  • Positive Affect Is Associated With Reduced Fixation in a Realistic Medical Simulation

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/02/2017Macquarie University + 3

    Objective: This study extends previous research by exploring the association between mood states (i.e., positive and negative affect) and fixation in practicing anesthetists using a realistic medical simulation. Background: The impact of practitioner emotional states on fixation is a neglected area of research. Emerging evidence is demonstrating the role of positive affect in facilitating problem solving and […]

  • Maternal gaze to the infant face: Effects of infant age and facial configuration during mother-infant engagement in the first nine weeks

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/02/2017University of Reading + 5

    Background: Adult gaze plays an important role in early infant development, and infants are highly sensitive to its presence and direction. Little is known, however, about how adults look at infants while interacting with them. Using eye-tracking technology, this study investigated maternal gaze during naturalistic interactions, and how it was influenced by infant age, focusing on […]

  • Looking at paintings in the Vincent Van Gogh Museum: Eye movement patterns of children and adults

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed21/06/2017Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

    In the present study, we examined the eye movement behaviour of children and adults looking at five Van Gogh paintings in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. The goal of the study was to determine the role of top-down and bottom-up attentional processes in the first stages of participants’ aesthetic experience. Bottom-up processes were quantified by […]

  • Does the presence of a mannequin head change shopping behavior?

    GatedPeer-Reviewed02/02/2016Stockholm School of Economics + 2

    Mannequins are ubiquitous; this research investigates a specific element of mannequin style, namely, the presence or absence of a humanized head. Study 1 demonstrates that in physical stores, the presence of a humanized head enhances purchase intentions for the merchandise displayed on that mannequin. However, in online stores, mannequin styles with and without humanized heads […]

  • Clinicians’ gaze behaviour in simulated paediatric emergencies

    GatedPeer-Reviewed07/03/2018Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children + 3

    Aim: Differences in the gaze behaviour of experts and novices are described in aviation and surgery. This study sought to describe the gaze behaviour of clinicians from different training backgrounds during a simulated paediatric emergency. Methods: Clinicians from four clinical areas undertook a simulated emergency. Participants wore SMI (SensoMotoric Instruments) eye tracking glasses. We measured the fixation […]

  • The Effects of Self-Control on Subsequent Purchasing Decisions

    Open Access31/07/2016Texas A&M University + 2

    The effect of self-control on individual behavior has long been a subject of debate. The psychology literature has advanced three theories to explain self-control. However, those theories carry contradictory predictions as they were restricted to linear relationships between an initial act of self-control and subsequent self-control ability. This study uses biometric measures collected in a […]

  • Using Eye Tracking to Reveal Responses to the Built Environment and Its Constituents

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed06/11/2023Webster University + 4

    Eye-tracking technology has numerous applications in both commercial and research contexts. The recent introduction of affordable wearable sensors has significantly broadened the scope of potential uses, spanning fields such as computer gaming, education, entertainment, health, neuromarketing, and psychology, among others. Another development is the use of downloadable software, which permits participants to record their responses […]

  • Understanding Learning Engagement with User-Centered Human-Computer Interaction in a Multimodal Online Learning Environment

    Open Access25/10/2023Montana State University

    Multimodal online learning environment improves learning experience through different modalities such as visual, auditory, and kinesthetic interactions. Multimodal learning analytics (MMLA) with multiple biosensors provides a way to overcome the challenge of analyzing the multiple interaction types simultaneously. Galvanic skin response/electrodermal activity (GSR/EDA), eye tracking and facial expression were used to measure the learning interaction […]

  • Self-reported and electroencephalogram responses to evaluate sponsorship congruence efficacy

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/10/2023University of Granada

    Information for measuring the performance of a commercial action is essential for any organization. Sponsorship actions have increased significantly in the last few decades, but academics and practitioners have not yet found a suitable indicator for measuring their performance. This is the first study to propose an objective indicator—frontal alpha asymmetry using an electroencephalogram. Our […]

  • Examining the Impact of Stress and Fear of COVID-19 on Transit Travel

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed01/07/2023Texas A&M University + 2

    The COVID-19 pandemic altered daily life by forcing governments to issue measures for the prevention of the spread of the disease such as stay-at-home orders, requiring face coverings, and maintaining physical distancing, among others. This caused a significant disruption in every aspect of people’s lives. This disruption was prominent in the transportation sector where travel […]
