Savant Memory in a Man with Colour Form-Number Synaesthesia and Asperger Syndrome

Extreme conditions like savantism, autism or synaesthesia, which have a neurological basis, challenge the idea that other minds are similar to our own. In this paper we report a single case study of a man in whom all three of these conditions co-occur....

RELIGION AND THE RISE OF LIBERAL-DEMOCRATIC IDEOLOGY IN 17TH-CENTURY ENGLAND*

In classical and contemporary sociology, key elements of liberal-democratic ideology are seen as secular extensions of Protestant ideas. This case study provides a different analysis that emphasizes the problem of religious conflict and radicalism in...

DIFFERENTIAL FORMS IN MANIFOLDS WITH BOUNDARY

The theory of harmonic forms in Riemannian manifolds may be regarded as a generalization of potential theory. It is therefore natural that the boundary value problems of this theory which generalize the classical Dirichlet and Neumann problems should...

Rectilinear steady flow of simple fluids

Steady rectilinear motion of incompressible non-Newtonian fluids is, in general, characterized by the two planar fields of pressure and speed, and these are in turn restricted by the three differential equations of motion. Two material functions which...

Experimental myocardial infarction. I. Production of left ventricular failure by gradual coronary occlusion in intact conscious dogs

A new method is described for producing acute myocardial infarction in dogs, by gradually inflating a balloon cuff which has been implanted around a coronary artery. The procedure results in myocardial damage severe enough to cause left ventricular failure,...

Affect and accessibility

Depressed patients experience thoughts with predominantly negative content. This could be because depressed mood increases the accessibility, or availability, of negative memories relative to that of positive memories. Investigations of the effects of...

Equality and Respect

/. 1. let me begin with a preliminary caution, and with a statement of intent. I propose to deal here with issues that pertain to the alleged moral value of equality. So far as I am aware, nothing that I shall say concerning these issues implies anything...

FLORAL EVOLUTION IN VIOLA

Pollination in Viola results both from sternotribic and nototribic pollinator responses, the frequencies of which vary according to the plant species. Syndromes of floral characters determine these frequencies, and each is adaptive to a group of pollinators,...

Balance of Trade Announcements and Movements in Exchange Rates

THE PRIMARY QUALITY VIEW OF COLOR

I here defend the 'Australian' view that colors are physical properties of objects. This view is sometimes known as the primary quality view of color, although the idea is not that colors are identical with complexes of primary qualities in a sense tied...

Functional Categories and Specific Language Impairment: A Case Study

Children with specific language impairment (SLI) who are acquiring English often show a more serious deficit in grammatical morphology than in other areas of language. Because most grammatical morphemes appear to be associated with functional categories...

The Smale Conjecture [9] is the assertion that the inclusion of the orthogonal group 0(4) into Diff(S3), the diffeomorphism group of the 3-sphere with the Cw topology, is a homotopy equivalence. There are many equivalent forms of this...

Pattern, Process, and the Scale Problem in Geographical Research

A TRADITIONAL aim of geographical research is to describe the spatial pattern of objects or events, and to explain that pattern by way of the causal mechanisms which have generated it. This aim implies some way of deducing spatial patterns from a knowledge...

The teenage sexual revolution and the myth of an abstinent past.

Reasons for the rise in teenage illegitimacy are discussed. In the past relatively poor health conditions may have moderated the consequences of nonmarital teen-age sex. Improved health conditions appear to have increased the chances that an out-of-wedlock...

MODELS FOR THE ESTIMATION OF COMPETING RISKS FROM GROUPED DATA
