Vestibular nucleus units responding to translational self-motion are shown to respond also to translational movement of a large visual field. These visual-vestibular interactions in otolith-dependent units are similar to those found in canal-related units and could provide the basis for linearvection.
We present a practical implementation of a variation of the Turing Test for realistic computer graphics. The test determines whether virtual representations of objects appear as real as genuine objects. Two experiments were conducted wherein a real object and a similar virtual object is presented to test subjects under specific restrictions. A criterion for… (More)

They found that the student passed the final oral examination. iv ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First of all, I am grateful to my advisor Dr. Darryl Butt for his invaluable… (More)
height. Assuming a linear relationship between thickness and absorption, as well as assuming a direct relationship between absorption and emission, the fluorescence signal, measured by NSOM, is expected to increase by the same percentage. The increase in fluorescence between the tallest feature and the background signal of 13 kcps is 13 kcps. Although this… (More)
