Sex differences in the consumption of over-the-counter analgesics among amateur volleyball players
To reduce the prevalence of OTC analgesic use, educational programs should be implemented in sports teams; and, to reduce direct and indirect social pressure, sports teams should also receive sex-specific psychological support.

Prospect theory: analysis of decision under risk
Analysis of decision making under risk has been dominated by expected utility theory, which generally accounts for people's actions. Presents a critique of expected utility theory as a descriptive
Prospect Theory : An Analysis of Decision under Risk
Behavior in Risky Decisions: Focus on Risk Defusing
Results are reported indicating that this central result cannot be generalized, and expectations to find usable probability information and to find information about the existence of an RDO are discussed as factors explaining differences between different types of decision situations and gambles.
Information search and mental representation in risky decision making: The advantages first principle
In three experiments the problem is investigated how people identify early in the decision process those alternatives that are worthwhile to be examined in more detail. We assume that decision makers
Framing of Decisions: Effect on Active and Passive Risk Avoidance
Decision makers intending to avoid risk in a decision situation can choose a less risky alternative (passive risk avoidance) or intervene actively in an alternative applying a risk-defusing action
Successful or unsuccessful search for risk defusing operators: Effects on decision behaviour
In experiments with quasi-realistic risky scenarios instead of gambles, decision makers are less interested in probability information. Often, they actively search for a risk defusing operator (RDO;
Risky Decisions
Decision behavior in realistic risky scenarios is quite different from that in gambles: Decision makers in the former are less interested in probability information than they are in the latter.
The Effects of Time Constraints on the Prechoice Screening of Decision Options
The results show that, like choice, screening under time constraints can lead to speeding up of execution, particularly if the screening decision is important, however, switching to a simpler strategy, which occurs in choice, does not appear to occur in screening.
Theories of chess skill
SummaryThe paper reviews the evidence for and against the recognition-association theory and a forward-search (SEEK) theory of chess skill. The recognition-association theory appears to be founded on
