BIOMECANICA ARTICULAŢIILOR MÂINII

Complexul osteo-articular carpian este astfel alcătuit încât să permită efectuarea mişcărilor de flexiune-extensiune, adducţie-abducţie şi circumducţie. Cum aceste articulaţii sunt, în general, articulaţii plane, fiecare în parte permite mişcări de alunecare de mică amplitudine. Mişcările articulaţiilor mâinii se produc simultan; atât în articulaţia radiocarpiană cât şi în cea mediocarpiană. Toate aceste mişcări se realizează printr-o deplasare „în etaj” a segmentelor regiunii; al doilea rând carpian (distal) se deplasează pe primul rând (proximal) iar acesta alunecă pe antebraţ. Deoarece primul rând…

What Does Wellness Look Like?

As you’ve discovered, there are many definitions of health, wellness, and well-being. But without a doubt, they all agree that it’s about living a life that you feel is satisfying, meaningful, and rewarding. Several years ago, two researchers, Gianni Pes and Michel Poulain, started examining communities around the world in which people lived measurably longer lives…so long in fact, that many include the largest group of men over the age of 100! Pes and Poulain drew blue concentric blue circles…

Don’t Be Your Own Worst Enemy (Part Two) ~Self Assignments~

  A number of physical exercises can help shift our unsettled emotional states to calmer, more relaxed feelings—as well as to actually alter to some degree the body’s physiological responses. For maximum effect, they should become part of your daily routine. Don’t wait until a crisis emerges and then plunge into them, looking for a quick fix, although two of them can also be resorted to when emotions are running hot. They take only five or 10 minutes each—a small…

A Psychological Argument for Depth

Our second contention for why profundity produces importance originates from crafted by one of the world’s best-known (and most incorrectly spelled) therapists, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. In the mid 1980s, Csikszentmihalyi, working with Reed Larson, a youthful associate at the University of Chicago, designed another method for understanding the mental effect of ordinary practices. At the time, it was hard to precisely gauge the mental effect of various exercises. On the off chance that you brought somebody into a research center and…

Deep Work Is Valuable

As Election Day lingered in 2012, activity at the New York Times site spiked, as is ordinary amid snapshots of national significance. Be that as it may, this time, something was unique. An uncontrollably lopsided part of this movement—more than 70 percent by a few reports—was going to a solitary area in the sprawling space. It wasn’t a front-page breaking news story, and it wasn’t analysis from one of the paper’s Pulitzer Prize– winning reporters; it was rather a blog…

Common research methods

Of course, there are many different ways of testing the research hypotheses. Although this is an oversimplification, the following three general research methods may be distinguished:  experiments; surveys/non-experiments; and observation. This is not a complete list by any means. However, it does include most of the research methods likely to be used by beginning researchers. EXPERIMENTS It is difficult to imagine psychology without experiments. The experimental method is so common in psychological research that it is almost a defining characteristic…

Short-Term Therapy for Children

Conceptual frameworks exist for adult forms of brief psychodynamic intervention , but not for child forms of brief intervention. However, as Messer and Warren (1995) pointed out, short-term therapy (6–12 sessions) is a frequent form of psychodynamic intervention. The practical realities of HMOs and of clinical practice in general have led to briefer forms of treatment. Often, the time-limited nature of the therapy is by default, not by plan (Messer & Warren, 1995). The average number of sessions for children…

Asking research questions

We all have our own ideas of what determines people’s thoughts and actions. Some of these ideas are seen as common sense. For example, it may seem obvious that similar people are likely to be attracted to each other. After all, ‘birds of a feather flock together’. Confusingly, we believe that people who are very different from each other are likely to get involved in relationships—‘opposites attract’. Testing the truth (validity) of such ‘theories’ is an important part of the…

Psychology of Science and the Scientific Thinking

Science and scientific thinking, as prototypes of human thought and understanding, have long fascinated scholars and thinkers in philosophy, history, and more recently, sociology. Indeed, philosophy of science, history of science, and sociology of science are well-developed disciplines. By contrast, psychology of science is an infant that has much to learn from the other, more mature metasciences. If psychology of science is to learn from these other more codified studies of science and develop its own identity, then it must…

Does socially sharing an emotion contribute to emotional recovery?

Why are people so willing to engage in a social process in which they reexperience negative affects? One would assume that some powerful incentive drives them to do so and that they find some important benefit in it. What could this profit be? Common sense offers a ready-made answer to this question. Indeed, we commonly assume that verbalizing an emotional memory can transform it and that after verbalization, this memory would lose a significant part of its emotional load. A…

Talking about emotional experiences

Talking about an emotional experience is a well-known and common consequence of exposure to very intense negative emotional conditions. As early as 1910, William James, after witnessing the San Francisco earthquake, wrote to Pierre Janet about the victims’ apparent need to talk about their experiences. At night, he noted, it was impossible to sleep in the tents which served as temporary housing for the earthquake victims, due to the continuous verbal exchanges (Janet, 1926/1975, p. 326). This early anecdotal observation…

Deceit as a normal developmental skill

Lying is often condemned as a “naughty” behavior in children and regarded as reflecting moral deficits in adults. “In truth”, lying is a developmental skill, which is necessary for the preservation of the sense of self, the maintenance of individual autonomy, and the capacity to relate well with other persons. People whom we call “liars” or “pathological liars” are generally unsuccessful liars, while those who are more successful and skillful are not identified as such. To provide an analogy, the…

Lying and self-deception in health and disease

[frontpage_news widget=”289″ name=”Most popular”] Deceit and the need to detect deception are prevalent in the animal kingdom, and reaches their highest evolutionary development in Homo sapiens. Deceit is an intricate part of human communication involving, via a dynamic process, selfdeception and the deception of others. When used in “normal” ways, we are often unaware of our deceptive communications to others. Deceit serves to promote social support and helps to sustain mental and physical health. However, blatant (pathological) forms of deceit…

Energy indicates the beginning change of more capricious instinct structures (furthermore called formal clever operations) including applied considering (contemplating possible results), the ability to reason from known guidelines (shape guarantee new musings or request), the ability to consider numerous points of view according to contrasting criteria (take a gander at or talk about considerations or emotions), and the ability to consider the route toward considering.
