The Psychology of Time: A View Backward and Forward

Citation:
Hancock, P.A., & Block, R.A. (2012). The psychology of time: A view backward and forward. American Journal of Psychology, 125(3), 267-274.

Abstract:
We selectively reviewed the progress of research on the psychology of time during the past 125 years, starting with the publication of the first English-language psychological journal, The American Journal of Psychology.


The Impact of Emotions and Predominant Emotion Regulation Technique on Driving Performance

Citation:
Hancock, G.M., Hancock, P.A., & Janelle, C.M. (2012). The impact of emotions and predominant emotion regulation technique on driving performance. Work: Journal of Prevention, Assessment, and Rehabilitation, 41, 5882-5885.

Abstract:
Emotion-provoking stimuli about on modern roadways. Driving measures, of both longitudinal and lateral control of the vehicle, have been shown to vary based on affective influences.


Design Considerations to Improve Cognitive Ergonomic Issues of Unmanned Vehicle Interfaces Utilizing Video Game Controllers

Citation:
Oppold, P., Rupp, M., Mouloua, M., Hancock, P.A., & Martin, K. (2012). Design considerations to improve cognitive ergonomic issues of unmanned vehicle interfaces utilizing video game controllers. Work: Journal of Prevention, Assessment, and Rehabilitation, 41, 5609-5611

Abstract:
Unmanned (UAVs, UCAVs, and UGVs) systems still have major human factors and ergonomic challenges related to the effective design of their control interface systems, crucial to their efficient operation, maintenance, and safety.


Assisted Entry Mitigates Text Messaging-Based Driving Detriment

Citation:
Sawyer, B.D., & Hancock, P.A. (2012). Assisted entry mitigates text messaging-based driving detriment. Work: Journal of Prevention, Assessment, and Rehabilitation, 41, 4279-4282.

Abstract:
Previous research using cell phones indicates that manual manipulation is not a principal component of text messaging relating driving detriment.


The Effect of In-Vehicle Warning Systems on Speed Compliance in Work Zones

Citation:
Whitmire, J., Morgan, J.F., Oron-Gilad, T., & Hancock, P.A. (2011). The effect of in-vehicle warning systems on speed compliance in work zones. Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour, 14(5), 331-340.

Abstract:
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of augmented in-vehicle information on driver behavior in work zones.


Noise And Human Performance: A Meta-Analytic Synthesis

Citation:
Szalma, J.L., & Hancock, P.A. (2011). Noise and human performance: A meta-analytic synthesis. Psychological Bulletin, 137(4), 682-707.

Abstract:
Noise is a pervasive and influential source of stress. Whether through the acute effects of impulse noise or the chronic influence of prolonged exposure, the challenge of noise confronts many who must accomplish vital performance duties in its presence.


The Abbreviated Vigilance Task and Cerebral Hemodynamics

Citation:
Helton, D., Hollander, T., Warm, J.S., Tripp, L.D., Parsons, K., Matthews, G., Dember, W.N., Parasuraman, R., & Hancock, P.A. (2007). The abbreviated vigilance task and cerebral hemodynamics. Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, 29(5), 545-552.

Abstract:
Transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) and transcranial cerebral oximetry (TCCO) measures of cerebral blood flow velocity and oxygenation levels were collected during an abbreviated 12-min vigilance task.
