Human patients rendered cortically blind by lesions to V1 can nevertheless discriminate between visual stimuli presented to their blind fields. Experimental evidence suggests that two response modes are involved. Patients are either unaware or aware of the visual stimuli, which they are able to discriminate. However, under both conditions patients insist(More)
Object motion perception was assessed in avestibular patients and normal controls. Two experiments were conducted, in which subjects were required to assess the motion of a visual stimulus with respect to earth. In the first experiment, we measured the velocity at which a briefly presented (200 ms) grating was perceived as earth fixed, while the subject(More)
The switch reported here for the first time was designed for an application in satellite based communications, where the requirements were for low actuation voltage, high isolation, good vibration and shock tolerance, and low power consumption. The functional requirement was for a single-pole, double throw (SPDT) switch. To satisfy the low voltage(More)
Electromechanical circuit breakers based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) structures are proposed, and initial prototypes are demonstrated. The devices use laterally moving thermal actuators to set and trip low resistance contacts. The actuators are fabricated from electroplated Ni, on Si substrates, with Au-Co contact layers. Trip currents of 300(More)
We have investigated visual responses to moving stimuli presented to the normal hemifield of a hemianope, GY, who exhibits residual visual function in his right, 'blind' hemifield. Preliminary experiments established that his perception of moving stimuli localized in his 'blind' hemifield is retained when a similar stimulus is presented simultaneously in(More)
