readings in psychology for 11 december 2011

Karla drew this lovely drawing for her sister's office patterned after the 'Angry Birds' game. Soon, it created quite a stirr at Louisville and appeared on their facebook page! Congratulations Karla!

Here is what I am reading today:

“”Leaders of all ranks view admitting mistakes, spotlighting follower strengths and modeling teachability as being at the core of humble leadership,” says Bradley Owens, assistant professor of organization and human resources at the University at Buffalo School of Management. “And they view these three behaviors as being powerful predictors of their own as well as the organization’s growth.””

“It’s a big day for Angry Birds lovers, with Rovio busting out a free upgrade today for iOS with 15 special levels to honor the game’s second birthday on December 11. All episodes of the original Angry Birds game will be unlocked, so no matter how poorly you play the game, you can now take a peek into the first level of each episode. Whether you can climb up each level within those newly revealed episodes is entirely up to you.”

“Young adults who have been abused or neglected have less gray matter in certain areas of the brain than those who have not experienced maltreatment, according to a new study by the Yale School of Medicine. Overall, 42 teen participants who had reported past abuse or neglect were shown to have a reduced amount of gray matter — the tissue containing brain cells — although they had not been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder.”

“Psychological neuroscience is a field that addresses psychological questions about human behavior by investigating their underlying neural activity. This specialization is also commonly called behavioral neuroscience or neuropsychology. Embarking on a career in psychological neuroscience often requires a Ph.D., which makes a solid undergraduate background in psychology and neurobiology highly important.”
