BACKGROUND Although marijuana is the most commonly used illicit substance in the US, only a small portion of users go on to develop dependence, suggesting that there are substantial individual differences in vulnerability to marijuana-related problems among users. Deficits in working memory and high trait impulsivity are two factors that may place marijuana(More)
Several theories posit that alcohol is consumed both in relation to one's mood and in relation to different motives for drinking. However, there are mixed findings regarding the role of mood and motives in predicting drinking. Ecological momentary assessment (EMA) methods provide an opportunity to evaluate near real-time changes in mood and motives within(More)
Smoking lapses (i.e., returns to smoking after quitting) often occur following alcohol consumption with observational data suggesting greater quantities of alcohol lead to greater risk. However, a causal dose-dependent effect of alcohol consumption on smoking lapse behavior has not been established, and the mechanisms that might account for such an effect(More)
It is important to understand the individual differences that contribute to greater frequency or intensity of marijuana use, or greater frequency of experiencing marijuana-related problems. The current study examined several elements of behavioral and emotional self-regulation as predictors of the likelihood and intensity of both marijuana use and(More)
Figure 1. Scene from the modeller, showing four separate views of a procedurally generated church. Figure 2. An image of the final, texture mapped church. A model like this can be produced in minutes. Abstract This paper presents a review of techniques currently used to model architectural structures, and the method being developed to rapidly model(More)
1. Introduction Haptic rendering enables a user to touch, feel, and manipulate virtual objects through a haptic interface (see Figure 1). The field has shown a significant expansion during the last decade. Since the publication of earlier review papers (Salisbury and Srinivasan, 1997; Srinivasan and Basdogan, 1997), new rendering techniques and several new(More)
To the extent that craving serves to compel excessive drinking, it would be important to predict the intensity of an individual's craving over the course of a drinking episode. Previous research indicates that regular alcohol use (measured by the AUDIT) and the number of drinks individuals have already consumed that evening independently predict craving to(More)
The economic production and the interactive rendering of complete reconstructions of populated urban environments are technically difficult tasks. Specialized modelling tools, which exploit knowledge of the types of object being modelled by working in the application domain, can be used to create appealing virtual reconstructions quickly. At the same time,(More)
