The brain is able to determine angular self-motion from visual, vestibular, and kinesthetic information. There is compelling evidence that both humans and non-human primates integrate visual and inertial (i.e., vestibular and kinesthetic) information in a statistically optimal fashion when discriminating heading direction. In the present study,...

The vestibular organ is a sensor that measures angular and linear accelerations with six degrees of freedom (6DF). Complete or partial defects in the vestibular organ results in mild to severe equilibrium problems, such as vertigo, dizziness, oscillopsia, gait unsteadiness nausea and/or vomiting. A good and frequently used measure to quantify...

Stimulation of the tactile sense or the hearing sense can be used to improve a person's health and well-being. For example, to make someone relax, feel better or sleep better. In this position paper, we present the concept of auditory-tactile stimulation for health and well-being. Through carefully selected audio-tactile stimuli a person's...

Het project heeft zich gericht op de vraag hoe je goed onderbouwde user interfaces kunt ontwerpen (voor toegang tot AV-content) voor de VB-doelgroep, waarbij op een systematische manier gebruik gemaakt wordt van kennis van cognitieve functies (zoals geheugen, probleem-oplossen, aandacht, taalbegrip (lezen en luisteren), rekenen, visueel begrip),...

While a BCI usually aims to provide an alternative communication channel for disabled users who have difficulties to move or to speak, we focused on BCIs as a way to retrieve and use information about an individual’s cognitive or affective state without requiring any effort or intention of the user to convey this information. Providing only an...

We here introduce a new experimental paradigm to induce mental stress in a quick and easy way while adhering to ethical standards and controlling for potential confounds resulting from sensory input, body movements and behavior of people involved in conducting the experiment. In our Sing-a-Song Stress Test, participants are presented with...

Human performance has been shown to be negatively correlated with seasickness. By reducing crew, ship size, and hence redundancy, sickness induced risks increase exponentially. Although medication is effective, it also causes drowsiness. Non-pharmacological countermeasures are scarce, the most popular one being to look at the horizon. We...

The ability to continuously monitor workload in a real-world environment would have important implications for the offline design of human machine interfaces as well as the real-time online improvement of interaction between humans and machines. The present study explored the usefulness of combining electroencephalography (EEG) with the newer...

Er bestaat al jaren behoefte aan meer inzicht in de slaapverstoring die omwonenden ondervinden van impulsachtige geluiden ten gevolge van containeroverslag in havengebieden en het laden en lossen in winkelcentra. Ter bepaling van de kans op ontwaakreacties als functie van het geluidniveau werden 22 proefpersonen gedurende 15 nachten thuis in hun...

Children with a chronic disease like diabetes need to learn how to self manage their disease. Knowledge about their condition is indispensable to reach this goal. Within the European project ALIZ-E a robot companion is being developed that should, among others attributes, have the capability to educate children. In this paper, a virtual agent on...

Brain-computer interaction has already moved from assistive care to applications such as gaming. Improvements in usability, hardware, signal processing, and system integration should yield applications in other nonmedical areas.

Previous studies indicate that both EEG spectral power (in particular the alpha and theta band) and ERPs (in particular the P300) can be used as a measure of mental work or memory load. We compare their ability to estimate workload level in a well-controlled task. In addition, we combine both types of measures in a single classification model to...

Steeds meer ondernemers merken dat relatief kleine investeringen in slimmer werken grote gevolgen kunnen hebben, zoals stijgende omzetten, kortere doorlooptijden, gemotiveerd personeel, hogere productiviteit. Slimmer organiseren, slimmer samenwerken en slimmer de talenten van je medewerkers benutten, levert een directe bijdrage aan de...

Subjective vertical (SV) conflict theory postulates that motion sickness is elicited in all situations that lead to a difference between the sensed and subjective verticals. The sensed vertical is Earth's gravity as perceived by human sense modalities; the subjective vertical is also Earth's gravity, but in accordance with the expectations of...

Artificial companion agents have the potential to combine novel means for effective health communication with young patients support and entertainment. However, the theory and practice of long-term child-robot interaction is currently an underdeveloped area of research. This paper introduces an approach that integrates multiple functional...
