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.

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
A biological security motivation system for potential threats: are there implications for policy-making?
Because security motivation theory makes predictions about what kinds of stimuli activate security motivation and what conditions terminate it, the theory may have applications both in understanding how policy-makers can best influence others, such as the public, and also in understanding the behavior of policy-making themselves.
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.
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

Heuristics made easy: an effort-reduction framework.
A new framework for understanding and studying heuristics is proposed that can be classified according to a small set of effort-reduction principles, which reduces the redundancy in the field and helps to explicate the domain-general principles underlying Heuristics.
Risk-Specific Search for Risk-Defusing Operators
Active risk-defusing behavior is that performed by decision makers in risky situations when they look for additional actions that decrease the risk and allow them to favor a riskier alternative. Our
