The study tested 186 children ages 3 to 7 in a temptation-resistance paradigm. Approximately half of the children were lied to by an experimenter, who said there was “a huge bowl of candy in the next room” but quickly confessed this was just a ruse to get the child to come play a game.

Unconscious Mind Can Detect a Liar When Conscious Mind Fails

The unconscious mind could catch a liar

Ready, Set , Go to College

Written by Michigan Technological University on 13 May 2010.

Leaving home for college is an exciting and monumental event in a young adult’s life. And though it may seem overwhelming at times, the transition from homebody high school student to independent college freshman Leaving home for college is an exciting and monumental event in a young adult’s life. And though it may seem overwhelming at times, the transition from homebody high school student to independent college freshman needn’t be a stressful one.

“There are a number of things that students can do over the summer to prepare for their first year away at college,” says Allison Carter, director of admissions at Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Mich. “It can be easy to get wrapped up in forms and required details and forget about the other important personal necessities.”

Prepare for success in your new home away from home with the following tips:

• You’ve applied for housing and received your residence hall and roommate info—now’s the time to contact your roommate(s), get to know one another, and talk about what each person is bringing for your room. You don’t want to arrive on campus in August only to discover that you
have three microwaves and no hairdryer.

• Check out cell phone service. Depending on how far you’re moving from home, your local provider(s) may not offer service in your new area. Chat with other students to find out which company offers the strongest coverage and best deals.

• Research local banks to make sure there’s a branch conveniently located near campus. If not, you may need to open an account at a new bank and transfer funds before starting school.

• Check to see if your school requires vehicle and bike registration (most do). If so, you may be able to complete these processes online and be prepared for your arrival on campus.

• Find out about student health insurance—many universities offer options if you’re not covered by your family plan.
