(Best Syndication News) - Anger is generally thought of as a negative emotion, but one research study found that anger can also motivate people to want things more, which could be positive. The researchers published their study results in the recent issue of Psychological Science.

Henk Aarts was the lead researcher of the study from Utrecht University in the Netherlands and worked his colleagues to investigate how anger can cause a person to want to get their hands on something.

The study had participants look at a computer display that showed pictures of common everyday objects before each image however the researchers flashed either a happy, angry or neutral face. They were testing the subliminal image flash of the emotional faces with each object. At the end of the sequence of images the researchers asked which object the participants wanted the most. In another test sequence they had the participants squeeze a handgrip for how much they wanted the object. The participant that had the hardest grip was more likely to win it was the motivation for desire of the object.

(Best Syndication News) Men and boys will be happy with the results of a study from researchers at the Centre for Vision Research at York University in Canada found that young men that played video games for at least 4 hours per week had better eye hand coordination than those that did not play video games on a regular basis. The researchers presented the study results in the October 2010 issue of Elsevier's Cortex (http://www.elsevier.com/locate/cortex).

The researchers said that the way that the brain processed the eye-hand coordination or visuomotor skills were using the prefrontal cortex at the front of the brain compared to parietal cortex which is the part of the brain that is used by the hand-eye coordination. The boys that didn't play video games had their brain activity in the parietal cortex while the video gamers had the prefrontal cortex activated.

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) increased its warning for the prescription drug tramadol which is used to treat chronic pain. Tramadol is found in Ultram (tramadol hydrochloride) and Ultracet (tramadol hydrochloride/acetaminophen) and can increase the risk for suicide in some patients. Ortho-McNeil-Janssen will be notifying medical professionals of the new warnings.

Medical professionals shouldn't prescribe tramadol to people that could become addicted or are already suicidal. In addition careful consideration should be made when prescribing to patients that are taking tranquilizers, antidepressants, drink alcohol in excess, or have emotional problems.

The FDA said that the new warning will point out that there is a risk of overdose of tramadol when combined with alcohol or other CNS depressants such as sedatives, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants, and tricyclic anti-depressants. There is also an increased risk that tramadol could be misused or abused.
