Describing emotions : major depressive disorder and conceptual metaphor theory by Brittany Lavanty( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Unlike medical conditions for which biologically--based diagnostic tools and treatments exist, the diagnosis and treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) usually requires face--to--face communication. Therefore, the diagnosis and treatment of MDD is based in language. However, clinicians receive little to no training in analyzing language. This study demonstrates how analyzing language has the potential to enhance therapeutic treatments for MDD. It presents a conceptual metaphor (CM) analysis of the metaphors that people with and without MDD use to describe emotions. Analyzing the metaphors that people use to describe emotions will help us learn more about how people conceptualize emotions, and, more broadly, how they think about themselves and the world around them
The Effect of Gestural Priming on Semantic Feature Frequency by Marisha S Kazi( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Observing actions and the subsequent reproduction of those actions has been extensively studied in the realm of behavior mimicry and priming. Are people more likely to produce a specific semantic feature after seeing it in an experimenter's gesture? We addressed this question by asking participants to watch a cartoon stimulus, and then priming them with certain gestures. Then, we asked participants to retell the cartoon in as much detail as possible and their gesture was analyzed. A significant number of participants who observed experimenter's gesture reproduced the same gesture during their free recall, indicating a gestural priming effect taking place. Other results related to torso movement and viewpoint in related to the presence of a gestural prime are expounded on in this paper
The missing piece : enactment in revealing and redirecting student prior knowledge can enactment expose affect, illuminate mental models, and improve assessment and learning? by Alison McKim( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Research in cognitive science demonstrates that enactment is beneficial for encoding new information and retrieving prior knowledge. This study highlights the reciprocal relationship between enactment and prior knowledge as it benefits both teachers and learners. This thesis argues that enactment can be used to gain insight into students' prior knowledge in a way that verbal assessment may not. This thesis also argues that an enacted lesson informed by student prior knowledge will lead to greater learning than an enacted lesson not informed by prior knowledge. Sample lessons of both conditions are included. Results of this study have implications in the fields of education and educational research. This introductory study provides a basis for future studies involving but not limited to the topics of enactment and affect, enactment in learning and enactment in assessing prior knowledge
Keep calm and study memes by Ashley R Dainas( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis expands and applies Shifman's (2013) communication oriented typology for memes and uses conceptual blending theory to show that the "Keep Calm and Carry On" internet meme is altered in predictable patterns. Based on this analysis, we conducted a survey study seeking to answer: 1. How do the dimensions of the taxonomy work together in order to create humor and understanding? 2. What is the minimal number of changes that can be made to a parody while still allowing it to make sense? 3. Does how well a person "gets" an internet meme predict humor ratings? The results indicate that people's ratings of funniness are highly dependent on whether or not the person feels they have understood or "gotten" the meme. Beyond this, the results varied widely between the memes studied and tended to fall into six distinct categories based on whether or not participants "got" the meme
