an·tic·i·pa·tion

(an-tis'i-pā'shŭn),
1. Appearance before the appointed time of a periodic symptom or sign.
2. Progressively earlier age of manifestation of a hereditary disease in successive generations; may be factitious (because of heightened awareness of early signs of the disease or because these signs are more conspicuous in the young) or authentic (because of progressive loss of epistatic and modifier genes by recombination and segregation, or because of expansion of unstable alleles in successive generations).
3. An increase in the severity of a phenotype in successive generations of a family, often associated with an increase in the number of trinucleotide repeats in a causative gene (e.g., fragile X syndrome, myotonic dystrophy, Huntington disease).

anticipation

An anomalous pattern of inheritance, first identified by researcher Stephanie Sherman, in which the manifestations of a particular inherited disorder (Sherman studied Fragile X syndrome) are more marked with each passing generation of patients who are at risk of a certain mutation. Anticipation results from two genetic events; a premutation (e.g., insertion of increasing number of the trinucleotide repeat CGG), which eventually passes a threshold and becomes an active mutation in the progeny.

an·tic·i·pa·tion

(ăn-tis'i-pā'shŭn)
Foreknowledge or expectation.
[L. anticipatio, fr. anticipo, to take before]

anticipation

The occurrence of a hereditary disease at progressively earlier ages, and in progressively more severe form, in successive generations. This is a feature of a range of conditions that includes myotonic dystrophy, the fragile X syndrome and Huntington's disease.

Patient discussion about anticipation

Q. Can anyone help us by giving some dietary information to reduce on her stress? Thank you in anticipation. My aunt is suffering from breast cancer for the past 3 years. She lives in a village. She feels good after the treatment. She is having poor immunity due to which she gets cold easily. She often gets sick. This has to a great extent affected her sleep pattern also. Doctor has advised her to control the stress and also to reduce on barbeques, as she takes them a lot. We are helping her to find different ways to reduce the stress. Can anyone help us by giving some dietary information to reduce on her stress? Thank you in anticipation.

A. what we eat has an immense effect on our mood, and the other way around...
eating chocolate raises the amount of serotonin in our brain, carbohydrates also cause hormones in our body to change and calm us down. but i think the best nutritional value comes from Omega-3 fatty acids. the brain cells are built from them and they helps membrane to gain stability.

Hypothesis 3: The type of leader--member exchange relationship will significantly moderate the relationship between supervisor narcissism and subordinates' negative anticipations. The correlation between supervisor narcissism and negative anticipations will be positive at a more significant level in a low leader--member exchange relationship than it will in a high leader--member exchange relationship.
In June 2016, we conducted the second survey and collected data on negative anticipations (mediator variable) and LMX (moderator variable).
Negative anticipations. Negative anticipations were assessed with the scale adjusted by Wei and Zhang (2010), which is based on the voice situation from the Negative Anticipations Scale developed by Zhang et al.
I understand unconscious implicit anticipation as the behaviour that the creature was already equipped with either by nature (evolution) or creator (in artificial case) and which is also not voluntary controlled.
The anticipation brings into the projection another variable.
This is still nothing new however this is the basics of the anticipation. One thing that should be realized at this point is that on unconscious implicit anticipation level there is no mechanism to modify the rule base (only evolution or redesign).
The appropriateness of client anticipations about how CACGs might be used in career problem solving should be examined in light of the actual capability of the CACG systems.
Existing studies, as well as the call for further research, suggest that client anticipations play an important role in the career problem-solving process, but these studies have not systematically assessed the range of client anticipations about use of the CACG systems, nor have they directly related research results to an existing classification system.
The Anticipations About Computer Outcome--Form A (AACO-A), which we created specifically for this study, consisted of one open-ended question, "What do you anticipate the computer will do for you?" The form included 10 numbered blank lines on which the participants could record their responses.
Clarify a personal value by answering this question: If you could have only one choice, would you rather have (a) all of your anticipations be accurate while you perform at a mediocre level, or (b) none of your anticipations be accurate while you perform at an audaciously high level?
Don't even evaluate your strategic anticipations on the basis of their accuracy as forecasts.
Both enhancing and inhibiting anticipations involve trickery.
