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 deg. 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 more
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 ...

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

In some cases, it is required to alter the orientation of a sequence of characters relative to the inline-progression-direction. The requirement is particularly applicable to vertical layouts of East Asian documents, where sometimes narrow-cell Latin text is to be displayed horizontally and other times vertically. 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.

A method for selecting an orientation of a treatment beam for intensity modulated radiation therapy based on analysis performed on a model of a patient geometry prior to the actual treatment. The model of patient geometry includes a planning target volume (PTV) containing the object to be treated by radiation, e.g., a tumor, and the structure or structures at risk, such as internal organs, bone and/or tissue. The method calls for assigning a tolerance parameter to the structure or structures at risk, subdividing the treatment beam into beamlets, selecting a treatment parameter and selecting a set of orientations for the treatment beam and deriving a score for each of the orientations in the set by weighting each of the beamlets so as to maximize the treatment parameter in the PTV while not exceeding the tolerance parameter in the structure or structures at risk at each orientation. The derived scores are used to construct a scoring function to aid in the selection of one or more treatment beam
Transcription:. What I have to say is that orientation is one of those subjects that its probably one of the most ignored things in buildings generally. Orientation is much more than just where the Sun sets in the west. Often people will talk to us about there is problem a window here and a window that lets in light here with little or no understanding of what really matters with orientation. It would take up a day to go through this in detail. To give you an idea of how deep this could go; do you really know in your suburb where the prevailing weather comes from? There is every chance we have already worked on your street we already know the answer to that question. But often is the case when we are sitting through a design interview with a client, we have to go through the obvious points of orientation. The idea with this generally, in a very general way, is to try and get some winter light into your home and try to take the summer heat out. That is probably the essence of it. But the design ...

This week Ive been thinking a lot about how to design a UI toolkit, and this is about to get very techy, because I would like to talk about API design. I prefer C to C++ and Im not particularly fond of Object orientation (Although i use it on occasion). UIs are an area that are often thought of as a place where Object Oriented design really shines, but I think that is because of how we think UIs should be designed. Lets have a look at how one would typically create a button in a UI system: [cpp] void my_button_callback(void *user) {
