Objective: Cytokines induce tissues damage or inflammation due to infection, contributing to host defense through stimulation of hematopoiesis and acute phase immune reactions. The exaggerated synthesis of cytokines or cytokine storm is directly implicated in the critical cases of patients who have been infected with COVID-19. The cytokine storm ma...

Worrying is a cognitive process that focuses on potential future negative events, where the outcome is often uncertain. Worries can arise in chains with one worry leading to another, often without solution. This may give rise to an uncontrollable worrying that may be associated with psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression. The generati...

Adolescence is usually described as a period of search for sensations, great impulsivity, and risky behavior. How can this circumstance affect the intentional inference of adolescents who have to reconsider their intentions after performing a task? In this article we show that adolescents who had seen a very cautious agent acting in a Classic Wumpu...

We have developed a computer simulation comparing the behavior of two artificial agents (A0 and A1), both of which imitate the use of implementation intentions for achieving a goal R. However, A0 is more balanced for obtaining the goal intention "I intend to achieve R!" while A1 is more balanced for obtaining the implementation intention "I intend...

Emotional Cascade Model proposes that the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder can be understood through emotional cascades. Emotional cascades are vicious cycles of intense rumination and negative affect that may induce aversive emotional states that generate abnormal behaviors to reduce the ef...

PSICO-A is a new educational system, based on the web, for learning psychology. Its computational architecture consists of a front-end and a back-end. The first one contains a design mode, a reflective mode, a game mode and a simulation mode. These modes are connected to the back-end, which is composed of a rule engine, an evaluation module, a comm...

It is designed a game based on the spatial prisoner introducing the three laws of imitation defined by Tarde. The French author described (1) the law of close contact, (2) the law of imitation of superiors by inferiors and (3) the law of insertion. The first law is defined like a Conformist rule; the second law is defined like a Maximization rule a...

In this article I show how to obtain a powerful and truthful explanation of the failure of sorites arguments combining an adaptation of the Wide Set Theory formulated by Formato and Gerla and the concept of deep many valuedness established by Marraud. It is shown that if the premises of a sorites argument are conceived as a succession of indexed co...
