Three ways to look at jealousy. [Review of N. Friday, Jealousy.]
This study investigated the implicit models of illness (i.e., the dimensional structure that organizes an individual’s common-sense illness schema). Factor analysis revealed a 4-dimensional structure of illnesses composed of Seriousness, Personal Responsibility, Controllability, and Changeability. The dimensions identified seemed to be both personally and psychologically meaningful.

Mood and memory: Evaluating the network theory of affect
The paper reviews the empirical literature that addresses the distinct ways in which mood can have an observable effect on memory within the framework of Bower’s Network Theory of Affect. Each prediction is supported, although congruency during learning yields the most consistent findings.
