Self-reported eye contact sensitivity and face processing in chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome
Introduction 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22qDS) has been associated with varying levels of social impairments, and with atypical visual scanning of faces. The present study explored whether self-reported sensitivity to eye contact might be related to these phenomena. Method Individuals with confirmed 22qDS were interviewed about their experience and possible discomfort with eye contact. In cases […]
Prenatal affective cognitive training: A proof-of-concept study
Negatively biased cognitive response to infant stimuli during pregnancy is associated with increased postpartum depression (PPD) risk. This proof-of-concept study aimed to investigate the feasibility and effects of a two-week affective cognitive training intervention on cognitive responses to emotional infant stimuli for pregnant participants at risk of PPD. Forty-three participants were included: 23 at high risk and 22 at […]
Design and assessment of an experimental model for evaluating the effectiveness of audiovisual products on the circular economy aimed at promoting environmental awareness
Communication is crucial to encourage citizens to adopt sustainable habits, but the effectiveness of awareness-raising actions in the last decade has been limited. Therefore, it is essential to invest efforts to understand and improve the effectiveness of environmental awareness actions. This research aims to design an experimental model to evaluate the effectiveness of audiovisual products on ecological […]
Positive Technology: Developing Positive Affect Through Implementing Positive Psychology in an Interactive Search System Design
There is no doubt that our lives are becoming more digital, reliant on interactive devices or digital services. One of the most significant changes observed in recent years is the large and growing number of people obtaining health information online, making it the most popular medium for obtaining health-related information. Online access to health information […]
Examination of gaze behaviour in social anxiety disorder using a virtual reality eye-tracking paradigm: protocol for a case–control study
Social anxiety disorder (SAD) has an early onset, a high lifetime prevalence, and may be a risk factor for developing other mental disorders. Gaze behaviour is considered an aberrant feature of SAD. Eye-tracking, a novel technology device, enables recording eye movements in real time, making it a direct and objective measure of gaze behaviour. Virtual […]
Effects of pictorial warning labels depicting lesser-known and well-known risks of smoking on viewing patterns, recall, and knowledge of smoking harms
In 2019, the Food and Drug Administration introduced 11 pictorial warning labels (PWLs) for inclusion on cigarette packages, created in compliance with court recommendations and tailored to increase knowledge of smoking harms. Several highlighted lesser-known risks of smoking. No behavioral studies have yet evaluated how risk content in PWLs impacts viewing patterns, recall, and knowledge […]
DUX: a dataset of user interactions and user emotions
User experience evaluation is becoming increasingly important, and so is emotion recognition. Recognizing users’ emotions based on their interactions alone would not be intrusive to users and can be implemented in many applications. This is still an area of active research and requires data containing both the user interactions and the corresponding emotions. Currently, there […]
Objective Measurement of Social Gaze and Smile Behaviors in Children with Suspected Autism Spectrum Disorder During Administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, 2nd Edition
Best practice for the assessment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) symptom severity relies on clinician ratings of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, 2nd Edition (ADOS-2), but the association of these ratings with objective measures of children’s social gaze and smiling is unknown. Sixty-six preschool-age children (49 boys, M = 39.97 months, SD = 10.58) with suspected ASD (61 confirmed ASD) were administered […]
Mobile Eye-Tracking as a Research Method to Explore the D/Deaf Experience at Arts and Cultural Venues
D/deaf activists have consistently lamented their exclusion from the decision-making process by service providers. Accessibility is only effective when designed with contributions from those affected by the perceived or known barrier. This paper redresses the historic absence of the D/deaf paradigm, and recenters the focus to the individual’s perspective of accessibility requirements by developing a […]
Alpha band prefrontal asymmetry does not underlie pain approach-avoidance: Results from two EEG studies approach-avoidance: Results from two EEG studies
Pain research is often focused on escape from pain or approach of relief, yet individuals with chronic pain make complex choices to face their pain to satiate other drives (approach-avoidance conflicts). An abundance of research has indicated that prefrontal alpha band asymmetry (PFA) underlies approach-avoidance in general, but there is limited information about whether PFA […]
