    Description

    Perceived social support has been hypothesized to protect against the pathogenic effects of stress. How such protection might be conferred, however, is not well understood. Using a sample of 404 healthy adults, we examined the roles of perceived social support and received hugs in buffering against interpersonal stress-induced susceptibility to infectious disease. Perceived support was assessed by questionnaire, and daily interpersonal conflict and receipt of hugs were assessed by telephone interviews on 14 consecutive evenings. Subsequently, participants were exposed to a virus that causes a common cold and were monitored in quarantine to assess infection and illness signs. Perceived support protected against the rise in infection risk associated with increasing frequency of conflict. A similar stress-buffering effect emerged for hugging, which explained 32% of the attenuating effect of support. Among infected participants, greater perceived support and more-frequent hugs each predicted less-severe illness signs. These data suggest that hugging may effectively convey social support.

  • Eye movements evoked by simultaneous stimulation of two sites in superior colliculus
    Internal Dataset

    Authors
    • Katnani, Husam
    • Gandhi, Neeraj
    Description

    The authors measured eye movements evoked by electrical stimulation delivered simultaneously to two sites in the superior colliculus of nonhuman primates. The effects of current frequency and intensity on movement trajectories are available. The data are potentially useful for understanding algorithms for decoding movement commands from population activity in the superior colliculus.
