Some effects of silt turbidity on behavior of juvenile largemouth bass and green sunfish by Norman W Heimstra( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Behavior of juvenile largemouth bass and green sunfish in aquariums was measured under conditions of clear water, 4-6 JTU (Jackson Turbidity Units), and 15-16 JTU for 30 days. The activity of bass was significantly reduced by turbidity; sunfish activity was reduced, but not significantly. Feeding and attack behavior was not influenced. Scraping behavior of both species was higher under turbid conditions. There was evidence that turbidity disturbed normal social hierarchies in green sunfish

The effects of smoking on peripheral movement detection by Craig R Scoughton( Book )

3 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-five male subjects, 15 smokers and 10 nonsmokers, who were screened for visual and physical defects, were tested on an apparatus designed to determine their ability to detect movement in the visual periphery. Analysis of the data revealed no significant differences between smoking and smoking deprived subjects for either illumination condition in regard to the visual field measures. A comparison of smoking and nonsmoking subjects however, showed a significantly larger field for nonsmokers under the low illumination condition condition. For the movement detection task, smoking deprived subjects were significantly better than smoking subjects at detecting and responding to movement in the periphery, particularly when higher speeds of target movement were involved. Analysis of the data for the velocity estimation task revealed that subjects in the smoking deprived condition performed significantly better than subjects in the smoking condition under the low illumination condition. Based on the results of this investigation, it appears that smoking does have an effect on several critical peripheral functions. (Modified author abstract)

The effects of smoking on time estimation performance : Annual report by Steven T Breidenbach( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two investigations were conducted to detemine the effects of nicotine on the processing of visually presented information. In both studies, fifteen chronic smokers were tested under smoking and smoking deprived conditions, and ten nonsmokers were tested as a control group. The results indicated that nicotine had an adverse effect on the ability of subjects to perform this task, but only under certain extreme conditions of object speed and viewing time. These results were compared to previous research where detrimental nicotine effects were found over a wide range of speed and concealment values when a similar task was presented peripherally. Subjects were required to estimate the velocity of a moving target and fire ahead of it to compensate for the time lag in a projectile trajectory. Smoking and smoking deprived subjects differed only under certain speed and exposure time conditions, but in this case, the smokers actually performed better than the deprived smokers. It was suggested that the higher level of information processing involved in this task was not adversely affected by nicotine

An Evaluation of the Training of a Critical Driving Skill by Means of a Simulation Technique. Final Report by Norman W Heimstra( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To help evaluate driver education, 50 individuals were tested and trained by means of a simulation technique to determine if drivers could be taught to make accurate last minute passing judgments, and if knowledge of direction and magnitude of error on individual trials would have any influence on this training. In a projection room, each subject watched as the camera car he was supposedly driving actually passed a lead car. Following this sequence each subject was administered a pretest, involving an oncoming scene film during which the subject was to press a switch when he believed the last possible moment for passing had arrived. Then in followup film sessions one group of subjects received instant feedback on each performance while a second group did not. Analysis of the data showed that there was a significant correlation (.57) between the on-the-road and in the lab performance on this type of task. It was also found that subjects receiving the feedback improved significantly in a posttest measure while the other group failed to improve in accuracy of passing judgment. (Author)
