Cognitive Networks Extract Insights on COVID-19 Vaccines from English and Italian Popular Tweets: Anticipation, Logistics, Conspiracy and Loss of Trust
👇
mdpi.com/2504-2289/6/2/…
@BDCC_MDPI @mvitevit @Fede_Botta We investigate almost 5k Popular tweets about #COVID19 and #vaccines from early 2021.
Remember when vaccines were announced?
How did massively read content frame vaccines? With which stances and emotions?
We use #cognitive networks and #machinevision to address these points!
We found #emotional #polarisation in the framing of "vaccines" in English tweets.
Emotions like trust and anticipation co-existed with negative emotions of sadness and anger.
A circumplex model corroborated this dichotomy. These emotions rose from discussions about cases/deaths:

New OA paper out in @J_Law_Biosci co-authored with @JcMalgieri: "#Mental data protection and the #GDPR".
We discuss what #privacy and #DataProtection regime is needed for data about a person's mental states. 1/6
academic.oup.com/jlb/article/9/…
In this article, we introduce the notion of ‘mental data’, defined as any data that can be organized and processed to make inferences about the mental states of a person, including their #cognitive, #affective and #conative states 2/6
We review the range of technologies (e.g. #BCIs, affective computing systems, & digital behavioral tech) that enable increasingly reliable statistical associations between certain data patterns & mental activities such as memories, intentions, & emotions. 3/6

#2 B-COMPLEX/MULTI VITAMIN. Buy a liposomal or other form that increases bio-availability. Take 1 capsule w/Breakfast and Lunch. If you have stomach upset, try sublingual (under tongue) EZ Melt B-Complex in AM & Multi w/iron for Dinner. amazon.com/Liposomal-Meth…
#3 OMEGA 3s. Fish Oil, Krill Oil, Algae Oil are all good sources of Omega 3. Be careful the EPA/DHA ratio. EPA helps with inflammation/DHA helps with cognition. You need both! Opt for a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of DHA to EPA (2:1 ratio eg. 800 DHA/400EPA) amazon.com/3Care-Concentr…

Proud to announce the final paper of my dissertation is out @ASHAJournals 🎉

Here, we aimed to assess longitudinal performance in language and other cognitive domains important for academic success in young adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) participating in intensive rehab Image
22 young adults with ABI (#stroke, traumatic brain injury (#TBI), tumor, encephalitis) attended ≥ 12-week semester of the Intensive Cognitive and Communication Rehabilitation program. The program (lectures, individual therapy, tech. training), was held 6 hours/day, 4 days/week. Image
14 young adults with ABI served as deferred treatment/usual care control participants. All participants demonstrated language and/or other cognitive impairment on a standardized assessment battery (WAB, RBANS, SCCAN, DCT) administered before/after each semester.

Study from #England looking at the impact of #SARSCoV2 on #brain #pathology in 785 UK Biobank participants (aged 51–81) imaged twice found:

-brain changes in the following regions:
--greater reduction in grey matter thickness and tissue-contrast in the orbitofrontal cortex & parahippocampal gyrus
--greater changes in markers of tissue damage in regions functionally-connected to the primary olfactory cortex
--greater reduction in global brain size.
- infected participants also showed on average larger #cognitive decline between the 2 timepoints
-these imaging and cognitive longitudinal effects were still seen after excluding the 15 cases who had been hospitalized.

I just went through what my doctors referred to as "long COVID brain fog". It is a surreal and completely debilitating experience, which robs you of basic fundamental cognition and puts you in a delirious state of complete confusion devoid of emotion and self awareness. #COVID19
I would wake up lucid, but after a few hours my mind would drop in the fog. It's tricky to explain, but the individual in your mind that maintains your agency, your personality, your desire, and your purpose in life becomes disconnected. You become a walking robot potato.
I could recollect any info you asked of me. Birthday, phone number, current president... Which made my doctor's very confused when I told them I wasn't feeling lucid.

But, my fundamental understanding of WHY I am here, and the context of my relationship with someone was severed

The brilliant psychological ploy #businesses use to trick YOU into overspending.

A thread.👇
A decade ago, behavioral economist Dan Ariely noticed something strange about the subscription option of the international weekly magazine, The Economist.

The options were:
1. Web-only subscription - $59.
2. Print-only subscription - $125.
3. Web + print subscription - $125.
Dan thought what you’re thinking right now - "why would anyone buy the print-only subscription?"

On conducting a #study among MIT students, he found out that 84% chose the web and print option while only 16% of the students chose the web-only option.

Once you get the basics of chosen software, try to advance your skills with tutorials (ex: use PowerPoint to create animations, complex diagrams, etc) Image

Let’s talk about the economy.
You agree: “A logical next step.”
Would you mind if I’m blunt?

Yes.

You ponder for a moment, then ask, “Is this another of your enemies?”
The economy?
“Yes.”
An enemy to humanity and the biological world?
“Yes.”
I hope, by the time this thread is complete, you’ll tell me.

We’re talking about the supply-and-demand, producer/consumer, deregulated/lightly-touched, invisibly-handed, limited-resource-distributing, market-based economy that prevails across much of the world.

“And it’s all entirely shit?”
Well, perhaps I need to qualify that.

The idea started with a dialogue by a colleague ”We don’t do lasers, they are ancient, we do avastin - simple, easy, less recurrence.”

Me: “there are long term risks - right?”

Colleague: Na, it’s ok, we already accepted & moved 🤨

I thought it’s good idea to pursue a #Systematicreview as the evidence is sketchy & controversial but what really pushed me to do the review is👇

Avastin can fire the brain for 60 days (#staylong) by suppressing VEGF that is crucial for brain growth

Data Twitter, who has read Storytelling with Data by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic?
I will share some insights

Chapter 1: There are two ways of analysis, Exploratory and Explanatory analysis.

Exploratory analysis is picking up important research findings that is importance to share to your audience. You might have many data you got in your findings,
but your audience might need just only 2 or 3 important data and not everything. You will understand better when people are trying to give you so many information and you can pinpoint any take away. it is better to give 2 findings or information and explain in great depth.
