Anatomical context of Psychology

  • This study had 3 aims: to determine whether rheumatoid arthritics had certain personality traits; to examine the relationship between psychological factors and the presence of rheumatoid factor in blood serum; and to explore the prognostic significance of psychological factors in the management of rheumatoid arthritis [26].
  • These observations suggest that nociceptive sensitivity to noxious stimuli is affected by repeated stress and that modulation of neurotransmission by adenine nucleotides in spinal cord may be altered by the interaction of sexual hormones and psychological factors, such as exposure to stress [27].
  • It is concluded that psychological factors can affect performance dependant on whether the situation is perceived as one of 'reward' or 'punishment'. A factor in the mediation of the adverse response is an inappropriate response of the autonomic nervous system [28].
  • Cynomolgus macaque atherosclerosis induced by feeding cholesterol is a good model of human atherosclerosis because of similar gender-related differences in susceptibility to coronary artery atherosclerosis, a relatively high incidence of myocardial infarction, and characterized psychosocial factors that influence the development of atherosclerosis [29].
  • These findings suggested that it was useful to differentiate the multiple symptoms, especially the psychological factors, by using the TMJ Scale for orthodontic patients with TMD [30].

Gene context of Psychology

  • The goals of the present study were to describe rates of completing a psychosocial telephone counseling (PTC) intervention that was offered to female BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and to identify sociodemographic and psychological factors associated with decisions to complete the intervention [31].
  • CONCLUSION: These findings provide new evidence that psychosocial factors play a significant role in autoimmune processes that underlie RA [32].
  • In contrast, the correlations between psychological factors and IL-1ra levels were weak and non-significant, as were the correlations between inflammatory markers and depression [33].
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings are consistent with research on developmental ADHD that implicate psychosocial factors and prefrontal structural and functional differences between those with and without the disorder [34].
  • CONCLUSION: Psychological factors play an important role in patients with BPPV [35].
