Subjective perception of body sway. (1/3615)

OBJECTIVES AND METHOD: The relation between body sway recorded through a stabilometric platform and the subjective report of steadiness was studied in 20 young and 20 elderly subjects and 20 neuropathic and 20 parkinsonian patients standing upright. The trials were performed under two stances (feet apart, feet together) and two visual conditions (eyes open, eyes closed). At the end of each trial, subjects scored their performance on a scale from 10 (complete steadiness) to 0 (fall). RESULTS: In all subjects, independently of the stance conditions, the larger the body sway the smaller the reported score. The function best fitting this relation was linear when sway was expressed on a logarithmic scale. The scoring reproducibility proved high both within and across subjects. Despite the different body sways and scores recorded under the different visual and postural conditions (eyes closed>eyes open, feet together>feet apart) in all groups of subjects and patients, the slopes of the relations between sway and score were broadly superimposable. In the normal subjects, the scores were slightly higher during eyes open than eyes closed trials for corresponding body sways. This was interpreted as a sign of perception of greater stability when vision was allowed. Parkinsonian patients swayed to a similar extent as normal subjects, and their scores were accordingly similar, both with eyes open and eyes closed. Neuropathic patients swayed to a larger extent than normal subjects, and their scores were matched appropriately. Although the slope of their relation with eyes closed was not different from that of normal subjects, with eyes open it was steeper and similar to that with eyes closed, suggesting that these patients did not feel more stable when they could take advantage of vision. CONCLUSIONS: The subjective evaluation of body sway, irrespective of stance condition, age, neuropathy, and basal ganglia disease, reflects the actual sway, and is inversely proportional to the logarithm of the sway value. The remarkable similarity of the relation between score and sway across the various groups of subjects with eyes closed indicates a common mode of sway evaluation, possibly based on integration of several sensory inputs. All groups except neuropathic patients seem to take advantage of the redundancy of the inputs. Basal ganglia integrity does not seem to have a role in the evaluation of sway.  (+info)

Optical imaging of functional domains in the cortex of the awake and behaving monkey. (2/3615)

As demonstrated by anatomical and physiological studies, the cerebral cortex consists of groups of cortical modules, each comprising populations of neurons with similar functional properties. This functional modularity exists in both sensory and association neocortices. However, the role of such cortical modules in perceptual and cognitive behavior is unknown. To aid in the examination of this issue we have applied the high spatial resolution optical imaging methodology to the study of awake, behaving animals. In this paper, we report the optical imaging of orientation domains and blob structures, approximately 100-200 micrometer in size, in visual cortex of the awake and behaving monkey. By overcoming the spatial limitations of other existing imaging methods, optical imaging will permit the study of a wide variety of cortical functions at the columnar level, including motor and cognitive functions traditionally studied with positron-emission tomography or functional MRI techniques.  (+info)

A theory of geometric constraints on neural activity for natural three-dimensional movement. (3/3615)

Although the orientation of an arm in space or the static view of an object may be represented by a population of neurons in complex ways, how these variables change with movement often follows simple linear rules, reflecting the underlying geometric constraints in the physical world. A theoretical analysis is presented for how such constraints affect the average firing rates of sensory and motor neurons during natural movements with low degrees of freedom, such as a limb movement and rigid object motion. When applied to nonrigid reaching arm movements, the linear theory accounts for cosine directional tuning with linear speed modulation, predicts a curl-free spatial distribution of preferred directions, and also explains why the instantaneous motion of the hand can be recovered from the neural population activity. For three-dimensional motion of a rigid object, the theory predicts that, to a first approximation, the response of a sensory neuron should have a preferred translational direction and a preferred rotation axis in space, both with cosine tuning functions modulated multiplicatively by speed and angular speed, respectively. Some known tuning properties of motion-sensitive neurons follow as special cases. Acceleration tuning and nonlinear speed modulation are considered in an extension of the linear theory. This general approach provides a principled method to derive mechanism-insensitive neuronal properties by exploiting the inherently low dimensionality of natural movements.  (+info)

