Learned helplessness : a theory for the age of personal control by Christopher Peterson( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When experience with uncontrollable events gives rise to the expectation that events in the future will also elude control, disruptions in motivation, emotion, and learning may ensue. "Learned helplessness" refers to the problems that arise in the wake of uncontrollability. First described in the 1960's among laboratory animals, learned helplessness has since been applied to a variety of human problems entailing inappropriate passivity and demoralization. While learned helplessness is best known as an explanation of depression, studies with both people and animals have mapped out the cognitive and biological aspects. The present volume summarizes and integrates the theory, research, and application of learned helplessness. Each line of work is evaluated critically in terms of what is and is not known, and future directions are sketched
Managing corporate liquidity : an introduction to working capital management by James H Vander Weide( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cytokines and pain by L. R Watkins( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to examine immune-to-brain communication from the viewpoint of its effect on pain processing, and to clarify the major role that substances released by immune cells play in pain modulation. In these chapters, contributed by major laboratories whose focus is understanding how cytokines modulate pain, the perspectives examined range from evolutionary approaches across diverse species, to the basics of the immune response, to the effect of cytokines on peripheral and central nervous system sites, to therapeutic potential in humans. -- book cover

Multi-item network flow model with capacity constraints by Stanford University( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A multi-item network flow model with capacity constraints is reformulated into the classical multicommodity flow problem. An L-U decomposition of block matrices is used to modify the revised simplex method to improve computational efficiency. Advantage is taken of the triangular basis of the one commodity sub problems and the expected low number of tight capacity constraints. Included is an example and an illustration of the principle of the L-U decomposition
Stress sounds the alarmin: High Mobility Group Box 1 as a stress-induced neuroinflammatory priming signal by Michael David Weber( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lastly, the intracellular mechanism by which HMGB-1 drives neuroinflammatory priming was explored. Stress-induced HMGB-1 likely primes neuroinflammatory responses via the NLRP3 inflammasome. Both inescapable tailshock and central administration of dsHMGB-1 increased hippocampal NLRP3 protein for at least 24 h. Furthermore, direct treatment of dsHMGB-1 on isolated microglia increased NLRP3 transcription. This effect was not accompanied by the synthesis of pro-inflammatory cytokines suggesting that the NLRP3 inflammasome is primed but not active
Mind What You Eat: Implications and Mechanisms of High-Fat Diet-Induced Neuroinflammatory Priming by Julia Lillian Sobesky( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evidence presented herein demonstrates: prolonged HFD mediates hippocampal memory by altering neuroinflammatory responding, evidence of a primed neuroinflammatory environment is observed following 3 days HFD, and HFD mediates primed and potentiated neuroinflammation through induction of hippocampal CORT and HMGB1
Coping and Immune Function( )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project has focused on the development of a reliable animal model of stress-induced changes in immune function and the role of stressor controllability in this process. Previous work on this project concentrated on the effects of inescapable shock on changes in in vitro measures of immune function such as mitogen stimulated lymphocyte proliferation and natural killer cell cytotoxicity. This year we shifted to a study of in vivo immune functioning with the hope that in vivo measures might reveal more reliable changes. We developed an ELISA assay that detected specific IgG antibody to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH), an immunogenic but harmless protein. We developed a paradigm in which animals were immunized with KLH, then stressed in some fashion, and then antibody to KLH measured over an 8 week period. A variety of different stressors all proved to substantially reduce antibody production. One session of inescapable shock, three sessions of inescapable shock, inescapable shock delivered during the dark phase of the animals' day/night cycle, inescapable shock delivered during the light part of the cycle, and defeat in territorial aggression all suppressed antibody production. Thus alteration in vivo antibody production seems to be a robust and repeatable change in immune function produced by stressors, and we are now in a position to study the psychological and physiological mechanisms responsible for such changes
Activation of the infralimbic cortex potentiates the inhibitory control of conditioned fear by Brittany Marie Thompson( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The formation of fear memories is important for learning what cues predict danger. However, the inability to inhibit fear is detrimental to physical and mental health and contributes to the development of anxiety-related disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Thus an understanding of the neural mechanisms and pathways that inhibit fear is invaluable and potentiating structures that regulate fear could potentially treat and prevent the development of anxiety-related disorders. The infralimbic cortex (IL) of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex is a critical structure in fear inhibition and extinction learning. The IL suppresses the central amygdala and behavioral fear expression via activation of GABAergic intercalated cells of the amygdala. Mechanisms that enhance activity in the IL and IL-related pathways may blunt the later expression of fear. The studies presented in this dissertation stemmed from the idea that activation of the IL during an aversive experience could potentiate the ability of the IL to regulate conditioned fear expression in response to future conditioned fear stimuli. Our general findings are that IL activation (with the GABAA antagonist picrotoxin, IL-Ptx) during an aversive experience (mild tail shock or fear testing) both primes extinction learning and blunts the expression of future conditioned fear. Our data indicates that the activation of the IL induces long-lasting plastic changes in the IL that increase the recruitment of IL activity in response to fearful stimuli and result in the inhibition of conditioned fear responses. The effects of IL activation are highly dependent on NMDAR mechanisms at the time of activation and require IL activity during extinction learning. Furthermore, experiments presented in Chapters II, III, and IV demonstrate that the priming effect on future extinction learning is initially non-associative such that IL-Ptx administered in one fear context (or during conditioning) has transferrable effects on extinction in an entirely different context. The first two-thirds of this dissertation focus on the effects of IL activation on extinction whereas the last third focuses on the effects of IL activation on new fear learning. Chapter 4 investigates how IL activation decreases the future expression of conditioned fear that has not yet been learned. We demonstrate that IL activation is necessary during fear testing but not during fear conditioning. Thus, the reduction in fear is not caused by impairments in the formation of the fear memory, but, rather, it is due to increased IL inhibitory control of the CeA and fear expression during testing. Furthermore, we compared the pattern of plasticity-related proteins expressed following fear testing between animals that had received previous IL-Ptx or Sal. We found increased plasticity related proteins in regions that are involved in fear inhibition in animals that had received IL-Ptx with elevated phospho-ERK expression in the IL and elevated phospho-CREB expression in the ventromedial intercalated cells (ITC) and diminished phospho-CREB in the central amygdala (CeA) The elevated pattern of plasticity-related proteins in the IL and vmITC cells suggests that IL activation potentiates plasticity in the IL and ITC cells, which in turn results in diminished CeA activity. The research presented here extends the understanding of the role of the IL in fear inhibition and has exciting potential implications for prevention and treatment of anxiety disorders
A Psychological Dimension of Stress Selectively Alters Serotonin-1A Receptor Function in the Dorsal Raphe Nucleus by Robert Raymond Rozeske( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The studies herein elucidate a mechanism that could explain the behavioral differences following uncontrollable and controllable stress. We found that uncontrollable stress functionally impairs serotonin-1A receptors in the dorsal raphe nucleus, while controllable stress does not. Furthermore, this protective effect of control was mediated by the medial prefrontal cortex. Finally, an initial experience with controllable stress prevented subsequent uncontrollable stress-induced impairments of serotonin-1A receptor function. These results indicate that activation of the medial prefrontal cortex produces both short- and long-term resistance to some of the consequences of stress
