Attitude confidence and source credibility in information foraging with social tags

Stefan Schweiger, Ulrike Cress, Jonathan Jong
2019 PLoS ONE  
We manipulated (1) confidence in prior attitudes, and (2) the credibility of the expert community that tagged the content. We found that both factors influence navigation in different ways.  ...  The findings also show that credibility and confidence have a different impact on different stages of information selection and evaluation.  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to Manfred Knobloch and André Klemke for providing the social tagging navigation platform and the data preparation, and Tobias Ley and Paul Seitlinger for providing valuable  ...

A multiscale interaction technique for large, high-resolution displays

Sarah M. Peck, Chris North, Doug Bowman
2009 2009 IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces  
The paradigm has changed from sitting at a desktop computer to taking users' physical navigation into account and designing more mobile interactions.  ...  This is a problem because tasks change at different levels of visual scale.  ...  All of this strengthens the argument for embodiment theory.  ...

An Important Step toward Understanding the Role of Body-based Cues on Human Spatial Memory for Large-Scale Environments

Derek J. Huffman, Arne D. Ekstrom
2020 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
We highlight the exciting possibility of taking a more naturalistic approach to study the behavior, cognition, and neuroscience of navigation.  ...  Moreover, we share the hope that researchers who study navigation in humans and nonhuman animals will synergize to provide more rapid advancements in our understanding of cognition and the brain.  ...  Does the role of body-based cues differ at different scales of space (see Figure 1B) ?  ...