Ultrasonic vocalizations elicit orienting and associative reactions in preweanling mice. (4/3615)

On postnatal days (PND) 12 and 13, 90 male Swiss CD-1 mice were tested for orientation to 3 intensities of recorded ultrasounds while climbing an inclined wire grid surface. Motor responses and vocalization to replayed ultrasounds (55-75 kHz) of 20-, 40-, and 60-dB SPL indicated an intensity dependence. In Experiment 2, 138 pups were exposed to either contingent or noncontingent pairings of recorded ultrasounds of 55-75 kHz, averaging 40 dB, and mild inescapable footshocks, or taped vocalizations or footshocks only on PND 12, 14, or 16. At PND 18, subjects were tested for passive avoidance following exposure to the taped ultrasounds only upon entry into the dark side of a black-white compartment. Results suggested only overall, nonspecific effects of pretreatment to elicit responses antagonistic to motor activity. In Experiment 3, 36 pups at PND 15 were tested for passive avoidance with the ultrasound recordings of 40- or 80-dB onset upon entry to the dark compartment; a third group had no ultrasound exposure. A significant intensity effect confirmed that the ultrasounds had prepotent properties.  (+info)

The physiological effects of monocular deprivation and their reversal in the monkey's visual cortex. (5/3615)

1. 1127 single units were recorded during oblique penetrations in area 17 of one normal, three monocularly deprived and four reverse sutured monkeys. 2. In all animals most cells outside layer IV c were orientation-selective, and preferred orientation usually shifted from cell to cell in a regular progressive sequence. 3. The presence in layer IV c of non-oriented, monocularly driven units, organized in alternating right-eye and left-eye 'stripes' (LeVay, Hubel & Wiesel, 1975) was confirmed. 4. Early monocular deprivation (2--5 1/2 weeks) caused a strong shift of ocular dominance towards the non-deprived eye. However, even outside layer IV c, neural background and some isolated cells could still be driven from the deprived eye in regularly spaced, narrow columnar regions. In layer IV c the non-deprived eye's stripes were almost three times wider, on average, than the deprived. 5. Later monocular deprivation (11--16 months) had no detectable influence on layer IV c but seemed to cause a small shift in ocular dominance outside IV c. Deprivation for 6 1/4 months in an adult had no such effect. 6. After early reverse suturing (at 5 1/2 weeks) the originally deprived eye gained dominance over cells outside layer IV c just as complete as that originally exercised by the eye that was first non-deprived. 7. The later reverse suturing was delayed, the less effective was recapture by the originally deprived eye. Reversal at 8 weeks led to roughly equal numbers of cells being dominated by each eye; fewer cells became dominated by the newly open eye after reverse suturing at 9 weeks and most of them were non-oriented; reversal at 38 1/2 weeks had no effect. 8. Binocular cells, though rare in reverse sutured animals, always had very similar preferred orientations in the two eyes. The columnar sequences of preferred orientation were not interrupted at the borders of ocular dominance columns. 9. Even within layer IV c there was evidence for re-expansion of physiologically determined ocular dominance stripes. After early reverse suture, stripes for the two eyes became roughly equal in width. Possible mechanisms for these changes are discussed.  (+info)

Macaque SEF neurons encode object-centered directions of eye movements regardless of the visual attributes of instructional cues. (6/3615)

Macaque SEF neurons encode object-centered directions of eye movements regardless of the visual attributes of instructional cues. Neurons in the supplementary eye field (SEF) of the macaque monkey exhibit object-centered direction selectivity in the context of a task in which a spot flashed on the right or left end of a sample bar instructs a monkey to make an eye movement to the right or left end of a target bar. To determine whether SEF neurons are selective for the location of the cue, as defined relative to the sample bar, or, alternatively, for the location of the target, as defined relative to the target bar, we carried out recording while monkeys performed a new task. In this task, the color of a cue-spot instructed the monkey to which end of the target bar an eye movement should be made (blue for the left end and yellow for the right end). Object-centered direction selectivity persisted under this condition, indicating that neurons are selective for the location of the target relative to the target bar. However, object-centered signals developed at a longer latency (by approximately 200 ms) when the instruction was conveyed by color than when it was conveyed by the location of a spot on a sample bar.  (+info)

