s Nighttime Bedwetting

    Katie Gawerecki
    30 Jul 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Toilet training can be a stressful process. This is particularly the case for children who achieve daytime dryness but continue to wet themselves — and the bed — overnight. It may leave you wondering what’s normal and what you can do to help your child. Nighttime wetting is one of the most common urologic conditions in childhood. The vast majority of cases are not related to a physical cause. Most commonly, nighttime wetting happens in children who are very deep sleepers; their brains and bladders aren’t communicating as they should while they sleep. It is not your child’s…
  • Adults with ADHD: Tips for Juggling Life in Today’s Frenetic World

    Margarita Tartakovsky, M.S.
    30 Jul 2014 | 8:45 am
    We live in a wired, fast-paced world. We’re constantly plugged in — checking email and social media sites from all of our devices. We’re trying to meet ever-increasing expectations and demands, juggling careers and school, raising kids, managing our homes, entertaining, and much more, says Terry Matlen, MSW, ACSW, a psychotherapist and ADHD coach. “For the adult without ADD, it’s a tough situation to keep their heads above water. But for an adult with ADHD, it’s almost an impossible task.” “The brain can just ‘shut down’ due to feeling overwhelmed,” said Stephanie…
