Psychologists at the University of California, Berkeley, say these absurd-sounding questions might help us better understand what's at the heart of some of society's most vexing arguments.  published online Thursday  in the journal shows that our concepts about and associations with even the most basic words vary widely.

Detecting hidden brain states
Detecting hidden brain states
Mental health disorders can only be diagnosed on the basis of symptoms - and individual outcomes cannot be accurately predicted. An ETH scientist hopes to change that with the help of mathematical models. Why do we have emotions? Klaas Enno Stephan, a professor at ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, considers the question carefully before answering: "It seems very plausible that the purpose of the emotions is to make us aware of unconscious processes in the body." As a doctor and researcher, Stephan is particularly interested in the interaction between brain and body.
