Interruption of Action and Stress

A Structuralist Approach

  • Chapter

Part of the Recent Research in Psychology book series (PSYCHOLOGY)

Abstract

The interruption of action is a subject of various theories, e.g. field theory, emotion, frustration or stress theories. Following the structuralist conception of scientific theories, we first develop the basic theory element including common important components of previous theories. A theory net is built specifying the basic theory element with respect to often analyzed hypotheses within human-computer interaction. This theory-net includes several specific theory elements tested in a series of experiments.
