Human behaviour during a large-scale hazardous material release can make the difference between life, serious injury and death.

The group of NLW that arguably offers the largest amount of useful applications are based on high power electromagnetic millimetre wave technology. This group is often referred to as ‘Active Denial Systems’ (ADS), since they are primarily aimed at deterring and dispersing people out of an area. The effect mechanism involves radiating millimetre...

Driver distraction and mental workload are two constructs that are closely related, but which are affected by different aspects of the driving situation and may also have different effects on driving performance. This chapter introduces the concept of latent driver distraction, a form of driver distraction that does not materialise in measurably...

The incidence of soccer (football) injuries is among the highest in sports. Despite this high rate, insufficient evidence is available on the efficacy of preventive training programmes on injury incidence. Objective To systematically study the evidence on preventive exercise-based training programmes to reduce the incidence of injuries in soccer...

Background/Aims:Brown adipose tissue (BAT) dissipates energy stored in triglycerides as heat via the uncoupling protein UCP-1 and is a promising target to combat hyperlipidemia and obesity. BAT is densely innervated by the sympathetic nervous system, which increases BAT differentiation and activity upon cold exposure. Recently, Bone...

Er is een continue behoefte aan transport, maar de capaciteit van het wegennet is beperkt en verkeer brengt risico’s met zich mee. Verkeersmanagement is er op gericht om verplaatsingen van personen en goederen zodanig te verdelen over plaats, tijd en locatie, dat de behoefte aan verplaatsing met zomin mogelijk oponthoud en de grootst mogelijke...
