  1. A Rational Treatment for an Irrational Fear [Download]

    Title: A Rational Treatment for an Irrational Fear
    Creator: Amanda McIvor
    Description: This report analyzes and compares four of the most promising techniques used to date on treating phobias namely flooding, modeling and desensitization (both systematic and in vivo). These techniques are analyzed through five selected and thoroughly examined case studies. This report also analyzes the results obtained from experiments utilizing the abovementioned procedures in order to judge effectiveness. In order to be deemed effective, these processes need to be able to not only eradicate the fear response but also maintain participant safety and comfort in treatment and produce longevity, as to not result in redevelopment of the phobia.
    Subjects: fear, phobia, irrational, flooding, modeling, systematic desensitization , in vivo desensitization

  6. Mapping the Interactions of the World: A Summary of Network Study and Application [Download]

    Title: Mapping the Interactions of the World: A Summary of Network Study and Application
    Creator: Albach, Michele H.
    Description: This report summarizes the milestones hit in network research. It opens by defining networks and their significance, and then goes through explaining in logical order all major contributions to network study. The report starts by describing the work done by Travers and Milgram in determining the world’s shortest path length, and then highlights the major work done by Strogatz and Watts in defining small-world networks. It then goes on to discuss work done by Albert and Barábasi in scale-free networks and that done by Newman, Kleinberg, and Watts and Kossinets on network searchability and dynamics. The report concludes by providing multiple examples of network application, and discussing what is next in network study.
    Subjects: Small-world Networks, Searchability, 6 Degrees of Separation, Small World, Clustering Coefficient, Network Dynamics, Shortest Path Length, Scale-free Networks, Networks
