Behavioral patterns, including sexual behavioral patterns, are usually understood as biological adaptations increasing the fitness of their carriers. Many parasites, so-called manipulators, are known to induce changes in the behavior of their hosts to increase their own fitness. Such changes are also induced by a parasite of cats, Toxoplasma gondii...

The effects of birth order on various dimensions of human personality and behaviour have been extensively studied. These effects might, however, be modulated by siblings’ gender and their age-gap. It was previously suggested that the greatest birth-order-related difference occurs among offspring with closer birth intervals and siblings with age-gap...

Introduction. Birth order was shown to affect various psychological characteristics, ranging from personality to sexual behaviour. Several previous studies also suggested firstborn advantage in educational achievements. However, others did not find such effect. This might be due to neglecting possibly modulating factors such as gender and age-gap a...

Od kurikulární reformy se očekávalo mj. upuštění od striktních osnov a zaměření na kompetence a větší celky. Panuje pocit, že mnoho očekávání nebylo naplněno, a aktuálně probíhají další revize bez většího zapojení odborné veřejnosti. Cíl: Analyzovat, jak se rámcové vzdělávací programy (RVP) pro základní vzdělávání (zejména nově akcentované okruhy)...

Comparative studies on science curricula provide insights into educational standards worldwide. Accordingly, in this study, we analysed the intended curricula of mathematics and science subjects of the Czech Republic, Estonia, Poland and Slovenia by comparing their lower secondary (ISCED 2) National Curriculum Documents on mathematics, physics, che...

Introduction: A limited number of scientific studies explore the frequency with which various sexual positions are used in human populations and the potential of particular sexual position to facilitate female coital orgasm. Aim: The aim of this study was to provide data about the prevalence and frequency of various sexual positions, their rated...

Background Since its discovery in the 1930s, the effects of Rh phenotype on human health and wellbeing, with the exception of the effects of Rh-negativity of a mother on the risk of hemolytic anemia of Rh-positive children, has only rarely been studied. In the last few years, however, several studies have shown that Rh-negative subjects have worse...

Dominance hierarchy is often established via repeated agonistic encounters where consistent winners are considered dominant. Human body odour contains cues to psychological dominance and competition, but it is not known whether competition outcome (a marker of a change in dominance hierarchy) affects the hedonic quality of human axillary odour. The...

Intended course: Primary prevention on individual and group level. As any environment, a school environment is strongly influenced by elementary evolutionary processes such as cooperation, competition, or the fear of exclusion from a group or its resources. At worst, moments of increased violence (e.g., Zimbardo’s experiments) can occur. Therefore,...

There are many reasons why people are not able to provide adequate first aid. One of the main reasons is the lack of training, especially practical training. According to the Framework Educational Programs, first aid education should be included in both primary and secondary education, but it is not given sufficient attention. First aid education a...

Facial perception plays a key role in various social interactions, including formidability assessments. People make relatively accurate inferences about men's physical strength, aggressiveness, and success in physical confrontations based on facial cues. The physical factors related to the perception of fighting ability and their relative contribut...

The kin selection theory suggests that individuals more likely invest in individuals to whom they are more genetically related. Many studies showed that matrilineal family members may invest more than patrilineal, which is could be explained by connection to the paternity uncertainty. The grandparents are more certain of the biological relation wit...

We collected birth order data from university students using a questionnaire and computed the proportions of firstborns in two-child families (N=1110) considering age-gaps a...

Některé studie naznačují, že výsledné efekty pořadí narození na osobnost mohou být významně modulovány pohlavím respondenta i sourozence a jejich věkovým odstupem. Nejvýraznější efekty pořadí narození by se měly projevit mezi sourozenci s malými věkovými odstupy (do 5 let) a následně by projev měl klesat. Hlavním cílem naší studie bylo ověřit uvede...

There is no reason to believe that he would be any different in the helping professions (firemen, policemen, doctors, paramedics, nurses). Following that, more than 50% of marriages end in divorce, it is particularly important to...

Using puzzles as a mind-map systemic representation to enhance psycho-social safety and student's well-being at elementary and middle school in the Czech Republic.
Project
Projekt se zabývá výzkumem zátěžových faktorů u pracovníků tísňových linek 150/112, 155 a 158, analýzou jejich pracovní činnosti, zjištění odlišností a podobných rysů. Cílem tohoto projektu je komparace zátěže pracovníků na jednotlivých tísňových linkách a určení případných rizikových oblastí prostřednictvím dotazníkového šetření.
