Color has long been one of the battlegrounds in psycholinguistics -- this dates back to 1969 or earlier, when Brent Berlin and Paul Kay’s book Basic Color Terms: Their Universality and Evolution was published and struck what appeared to be a deathblow to the idea that the language a person speaks affects how that person thinks (known as linguistic relativity). But over forty years later, color is still a hot topic.
Scientists have examined the effects of language on categorical color perception -- the idea that color perception is affected by how it is described in language -- with behavioral research. Meanwhile, other scholars have looked into this phenomenon using neuroimaging techniques in an attempt to get a better look at the neural processes underlying these results.
A thunderclap headache. Post-partum cerebral angiopathy. Sub-arachnoid hemorrhagic headache. Posterior reversible encephalopathy. Primary and benign angiopathies of the central nervous system. Call-Fleming syndrome. I am not throwing the dictionary at you. These are all sudden onset headaches resulting from changes in the flow of blood in cerebral arteries. Recent opinion tends to aggregate all these kinds of headaches under a common term, Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome (RCVS).
Excess food intake makes you fat. High calorie foods make you gain excess fat. Excess carbohydrates and saturated fatty acids get taken up by fat cells and get converted into fatty acids stored within them. This is what we know of the straightforward relationship between diet and obesity. Yet, the relationship between food choices and obesity is not so linear or short-term. Food choices and obesity have a more complex interdependence.
