Even though there have been truly significant advances in modern medicine, health problems still abound and cause untold misery.

Every year, a quarter of a million infants are born with a birth defect and undergo expensive surgery, or are hidden away in institutions. Other degenerative diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and chronic fatigue afflict a significant majority of Americans.

Many athletes credit drugs with improving their performance, but some of them may want to thank their brain instead. Mounting evidence suggests that the boost from human growth hormone (HGH), an increasingly popular doping drug, might be caused by the placebo effect. In a new double-blind trial funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency, in which neither researchers nor participants knew who was receiving HGH and who was taking a placebo, the researchers asked participants to guess whether or not they were on the real drug. Then they examined the results of the group who guessed that they were getting HGH when, in fact, they had received a placebo. That group improved at four fitness tests measuring strength, endurance, power and sprint capacity. The study participants who guessed correctly that they were taking a placebo did not improve, according to preliminary results presented at the Society for Endocrinology meeting in June 2011. “The finding really shows the power of the mind” said Ken Ho, an endocrinologist at the Garvan Institute in Sydney, Australia, who led the study. She maintains that many athletes are reaping the benefits of the placebo effect, without knowing whether what they are taking is beneficial or not.
65) It is clearly stated in the passage that the support given by certain drugs ----.
A)is largely accepted for its positive contribution to performance
B)has been proven by many studies around the world
C)has led authorities to take the necessary measures against these drugs
D)has been openly disputed by most of the athletes
E)results in the improved performances of all the athletes who take them
66) According to the results of the study funded by the World Anti-Doping Agency, ----.
A)the study participants were all aware they were given a placebo
B)those who knew that they were given real drugs failed to show improvement in fitness tests
C)the athletes who did not know they were given a placebo did well on fitness tests
D)the preliminary findings showed the increased popularity of drugs
E)the effects of HGH are incompatible with those found in other studies
67) It is understood from the passage that the placebo effect ----.
A)is highly esteemed among those who are interested in athletics
B)can play a significant role in improving the performances of athletes
C)has been monitored in the participating groups that consist of people taking doping drugs
D)was also tested in other branches of sports where competition exists

Reading presents a real paradox to neurobiologists. It was only invented a few thousand years ago, so there really has not been enough time for our brain to evolve specialized ways to do it. How do brain circuits produced by millions of years of evolution in a world without written words adapt to the specific challenges of reading? We know we have to learn the skill but how does our brain learn to read? in the social sciences, the majority of researchers do not see a problem. There is a widespread view that the brain is a completely adaptable organ, capable of absorbing any form of culture. Yet recent findings from brain imaging studies and neurophysiology throw new light on the organization of the reading circuits in the brain. The findings contradict this simplistic model of a brain that merely absorbs everything from its cultural environment. And they suggest that the architecture of our brain is limited by strong genetic constraints though it seems that it has still some degree of flexibility.
69) The passage makes the point that, until recently, ----.
A)it was only the abnormal brain that attracted any attention
B)researchers in social sciences ignored the views of neurophysiologists concerning the brain
C)the brain was generally thought to adapt itself easily to new cultural environments
D)the structure of the brain did not attract much attention except from neurobiologists
E)neurophysiologists were not aware of the structural complexity of the brain
70) The writer is intrigued by the fact that the brain, which evolved long before the written word came into use, ----.
A)had already had the genetic capacity to form words
B)had been able to communicate through images
C)had already developed certain reading circuits
D)managed to adapt itself to the very distinct skill of reading
E)had already achieved full flexibility to adapt itself to new forms of culture
71) A recent view neurophysiologists, the brain, is that ----.
A)it is extremely lastik, esnek, eğilebilir'>flexible as it is not affected by genetic heritage
B)its structure is largely shaped by genetic traits
C)it has developed various specialized skills over the last thousand years or so
D)its circuits have remained constant for millions of years
E)its creative powers are more apparent in some fields of learning
72) According to the passage, although people have had the skill of reading for several thousand years, ----.
A)the actual process of learning how to read has only just been discovered by neurophysiologists
B)there has been no improvement in the speed at when people can read
C)the brain remains inflexible and cannot cope with different cultures
D)from the angle of evolution, this has been insufficient for the brain to develop particularized reading skills
E)it is only in the social sciences that this skill has been seriously studied

