Introduction: he main purpose of this study was to investigate the overall relation between the mean (at the nomothetic or group level) subjective valence and arousal ratings for odors. Although well established in other sensory modalities (e.g., visual, auditory, gustatory, tactile), this relation has not previously been investigated for odors...

The brain must interpret sensory input from diverse receptor systems to estimate object properties. Much has been learned about the brain mechanisms behind these processes in vision, but our understanding of haptic perception remains less clear. Here we examined haptic judgments of object size, which require integrating multiple cutaneous and...

There is a principal need for more precise methodology with regard to the determination of occupational dermal exposure. The goal of the Systematic analysis of Dermal Exposure to hazardous chemical Agents at the workplace project was therefore to generate scientific knowledge to improve and standardize measurement methods for dermal exposure to...

Implicit approach-avoidance tendencies can be measured by the approach-avoidance task (AAT). The emergence of mobile variants of the AAT enable its use for both in-the-lab and in-the-field experiments. Within the food domain, use of the AAT is concentrated in research on eating disorders or healthy eating and is seldom used as an implicit...

In this study, the impact of a steel spherical projectile on an alumina ceramic is considered. New experimental and numerical results are presented and analysed. Numerical results are obtained using the Finite Element Method and the upgraded viscosity regularized Johnson-Holmquist-2 constitutive model to describe the ceramic material behaviour....

The release of flammable gases inside a traffic tunnel can result in a hazardous atmosphere, potentially leading to explosions. The use of mechanized ventilation and water mist systems for fire protection, could improve the safety of road tunnels in case of accidents or fires by mitigating the explosive area of the released gas. The effects of...

Background and objectives Adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are of particular relevance given their potential short-term or long-term health consequences. This study evaluates recommendations and policies regarding access to care in this area in 31 European countries (European Union (EU) plus Iceland, Norway and...

Design of experiments is an effective, generic methodology for problem solving as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. The most commonly used experimental designs are two-level fractional factorial designs. In recent years, nonregular fractional factorial two-level experimental designs have gained much...

BACKGROUND: Work stress is an important problem among employees in education in the Netherlands. The present study aims to investigate the effects of a participatory organizational level work stress prevention approach to reduce (quantitative) job demands, increase resources (i.e. autonomy, supervisor and coworker support) and to reduce work...

Background: The maternity care system in the Netherlands is well known for its support of community-based midwifery. However, regular midwifery practices typically do not offer caseload midwifery care - one-to-one continuity of care throughout pregnancy and birth. Because we know very little about the outcomes for women receiving caseload care...

BACKGROUND: Parallel intervention studies involving volunteers usually require a procedure to allocate the subjects to study-arms. Statistical models to evaluate the different outcomes of the study-arms will include study-arm as a factor along with any covariate that might affect the results. To ensure that the effects of the covariates are...

In public health initiatives, generic nutrition advice (GNA) from national guidelines has a limited effect on food-intake improvement. Personalized nutrition advice (PNA) may enable dietary behavior change. A monocentric, randomized, parallel, controlled clinical trial was performed in males (n = 55) and females (n = 100) aged 25 to 70 years....

With omnidirectional videos, the viewer is able to direct her Field-of-View (FoV) to any part of the scene while watching the content. This is achieved by rendering the 360 video content on the inside of a (conceptual) sphere in which the viewer is typically placed at the center. This is in contrast with traditional video that is rendered on a...

The purpose of this long-term experiment was on gaining more insights into the environmental behaviour of veterinary antibiotics in the subsurface after application with manure. Therefore, manure spiked with a bromide tracer and eight antibiotics (enrofloxacin, lincomycin, sulfadiazine, sulfamethazine, tetracycline, tiamulin, tilmicosin and...

Robust recommendations for healthy diets and nutrition require careful synthesis of available evidence. Given the increasing volume of research articles generated, the retrieval and synthesis of evidence are increasingly becoming laborious and time-consuming. Information technology could help to reduce workload for humans. To guide supervised...

In military operations signature reduction techniques such as camouflage nets, low-emissive paints, and camouflage patterns are typically deployed to optimize the survivability of high value assets by minimizing their detectability. Various methods have been developed to assess the effectiveness of these camouflage measures. There are three main...

Young children rely on their parents with respect to oral health routines. However, parental knowledge on this topic is often insufficient. Well-child care may be an excellent route to reach parents because almost all of them attend. To evaluate the effectiveness of an 8.5 min web-based film about oral health, provided by well-child care, a non...

This experimental study considers load sequence effects in fatigue crack growth in coupon specimens and in element specimens. The coupon specimens were standard edge crack configurations cyclically loaded under four point bending on base metal and welds, whereas the element specimens were full-scale axially loaded tubular joints. Whereas load...
