From: Handbook of Behavioral Neuroscience, Related terms: Lesion; Peptide; Passive Avoidance. Risk-averse people prefer a sure thing to a gamble that has the same expected value.

In fact, they will prefer the sure thing to a gamble with a slightly lower expected value. Because it can diversify risk, the insurance company cares only about the expected value.

Thus an insurance company behaves as if it were risk-neutral. Avoidance response Avoidance-response to the risk environment. book Danio rerio to a fungicide in a linear contamination gradient Article in Science of The Total Environment (1)–42 June with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

The risk of disease at some unspecified future period that could be avoided by a specified shift to a more favorable exposure distribution of recognized risks. For example, the risk of disease and premature death from smoking-related diseases could be reduced by reduction of smoking rates.

The present study examines the ability of juvenile Danio rerio to avoid pyrimethanil-contaminated water. An avoidance assay system was used with a contamination gradient formed by seven compartments, through which the fish could move and choose the preferred compartment (s).Cited by: risk management, but has been enhanced to reflect the lessons we have all been learning about risk management through the experience of the last few years.

This is the development of a national profile of environmental risks which can enable hazards to be ranked into priorities for different types of action. Once this national risk profile is known, the task of matching risk.

Risk assessment is a process to determine the nature and extent of risk, and is critical for laying the foundations for developing effective policies and strategies for disaster risk management.

The environment as hazard has been under intensive study for some 20 years, and has mostly focused on natural hazards. Industrialized countries exhibit a pattern of declining death rates and increasing damage, despite substantial investment in technical means for by: The avoidable risk (which, of course, is avoidable if we neutralize the effect of exposure to a particular phenomenon) is the opposite to the attributable other words, it is the difference between the risk encountered by nonexposed individuals and that encountered by individuals exposed to the phenomenon.

In the other context, risk is interpreted more narrowly to mean the probability or chance of suffering an adverse consequence, or of encountering some loss.

An overview of the methods used for risk analysis in a variety of industrial sectors, with a particular focus on the consideration of human aspects, this book provides a definition of all the fundamental notions associated with risks and risk management, as well as clearly placing the discipline of risk analysis within the broader context of risk management processes.

the magnitude of the risk encountered (O’Donovan et al., ). The magnitude of a risk is not a one-dimensional construct, but consists of different components. The two components that have been studied most extensively are the likelihood and the severity of the risk.
