1. Grelot, Monique C. Gender Differences in the Relation Between Locus of Control and Physiological Responses.

Degree: MS, Psychology, 1989, Old Dominion University

The relationship between locus of control and the physiological responses of heart rate (HR) and electrodermal activity (EDA) was investigated in 30 males and 31 females during an arithmetic task. The Levenson's Internal, Powerful Others and Chance (IPC) scales (Levenson, 1974) were used to assess the various degrees of internality for each subject. Additionally, to determine each subject's physiological Lability or Stability (LS), EDA was measured by recording spontaneous skin conductance responses during a ten minute rest period and to a tone (an Orienting Response (OR) task). A simple difficulty effect was found on the performance scores across the three levels of difficulty for all subjects. There was an inverse relationship between the I and C scales and the EDA, but no gender differences were found. Males, however, showed more electrodermal spontaneous fluctuations than females. Advisors/Committee Members: Frederick Freeman, Raymond Kirby, Janice Sanchez-Hucles, Peter Mikulka.

2. Philput, Christine B. The Effects of Life Stress and Risk-Taking Style on Risk Perception and Driver Performance.

Degree: PhD, Psychology, 1989, Old Dominion University

This study examined the effects of risk-taking style, stress level, and highway environment on driver performance. In Phase I, 50 subjects were assessed for risk-taking style and stress level. In Phase II, the same subjects were presented with slides of traffic situations that varied in terms of risk of accident. This was a paired comparison task in which they rank-ordered ten highway sites, producing a measure of subjective risk. No significant relationships were identified between these subjective risk judgments and objective data regarding those sites (accidents and fatalities), though this is most likely due to problems with the slide presentation. In Phase III, the subjects drove in one of two scenarios (high-risk of accident or low-risk) in a highway simulator, and six vehicle operation variables were recorded, including time spent in each zone of the scenario, lane placement, average speed and standard deviation of speed over zones, number of accidents, and steering reversals. Evaluation of these variables indicated that risk-taking style and stress were good predictors of driver performance, though not as good as the difficulty of the roadway, which accounted for 87% of the variance. Of particular importance was the interaction of high levels of stress and high risk-taking style on driver performance, causing decrements in the vehicle operation measures. Advisors/Committee Members: Glynn D. Coates, Peter Mikulka, Raymond H. Kirby.

3. Collicott, Sheila F. Increasing Readiness to Change Among Smokers in a Primary Care Setting.

Degree: Doctor of Psychology (PsyD), Psychology, 2000, Old Dominion University

This study compared the effectiveness of two brief interventions, direct advice and motivational interviewing, for increasing motivation to quit among male smokers in the pre-contemplation and contemplation stages of change who were primary care patients at an Eastern urban VA medical center. Contrary to expectations, participants receiving motivational interviews did not increase more in readiness to change, motivation, and actions to quit, than those receiving direct advice or a control conversation, nor did they smoke fewer cigarettes per day. As expected, contemplators reported more cutting down and quit attempts than pre-contemplators. Factors that may have limited the effectiveness of interventions are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Robin J. Lewis, Peter Mikulka, Delanyard Robinson, Susan Garvey, W. Clint.
