Have you ever been stressed out by the idea of doing math or statistics problems? You’re not alone. A new study has used a questionnaire and an analytical technique called "network science" to determine precisely what factors contribute to this kind of statistics anxiety among psychology majors.
Anxiety and depression are surprisingly common among young children. But it can be hard to detect these conditions, known as “internalizing disorders,” because the symptoms are so inward-facing that parents, teachers and doctors often fail to notice them. Now, researchers have developed a tool that could help screen children for internalizing disorders to catch them early enough to be treated.
