When grasping an object, our gaze marks key positions to which the fingertips are directed. In contrast, eye fixations during perceptual tasks are typically concentrated on an object’s centre of mass (COM). However, previous studies have typically required subjects to either grasp the object at predetermined sites or just look at computer-generated shapes(More)
The development of noninvasive neuroimaging techniques, such as fMRI, has rapidly advanced our understanding of the neural systems underlying the integration of visual and motor information. However, the fMRI experimental design is restricted by several environmental elements, such as the presence of the magnetic field and the restricted view of the(More)
BACKGROUND With current emphasis on leadership in medicine, this study explores Goleman's leadership styles of medical education leaders at different hierarchical levels and gain insight into factors that contribute to the appropriateness of practices. METHODS Forty two leaders (28 first-level with limited formal authority, eight middle-level with wider(More)
Recent experiments examining where participants look when grasping an object found that fixations favor the eventual index finger landing position on the object. Even though the act of picking up an object must involve complex high-level computations such as the visual analysis of object contours, surface properties, knowledge of an object's function and(More)
BACKGROUND The Night Float system (NFS) is often used in residency training programs to meet work hour regulations. The purpose of this study was to examine resident and attendings' perceptions of the NFS on issues of resident learning, well-being, work, non-educational activities and the health care system (patient safety and quality of care,(More)
Learned associations between object properties, such as weight and size, allow for quick and accurate manipulations of objects that we encounter repeatedly. This integration of learned sensory information reduces the overall computational load of our visuomotor system when interacting with familiar objects. In the laboratory, even novel associations can be(More)
