- Scrambled eyes? Disrupting scene structure impedes focal processing and increases bottom-up guidance. Foulsham, Tom; Alan, Rana; Kingstone, Alan // Attention, Perception & Psychophysics;Oct2011, Vol. 73 Issue 7, p2008
Previous research has demonstrated that search and memory for items within natural scenes can be disrupted by 'scrambling' the images. In the present study, we asked how disrupting the structure of a scene through scrambling might affect the control of eye fixations in either a search task...
- ASSESSMENT OF VISUAL PERCEPTION OF WEB-BASED VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENTS SIMULATIONS OF AN URBAN CONTEXT. Mahmoud, Ayman Hassaan A. // ArchNet-IJAR;Mar2011, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p114
The existing research literature on environmental perception is a body of work mainly based on the use of static representation of environments. However, the real world is usually experienced in a dynamic experience. Virtual environments' technologies offer the potential to produce simulated...
- Visual capture influences body-based indications of visual extent. Kunz, Benjamin; Creem-Regehr, Sarah; Thompson, William // Experimental Brain Research;Nov2010, Vol. 207 Issue 3/4, p259
Visual information regarding limb location can override proprioceptive information when there is conflict between the two-a phenomenon referred to as visual capture. In three experiments, we employed the 'mirror illusion,' in which the perceived location of one's hand is influenced by the visual...
- Coevolution of active vision and feature selection. Floreano, Dario; Kato, Toshifumi; Marocco, Davide; Sauser, Eric // Biological Cybernetics;2004, Vol. 90 Issue 3, p218
We show that complex visual tasks, such as position- and size-invariant shape recognition and navigation in the environment, can be tackled with simple architectures generated by a coevolutionary process of active vision and feature selection. Behavioral machines equipped with primitive vision...
- Residents� Yard Choices and Rationales in a Desert City: Social Priorities, Ecological Impacts, and Decision Tradeoffs. Larson, Kelli L.; Casagrande, David; Harlan, Sharon L.; Yabiku, Scott T. // Environmental Management;Nov2009, Vol. 44 Issue 5, p921
As a dominant land use in urban ecosystems, residential yards impact water and other environmental resources. Converting thirsty lawns into alternative landscapes is one approach to water conservation, yet barriers such as cultural norms reinforce the traditional lawn. Meanwhile, the complex...
- Environmental Nexus: and You Will Know Us by Our Places. // Journal of Civil Engineering & Architecture;2010, Vol. 4 Issue 5, p29
No abstract available.
- Read a Map of Washington, D.C. // Junior Scholastic;10/4/2004 Skills Book, p17
Discusses about the geographical situation of Washington D.C. on the map.
- Developing a holistic view of geographical information systems. Baban, Serwan // Geography;Jul98, Vol. 83 Issue 360, p257
Investigates attempts made for the improvement of students' understanding of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Presentation of an assessed end-of-course project; Identification of two types of GIS; Information on the deep learning approach; Main characteristics of the project; Reference to...
- Seeing is believing. Chance, P. // Psychology Today;Jan/Feb89, Vol. 23 Issue 1/2, p26
Discusses various psychological factors that can affect vision and how people perceive an object or incident.
