Electrons .
Electron .
Electron, Fast .
Electrons, Fast .
Fast Electron .
Negatron .
Positron .
Fast Electrons .
Negatrons .
Positrons .
Stable elementary particles having the smallest known negative charge, present in all elements; also called negatrons. Positively charged electrons are called positrons. The numbers, energies and arrangement of electrons around atomic nuclei determine the chemical identities of elements. Beams of electrons are called CATHODE RAYS. .
Negativism .
State of mind or behavior characterized by extreme skepticism and persistent opposition or resistance to outside suggestions or advice. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994) .

Sensitivity and Specificity .
Sensitivity .
Specificity and Sensitivity .
Specificity .
True Positive .
True Negative .
True Negative Rate .
True Positive Rate .
Binary classification measures to assess test results. Sensitivity or recall rate is the proportion of true positives. Specificity is the probability of correctly determining the absence of a condition. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed) .
Negative Staining .
Staining, Negative .
The technique of washing tissue specimens with a concentrated solution of a heavy metal salt and letting it dry. The specimen will be covered with a very thin layer of the metal salt, being excluded in areas where an adsorbed macromolecule is present. The macromolecules allow electrons from the beam of an electron microscope to pass much more readily than the heavy metal; thus, a reversed or negative image of the molecule is created. .
Pessimism .
Negative Thinking .
Thinking, Negative .
Mental attitude that interprets life events as generally being negative. .
