The Neurophysiological Perspective in Mass Communication Research
The neurophysiological perspective argues for a paradigm shift to a new way of thinking about mass communication that goes beyond the nomothetic deductive models of the past and embraces current scientfic ontology and epistemology.
Flow Theory: Advances in Experimental Manipulation & Measurement
An experimental study manipulates level of challenge in a video game and makes a case for the use of secondary task response times as a continuous, unobtrusive measure of flow.
