Impact[ edit ] Much research has been conducted on the various impacts of emotion on decision-making. Studies indicate the complexity and breadth of those impacts. Listed below are some examples of their results.
Under a Creative Commons license Abstract Objective To determine the prevalence of pregnancy-specific anxiety PSA and its associated factors among pregnant women during the three trimesters of pregnancy. Setting A major maternity government hospital in southern state of Kerala, India.
Participants low risk pregnant women who attended the major maternity government hospital during the period June —July were selected as convenient sample.
Methods An exploratory research design with a prospective cohort approach was adopted for the study. Results Highest prevalence of pregnancy-specific anxiety PSA was reported during the third trimester of pregnancy.
All pregnant women rated high levels of third trimester childbirth anxiety compared to other three components of pregnancy-specific anxiety. Young age, nulliparous status and nuclear family nature were identified as common risk factors of pregnancy-specific anxiety. Conclusion During the transition to motherhood, the risk factors and timing of heightened pregnancy-specific anxiety differ.
Higher prevalence of pregnancy anxiety among nulliparous and younger pregnant women necessitates an integrated routine screening of PSA during prenatal care. Early detection, prevention and management of pregnancy anxiety will enable women to cope with the challenges of pregnancy.
Previous article in issue.When presented with challenging tasks, children who were found to have defects in emotional regulation (high-risk) spent less time attending to tasks and more time throwing tantrums or fretting than children without emotional regulation problems (low-risk).

sonal high-risk situations), particu-larly interpersonal conflict (e.g., an argument with a family member), also result in negative emotions and can precipitate relapse. In fact, intra-personal negative emotional states and interpersonal conflict situations served as triggers for more than one-half of all relapse episodes in Marlatt’s () analysis.
To determine the prevalence of pregnancy-specific anxiety (PSA) and its associated factors among pregnant women during the three trimesters of pregnancy. Design A prospective explorative survey was conducted among low-risk Indian pregnant women of age 18–35 years.
A review found that groups associated with higher levels of neuroticism are young adults who are at high risk for mood disorders and women.  For sex, the same review found that "research in large samples has shown that levels of N (neuroticism) are higher in women than men.
Incarceration is associated with multiple and concurrent partnerships, which are determinants of sexually transmitted infections (STI), including HIV. The associations between incarceration and high-risk sex partnerships may exist, in part, because incarceration disrupts stable sex partnerships.
