In ongoing and consecutive conversations with persons, a social robot has to determine which aspects to remember and how to address them in the conversation. In the health domain, important aspects concern the health-related goals, the experienced progress (expressed sentiment) and the ongoing motivation to pursue them. Despite the progress in...

Humans differ strongly in their willingness to try novel foods. Hesitance to try new foods is referred to as food neophobia. Understanding food neophobia is important, as it can be a significant barrier to adopt a healthy, balanced or plant-based diet. We here use electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings to obtain insight in the early attentional...

An air curtain is a planar turbulent air jet, which is used to separate two zones maintained at different temperatures. One of the aims of using an air curtain in the doorway of a building is to minimise the heat losses from the warm room to the cold environment and thus, to save energy. It is important to know how well an air curtain performs...

Social communication is increasingly performed through video communication (VC) tools such as Teams or Zoom. Although VC is an effective way to maintain relationships remotely, it is still limited in creating a sense of social connectedness since the interaction does not feel as natural as a physical encounter. We evaluated the user experience...

Currently, most videoconferencing technologies do not keep employees sufficiently engaged during business meetings. Recent studies have shown how extended reality (XR) technologies can help in executing remote meetings in new and possibly better ways. One important factor for meetings in e.g. Virtual Reality (VR) is avatar realism, with the...

Proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibits the clearance of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (LDL-C) from plasma by directly binding with the LDL receptor (LDLR) and sending the receptor for lysosomal degradation. As the interaction promotes elevated plasma LDL-C levels, and therefore a predisposition to...

The release of hazardous materials due to transport accidents can have major health consequences for bystanders. The number of casualties will partly be determined by their protective behaviour. This study describes a three-step approach to predict health consequences of protective behaviour (for example, hiding or escaping) of bystanders in the...

Background: Older adults are particularly prone to the development of poor appetite and undernutrition. Possibly, this is partly due to the aged gut microbiota. We aimed to evaluate the gut microbiota in relation to both poor appetite and undernutrition in community-dwelling older adults. Furthermore, we studied the causal effects of the...

Social distancing measures to lower the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission limit seating capacity in and constrain restaurants’ ability to operate in an economically sustainable way. Experiments have been conducted in a real-size mock-up of a restaurant, using different table setting and configurations of the ventilation system. The study has...

How we perceive the world is not solely determined by what we sense at a given moment in time, but also by what we processed recently. Here we investigated whether such serial dependencies for emotional stimuli transfer from one modality to another. Participants were presented a random sequence of emotional sounds and images and instructed to...

We recently developed the Holistic Social Presence Questionnaire (HSPQ) to measure the quality of mediated social communication experiences. Initial research confirmed the content and face validity of the HSPQ. This study investigates the convergent validity and sensitivity of the HSPQ. Participants completed a decision-making task in groups,...

Telemeetings such as audiovisual conferences or virtual meetings play an increasingly important role in our professional and private lives. For that reason, system developers and service providers will strive for an optimal experience for the user, while at the same time optimizing technical and financial resources. This leads to the discipline...

Comparisons of emerging carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies with equivalent incumbent technologies are necessary to support technology developers and to help policy-makers design appropriate long-term incentives to mitigate climate change through the deployment of CCU. In particular, early-stage CCU technologies must prove their...

The core microbiome, which refers to a set of consistent microbial features across populations, is of major interest in microbiome research and has been addressed by numerous studies. Understanding the core microbiome can help identify elements that lead to dysbiosis, and lead to treatments for microbiome-related health states. However, defining...

Dermal exposure is an important exposure route for occupational exposure and risk assessment. A fluorescence method has been developed to quantify occupational dermal exposure based on a visualization technique, using Tinopal SWN as a fluorescent tracer. The method was developed within the framework of a large experimental study, the SysDEA...

Felitti en collega’s (1998) publiceerden ruim twintig jaar geleden hun inmiddels bekende Amerikaanse ACE-studie waarin een verband werd aangetoond tussen ingrijpende jeugdervaringen – adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) – en problemen met de mentale en fysieke gezondheid in de volwassenheid. Nadien is de ACE-studie in diverse landen...
