My students understand the personal significance bit but then insist on adding that 'in collectivist... less likely to form FBM' as if theyve come across the info somewhere. Is there any truth in this?

Can McGaugh and Cahill be used (instead of Sharot) as evidence for the biological mechanism (adrenaline) that Brown & Kulik did not detail? (Or only if combined with Quervain perhaps?)

Dear Ian,

I think that McGuagh and Cahill is fine and does not have to be combined with Quevain. As for the students' comments about FBM, it is not really accurate unless they clarify which types of FBMs are fewer - that is, those of personal significance, rather than national significance.

Perfect. Thanks.
