Stručná anotácia
We know lifestyle is related to psychological well-being. We will study the relations between the level of every-day physical activity, individual economical stability, workload, and nutrition with psychological stress (measured by psychological tests - for long-term distress - and cortison level - for short-term distress), and how this relation influences performance is a battery of cognitive
tests in younger and older populations in rural and urban areas. You will learn: 1) how to measure long-term and short-term psychological distress; 2) how to run cognitive tests using various experimental paradigms; 3) how to develop Rasch scales and assess reliability of measurements for the tests you yourself will
design (that is, you will learn to assess how reliable and valid your own tests are); 4) choose the proxy measures to analyze individual lifestyle.