Averaging and summation of influences on visually perceived eye level between two long lines differing in pitch or roll-tilt. (7/3615)

The presence of one or two long, dim, eccentrically-placed, parallel, pitched-from-vertical lines in darkness generates a systematic influence on the physical elevation that appears to correspond to eye level (VPEL). The influence of the line(s) in darkness is nearly as large as that produced by a complexly-structured, well-illuminated visual field (Matin L, Li W. Vis Res, 1994;34:311-330); oblique lines in a frontoparallel plane that strike the same projected orientations generate the same influences as those generated by pitched-from-vertical lines (Li W, Matin L. Perception, 1996;25:831-852). The two experiments described here examined the influence on the physical elevation of VPEL due to simultaneous viewing of two long lines of different pitch (Experiment 1) or two long lines of different obliquity in a frontoparallel plane (Experiment 2). Experiment 1 employed two long (66 degrees), simultaneously-presented, pitched-from-vertical lines in darkness on bilaterally symmetric locations at 25 degrees horizontal eccentricity, with each line at one of seven pitches in the range from -30 degrees to +30 degrees; VPELs were measured for all 49 possible pitch combinations. Experiment 2 was identically constructed, but employed oblique 2-line stimuli from a frontoparallel plane that struck the same projected orientations as did the pitched-from-vertical lines in Experiment 1. VPELs measured on four subjects in the two experiments were indistinguishable for corresponding conditions of pitch and obliquity. For a given pitch (obliquity) of one of the lines the elevation of VPEL increased linearly with the pitch (obliquity) of the second line. The VPEL for any 2-line combination is very close to the average of the VPELs for the two individual lines; a small amount of additive summation between the influences of the two lines was also found. Parallel and nonparallel 2-line stimuli appear to follow the same rules of combination. The results are clear in showing that the visual influence on VPEL is controlled by an opponent-process mechanism.  (+info)

The role of orientation flights on homing performance in honeybees. (8/3615)

Honeybees have long served as a model organism for investigating insect navigation. Bees, like many other nesting animals, primarily use learned visual features of the environment to guide their movement between the nest and foraging sites. Although much is known about the spatial information encoded in memory by experienced bees, the development of large-scale spatial memory in naive bees is not clearly understood. Past studies suggest that learning occurs during orientation flights taken before the start of foraging. We investigated what honeybees learn during their initial experience in a new landscape by examining the homing of bees displaced after a single orientation flight lasting only 5-10 min. Homing ability was assessed using vanishing bearings and homing speed. At release sites with a view of the landmarks immediately surrounding the hive, 'first-flight' bees, tested after their very first orientation flight, had faster homing rates than 'reorienting foragers', which had previous experience in a different site prior to their orientation flight in the test landscape. First-flight bees also had faster homing rates from these sites than did 'resident' bees with full experience of the terrain. At distant sites, resident bees returned to the hive more rapidly than reorienting or first-flight bees; however, in some cases, the reorienting bees were as successful as the resident bees. Vanishing bearings indicated that all three types of bees were oriented homewards when in the vicinity of landmarks near the hive. When bees were released out of sight of these landmarks, hence forcing them to rely on a route memory, the 'first-flight' bees were confused, the 'reorienting' bees chose the homeward direction except at the most distant site and the 'resident' bees were consistently oriented homewards.  (+info)

