186 Examining driver's eye-movements and cognitive workload: an exploratory study using electrooculographyPrevious research has suggested a link between cognitive workload and gaze concentration. As mental workload increases, humans begin to stare straight ahead. If drivers' scanning behaviors are attenuated as a result of secondary in-vehicle tasks, then their situation awareness and their ability to r...Cognitive workload; Distracted driving; Electrooculography (EOG); Eye movements; Multitasking; Visual scanning2014-12
187 Examining factors influencing how individuals decide whether or not a behavior counts as "having sex"This study examined how people define having sex as a function of the specific behaviors (e.g., penetrative vs. nonpenetrative acts; whether or not orgasm occurs) and the context in which the behaviors occur (i.e., engaged in by self vs. other). Utilizing a more complex and sensitive research design...definition; having sex; intimate behaviors; orgasm; sex; Behavioral psychology2013-05
188 Examining priority of a risk as a predictor of photorotective adherence among individuals at high familial risk for melanoma following genetic testingAmong individuals at high risk of developing melanoma due to family history or a genetic mutation, 48% do not engage in the recommended photoprotection behaviors that would reduce their risk. Priority of risk has been shown to predict engagement in sun-protection behaviors, but the factors leading t...2018
189 Examining the geographic dimensions of risk perception, communication, and response during the evacuation and return-entry processThe focus of this research is the geographical and temporal dimensions of the evacuation and return-entry process (EREP).
