In this study, we examined the mechanisms that control attention in natural scenes. We asked whether familiarity with the environment makes subjects more sensitive to changes or novel events in the scene. Previous investigation of this issue has been based on viewing 2-D images of simple objects or of natural scenes, a situation that does not accurately reflect the challenges of natural vision. We found that familiarity with the environment significantly increased the time spent fixating regions in the scene where a change had occurred. Together with previous work (Brockmole Henderson, 2005a, 2005b), our results support the hypothesis that we learn the structure of natural scenes over time, and that attention is attracted by deviations from the stored scene representation. Such a mechanism would allow deployment of attention to objects or events that were not explicitly on the current cognitive agenda.

İnce, Mustafa Levent (SAGE Publications, 2008-12-01)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a 12-wk. physical activity intervention, based on conceptual discussions and practices of a social cognitive theory on health-promoting behaviors of 62 university students. The intervention Mainly focused on development of self-regulatory skills, social support, and self-assessment of health-related fitness. The Adolescent Health Promotion Scale and International Physical Activity Questionnaire were given Analysis of self-reports indicated improved nut...
The role of familiarity on change perception
Karacan, Hacer; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2007)
In this study the mechanisms that control attention in natural scenes was examined. It was explored whether familiarity with the environment makes participants more sensitive to changes or novel events in the scene. Previous investigation of this issue has been based on viewing 2D pictures/images of simple objects or of natural scenes, a situation which does not accurately reflect the challenges of natural vision. In order to examine this issue, as well as the differences between 2D and 3D environments, two...
Psychometric Properties of a Turkish Version of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale
Ruganci, R. Neslihan; Gençöz, Tülin (Wiley, 2010-04-01)
This study aimed to examine the psychometric properties of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS; developed by Gratz & Roemer, 2004) in a Turkish sample. For this purpose, first, the factor structure of the scale was examined with a sample of 338 university students, and an identical factor structure with the original scale was obtained with the exclusion of a single item. Following the confirmation of the 6-factor structure of the scale with the current Turkish sample, the whole scale's and it...
Variations of estimated maximal aerobic speed in children soccer players and its associations with the accumulated training load: Comparisons between non, low and high responders

The aim of this study was twofold: (i) to examine the variations of estimated maximal aerobic speed between non, low and high responders and (ii) to analyze the relationships between accumulated training load parameters and variations of maximal aerobic speed in children soccer players. Forty-four male soccer players were assessed three times during the early and mid-season (second to fifth month of the season) and were monitored daily over the period of analysis using the rating of perceived exertion (RPE)...
Mood, Memory, and Motor Performance and the Severity of Tardive Dyskinesia
Gilleard, C. J.; Vaddadi, KS (SAGE Publications, 1986-12)
<jats:p> This study tested the hypothesis that the features of tardive dyskinesia were associated with motor slowing, memory impairment, and depressive apathy all of which are considered to characterize the so-called subcortical dementias. In a sample of 48 psychiatric patients all fulfilling research criteria for tardive dyskinesia and without other signs of organic illness age-independent correlations were observed between severity of orofacial dyskinesia and measures of memory, motor performance and mood...