In order to explore parietal patients difficulties in the processing of orientation information, we asked parietal patients (N = 8) and healthy and brain-damaged controls to imitate multicomponent actions where object orientation was one component. In Experiment 1 orientation was not the most relevant aspect of the action to be imitated, and the parietal group showed significant difficulties in processing object orientation. However, in Experiment 2, where orientation was placed at the top end of the goal hierarchy, the parietal group were able to process stimulus orientation sufficiently to place it within the goal hierarchy of the action and to reproduce it accurately. We conclude that patients with parietal lesions might be able to include object orientation in a goal hierarchy, but if their processing of orientation information is impaired they might be disproportionately prone to errors when object orientation is lower in the goal hierarchy and so not prioritized for processing resources.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cascaded Bayesian processes: an account of bias in orientation perception. AU - Langley, Keith. AU - Lefebvre, Veronique. AU - Anderson, Stephen J.. PY - 2009/10/15. Y1 - 2009/10/15. N2 - Following adaptation to an oriented (1-d) signal in central vision, the orientation of subsequently viewed test signals may appear repelled away from or attracted towards the adapting orientation. Small angular differences between the adaptor and test yield repulsive shifts, while large angular differences yield attractive shifts. In peripheral vision, however, both small and large angular differences yield repulsive shifts. To account for these tilt after-effects (TAEs), a cascaded model of orientation estimation that is optimized using hierarchical Bayesian methods is proposed. The model accounts for orientation bias through adaptation-induced losses in information that arise because of signal uncertainties and neural constraints placed upon the propagation of visual information. Repulsive ...
Visual perception relies on low-level encoding of local orientation. 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. In the present study we ask whether aging also reduces decoding, i.e., selecting the neural representations of target orientation while discarding those conflicting with it. 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. We measured (d′), an index of discrimination sensitivity, for orientation offset ranging from 1° to 12°. 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. Moreover, oriented elements in the background impaired
Given the abundance of significant effects in the omnibus ANOVA, we simplified our subsequent analyses by computing a composite measure of orientation sensitivity across bandwidth. Specifically, we defined orientation sensitivity as the mean fitted proportion correct from 15°-90°, computed separately for horizontal and vertical filters. For this analysis we chose to utilize the proportion correct predicted from psychometric curves fit to the entire bandwidth range. This procedure reduced the effect of measurement noise, although analyses of the raw proportion correct values yielded qualitatively similar results. For ease of communication, we term the resulting measure orientation sensitivity, as it quantifies overall sensitivity to information conveyed by horizontally and vertically oriented filters irrespective of bandwidth. Orientation sensitivity, plotted in Figure 4, was submitted to a 2 (Familiarity) × 2 (Face Orientation) × 2 (Filter Orientation) ANOVA with face and filter orientation ...
A wafer processing system for performing horizontal transport of vertically-oriented wafers into one or more process cells to perform vertical processing on the wafers. The wafer processing system includes a loading station for loading wafers onto respective carriers in a horizontal fashion and for rotating the carriers to orient the wafers in a vertical orientation for transport and processing, one or more process cells for processing the wafers in a vertical orientation respectively therein, and an unloading station for rotating the carriers to orient the wafers from a vertical orientation to a horizontal orientation and for unloading the wafer off the carriers in a horizontal fashion. Additionally, the wafer processing system includes a carrier transport system for transporting carriers horizontally from the loading station, to one or more process cells, then to the unloading station, and additionally to a carrier process section for processing of empty carriers.
Experimental evidence concerning plasticity of orientation selectivity in visual cortex poses an apparent dilemma. There are strong indications that orientation selectivity of single cells in visual cortex is experience-dependent and dependent on synaptic plasticity. On the other hand, preferred orientation seems very stable. Moreover, preferred orientation is identical for both eyes, even if they never experience common visual input.. To account for this, we propose that a scaffold is embedded in the structure of the long-range lateral connectivity. Its structure determines the initial orientation preference observed in animals with no visual experience and accounts for the stability in the orientation maps that develop in eyes with no common visual experience. The scaffold model is consistent with the broadly tuned, low-spatial frequency orientation selectivity seen in very young animals (DeAngelis et al., 1993). It is also consistent with the observation that orientation selectivity increases ...

