Learning to read people is also a simpler process than learning to readbooks because there are fewer letters in the human alphabet. Though manseems to the untrained eye a mystifying mass of "funny little marks," heis not now difficult to analyze.[Pg 19]

Human happiness, as we have noted in the introduction to this volume, isattained only through doing what the organism was built to do, in anenvironment that is favorable. Marriage is only the attempt of twopeople to attain these two ends individually, mutually andsimultaneously.

It is noteworthy that our data suggest many individuals were seemingly unperturbed by the lockdown, and a high proportion did not experience notable changes in their visual hallucinations. For example, 38% of respondents believed their emotional reaction to hallucinations was unchanged. One explanation for this could be habituation to CBS over time, as long-term or refractory cases may be better equipped with coping mechanisms or may possess greater resilience to hallucinations. While all respondents had experience of CBS prior to the lockdown, we did not capture details on individual CBS time frames and so cannot make further comparisons. Previous research has shown a lack of association between overall duration of CBS and negative outcome,9 suggesting patients may better tolerate hallucinations or adjust to their occurrence over time. It is also striking that, for example, 71% did not believe reduced access to healthcare during the lockdown impacted their CBS. This may be due to the strengthening of remote consultations or could indicate the success of public health messaging throughout the pandemic that hospitals remain open despite travel restrictions, and that people should not ignore symptoms that might require urgent medical attention.

The test generates a pressure trace that is aligned with time points throughout the movies to estimate the response at each moment. The trace can be derived such that it is an average from a group of participants. Bootstrapping was used to compute CIs for the meanresponse of each group around these traces (N=20 000; bias-corrected and accelerated method). Traces were examined to discover which types of mobility situations caused greatest differences between people with dry AMD and controls. Statistical analysis was carried out using SPSS Statistics V.22 and MATLAB R2016b (The Mathworks, Natick, Massachusetts, USA).

It is well documented that people with AMD have difficulties with mobility. This study adds to this by exploring the effect dry AMD severity has on self-perceived mobility anxiety, and assessing predictors of this. We evaluated which types of mobility situations cause the greatest self-perceived anxiety for people with dry AMD. Our methods were novel and offer an important advantage over methods of assessing mobility directly in the real world or in a built life-like environment, such as the Pedestrian Accessibility and Movement Environment Laboratory at University College London, UK,18 and the Streetlab artificial street, Paris, France,19 in that they may be conducted in a safe environment, free from health and safety risks. The test may be presented in different ways, including through virtual/augmented reality platforms, and on portable electronic devices. It also allows for the simulation of a variety of several different environments, that is, indoor/outdoor, rural/urban, and so on. 041b061a72
