    • Does more attention improve lane-keeping performance? 

      Choi, William (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      The effect of cognitive load on lane-keeping is inconsistent and unclear. The lateral prioritization hypothesis proposes that drivers prioritize lane-keeping when cognitively distracted; In contrast, the automatic steering ...
    • Effects of ethnicity on hearing screening failure rates in a newborn, well baby clinic 

      McKeown, Ali N.; Fowler, Stephanie (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      Researchers have reported a higher prevalence of hearing loss among Hispanic school-aged children than among children of other ethnicities. The purpose of this study is to measure if a higher risk of hearing loss is ...
    • Evaluating nanosafety of nanomaterials by in-vitro cytotoxicity tests on fibroblast cells 

      Srikanth, Madhulika (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      In recent years, the use of nanomaterials has increased exponentially. In spite of the extensive research in this field, some areas are not completely understood, one of them being nanosafety. Because of their size and ...
    • Mutual interference of driving and texting performance 

      Ellis, Jake; Turner, Colton; Turner, Kirsten (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      Texting while driving is a disturbingly common habit; however, the impact of texting on driving performance and effective approaches to counteract its risks are still not well understood. This study utilizes the Lane ...
    • Numerical analysis of blood flow in the human aorta and bypass grafts 

      Kok, Foo (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      Blood flow is complex due to the presence of curves, multiple branches, non-Newtonian flow, and pulsating effect. Even when an individual receives a bypass, which saves the patient, several years later a new bypass may ...
    • Understanding speech in noisy conditions 

      Jansen, Samantha D. (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
      When an environment is noisy, vision and audition cooperate to improve the ability to understand spoken communication. In fact, researchers have demonstrated that simulated cataracts can worsen the ability to understand ...
