  • stimuli
  • Recent studies show an age-dependent impairment in orientation discrimination of stimuli embedded in external noise, suggesting that encoding of orientation is inefficient in older adults. (frontiersin.org)
  • In human psychophysics, decision making in a binary orientation discrimination task requires a neural decoding operation ( Gold and Ding, 2013 ) to select which of two alternative presented stimuli is the target. (frontiersin.org)
  • similar orientation
  • However, distractors reduced more d ′ when target-background orientation offset was large than when target and flanker had similar orientation, indicating that the effect of the background was not local, i.e., due to target inhibition by similarly oriented flankers. (frontiersin.org)
  • respectively
  • We compared younger and older participants capability (mean age 24 and 68 years respectively) in discriminating whether the orientation of a Gabor target was left or right from the vertical. (frontiersin.org)
  • opposite
  • To decide whether the presented orientation is right or left from the vertical, the neural response to the presented orientation (positive) should be enhanced and that to the opposite (null) might be attenuated. (frontiersin.org)
  • Thus
  • In the isolated target condition, d ′ was reduced by aging and, in the older group, did not increase with orientation offset, thus resulting in a larger group difference at large than small orientation offsets from the vertical. (frontiersin.org)

  • Eison argued that students who approached college as an opportunity to acquire new skills and knowledge possessed a learning orientation while students who approached college with the goal to exclusively obtain high grades possessed a grade orientation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Students' achievement orientations were shown to be predictive of academic performance, specifically, students with high achievement orientation tended to value competence, expect success and seek challenges, while students with low achievement motivation tended to expect failure and avoid challenges. (wikipedia.org)
  • strive

  • vector
  • For example, the orientation in space of a line, line segment, or vector can be specified with only two values, for example two direction cosines. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore, any orientation can be represented by a rotation vector (also called Euler vector) that leads to it from the reference frame. (wikipedia.org)
  • A full rotation will move the vector around so that the new orientation of the vector is the same as the old one. (wikipedia.org)
  • predict

  • example
  • Across development, future orientation is particularly important during periods of major changes, for example during the transition from adolescence to adulthood, when youth must make choices about social groups, academic paths, as well as risky behaviors like drug and alcohol use, and sexual activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another example is the position of a point on the earth, often described using the orientation of a line joining it with the earth's center, measured using the two angles of longitude and latitude. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is an example of orientation entanglement: the new orientation of the coffee cup embedded in the room is not actually the same as the old orientation, as evidenced by the twisting of the rubber bands. (wikipedia.org)

  • The second possible advantage is the ordered structure aids in development, by guaranteeing all orientations are represented throughout the visual field with minimal redundancy and no deficiencies. (wikipedia.org)
  • dimensions
  • Orientation is a function of the mind involving awareness of three dimensions: time, place and person. (wikipedia.org)
  • Just over a decade after Dweck conceptualized the two-factor model of goal orientation, VandeWalle proposed that goal orientation is better conceptualized as a three-factor model, further dividing performance goal orientation into the dimensions of avoidant performance goal orientation (APGO) and prove performance goal orientation (PPGO). (wikipedia.org)
  • Euler's rotation theorem shows that in three dimensions any orientation can be reached with a single rotation around a fixed axis. (wikipedia.org)
