Can episodic future thinking affect food choices?
Episodic future thinking, defined as the ability to project oneself into the future, has proven useful to pre-experience the future consequences of present actions. We investigate how episodic future thinking influences the food choices of normal weight, overweight, and obese individuals. In doing so, we conduct a controlled laboratory experiment in which participants are presented […]
The heterogeneous processes of cheating: Attention evidence from two eye tracking experiments
Dishonesty erodes society. Although much is known about dishonesty, the process leading up to the decision of whether to be honest or dishonest is often assumed to be homogenous and is not well understood. In this paper, we take a more nuanced approach and explore more closely the process of deciding whether to cheat or […]
Facing Driver Frustration: Towards Real-Time In-Vehicle Frustration Estimation Based on Video Streams of the Face
Drivers frequently experience frustration when facing traffic jams, red lights or badly designed in-vehicle interfaces. Frustration can lead to aggressive behaviors and negative influences on user experience. Affect-aware vehicles that recognize the driver’s degree of frustration and, based on this, offer assistance to reduce the frustration or mitigate its negative effects promise remedy. As a […]
IMotions’ Automatic Facial Recognition and Text-Based Content Analysis of Basic Emotions and Empathy in the Application of the Interactive Neurocommunicative Technique LNCBT (Line and Numbered Concordant Basic Text)
This research paper focuses on the effectiveness of the Line Numbered Concordant Basic Text (LNCBT) of Narcotics Anonymous as an interactive neurocommunicative and gamificated technique to generate empathic emotions through its process and application. The LNCBT is studied as an effective educational, neurocommunicational and behavioral change technique for recovery from addictions. Firstly, it was analyzed […]
Modeling the Relationships Between Basic and Achievement Emotions in Computer-Based Learning Environments
Commercial facial affect detection software is typically trained on large databases and achieves high accuracy in detecting basic emotions, but their use in educational settings is unclear. The goal of this research is to determine how basic emotions relate to the achievement emotion states that are more relevant in academic settings. Such relations, if accurate […]
Andante, Allegro o Silenzio: An Examination of Background Music Tempo on Facial Emotions, Electrodermal Responses, and Reading Task Performance
Current literature has established that learner’s emotions are an integral part of the learning experience (Pekrun & Perry, 2014) and have significant effects on learning processes that optimize performance (Cunningham, Dunfield, & Stillman, 2013), and attentional responses (Kärner & Kögler, 2016). This present study examines the psychoemotional and psychophysiological effects that variations in the tempo […]
Factuality Checking in News Headlines with Eye Tracking
We study whether it is possible to infer if a news headline is true or false using only the movement of the human eyes when reading news headlines. Our study with 55 participants who are eye-tracked when reading 108 news headlines (72 true, 36 false) shows that false headlines receive statistically significantly less visual attention […]
Using Eye-Tracking to Understand Human Responses to Traditional Neighborhood Designs
New research in brain and cognitive science is changing how we understand how people perceive and experience the built environment, offering key opportunities for urban planning, urban design, and architecture. Sixty-three college students looked at different scenes of New York City public buildings in a set up with an eye tracker in front of a […]
Eye-Tracking the City: Matching the Design of Streetscapes in High-Rise Environments with Users’ Visual Experiences
Abstract Large cities in the West respond to an ever-increasing shortage of affordable housing by accelerating the process of urban densification. Amsterdam, for instance, aims to increase its housing stock by 10 percent in the next 15 years as its population is expected to grow by 20 percent. As in other cities, it seems inevitable […]
A post-paradigmatic approach to analysing emotions in social life
Scholars studying emotions in social life typically work mono-logically, within a paradigmatic camp, drawing on distinct theories of emotion. In isolation, each offers a singular conceptualisation of emotions in social life. Working multi-logically, in contrast, offers richer, comparative insight into the layered meanings of emotion relevant to a social context. Rather than treating them as […]
