Extreme metal music and anger processing

The claim that listening to extreme music causes anger, and expressions of anger such as aggression and delinquency have yet to be substantiated using controlled experimental methods. In this study, 39 extreme music listeners aged 18–34 years were subjected to an anger induction, followed by random assignment to 10 min of listening to extreme music from their own playlist, or 10 min silence (control). Measures of emotion included heart rate and subjective ratings on the Positive...


Editorial: Paradigm changes are required in HIV vaccine research

In his influential book “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” published in 1962, Thomas Kuhn argued that researchers in every field of scientific enquiry are always guided by theoretical assumptions, presuppositions, and hypotheses that constitute the prevailing scientific paradigm under which they operate at any given time (1). When they operate within a shared paradigm, a scientific community working in a particular field will be committed to using certain ...


Herbert: design and realization of a full-sized anthropometrically correct humanoid robot

In this paper, we present the development of a new full-sized anthropometrically correct humanoid robot Herbert. Herbert has 33 DOFs: (1) 29 active DOFs (2 × 4 in the legs, 2 × 7 in the arms, 4 in the waist and 3 in the head) and (2) 4 passive DOFs (2 × 2 in the ankles). We present the objectives of the design and the development of our system, the hardware (mechanical, electronics) as well as the supporting software architecture that encompasses the...


Immune responses to AAV vectors, from bench to bedside

The recent wave of clinical studies highlighted the enormous potential of gene therapy as an approach to the treatment of inherited disorders. While in recent years lentiviral vectors have dominated the field of ex vivo gene transfer applications in man, adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors have become the platform of choice for the in vivo correction of many diseases. Despite these successes, however, studies in humans evidenced the immune...
