  • Can episodic future thinking affect food choices?

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed14/07/2020Department of Agricultural Economics, Texas A&M University + 3

    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 […]

  • Rational, emotional, and attentional models for recommender systems


    This work analyses the decision‐making process underlying choice behaviour. First, neural and gaze activity were recorded experimentally from different subjects performing a choice task in a Web Interface. Second, choice models and ensembles were fitted using rational, emotional, and attentional features. The model’s predictions were evaluated in terms of their accuracy and rankings were made […]

  • Dermal Fat Grafting to Reconstruct the Parotidectomy Defect Normalizes Facial Attention

    GatedPeer-Reviewed13/07/2020Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic + 2

    Abstract Objectives/Hypothesis:Use validated eye‐tracking technology to objectively measure 1) the attentional distraction of facial contour defects after superficial and total parotidectomy and 2) changes in attentional distraction with abdominal dermal fat graft reconstruction. A Tobii Pro X3 eye-tracking camera system (120 Hz) and iMotions Biometric Research Platform software version 7.1.14670.18 were used to objectively measure how participants […]

  • The heterogeneous processes of cheating: Attention evidence from two eye tracking experiments

    GatedPeer-Reviewed10/07/2020Consumer Insights, Danish Competition and Consumer Authority + 3

    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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Performance Estimation using Deep Learning Based Facial Expression Analysis

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed09/07/2020

    Transactions of the Korean Nuclear Society Virtual Spring Meeting July 9-10, 2020 Scientists now widely accept that it is important for nuclear accident analysis to consider human error in addition to the failure of safety device. Investigating human factors in nuclear accidents is a continuing concern within the field of nuclear safety and human engineering. […]

  • 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 […]

  • A framework for studying design thinking through measuring designers’ minds, bodies and brains


    Abstract: This paper presents a framework for studying design thinking. Three paradigmatic approaches are described to measure design cognitive processes: design cognition, design physiology and design neurocognition. Specific tools and methods serve each paradigmatic approach. Design cognition is explored through protocol analysis, black-box experiments or surveys and interviews. Design physiology is measured with eye-tracking, electrodermal […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