Interocular differences in orientation occur during binocular viewing of a surface slanted in depth. These orientation disparities could be exploited by the visual system to provide information about surface slant, but gradients of positional disparity provide an equally effective means to the same end. We examined the encoding of orientation disparities in V1 neurons that were recorded from two awake fixating monkeys. Monocular orientation selectivity was measured separately in each eye. Although the preferred monocular orientation in the left and right eyes was highly correlated (r = 0.98), 19 of 61 cells showed a significant interocular difference in preferred orientation (IDPO). By itself, an IDPO does not imply a specific binocular selectivity for orientation differences. We therefore examined the response to 25 binocular combinations of orientations by pairing each of five orientations in one eye with five in the other. Forty-four of 64 neurons showed responses that reflected the monocular
The activity induced by the collinear flankers depended on the preferred orientation of the recording sites. The orientation tuning of the recording sites was determined by measuring the responses to a moving bar stimulus (see Materials and Methods). We measured the orientation selectivity of the recording sites by computing an orientation selectivity ratio (OSR), defined as the ratio between the response to the best and the worst orientations, after subtraction of the baseline activity. OSRs ranged from 1.2 to 4.3 with a median of 1.7 (N = 38). For every recording site, we determined how well the horizontal orientation used in our experiments matched the preferred orientation of that recording site, defining the following three categories: 0-30, 30-60, and 60-90° from the horizontal orientation. Figure 7C shows the responses evoked by the collinear flankers at these three groups of recording sites in the absence of a target stimulus, normalized to the responses evoked by the horizontal ...

Localization of the subjective vertical during body tilt in pitch and in roll has been extensively studied because of the relevance of these axes for aviation and control of posture. We performed the first measurement of static orientation in -90º to +90º pitch, roll and recumbent yaw using the same subjective orientation task in all axes.. Subjects tasks were to point a gravity-neutral probe to the gravitational vertical (haptically indicated vertical) and to report verbally their perceived tilt. Subjects underestimated their body tilts in recumbent yaw and pitch and overestimated their tilts in roll. The haptic settings for pitch and roll were consistent with data in the literature. Our data constitute the first tri-dimensional assessment of the subjective vertical using a common measurement procedure and provide the basis for the tri-axial modeling of vestibular function.. We have used this data set to develop a tri-axial model of spatial orientation. The model attempts to capture the ...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge graphs can represent the contents of biomedical literature and databases as subject-predicate-object triples, thereby enabling comprehensive analyses that identify e.g. relationships between diseases. Some diseases are often diagnosed in patients in specific temporal sequences, which are referred to as disease trajectories. Here, we determine whether a sequence of two diseases forms a trajectory by leveraging the predicate information from paths between (disease) proteins in a knowledge graph. Furthermore, we determine the added value of directional information of predicates for this task. To do so, we create four feature sets, based on two methods for representing indirect paths, and both with and without directional information of predicates (i.e., which protein is considered subject and which object). The added value of the directional information of predicates is quantified by comparing the classification performance of the feature sets that include or exclude it. ...

The current paper addresses the integrated perception of combined translational and rotational motion, as it occurs when moving along a curved trajectory. We questioned whether the perceived motion through the environment follows the predictions of a self-motion perception model (e.g., Merfeld et al. in J Vestib Res 3:141-161, 1993; Newman in A multisensory observer model for human spatial orientation perception, 2009), which assume linear addition of rotational and translational components. For curved motion in darkness, such models predict a non-veridical motion percept, consisting of an underestimation of the perceived rotation, a distortion of the ...

Managing a project schedule seems like a straight-forward and explicit task. But when the concept of time is introduced, developing and managing a project schedule becomes greatly complicated, primarily because time is shaped by cultural influences. This paper examines how culture can affects a multicultural project teams orientation to time, and in turn, shape the teams project performance. In doing so, it defines two types of orientation to time--monochronism and polychronism, looking at each orientations cultural significance. It compares the advantages and disadvantages of each orientation, noting the key differences between mono-chronic people and poly-chronic people. It also discusses how project managers can develop approaches to work with these orientations to time, noting the values that shape each orientation. It then details eight lessons that the authors learned from working in cultures--and with individuals--that embraced different orientations to managing time and to building

