Grooming is without doubt one of the so much evolutionary historical and hugely represented behaviours in lots of animal species. It represents an important percentage of an animal's overall task and among 30-50% in their waking hours. fresh learn has confirmed that grooming is regulated via particular mind circuits and is delicate to emphasize, in addition to to pharmacologic compounds and genetic manipulation, making it perfect for modelling affective issues that come up as a functionality of tense environments, similar to pressure and post-traumatic tension ailment. Over a sequence of 12 chapters that introduce and explicate the sector of grooming learn and its importance for the human and animal mind, this e-book covers the breadth of grooming animal types whereas concurrently supplying adequate intensity in introducing the ideas and translational techniques to grooming study. Written basically for graduates and researchers in the neuroscientific neighborhood.

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

1996). Self-grooming may also occur when groomers are anxious and attempting to relieve anxiety and thus be a form of de-arousal (Kalueff et al. 2007; Kalueff and Tuohimaa 2005; McFarlane et al. 2008; Roth and Katz 1979). In other cases, the rate of self-grooming may decrease when groomers are trying to avoid the attention of conspecifics or indicate the motivational ambivalence of groomers toward opposite-sex conspecifics (Spruijt et al. 1992). Self-grooming in response to odors of conspecifics may also play a role in olfactory communication between groomers and their audience.
