Salient persons and objects are often evaluated more extremely than other targets. Our study integrated research on illusory correlation, set size, and salience and explored when and why these salience effects occur. The results indicate that the tendency to evaluate salient targets more extremely is attenuated when the number of targets present in the(More)
We summarize the high-resolution science that has been done on high redshift galaxies with Adaptive Optics (AO) on the world's largest ground-based facilities and with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). These facilities complement each other. Ground-based AO provides better light gathering power and in principle better resolution than HST, giving it the edge(More)
BACKGROUND Improving oral health for Aboriginal Australians has been slow. Despite dental disease being largely preventable, Aboriginal Australians have worse periodontal disease, more decayed teeth and untreated dental caries than other Australians. Reasons for this are complex and risk factors include broader social and historic determinants such as(More)
In this paper, an adaptive torque controller for friction stir welding (FSW) that can estimate parameters such as probe radius which may be changing throughout the welding process is presented. Implementing an adaptive controller with this capability would be of interest to industry sectors in which FSW is performed on high melting point alloys or metal(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate head motion of children of varying levels of motor ability performing an overarm throw towards a forward facing target. Ten ten-year-old children were analysed using three-dimensional veideographic techniques. Angular motion of the head about its three axes was determined with respect to the external reference(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the backward two and one half somersault dive in a tuck position (205C) performed by females (n = 22) and the backward two and one half somersault dive in a pike position (205B) performed by males (n = 27) and by females (n = 6) to determine changes required by females to successfully perform 205B. Video data of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the reverse two and one half somersault dive in a tuck position (305C) performed by females (n = 24), and the reverse two and one half somersault dive in a pike position (305B) performed by males (n = 21), to determine changes required by females to successfully perform 305B. Key performance variables in reverse(More)