Two properties control the glyph orientation relative to the reference orientation for each of the two possible inline-progression-directions. glyph-orientation-vertical controls glyph orientation when the inline-progression-direction is vertical. glyph-orientation-horizontal controls glyph orientation when the inline-progression-direction is horizontal ...
Is seems to me that only the act of performing a lossless rotate resets the Exif orientation flag. I think any process of rotation should reset the flag, and this should happen irrespective of the ignore exif orientation option. For example, I always have the orientation flag enabled, but occasionally I photograph documents looking vertically down and the orientation set by the camera is fairly random in relation to the document. Once I tell XnView what the image orientation is, I expect the orientation flag to show this ...
Unlike devices, screens have inbuilt capacity for detecting changes in orientation. But devices are not equipped with automated mechanisms for controlling screen orientation. The Mozilla Screen Orientation API provides CSS and JavaScript mechanisms for controlling screen orientations. It enables a device to implement content adjustment using CSS relative to either landscape or portrait mode of a screen. Developers can alternatively use JavaScript screen orientation to get and lock a screens current orientation. The API currently supports only Firefox OS and Firefox Android mobile browsers. It is still a beta release and subject to future changes.

Yo, human! - Proofreading Mac, a VoiceOver Activity: Accessing Life with Adaptive Technology Before my VoiceOver adventures began I was able to proofread my creative and technical writings quickly and easily. My constant struggle with grammar aside, I could find misspellings and punctuation errors, even capitalization and formatting issues with ease. I could quickly blast through multi-page documents in a matter of minutes. Then my longtime visual orientation completely evolved into an audible one. This presented many new challenges to overcome, including proof-reading by listening.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Dynamics of orientation tuning in macaque primary visual cortex. AU - Ringach, Dario L.. AU - Hawken, Michael J.. AU - Shapley, Robert. PY - 1997/5/15. Y1 - 1997/5/15. N2 - Orientation tuning of neurons is one of the chief emergent characteristics of the primary visual cortex, VI. Neurons of the lateral geniculate nucleus, which comprise the thalamic input to V1, are not orientation-tuned, but the majority of V1 neurons are quite selective. How orientation tuning arises within VI is still controversial. To study this problem, we measured how the orientation tuning of neurons evolves with time 20 using a new method: reverse correlation in the orientation domain. Orientation tuning develops after a delay of 30-45 milliseconds and persists for 40-85 ms. Neurons in layers 4Cα or 4Cβ, which receive direct input from the thalamus, show a single orientation preference which remains unchanged throughout the response period. In contrast, the preferred orientations of output layer ...

Cocoa is a collection of object-oriented components written in the Objective-C language. Objective-C is a flexible and dynamic language that adds object-oriented extensions to ANSI standard C. Because of the flexibility of Objective-C, the Cocoa components can be used by a wide variety of languages besides Objective-C. The key language elements needed to use Cocoa are support for dynamic object orientation and compatibility with the C programming language.. This chapter describes the general features of all languages that can be used with Cocoa, and a brief overview of object-oriented terminology. Details about the most common languages used with Cocoa are provided. The available language options are explained along with some of the advantages and disadvantages of different languages. This book primarily uses the Objective-C language, and this chapter explains why.. Java and many scripting languages provide the required language features to use Cocoa directly. Other languages such as C and C++ ...

It is shown that Vernier acuity is nearly proportional to line length (in the range 5-20 arc min), provided that the orientation of the target is randomized from trial 'o trial and provided that no gap interrupts the line. The effect of a pair of gaps, one in each of the Vernier bars leads to the conclusion that line terminations dissect the target into independent parts prior to the visual analysis of shape and orientation cues, which are only assessed between such features.

