    Authors: Amanda Edwards-Stewart*, Christopher J. Keller, Zeba S. Ahmad Jennifer June, Ryan Hamann, Meghan McBrearty

    Overview of the Japanese Situation for Supporting Anorexia Nervosa
    Author: Toru Uehara*
    Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a serious behavioral illness characterized by an excessively low body weight, intense fear of gaining weight, and a distorted perception of body image. AN patients demonstrate several abnormal behaviors including severe eating restriction, laxative misuse, excessive exercising, or binge-eating/purging. This mental and psychosomatic illness is intricately associated with biopsychosocial factors, and is considered a socio-cultural condition. Differences between Western and other countries have been implicated, indeed comparing those in Japan. This review summarizes Japanese findings and support systems for AN, and especially focuses on its prevalence, comorbidities, etiological research, and treatment services.
    The Great Value of Non-Verbal Communication to Assess Suicide Risk in a Patient with Schizophrenia
    Authors: Lama Muhammad MD*, Gerardo Villarreal MD
    This is a case report of a patient with schizophrenia being evaluated in outpatient clinic for regular follow up appointment. The patient was found not adherent with his medication. The providers noticed while screening for suicide a change from his baseline in non-verbal communication. This change in non-verbal communication raised concerns about patient’s safety, led the providers to hospitalize the patient, and may have saved his life.
    Psychopathy, Impulsiveness and Violence: How are they linked?
    Author: Richard C. Howard*
    Abstract: This paper attempts to elucidate possible relationships between three multifaceted constructs: psychopathy, impulsiveness and violence. A recently developed and validated quadripartite violence typology is described which parses violence into two motivationally distinct types according to whether it is appetitively or aversively driven.
    Cognitive differences between conspecific ant colonies
    Author: Marie-Claire Cammaerts*
    Abstract: On the basis of previous observations, we presumed that cognitive differences exist between colonies of the same species. We assessed 10 ethological traits in four colonies of Myrmica ruginodis collected the same day from the same site and identically maintained in the laboratory.
    Is electromagnetism one of the causes of the CCD? A work plan for testing this hypothesis
    Author: Marie-Claire Cammaerts*
    Abstract:The decline of domestic bees all over the world is an important problem still not well understood by scientists and beekeepers, and far from being solved. Its reasons are numerous: among others, the use of pesticides and insecticides, the decrease of plant diversity, and bee’s parasites. Besides these threats, there is a potential adverse factor little considered: manmade electromagnetism.
    Effects of children’s temperament on mothers’ and caregivers’ supportive reactions related to socialization of emotion regulation
    Author: Chia-Hui Chang, Ishien Li*

    Religious Minorities and Prejudice: Are Buddhist Minorities Prejudiced toward Other Minority Groups?
    Author:Magali Clobert*

    Disturbing honeybees’ behavior with electromagnetic waves: a methodology
    Author: Danial Favre*
    Abstract: Mobile phone companies and policy makers point to studies with contradictory results and usually claim that there is a lack of scientific proof of adverse effects of electromagnetic fields on animals.
    In a Novel Situation, Ants can Learn to React as Never Before - a Preliminary Study
    Author: Marie-Claire Cammaerts*
    Abstract: It has been known for a long time that ants can acquire behavioral reactions by conditioning and by imitation. The aim of the present work was to examine if they could, through such learning processes, acquire never previously exhibited behavior or learn to use new methods.
