This paper proposes a novel and simple local neural classifier for the recognition of mental tasks from on-line spontaneous EEG signals. The proposed neural classifier recognizes three mental tasks from on-line spontaneous EEG signals. Correct recognition is around 70%. This modest rate is largely compensated by two properties, namely low percentage of(More)
 There is a growing interest in the use of physiological signals for communication and operation of devices for the severely motor disabled as well as for healthy people. A few groups around the world have developed brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) that rely upon the recognition of motor-related tasks (i.e., imagination of movements) from on-line EEG(More)
Enhancing health literacy is a keystone in health promotion. Yet, most studies on health literacy are limited to functional literacy levels. Furthermore, little evidence is available from children. Based on Nutbeam's outcome model for health promotion, this study aims (i) to elaborate a set of short scales to measure important health literacy domains in(More)
Nach aktuellen repräsentativen Erhebungen rauchen ca. 20% der 11 bis 17-Jährigen. Die Prävalenzen steigen von <2% bei den 11- und 12-Jährigen auf >40% bei den 17-Jährigen. Weniger als 2,1% der 11- bis 13-Jährigen greift regelmäßig zur Zigarette – 1,4% täglich. Das Ziel der Untersuchung ist eine Vollerhebung des Rauchverhaltens und möglicher assoziierter(More)
Health literacy (HL) is a key outcome of health education. Low HL is associated with a higher risk of health-related impairments and high health-related costs. This article therefore describes the contents and evaluation of the school-based programme “Health literacy in school-aged children” (GeKoKidS) and its acceptance by teachers. A second focus of the(More)
Mental disorders have a large impact on individuals, families, and communities, and are one of the main causes worldwide of disability and distress. Correct diagnosis of mental disorders is essential in clinical practice, pharmacological research, and successful treatment. Patients with mental retardation often have multiple and sometimes complicated(More)
The main goal of this study was the evaluation of an intervention programme for the promotion of health literacy in school-aged children (grade 5-6). The project and the programme were highly accepted, the extension of the annual dental health examination was suitable to collect data within evaluation projects in schools. In spite of positive outcomes, a(More)
Je nach Entwicklungsbereich weisen bis zu 17,6 % der Einschüler in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (M-V) in den Schuleingangsuntersuchungen Verzögerungen in der Motorik, Sprache oder der sozialen Entwicklung und somit ungünstige Voraussetzungen für einen erfolgreichen Schulstart auf . Die Früherkennung von Entwicklungsgefährdungen (EG) bei 3- bis 6-Jährigen ist seit(More)
Vorgestellt wird die deutschsprachige Adaptation des australischen Programms „MindMatters“ zur Förderung der psychischen Gesundheit in Schulen (Sek. I). Die externe Evaluation beinhaltete u. a. ein fragebogengestütztes Pre-Post-Design (Messabstand: 1 Jahr). Im Sinne des Programms ist bei den befragten 633 Lehrkräften v. a. eine bessere Einschätzung der(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Pain in children and adolescents in Germany is a common health problem which has a high socioeconomic impact. There have been no studies allowing a reliable estimation of the prevalence of pain in children in the 5 (th) grade (age range 9-13 years) in schools in the region of the city of Greifswald and the administrative district East(More)
