Right cerebral hemispheric lateralization for spatial
perception has been reported by using visual and tactile
spatial tasks in brain-damaged patients, split-brain
patients, and normal subjects. The main purpose of the
present study was to investigate whether or not kinesthetic
spatial perception was dominantly processed with the right
cerebral hemisphere as...
Tightness-looseness (TL) is a cultural construct that measures the level of social norms present in a community, and the level of scrutiny of deviance from these norms. This construct offers a unique foundation for investigating how norms influence behavioral processes. Research in TL is relatively young, creating a frontier of...
This study examined the possible relationship that perception
of parents has in determining the self-concept of
the adult offspring. The literature search revealed that there
has been a lack of studies regarding the adult offspring's
perception of parents. Furthermore, until this study, no
instrument that measures the adult offspring's perception...
Potential water scarcity and drought conditions are predicted in and around Eugene, Oregon due to decreased snowpack and subsequent decreased snowmelt in the Western Cascade Mountains. This phenomenon was triggered by a long-term trend of warmer winters scientifically linked to global climate change patterns (Dalton et al. 2013). Numerous stakeholders,...
The principle purpose of this study was to determine
the effectiveness of human relations-sensitivity training on
the self concept of low income high school students. The
sample group consisted of 47 low income high school students
attending the 1978 Summer Upward Bound program at Oregon
State University. Participants were randomly...
The way in which subjects of different ages copy a complex design
gives an indication of the relative levels of visual perception and
the related developmental trend of overall cognitive development and
left-right hemispheric functioning. The purpose of this study was to
investigate the impact of severe to profound hearing...
Wood remains the most popular material for deck construction. For centuries,
consumers have chosen wood because of its desirable qualities and aesthetics. In recent
years, wood plastic composites (WPC's) have seen rising demand as alternatives to
wood decks, despite a large price premium. In addition, the removal of CCA treated...
There is consensus among researchers that some form of hemispheric lateralization exists when perceiving emotions. However, conclusions regarding the exact organization have been inconsistent with some studies supporting an overall right hemisphere lateralization and others suggesting differential lateralization for positively and negatively valenced emotions. The main objective of this study...
The purpose of the present study was to determine consumer perceptions of apparel products in Internet shopping. According to the existing literature, four categories of perceptions play primary roles for apparel shopping consumer decisions: apparel appearance, apparel comfort, fabric characteristics, and apparel fit. The present study aimed to observe how...
This investigation was a two stage study performed in two urban/
rural communities in Washington State. Stage I was an effort to replicate a study performed in an eastern Virginia school district whereby
results were obtained demonstrating that 9th graders and black students
identified teacher warmth behaviors as being important...
