An electrophysiological examination of intentional and inadvertent sleep onset : the effect of intention on the sleep onset process
(Brock University, 1995-07-09)
The main purpose ofthis study was to examine the effect ofintention on the sleep onset process from an electrophysiological point ofview. To test this, two nap conditions, the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) and the ...
The investigation of edge effects within ragmented forest islands in Short Hills Provincial Park
(Brock University, 1994-10-02)
It has been well documented, within the field of landscape ecology, that terrestrial fragmentation contributes to increased heterogeneity at the landscape level. It has also been observed that elevated areas of edge ...
Predictors of academic achievement and social competence in adolescence : facilitation, inhibition and general cognitive processing /
(Brock University, 1998-05-21)
The relevance of attentional measures to cognitive and social adaptive behaviour was examined in an adolescent sample. Unlike previous research, the influence of both inhibitory and facilitory aspects of attention were ...
