Sociodemographic Correlates of Contemporary Screen Time Use among 9- and 10-Year-Old Children
We aim to determine sociodemographic correlates of contemporary screen time use among a diverse population-based sample of 9- and 10-year-old children.
Physiological Synchrony: A New Approach Toward Identifying Unknown Presentation Attacks on Biometric Systems
Here, we propose a new approach toward detecting unknown presentation attacks based on the measurement and characterization of synchrony between multiple physiological signals obtained from contact and contactless sensors.
Performance of Fitbit Charge 3 Against Polysomnography in Measuring Sleep in Adolescent Boys and Girls
