A child (10 years old), suffering from blindness, (7) months ago, the ophthalmologist diagnosed him that the success of his operation was approximately (75%), but after (5) months had passed, that is, when the date of the operation came and the doctor diagnosed him again, he confirmed the success rate of the operation (3%) is due to acute retinal detachment.
What is the reason for that in your opinion?
Should the choice of answer be with an adequate explanation of the case?
· The child falls on his eyes.
· Parents' lack of interest in cleaning the child's eyes
· Serious psychological causes in the child.
We recently conducted a study on inattentional blindness among social and natural sciences students and found sustained sex differences in Inattentional blindness (IB). In the second study where we wanted to use Stereotype threat manipulation models in the experimental part of the study, we did not find any gender differences. Can this be because of differential professional socialization of medical students?
Do you have any suggestions on how to measure fatigue in ms via an online survey (self-reports)? Thank you in advance! Jennifer
Everything I have found thus far is based on speculation and not empirical evidence.
There's a lot going on in the so called 'autism world' which could benefit from research and analysis by sociologists and philosophers of science:
There's been a radical change in the public image of autism, say from 'Rain man' (1988) to 'Big bang theory' (now).
Since the mid-nineties until now there's been a remarkable emancipation from no voice to many of which quite a few argue autism is not a disease, but a variation within normalcy of people with remarkable qualities.
The leading (medical and psychological) scientific paradigm of autism as an incurable developmental disease seems to be challenged more everyday by rival views claiming different (partly) curable etiologies.
Have these (and other) interrelated developments been the subject of study from the above mentioned disciplines? If so, why do they practically seem invisible?
I found a lot about anxiety and depressive symptoms but not so much regarding this kind of externalizing behaviors.
Looking for a model/theory/framework/ classic paper or systematic review that provides an overview on what factors influence a patient's decisions, in general and specific to treatment decisions?
I'm looking for any available South African literature on the role/efficacy of psychologists in a general hospital/medical context, applying psychological understanding/modals in the context of terminally/chronically ill individuals in general hospitals. Please let me know of any useful journals or websites.
Ramsay described a non-parametric form of IRT based on kernel density smoothing. However, Ramsay's work seems never to have gained much attention (not even objections from proponents of competing models), but I was trying to find at least some example of how it has been applied beyond the original descriptions by Ramsay.
Is anyone aware of any that have been published in peer-reviewed journals?
Bonus points if you know of a study in psychology or medicine using kernel density smoothing IRT.
