Background: There is a growing interest in nomophobia, which is defined as the fear of being out of cellular phone contact, or "feelings of discomfort or anxiety experienced by individuals when they are unable to use their mobile phones or utilize the affordances these devices provide". However, only limited research can be found in terms of its determinants at present. Contemporary literature suggests that the relationships among attachment styles, mindfulness, and nomophobia have not been investigated.

Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices (CIED) are gaining popularity in treating patients with heart disease. Remote monitoring through care management systems enables continuous surveillance of such patients by checking device functions and clinical events. These care management systems include decision support capabilities based on clinical guidelines. Data input to such systems are from different information sources including medical devices and Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Although evidence-...
Feedback controlled electrical nerve stimulation: A computer simulation
Doruk, R. Ozgur (Elsevier BV, 2010-07-01)
The role of repetitive firing in neurophysiologic or neuropsychiatric disorders, such as Parkinson, epilepsy and bipolar type disorders, has always been a topic of medical research as therapies target either the cease of firing or a decrease in its frequency. In electrotherapy, one of the mechanisms to achieve the purpose in point is to apply a low density electric current to the nervous system. In this study, a computer simulation is provided of a treatment in which the stimulation current is computed by n...

An Intrusion Detection System classifies activities at an unwanted intention and can log or prevent activities that are marked as intrusions. Intrusions occur when malicious activity and unwanted behaviour gain access to or affect the usability of a computer resource. During the last years, anomaly discovery has attracted the attention of many researchers to overcome the disadvantage of signature-based IDSs in discovering novel attacks, and KDDCUP'99 is the mostly widely used data set for the evaluation of ...
Preliminary results of a novel enhancement method for high-frequency hearing loss
Arioz, Umut; Arda, Kemal; Tuncel, Umit (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-01)
In this study, a software program was developed for high-frequency hearing loss subjects that includes a detailed audiogram and novel enhancement methods. The software performs enhancements of the audibility of high-frequency sounds according to the subject's detailed 31-point audiogram. This provides subject-specific gains in the entire frequency spectrum, and especially for high frequencies, of sounds. Amplification, compression, and transposition are the three main processing methods used to obtain the d...
The role of beliefs in the use of hands-free and handheld mobile phones while driving
Sullman, Mark J. M.; Przepiorka, Aneta M.; Prat, Francesc; Blachnio, Agata P. (Elsevier BV, 2018-06-01)
Objective: This study investigated the frequency of mobile phones use while driving by mode (handheld vs. hands-free users) and its relationship with three types of beliefs (behavioural, normative and control).
