    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Flotation-REST; Sensory isolation; Sensory deprivation; Anxiety; Generalized anxiety disorder; Complementary and alternative medicine; Flyt-REST; sinnes-isolation; sensorisk deprivation; generaliserat ångest syndrom; komplementär och alternativ medicin; Psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Anxiety and the use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), such as flotation-REST, have increased markedly during the last decades. Anxiety is reportedly a prevalent incentive for the use of CAMs, despite the present low state of knowledge about their safety and efficacy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multi-sensory cues in interplay and congruency in a retail store context : Consumer emotions and purchase behaviors

    Author : Miralem Helmefalk; Magnus Söderlund; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Atmospherics; Congruency; Emotions; Multi-Sensory; Purchase behaviors; Sensory cues; Sensory interplay; Sensory marketing; Marketing; Marknadsföring;

    Abstract : While research has shown the positive impact of sensory cues and cue- congruency on emotion and behavior in retail store atmospheres, these cues have primarily been investigated in isolation or in pairs. Consequently, little is known on how multi-sensory cues in interplay impact on consumer emotions and purchase behaviors. READ MORE
