We examined whether participants who failed to complete a simulated drive because of simulator sickness (dropouts) differed from those who completed the simulation (completers). Thirteen healthy older adult dropouts (mean age = 74.8 yr) and 12 comparable completers were compared on the following variables: on-road driving performance, the Useful Field of View test, the Attention Network Test, and the Trail Making Test Part A. Results showed that completers scored more demerit points during the on-road drive than did dropouts. In addition, only 1 of 13 comparisons based on participants' cognition was statistically significant. These results suggest that in healthy senior drivers, simulator sickness does not prevent examination of those who need it most (i.e., those with the poorest on-road driving performance) and that cognitive differences are not associated with dropping out because of simulator sickness.
We report the synthesis and the magnetic susceptibility of
(pipdH)2Cu1-xZnxBr4, which is a nonmagnetic impurity-doped S=1/2 spin ladder
System. The samples were synthesized from a solution by using a slow
Evaporation method. Samples were confirmed to be in a single phase and to have
The same crystal...
We discuss the repair response of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (B-MSCs) after lung injury and how their function is affected by aging. Our own work has demonstrated a protective role of B-MSCs in several animal models of acute and chronic lung injury. We recently demonstrated the assoc...
We study the equilibrium time correlations for the conserved fields of
Classical anharmonic chains and argue that their dynamic correlator can be
Predicted on the basis of nonlinear fluctuating hydrodynamics. In fact our
Scheme is more general and would cover also other one-dimensional hamiltonian
