Identifying emotional deficits in nonclinical psychopathy and Machiavellianism by Farah Ali( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The affective style of individuals on the psychopathy continuum has been investigated since Cleckley's (1941) extensive documentation. However, as researchers have since focused on individuals at the extreme end of the spectrum, nonclinical psychopathy remains an under-researched topic. For example, a lack of empathy is considered a defining feature of psychopathy, yet little research has examined the relationship between nonclinical psychopathy and empathy. Although Machiavellianism most likely falls on the psychopathy continuum, research has barely investigated whether similar emotional deficits exist in Machiavellianism. In addition, studies investigating emotional deficits/dysfunction in psychopathy have often not differentiated between the primary and secondary subtypes. This dissertation aims to examine whether emotional deficits potentially associated with psychopathy in clinical samples are also associated with psychopathy (primary and secondary) and Machiavellianism in nonclinical samples. In addition, this dissertation identifies variations and similarities in emotional deficits among primary psychopathy, secondary psychopathy and Machiavellianism in nonclinical samples. Study 1 examines the psychopathy subtypes and Machiavellianism in relation to trait anxiety. Study 2 investigates the psychopathy subtypes and Machiavellianism in relation to the emotional Stroop paradigm. Study 3 examines the psychopathy subtypes and Machiavellianism in relation to alexithymia. Study 4 explores aggression, aggressive thoughts and intergroup hostility in relation to the psychopathy subtypes and Machiavellianism. Emotional empathy is investigated in study 5, and study 6 investigates whether Theory of Mind (ToM) deficits exist in these traits. The 7th and final study investigates the traits in relation to life satisfaction and intimate relationships. The results indicate that nonclinical psychopathy and Machiavellianism are associated with trait anxiety, alexithymia, aggression, emotional empathy errors, ToM errors, lesser life satisfaction and relationship quality, but not with interference on the emotional Stroop paradigm. The implications of the empirical results for our understanding of emotional dysfunction in psychopathic and Machiavellian traits are discussed

Pathophysiology of peste des petits ruminants in sheep (Dorper & Kajli) and goats (Boer & Beetal)( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Peste des petits ruminants (PPR), an economically important viral transboundary disease of small ruminants is not only prevalent in Pakistan but also in other countries where people rely on agriculture and animal products. The present study was aimed at describing the pathology and antigen localization in natural PPR infections in local (Kajli sheep; Beetal goats) as well as imported small ruminant breeds (Dorper sheep; Australian Boer goat). Morbidity and mortality rates were significantly ( P < 0.001) higher in indigenous Kajli sheep (75.37 and 32.80%) and Beetal goats (81.10 and 37.24%) as compared to Dorper sheep (6.99 and 1.48%) and Australian Boer goat (5.01 and 2.23%). Affected animals exhibited high fever, severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, respiratory distress and nodular lesions on lips and nostrils. Thick mucous discharge was oozing out from nostrils. On necropsy, lungs were congested and pneumonic, with nodular and cystic appearance. Intestines were hemorrhagic with zebra stripping. Characteristic histopathological lesions of PPR were noted in intestines, lymphoid organs and lungs. In GI tract, stunting and blunting of villi, necrotic enteritis, and infiltration of mononuclear cells in duodenum, jejunum and ileum. Small intestines exhibited diffuse edema of the submucosa along with proliferation of fibrocytes leading to thickened submucosa which has not been reported previously. Lymphoid organs showed partial to complete destruction of lymphoid follicles. Lesions of the respiratory tract included depictive of bronchopneumonia, severe congestion of trachea and apical lobe of lungs with deposition of fibrinous materials. Histopathological lesions of respiratory tract were severe and characteristic of broncho‐interstitial pneumonia, bronchopneumonia, interstitial pneumonia and fibrinous pneumonia. The alveoli were filled with edematous fluid mixed with fibrinous exudate, numerous alveolar macrophages, mononuclear cells along with thickened interalveolar septa and presence of intranuclear eosinophilic inclusion bodies. One-Step RT-PCR using NP3 and NP4 primers confirmed a PPR virus of 352 bp size in spleen, lungs and mesenteric and brachial lymph node samples. It was concluded that morbidity and mortality due to PPR were significantly higher in indigenous breeds of sheep and goat as compared to imported sheep and goat breeds. PPR has rendered various lesions in GI and respiratory tract which are characteristic in nature for the diagnosis of the disease under field condition. Highlights: PPR was studied in local (Kajli sheep and Beetal goats) and imported breeds (Dorper sheep & Australian Boer goats). Morbidity and mortality were significantly higher in indigenous than imported breeds. On necropsy, lungs were pneumonic, with nodular and cystic appearance and intestines were hemorrhagic with zebra stripping. Histopathologically, lugs showed interstitial, broncho-interstitial, bronchopneumonia, and fibrinous pneumonia. One-Step RT-PCR confirmed a PPR virus of 352 bp size in various organs
Asymmetrical length adaptation in airway smooth muscle : possible mechanisms by Farah Ali( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Airway smooth muscle (ASM) regulates flow resistance in the airways of the lung. Dysfunction of the smooth muscle is implicated in the exaggerated airway narrowing seen in asthma, possibly due to adaptation of ASM to excessively short lengths. In this study, we examined the behaviour of ASM in its adaptation to large changes in cell length and the underlying mechanisms for its ability to adapt and regain optimal contractility. Isometric force measured immediately after a length change revealed that the amount of decrease in force after the length change was very sensitive to the direction of the length change (more sensitive in release than in stretch), and relatively insensitive to the absolute lengths from/to which the muscle was stretched or released. Force decreased by 20.4±0.9 (%) when muscle length was doubled from an arbitrarily chosen reference length (Lref, at which the muscle had been adapted); in the reversed direction with a halving of 2xLref, the decrease in force was 48.0±2.3 (%). Quantification of myosin filament density by electron microscopy revealed a similar asymmetry; a length increase from Lref to 1.6xLref resulted in no significant decrease in filament density, but a length decrease from 1.6xLref to Lref left only 81.0± 3.3 (%) of the filaments intact (P<0.05). Velocity measurements after step changes in length revealed that velocity was proportional to muscle length, and the change in velocity was almost instantaneous after the length change (without full adaptation). We have developed a model to explain all the above results. It appears that length change leads to an immediate reconfiguration of the actin filament lattice so that the number of contractile units (appropriate to length) can be formed. Formation of myosin filaments within the actin filament lattice appears to be a separate process, which requires a longer time and tends to influence force and not velocity
