—While looking at a point in the scene, humans continually perform smooth eye movements to compensate for involuntary head rotations. Since the optical nodal points of the eyes do not lie on the head rotation axes, this behavior yields useful 3-D information in the form of visual parallax. Here, we describe the replication of this behavior in a humanoid(More)
BACKGROUND Many women throughout the world have history of subfertility (resolved or unresolved), but much remains unknown about services and treatments chosen. METHODS We developed a mixed-mode fertility experiences questionnaire (FEQ) in 2009 through literature review and iterative pilot work to optimize question format and mode of administration.

As expensive as 3D seismic reflection surveys are, their high cost is justified by improved imaging of certain ore horizons in some of the Witwatersrand basin gold mines. The merged historical 3D seismic reflection data acquired for Kloof and South Deep mines forms an integral part of their Ventersdorp Contact Reef mine planning and development programme.(More)
Background: The sperm penetration assay (SPA) is used to predict the fertilizing capacity of sperm. Thus, some programs rely on SPA scores to formulate insemination plans in conjunction with in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if a relationship exists between SPA scores and polyspermy rates during conventional IVF(More)
