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

“We set out to test whether the unconscious mind could catch a liar – even when the conscious mind failed,” says ten Brinke. Along with Berkeley-Haas Assistant Professor Dana R. Carney, lead author ten Brinke and Dayna Stimson (BS 2013, Psychology), hypothesized that these seemingly paradoxical findings may be accounted for by unconscious mental processes.

AARP Emphasizes Affordable Care Act Education in Hispanic Communities

Written by Featured Organization on 01 July 2013.

Establishing New Collaborations to Reach Hispanic Population with Training and Resources
WASHINGTON -- Today, AARP announced a new effort focused in Hispanic communities to increase education and knowledge about the Affordable Care Act and to prepare families for the opening of health exchanges in the fall. AARP is collaborating with a number of organizations in this effort including the Hispanic Federation, National Council of La Raza, Esperanza and the League of United Latin American Citizens. 

Hispanics make up one of the largest uninsured populations in the country – a rate of 30.1 percent compared to 11.1 percent for non-Hispanic whites – many of whom are primarily Spanish speakers. Reaching these families with needed information and resources about the health care law and the availability of insurance and care is critical for our health care system as a whole. 

"AARP recognizes the need for educating all Americans about the health care law and we want to make sure that those without coverage have the resources and knowledge they need to get it," said Andres Castillo, AARP senior advisor for Hispanic education and outreach. "Working with these Hispanic organizations will allow us to amplify our reach in these communities and educate families that need this information." 

These strategic arrangements will focus on training and resources for promotores – members of local communities who receive specialized training to provide basic health education – to assist with the enrollment process for health insurance. In addition to providing these organizations with educational materials, AARP is committed to a number of training and pilot programs in states across the country. 

"We encourage everyone to take the time to find out what the health care law means for them. People have a lot of questions about the law and we believe AARP can help answer those questions and let people know about the many benefits available to them," concluded Castillo. 

For more information on what the health law means for you visit HealthLawAnswers.org or MiLeydeSalud.org.
