Many people suggest changing your attitude (态度) by thinking of something bright and happy. However, scientists from Queen’s University in Canada said that there might be another
way: by walking like a happy person.【出处：21 教育名师】 “It is not surprising that our mood and the way we feel affects (影响) how we walk, but we want to see whether the way we move also affects how we feel,” explained Nikolaus Troje, the lead scientist, to The Independent. Scientists believed that the way we remember emotional ( 令人动情的 ) messages is affected by our mood. Those who suffer from depression (抑郁) remember negative information far more easily than positive messages, especially when the information is about them. In order to prove this, Troje and his team used cameras to observe 47 people walking on the treadmill (跑步机). Half of the people were encouraged to mimic (模仿) a depressive walking style, while the other half moved like a happy person. Walking speed was kept equal for both groups. During the time on the treadmill, the scientists read out a list of positive and negative words, askingpeople to decide whether or not each word described them well. Afterwards, people were asked to recite as many of the words as they could remember. As expected, those who had been mimicking a depressed walk recalled more negative words than those that had been walking in a happy manner. This finding means that our walk influences the way we process information. And the scientists believe that using a happy walking style could help with treatment for depression. 34. Which of the following is closest in the meaning to the underlined word “negative” in the first paragraph? A. sad and inactive C. patient and straight thoughts? A. Doing something happy. C. Thinking of something bright. A. The 47 people walked on the treadmill. B. The two groups walked at different speeds. C. Half of the people walked in a happy walking style. D. Another half walked in a depressive walking style. 37. According to the story, the finding can help ▲ . A. improve one’s living skills C. change a person’s walking habit B. record people’s happy memory D. treat patients with depression B. Walking like a happy person. D. Thinking about being a happy person. B. angry and nervous D. lonely and boring 35. What new way did scientists from Queen’s University possibly find to change negative 36. Which of the following is NOT true about Troje’s test?
C Do you know electricity can change the way we taste food? Don’t feel surprised at the fact. A special electric fork invented by Japanese researchers could make any dish taste salty. According to Hiromi Nakamura, a Post Doctor Researcher at Meiji University of Japan, the technology can be very useful for people with special eating habits. For example, the sick with high blood pressure(高血压) can easily develop a low-salt eating habit and still enjoy delicious food. And with the fork, there’s totally no risk of over-salting their food. Luckily, the voltage(电压) is so small that it is safe to use the fork. The idea of adding electricity to food was first shown to public as an experiment at the Computer Human Interaction Conference in Austin, Texas, in 2012. Nakamura and her team connected a wire(导线) to a9-volt battery(电池) and passed it through a straw (吸管) placed in a cup of sweetlemonade. Volunteers reported that the lemonade tasted not as sweet as it usually was, because the electricity created the taste of salt. Nakamura has improved the technology to be able to make the electricity reach the food through forks and chopsticks. “The metallic part of the fork is one electrode(电极), and the handle is the other,” Nakamura explained. “When you take a piece of food with the fork and put it in your mouth, you connect the circuit. When you take the fork out of your mouth, you disconnect the circuit. So it actually works as a switch.” Simon Klose, TV presenter of food program Munchies, who recently visited Nakamura to try out the fork himself, then said it was one of the greatest eating experiences he’d ever had. “When I first heard of electric food, it sounded terrible.” he said. He later continued to use the fork to eat pieces of fr chicken, and found that the saltiness greatly increased as the electricity was connected. Nakamura has been eating “electric” food for the past three to four years in order to understand it better. “For me,” she said, “it may seem like we’re cooking but we’re actually working on the human taste.”
