Abstract Over 118 million applications for firearm transfers or permits were subject to background checks from the inception of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 on March 1, 1994, through December 31, 2010. During this time period, about 2.1 million applications, or 1.8%, were denied. In 2010, 1.5% of the 10.4 million applications for firearm transfers or permits were denied by the FBI (approximately 73,000) or by state and local agencies (approximately 80,000). The denial rate for applications checked by the FBI (1.2%) was lower than the rate for checks by state and local agencies (1.8%). This report presents the overall trends in the estimated number of applications and denials for firearm transfers or permits since the inception of the Brady Act and describes background checks for firearm transfers conducted in 2010. Data include the number of firearm transaction applications checked by state and local agencies and the FBI, the number of applications denied and the reasons for denial, and estimates of applications and denials by each type of approval system. Statistical tables also provide data on appeals of denied applications and arrests for falsified documents. (PsycEXTRA Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

Abstract This conference presentation abstract summarizes a study that investigated the relationship between eating behavior patterns and parental autonomy support, parental warmth and involvement, parental care and overprotection, and parental control. Results reveal that extreme dieting was negatively and significantly related to mothers' autonomy support, warmth, care and involvement, and father's involvement and care and positively related to mother's overprotection. Uninhibited eating behavior had a negative and significant relation to mother's warmth and involvement and father's involvement. (PsycEXTRA Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

Abstract In this episode of the NIH Research Radio, a podcast, the host, Joe Balintfy, talks with John P. Spencer, a psychology professor and co-author of a paper published in the journal Cognitive Science. The two discuss Spencer's NIH-funded research at the University of Iowa that has shown how infants learn by taking inventory of things they see. Spencer describes his research team's mathematical model called the dynamic neural field model that explains how infants learn to look, explore their world, and how changes over time change the nature of visual exploration. Spencer also discusses how his team's work on preterm infants and siblings of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may give insights on ADHD because premature infants are at risk for ADHD in the future. Highlights from the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study, the Parkinson's Disease Biomarkers Program, and a new preliminary NIH study on ASD are also provided.

Title The Gender Wage Gap: 2012
Publication Date Mar 2013
Language English
Source The Gender Wage Gap: 2012; Mar 2013; 5 pp.
Abstract In 2012, the ratio of women's to men's median weekly full-time earnings was 80.9 percent, a decline of more than one percentage point since 2011 when the ratio was 82.2 percent. This corresponds to a weekly gender wage gap of 19.1 percent for 2012. Women's median weekly earnings in 2012 were $691, a marginal decline compared to 2011; men's median weekly earnings were $854, a marginal increase compared to 2011...African American and Hispanic workers of both sexes earn considerably less than white workers; as a result, the gender earnings ratio based on earnings of men of the same background is narrower than the gap for women of all races considered together. Yet, when the gender earnings ratio is measured using white men's earnings as the comparison it shows marked disadvantage for Hispanic and African American women. African American women's median weekly earnings were only 68.1 percent, and Hispanic/Latina women's only 59.3 percent of median weekly white men's earnings. This fact sheet contains more discussion and additional statistics. (PsycEXTRA Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

Title Psychosocial Treatment for Women With Depression and Pain

Abstract Patients with depression and pain have poorer outcomes in response to depression treatments than depressed patients without pain. While psychotherapy treatment studies have demonstrated improvement in pain and depression, no psychosocial interventions have been developed and tested prospectively specifically for patients with both conditions. Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), an effective treatment for depression, has been adapted successfully for physically ill patients and demonstrates good adherence, treatment satisfaction, and depression outcomes. The investigators propose to test a modified form of IPT-P for depressed patients with co-morbid pain. (PsycEXTRA Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)