Therapists have to be very careful before they make a diagnosis of delusional disorder. A great many complaints are founded on fact. It is possible that a patient is really being harassed at work, that her husband is deceiving her, or that her business partner is cheating her. Indeed, therapists must be careful not to mislabel facts as delusions, a trap known as "the Martha Mitchell effect". Martha Mitchell was the wife of former US attorney general John Mitchell. In October 1972, he was accused of having ordered the break-in at the Democratic campaign headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. Mrs Mitchell repeatedly told the press that her husband was being made a scapegoat to protect the real culprit , President Richard M. Nixon. The White House spread disinformation about Mrs Mitchell, saying she had a drinking problem and implying that her statements were delusional. When the scandal was ultimately unravelled, Mrs Mitchell's statements were proved true and she was shown to be utterly sane and with no drinking problem.
73) The passage draws attention to the fact that ----.
A)John Mitchell had indeed violated the law on several occasions
B)it can sometimes be difficult for therapists to distinguish between fact and delusion
C)President Nixon had never trusted his attorney general
D)Mrs Mitchell had always been subject to delusions
E)complaints always have a foundation in fact
74) We understand from the passage that Mrs Mitchell ----.
A)was often treated by therapists on account of her delusions
B)did indeed have a drinking problem
C)was indifferent to the disinformation spread by the White House
D)was unjustly portrayed as suffering from delusions
E)displayed little interest in the Watergate affair
75) We learn from the passage that, in the Watergate affair, US attorney general John Mitchell ----.
A)was criminally involved in the break-in at the Democratic campaign headquarters
B)was made to appear as the leading wrongdoer
C)asked the press to interview his wife
D)advised President Nixon on the legal procedure
E)was anxious that his wife should not get involved with the press
76) According to the passage, Mrs Mitchell's statements about her husband ----.
A)were disregarded by the press
B)were imaginary rather than factual
C)were, in fact, true but deliberately denied
D)convinced President Nixon that his attorney general was innocent
E)were examined by therapists on a regular basis

Women seem to be particularly vulnerable to depression during their reproductive years: Rates of the disorder are highest in females between the ages of 25 and 45. New data indicate that the incidence of depression in females rises after giving birth. In 2007 Patricia Dietz reported that 10.4%of 4,398 mothers had been depressed in the nine months following childbirth compared with 8.7% in the nine months before pregnancy and 6.9% during pregnancy. More than half of the women with post natal depression had also been depressed during or before pregnancy suggesting that a previous occurrence of depression may be the biggest risk factor for acquiring the illness post partum depression. But the hormonal changes that occur in a new mother's body are also thought to contribute to postpartum depression. During pregnancy, a woman experiences a surge in blood levels of oestrogen and progesterone. Then, in the first 48 hours after childbirth, the amount of these two hormones falls suddenly, almost back to normal levels. This chemical instability could contribute to depression. Of course, hormonal flux does not fully explain postpartum depression. After all, this biochemical fluctuation occurs in all new mothers and yet only a relatively small proportion of them become depressed.
77) It is understood from the passage that one of the causes of postpartum depression could be ----.
A)the hormonal changes that are similar to those in the absence of pregnancy
B)the sudden decrease in the amount of oestrogen and progesterone following childbirth
C)the chemical stability in the blood levels during the first48 hours after childbirth
D)a biochemical fluctuation taking place before pregnancy begins
E)that some mothers are not psychologically ready to care for a baby
78) According to the study by Patricia Dietz, ----.
A)the level of depression among women was particularly high in 2007
B)the incidence of depress ion in females rises just before giving birth
C)the highest level of depression is seen during pregnancy
D)the majority of the women had all suffered from depress ion
E)women are depressed most in the nine months following childbirth
79) As pointed out in the passage, besides biological factors, another factor suggested for the emergence of postpartum depression is ----
A)chemical instability after pregnancy
B)a surge and flux in blood levels
C)a previous experience of depression
D)a 5O-ld drop of oestrogen and progesterone
E)hormonal changes in the mothers body
80) It can be Inferred from the passage that ----.
A)postpartum depression is seen in women who give birth to more than one child
B)the most important factor in explaining postpartum depression is the vulnerability of women when pregnant
C)Patricia Dietz has failed to determine the causes of depression despite her extensive studies
D)pregnant women appear to be more vulnerable to depression than men whose wives are pregnant
E)factors other than chemical instability can also be responsible for postpartum depression among women in their reproductive years
