How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Most tasks for measuring automatic approach–avoidance tendencies do not resemble naturalistic approach–avoidance behaviors. Therefore, we developed a paradigm for the assessment of approach–avoidance tendencies towards palatable food, which is based on arm and hand movements on a touchscreen, thereby mimicking real-life grasping or warding movement...
Background and objectives Approaching the thin-ideal and avoiding the stigma of fatness are motivational tendencies resulting from the internalisation of sociocultural appearance norms. Individual differences in subclinical levels of eating disorder symptomatology may be related to variation in motivational tendencies regarding thin vs. non-thin b...
Background: Repeatedly pushing high-calorie food stimuli away based on joystick movements has been found to reduce approach biases toward these stimuli. Some studies also found that such avoidance training reduced consumption of high-calorie foods. Objective: This study aimed to test effects of a smartphone-based approach-avoidance intervention...
Automatic approach tendencies are often assessed with joystick-based approach–avoidance tasks (AATs). In line with similar studies, we have previously shown that individuals show an approach bias towards palatable food only when picture valence (i.e., the content of the picture) is relevant for task performance. In the current study, we adapted thi...
BACKGROUND Repeatedly pushing high-calorie food stimuli away based on joystick movements has been found to reduce approach biases towards these stimuli. Some studies also found that such avoidance trainings reduced consumption of high-calorie foods. OBJECTIVE To make such interventions suitable for daily use, this preregistered study tested effect...
The accurate assessment of nutrition information is a challenging task, but crucial for people with certain diseases, such as diabetes. An important part of the assessment of nutrition information is portion estimation, i.e. volume estimation. Given the volume and the food type, the nutrition information can be computed on the basis of the food typ...
Imprecise carbohydrate counting as a measure to guide the treatment of diabetes may be a source of errors resulting in problems in glycemic control. Exact measurements can be tedious, leading most patients to estimate their carbohydrate intake. In the presented pilot study a smartphone application (BEAR), that guides the estimation of the amounts o...
Stimmt die Ernährung, bewegt man sich ausreichend und sind die Gesundheitswerte in Ordnung? Antworten auf diese Fragen geben nicht nur Hausärztin und Hausarzt, auch Smartphones können wertvolle Hinweise zum Gesundheitszustand liefern. Was dabei sinnvoll und technisch möglich ist, wird im Projekt „Smart Health Check“ an der Fachhochschule Salzburg erforscht. Ziel ist die Entwicklung von Software-Bausteinen für den Einsatz in spezialisierten Gesundheits-Apps. Sie helfen bei der Diagnose und Behandlung und unterstützen PatientInnen im Umgang mit ihrer Krankheit.
