The neural correlates of trustworthiness evaluation of faces and brands: Implications for behavioral and consumer neuroscience.

When we buy a product of a brand, we trust the brand to provide good quality and reliability. Therefore, trust plays a major role in consumer behavior. It is unclear, however, how trust in brands is processed in the brain and whether it is processed differently from interpersonal trust. In this study, we used fMRI to investigate the neural correlates of interpersonal and brand trust by comparing the brain activation patterns during explicit trustworthiness judgments of faces and brands. Our results showed t...

In sanitary pads, 5,900- and 130-fold differences of VOC and phthalate concentrations were seen among the brands. In the diapers, 3- and 63-fold differences of VOC and phthalate concentrations were detec...

In vitro efficiency of 16 different Ca(OH) based CO absorbent brands.

Data directly comparing CO absorbents tested in identical and clinically relevant conditions are scarce or non-existent. We therefore tested and compared the efficiency of 16 different brands of Ca(OH) based CO absorbents used as loose fill or a cartridge in a refillable canister under identical low flow conditions. CO absorbents efficiency was tested by flowing 160 mL/min CO into the tip of a 2 L balloon that was ventilated with an ADU anesthesia machine (GE, Madison, WI, USA) with a tidal volume of 500...

The Wild West of E-Cigarettes.

The popularity of e-cigarettes is growing exponentially. Yet, the health risks associated with their use remain unclear, mainly due to the fact that they are not "one product", but a combination of ever-evolving designs, flavors, brands, and modes of use. Research needs to better understand how these variables affect toxicity.

Analysis of elemental and isotopic variation in glass frictionators from 0.22 rimfire primers.

The majority of 0.22 calibre rimfire ammunition available in Australia, and overseas, tends to use glass powder rather than antimony sulfide frictionator in the primer. This glass can be the nucleus of a GSR particle, with other primer components condensing around and onto the glass structure. As the composition of glass frictionator remains largely unaltered during ammunition discharge [1] there is the possibility that frictionator composition could be used in GSR examinations to either correlate or discri...

Automatic graph-based method for localization of cochlear implant electrode arrays in clinical CT with sub-voxel accuracy.

Cochlear implants (CIs) are neural prosthetics that provide a sense of sound to people who experience severe to profound hearing loss. Recent studies have demonstrated a correlation between hearing outcomes and intra-cochlear locations of CI electrodes. Our group has been conducting investigations on this correlation and has been developing an image-guided cochlear implant programming (IGCIP) system to program CI devices to improve hearing outcomes. One crucial step that has not been automated in IGCIP is t...

Guideline Implementation: Manual Chemical High-Level Disinfection: 1.5

The Spaulding system recommends sterilization or, at minimum, high-level disinfection for semicritical medical items (ie, items that come into contact with mucous membranes or nonintact skin). High-level disinfection deactivates all types of microorganisms except bacterial spores and prions. If high-level disinfection is not performed correctly, however, contaminated medical or surgical devices could transmit pathogens to patients. Reusable semicritical items may be processed using manual methods when manua...

Pure-three-level Yb:GdCOB CW laser at 976  nm.

We present what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first pure-three-level Yb:CaGdO(BO) (Yb:GdCOB) laser emitting at 976 nm based on the F2-F2 transition, generally used for a quasi-three-level emission at 1032 nm. A maximum power of 782 mW at 976 nm has been achieved in continuous-wave (CW) operation pumped by a quasi-three-level Nd:SrLaAlO laser emitting at 902 nm. Moreover, a self-frequency-doubling CW blue laser has also been demonstrated with a maximum power of 133 mW at 488 nm.

The immunogenicity of ReFacto AF (moroctocog alfa AF-CC) in previously untreated patients with haemophilia A in the United Kingdom.

Factor VIII inhibitor development is currently the most serious complication of the treatment of haemophilia A. Differences in manufacturing and the molecular structure of brands of recombinant factor VIII have led to speculation that concentrates may differ in immunogenicity. This has led to a regulatory focus on the immunogenicity of factor VIII concentrates both before and after licensure.
