EDA-BASED ESTIMATION OF VISUAL ATTENTION BY OBSERVATION OF EYE BLINK FREQUENCY

This paper describes the relationship between visual attention and eye blink frequency. In an experiment, we prompted the activation of a subject’s visual attention and examined the influence of visual attention (as measured using electrodermal activity (EDA), which is meaningfully correlated with visual attention) on the subject’s eye blink frequency. Experimental results show that engagement of visual attention decreased eye blink frequency and that when visual attention was not activated

Putative shared mechanisms in autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a systematic review of the role of oxidative stress

INTRODUCTION Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a heterogeneous group of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impairments in communication and in reciprocal social interaction along with restrictive and repetitive behaviours (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Questions regarding the etiopathological mechanism of this complex disorder remain unanswered (Lai et al., 2014; Happe et al., 2006; Antshel and Russo, 2019). Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a frequent

A multicenter, randomized, controlled study of Training Executive, Attention, and Motor Skills (TEAMS) in Danish preschool children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Rationale and description of the intervention and study protocol

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a highly prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder that is often detected during the preschool years. Neuroimaging data indicate that children with ADHD have brains that are characterized by growth and functional anomalies. Data suggest that the diminution of ADHD symptoms is correlated with improved neural functioning and growth. On the basis of these findings, interventions that target neural growth, which indicates neural development, can

Top-down and bottom-up competition in visual stimuli processing

Limited attention capacity results that not all the stimuli present in the visual field are equally processed. While processing of salient stimuli is automatically boosted by bottom-up attention, processing of task-relevant stimuli can be boosted volitionally by top-down attention. Usually, both top-down and bottom-up influences are present simultaneously, which creates a competition between these two types of attention. We examined this competition using both behavioral and

ELECTRODERMAL ACTIVITY-BASED FEASIBILITY STUDY ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ATTENTION AND BLINKING

Various factors are believed to cause blinking. One of these factors is attention. However, the relationship between blinking and attention has not yet been elucidated. In this study, we focus on electrodermal activity (EDA) to demonstrate this relationship. EDA is an electrical phenomenon involving the glandular releasing of sweat that is caused by mental excitement or strain. We employ EDA to quantify attention as a means to elucidate the blinking–attention relationship. We conduct an

Feasibility Study on Estimating Visual Attention using Electrodermal Activity

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) refers to change in the electrical properties of skin during mental exertion caused by tension and agitation. In recent studies, it has been revealed that there is an overlap between the brain activation area where emotion occurs and the brain activation area responsible for attentiveness. Consequently, in this paper we test our hypothesis that, given these findings, visual attention can be estimated via EDA. The results of experiments conducted verify that EDA can

Processing auditory events without an explicit need of attention has a substantial role for the prediction of deviant events (Seppänen et al., 2012). Indeed, Arnal and Giraud (2012) proposed that direct access to probabilities of sensory events is not necessary for successful task performance. Previous work shows a reduction

An additional ultrasonographic sign of Hashimoto’s lymphocytic thyroiditis in children

Methods:A total of 98 children (mean age 12.7 years, range 7–17 years) were selected from the registry of the endocrinology outpatient department. All subjects met the diagnostic criteria for HLT. All children underwent a prospective thyroid ultrasound examination with special attention paid to the presence of lymph nodes adjacent to the thyroid gland. In order to form a control group, we analyzed 102 healthy volunteers and 94 children with cervical lymphadenopathy, age- and sex-matched with

Postembryonic Ventral Nerve Cord Development and Gonad Migration in Steinernema carpocapsae

Steinernema carpocapsae is an entomopathogenic nematode widely studied for its properties as a biocontrol agent in insect pest management and as a model for understanding bacterial symbioses. Less attention has been given to the development of specific anatomical structures within S. carpocapsae. A better understanding of entomopathogenic nematode development and anatomy may lead to improved biocontrol efficacy. We recently demonstrated that the neuroanatomy of S. carpocapsae IJs differs from

The data indicated that air might be an alternative way for the transmission of A. baumannii. Hospitals should pay more attention to this route, and design new measures accordingly.

Progress in the laboratory medicine, in which automatic or semi-automatic systems identify the staphylococci species, revealed a phenomenon of spreading of the coagulase positive staphylococci to new niches and hosts, as they are being isolated from human clinical materials with increasing frequency. As a result, many reaserchers and laboratories have turned their attention to the phenomenon, which caused an inflow of new data on these species. An

BCP is a plant-derived natural product, which could act as an alternative antibacterial agent or adjuvant in combating antibiotic resistance. A new strategy such as combinatorial treatment using natural compound and antibiotic, disruptive metals or nanotechnologies has recently gained much attention in tackling antimicrobial resistance, especially in multi-resistant strains of bacteria (Kwiatkowski et al. 2017

When the entire antioxidant defense system cannot protect all biological macromolecules from the effects of oxidative damage, it is necessary to increase the defense capacity of the antioxidant system in order to protect human health (Wang et al. 2017). In recent years, LAB have received increasing attention because of their long history of safe use and their potential health benefits, such as improving
