  1. 1. Combining cognitive and physical work tasks: Short-term effects on fatigue, stress, performance and recovery

    Author : Susanna Mixter; Svend Erik Mathiassen; David Hallman; Petra Lindfors; Paul Jarle Mork; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical; repetitive; cognitive; mental; load; variation; job rotation; restoration; allostatic load; fysisk; repetitiv; kognitiv; mental; belastning; variation; arbetsrotation; återhämtning; allostatisk belastning; Health-Promoting Work; Hälsofrämjande arbete;

    Abstract : Background: Although combinations of physical and cognitive work tasks occurs in working life (both concurrent and alternating), no one has summarized the research regarding such combinations. Very few studies have investigated the effects of alternating physical and cognitive tasks, which have been suggested as an alternative to classic job rotation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Simulation in university chemistry education : cognitive and affective aspects

    Author : Mikael Winberg; Leif Hedman; Michael Sjöström; Helge Strömdahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Simulation; knowledge accessibility; discourse quality; cognitive load; task design; affective experiences; learning; attitudes; Subject didactics; Ämnesdidaktik;

    Abstract : This thesis undertakes two main tasks; to explore, within the authentic educational context, variables that influence the quality and outcomes of the knowledge-constructing activity during the simulation exercise; and to find appropriate instruments and methods to measure these variables, processes and outcomes. Closed-ended tasks that provided a high degree of structure, i. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shedding light on cognitive control

    Author : Simon Skau; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cognitive Control; fNIRS; mental fatigue; exhaustion disorder; TBI; children; mathematical cognition; proactive cognitive control;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate the ability to adjust cognitive processes and behavior, i.e., cognitive control, and its related functional activity in the cortex. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mind off driving: Effects of cognitive load on driver glance behaviour and response times

    Author : Emma Nilsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; cognitive load; visual behaviour; lead vehicle braking; traffic safety; distraction; response times; driver behaviour; intersections;

    Abstract : Introduction: Safe driving requires drivers to look at relevant information in the traffic environment and react in time in case a critical event arises. Concerns exist that cognitively loading tasks might interfere with drivers’ abilities to do this. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploring Cognitive Spare Capacity : Executive Processing of Degraded Speech

    Author : Sushmit Mishra; Mary Rudner; Stefan Stenfelt; Jerker Rönnberg; Thomas Lunner; Mithell S. Sommers; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Working memory; cognitive spare capacity; updating; inhibition; Arbetsminne; kognitiv reservkapacitet; uppdatering; inhibition;

    Abstract : Cognitive resources, specifically working memory capacity are used for listening to speech, especially in noise. Cognitive resources are limited, and if listeners allocate a greater share of these resources to recovering the input signal in noise, fewer resources are available for interpreting and encoding its linguistic content.