Recently Ive been exploring the Android operating system. I was sufficiently curious to purchase an ADP1 (an android based developer phone from Google). I think Ive done enough research to begin porting my M12 puzzle. I thought Id share some of the things Ive learned along the way starting with the way orientation works.. Both the T-Mobile G1 and the ADP1 allow applications to be displayed with two different orientations - landscape and portrait. By default the the orientation is controlled by whether the keyboard is exposed. The application can override the default orientation behavior, but doing so requires an understanding of the way orientation works in Android.. Transitions between portrait and landscape mode result in a new instances of of the ...

Document image data entered from a scanner are separated into a plurality of areas by an area separation unit. Attributes are assigned to respective ones of the plurality of partial areas obtained in the area separation unit. For instance, a character area in the main body of text and a character area in a table are examples of area attributes. Each of these attributes is assigned a degree of priority in advance. A character recognition/orientation discrimination unit detects character orientation in each of the plurality of partial areas and discriminates document orientation. The orientation of the document image data is determined based upon the document orientation of each partial area discriminated by the character recognition/orientation discrimination unit and the degree of priority of the attribute assigned to each partial area. Further, first and second recognition units for recognizing characters used in the Japanese and English languages, respectively, are provided, and the image data undergo
Here we use a perturbative approach to compute the ground states of the EN for the joint mapping of two visual features: (i) position in visual space, represented in a retinotopic map and (ii) line orientation, represented in an orientation preference map (OPM). In this framework, the EN incooporates a mapping from a four-dimensional feature space to the twodimensional cortical sheet of neurons. We show that the dynamics of both feature representations can be treated within a general theory for the stability of OPMs [6]. We find various ground states as a function of the lateral intracortical interactions and external stimulus distribution properties. However, in all parameter regimes, the grounds states of the Elastic Network Model are either stripe-like, or crystalline representation of the two visual features. We present a complete phase diagram of the model, summarizing pattern selection. Analytical predictions are confirmed by direct numerical simulations. Our results question previous ...

D-FOM is a proposed approach for Object Oriented Analysis & Designing of a Software/Hardware System.; Author: Deepak Jain; Updated: 7 Apr 2004; Section: Design and Architecture; Chapter: Development Lifecycle; Updated: 7 Apr 2004
In this study, we have introduced optimal orientation as a benchmark for evaluating the performance of orientation strategies in given flow conditions. With optimal orientation, trajectories are longest yet travel duration is minimized by steering through regions of relatively high flow support. The illustrated trajectories (figures 1a,b and 2a,b) demonstrate that optimal orientation in horizontal flow does not always involve increased compensation on approach to the goal (cf. [12,13]), can involve either over-drift or over-compensation en route (cf. [23,38]) and is not always equivalent to full drift in balanced flows (contra [12]).. Our results provide insight into the value of information an animal may have about flow conditions. In flow that is weak compared to self-speeds (W ≤ 0.5), flow prediction is not essential as full compensation and goal orientation are all nearly as reliable and efficient as flow-adjusted vector orientation and optimal orientation (figures 1d, 2d and 3d). This ...
Consumers generally prefer products that are easy to interact with. In three studies, we show that this preference arises from the fit between product orientation and monitored situational constraints. Flexible right-handers, who monitor situational constraints, recall product orientations better and prefer products for which the handle is oriented in the direction of the hand used for grasping. When their ability to monitor situational constraints is impaired, the preference for easy-to-grasp products is attenuated. The findings highlight that motor fluency is a relevant cue for decision making when consumers assess how to interact with a product. The implications of these results for embodiment and fluency research are discussed ...

