    • The Effect Of a Minor Stressor with Varying Auditory Stimuli on Physiological Response 

      Johns, Chris; Romanoski, Josh; Dierking, Anna; Pfeifer, Courtney; Krouse, Adam (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      College students experience high levels of stress relating to classes, exams, and personal conflicts. Persistent high levels of stress can lead to adverse health outcomes such as mental illness or digestive system ...
    • The Effect of a Mismatched Audiovisual Stimulus on Heart Rate, Respiration Rate, Skin Conductance, and Beta Waves 

      Thellman, Connor; Anhalt, Sydney; Tran, Hao; Imhoff, Hailey; Rosch, Jackie; Sasaki, Asami (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      Previous research has shown that sensory stimuli can induce a stress response. This response occurs as a result of a sympathetic response involving the hormones epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol. Sensory stimuli ...
    • Effects of a Visual Distraction on Physiological Measures and Concentration 

      Balas, Johanna; Docter, John; Kinney, Chase; Wegener, Madeline; Singh, Vishy; Hetzel, Erika (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      Multitasking has become a standard practice among college students. Technology plays an increasing role in modern multitasking as college students commonly use computers and phones while engaging in other activities. The ...

    • Effects of an Auditory Stimulus on the Nervous System and Selective Attention 

      Kefer, Samuel; Daneshgar, Alex; Katib, Nora; Razdolsky, Marjey; Zaifman, Julie (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      Several theories have been proposed in an attempt to explain human attention, all accentuating the complexity in processing information. More specifically, the concept of inattentional blindness depicts how the limited ...
    • Effects of Auditory Stimuli on Blood Pressure, Respiration Rate, and Heart Rate Changes While Watching a Suspenseful Video 

      Aly, Besma; Eversten, Forrester; Omoba, Oreoluwa; Schaller, Rachel; Terlap, Emily (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      The purpose of this study was to test the effect of auditory and visual stimuli on subjects’ physiological response. The auditory stimuli included white noise, calming music, and music anticipated to induce stress, which ...
    • Effects of Competition on Physiological Measures 

      Brzeski, Jenna; Schaefer, Emily; Kowalczyk, Tyler; Johnson, Alex; Borkovec, McKenzie (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017-05-02)
      Human-beings face aspects of interpersonal competition in many areas of life. Whether it be competing with other candidates for a job position, a slot at the school of your dreams, or even competing for the last cookie ...
    • The Effects of Music Genre on Physiological Measures of Stress from Arithmetic Testing 

      Kazen, Lexi; Akbulut, Gulnihal; Wagaman, Bradley; Choudhury, Emidur; Pass, Scott; Zamzow, Elise (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      Stress is a common and unavoidable phenomenon in humans due to the numerous pressures and obligations that are experienced on a regular basis. Although stress is a necessary physiological mechanism, excess stress can ...
    • Effects of Physiological Stress Response on Short-Term Memory Recall 

      Holtz, Lauren; Martinez, Martin; Paton, Karly; Rosich, Konstantin; Schnittka, Emma (Journal of Advanced Student Sciences (JASS), 2017)
      A variety of studies have explored the effects of stress on short-term memory formation and recollection. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of physiological stress response on short term memory. Stress ...
    • The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Cognitive Function
