Serifs have been attached to alphabet letters since Roman times. As of late, their effect on reading legibility has become a source of contention. The purpose of this study was to find which was more legible, words in serif font or words in sans serif font. Legibility was defined as the distance at ...

Geometrical constraints limit how much information can be received and emitted along real pathways across the boundary of any processor. Applied to central nervous systems this imposes a seemingly impassable bottleneck to the evolution of large brains. A small brain could never access enough informa...

Physiological mechanisms and musical experience work together to shape consonance and dissonance perceptions. Previous studies using evoked response potentials and magnetic resonance images have found physiological correlates for the perception of consonance and dissonance. The present study tested ...

This study examined the well-being of midand later-life mothers of developmentally disabled (DD) children. Mothers of DD children (n = 33) and mothers in a comparison group (n = 27) responded to a series of quantitative measures of well-being and open-ended questions. In general, quantitative result...

We addressed how family factors influenced the future housing preferences of seniors. A total of 100 adults ranging in age from 65 to 98 participated in face-to-face interviews. The vast majority of the respondents had no plans to move, and most wanted to remain living in close proximity to family. ...

There is little systematic, valid, quantitative data on the legibility of colored graphics. Most studies based on reading speed found that hue had no effect because they were insensitive to hue information conveyed by slow conducting parvo-cellular pathways. Measuring legibility by the number of v...

Researchers are beginning to examine issues of age, gender, & abuse, but empirical data is lacking. The purpose of this exploratory study was to identify contextual variables, with a particular focus on gender, that may be related to the abuse of older adults. Abuse cases, as described by 121 pr...

Information about letters and the physical structure of language printed in Roman characters was given to children beginning to read. Experimental investigations coupled 3 alternative graphic modes of printing upper- and lower-case letters with an instructional intervention termed "Alpha-Beta" that ...