No renal mass lesion or pelvicaliceal dilatation was found ...
We present a new approach to create painterly renderings of an animated 3D scene, allowing a controllable trade-off between scene fidelity and stylistic design. Our approach extends and complements existing systems in order to ensure temporal coherence while maintaining consistent stroke density, and allowing a wide variety of stroke styles. It is based on a new dynamic painting algorithm which selects a suitable set of sample stroke locations based on an object-space hierarchy. Strokes are created at these locations, with attributes assigned using arbitrary stylistic choices: examples include scene-derived decisions such as having stroke orientation follow curvature or silhouette directions, or user-supplied constraints such as global orientation or thickness. Stroke rendering is then performed using appropriately filtered information from a set of G-buffers. We describe an improved stroke rendering technique which allows a faithful depiction of the scene while letting the user specify his prefered
Insects, with their miniature brains and eyes, are undoubtedly one of the most capable navigators in the animal kingdom. Dung beetles are known to use a large repertoire of sky compass cues as their only reference during straight-line orientation. But how are all these signals processed in the beetle brain to develop a precise internal sky compass? Moreover, how is this network designed in an animal that relies on a pure visual sky compass?
Neurons in the early stages of visual processing are often thought of as edge detectors for different orientations. Here we investigate the existence of detectors for specific combinations of edges-detectors for specific curvatures. Previous attempts to demonstrate such detectors through aftereffects have ultimately been explained by adaptation to local orientation rather than curvature per se. To control for local aftereffects, we adapted one patch of visual field to two adjacent gratings presented as an obtuse contour (compound patch), and another patch to the same component gratings presented alternately (component patch). In this way both patches are adapted equally to the local orientation components of the stimuli, but only the compound patch is adapted to the global contour. Thus any difference in adaptation between the patches must result from the presence of the contour as a global figure. We found that perceived contrast of probe stimuli was not differentially altered in the two ...

We investigate the influence of THG-cut KDP crystal orientation on laser damage at 1064 nm under nanosecond pulses. Since laser damage is now assumed to initiate on precursor defects, this study makes a connection between these nanodefects (throughout a mesoscopic description) and the influence of their orientation on laser damage. Some investigations have already been carried out in various crystals and particularly for KDP, indicating propagation direction and polarization dependences. We performed experiments for two orthogonal positions of the crystal and results clearly indicate that KDP crystal laser damage depends on its orientation. We carried out further investigations on the effect of the polarization orientation, by rotating the crystal around the propagation axis. We then obtained the evolution of the damage probability as a function of the rotation angle. To account for these experimental results, we propose a laser damage model based on ellipsoid-shaped defects. This modeling is a ...
OK, Monks, in fear of being hit with flying keyboards, I must tell you that I am currently in the process of learning Java, as my second language.**ducks** As most of you know, from several posts before on my behalf, Perl was in fact my very first language (well, as far as computers go, of course). However, even though Ive come quite far in Perl, I have yet to pursue Object Oriented Perl. Now that Im embarking on my new Java quest, its coming to my attention, that Java is, itself, object oriented.. So, my question is this...*finally, you say*...should I stop where I am, and come back to learn object orientation in Perl? Is it more a concept to learn, than something to do with a particular language (other than syntax, of course)? Am I leaving my Perl quest immaturely if Ive skipped object oriented Perl?. I suppose I hadnt really seen much point in venturing down that path, as Ive never really come to a problem where the answer to said problem had anything to do at all with OO Perl, but if ...

A class of peptides that associate with lipids, known as oblique-orientated peptides, was recently described [Brasseur R., Pillot, T., Lins, L., Vandekerckhove, J. & Rosseneu, M. (1997) Trends Biochem. Sci. 22, 167-171]. Due to an asymmetric distribution of hydrophobic residues along the axis of the alpha-helix, such peptides adopt an oblique orientation which can destabilise membranes or lipid cores. Variants of these oblique peptides, designed to have an homogeneous distribution of hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues along the helical axis, are classified as regular amphipathic peptides. These peptides are expected to lie parallel to the polar/apolar interface with their hydrophobic residues directed towards the apolar ...

Current flare and jet fire models used in the process industry are primarily based on hydrocarbon gases and have been found not to be particularly effective for low luminosity gases such as hydrogen and syngas mixtures. This article presents a new model for such gases, for low to high pressure releases in both vertical and horizontal orientations. The model, which predicts flame geometry and thermal radiation, allowing for jet momentum, buoyancy, wind and flame radiant fraction, is based on extension of established models, with the addition of several new correlations. Validation against existing published data and new previously unpublished test data collected at both pilot and full scale is presented.
