Testing partial memory with the British video lineup

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Testing partial memory with the British video lineup Avraham Levi On pension from the police of Israel Levi has hypothesized that witnesses with poor memory discount some lineup members as not fitting their partial memory of the target, thereby picking him often. In a comparison between British 10-person video lineups and 48-person lineups, they did not differ in identifications. Perhaps sequential video lineups prevented witnesses from hitting upon the discounting strategy. Fifty were asked to count the number of lineup members that they could discount, and then were given the lineup. Others were given the lineup first. We expected that the former group would have more identifications No difference was found. Reasons for this were discussed. Keywords: Testing partial memory with the British video lineup ...

Juggling the Many Voices Inside: What It Means to Be an Emerging Adult

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Juggling the Many Voices Inside: What It Means to Be an Emerging Adult Richard Morehouse1, Merel Visse2, Brian Singer-Towns3, John Vitek4 1Professor Emeritus Viterbo University/Praxis 1706 North Salem Road, La Crosse, WI 54603; 2Associate Professor of Care Ethics University of Humanistic Studies, Department of Care Eth-ics, Kromme Nieuwegracht 29, 3512 HD Utrecht, the Netherlands; 3Special Projects Director, Saint Mary’s Press 702 Terrace Heights, Winona, MN  55987; 4President, Saint Mary’s Press 702 Terrace Heights, Winona, MN  55987 Background: Our late modern society has a focus on self-realization, managerialism and instrumental reasoning. A logic of choice dominates the lives of emerging adults. They are focused on “self-managing” their lives. Although many emerging adults can “flourish”, others are “floundering,” struggling with anxiety or lower self-perceptions. Theories on self-realization which focus on a capability or self-determination approach seem inadequate for understanding this reality. Aim: This article critically examines what it means to be an emerging adult in late modern society. It aims to counterbalance the dominant theories of self-realization by exploring a dialogical view on the “self”. It pays attention to the voices of the “selves” of emerging adults, including the internalized voice of society itself. Method: A narrative approach was followed. First, an interpretive narrative study was carried out with female respondents. The study employed in-depth focus group and individual interviews and the transcripts of the interviews were then analyzed thematically. We further analyzed the data according to the Listening Guide Approach. Findings: Self-realization is a dynamic relational and moral process. The findings illustrate the multiple voices and I-positions of emerging adults. In addition, the findings illustrate that in addition to agency, “passive receptivity” also plays an important role in the process of becoming an emerging adult. Keywords: emerging adults, narrative, dialogical self, ...

Mind in the Brain-Creation of the Greatest Virtual World

Review Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Mind in the Brain - Creation of the Greatest Virtual World Mukundan CR1*, Kamarajan C2 and Ajayan P3 1Axxonet Brain Research Laboratory, Axxonet System Technologies, Bangalore, India. 2Henri Begleiter Neurodynamics Laboratory, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY 11203, USA. 3Kingsboro Psychiatric Center, 681 Clarkson Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11203, USA. Human mind is a functional capability of the brain, by which information about sensory-motor contacts made through the nervous system are perceived and interpreted by the mind. While the detection and interpretations are subjective and experiential, they are based purely on a cascade of neurocognitive processes that unfold in the brain in response to external events or sequential changes detected over time and space. Experiential or subjective interpretations are generally based on the selected choices, and often depends on the cognitive judgments made by the individual. The cognitive judgments mold the drive present in the individual and it is experienced as positive or negative emotions by the individual. Drive is the fuel or energy present in the system for all responses and actions related to "seeking", and they are automatically initiated when the drive reaches a Critical Level of Potentiation (Mukundan et al. 1). It is possible for an individual to become aware of the presence of the drive as well as the process of initiation of actions in the attempt to satisfying the drive. Scientific observations of the changes that occur in the physical and social environment, which are normally detected by the sensory-motor systems are repeatable and explain the time-space sequential relationships that exist in the physical universe. The major role of the mind is the experiential detection and interpretations of the sensory-motor events, which are experienced and expressed by the mental processes related to detection and expression. Subjective ...

Psychic itinerary of the cesarean section in six Cameroonian primiparous

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Psychic itinerary of the cesarean section in six Cameroonian primiparous Mireille Ndje Ndje Ph/D in Clinical and Pathological Psychology, Laboratory of Development and bad Development, Faculty of Arts, Letters and Human Sciences, University of Yaounde I, Cameroon Statement of the Problem: The birth of a child does not create a split with the pregnancy and desires of the conception of the parents but rather confirms the continuity of the fantasies, the representations which animate these and more still the mother since the desire of the child. These fantasies and daydreams inherent in pregnancy and described by Bydlowsky are relegated to the background, and sometimes even ignored by families, but especially by obstetric care professionals during birth. Methodology: This article is an intrusion using semi-directive interviews in the psychic dynamics of six Cameroonian primiparous women who gave birth by cesarean section in a specialized hospital, from the preoperative to the postoperative through the operative. Findings: It emerges from this study that when the normal process of birth is changed, the mother can undergo this event considered natural in her cultural universe. Cesarean section is certainly a birth, but it is anti-physiological, because of the lack of passage that leads to a feeling of foreignness in women. In the Caesarean section, there seems to be a lack of narcissistic investment in the reproductive apparatus. Caesarized parturients feel guilty for not having given life according to the accepted model, both on the religious, social, cultural and psychic level. They feel guilty for not being able to repeat the act that women have been doing in their environment since the beginning of time. For their own family they bring denigration, for the in-laws they are incapable, for the other parturients they are inferior, and ...
