There is growing evidence that face recognition is "special" but less certainty concerning the way in which it is special. The authors review and compare previous proposals and their own more recent hypothesis, that faces are recognized "holistically" (i.e., using relatively less part decomposition than other types of objects). This hypothesis, which can(More)
Abstract By simulating neglect-like effects in neurologically intact observers, we evaluated whether normal attentional allocation can be object centered. In a series of three experiments, observers detected a small gap on the left or right side of a configuration presented in either the left of right visual field. The figures were positioned so that on(More)
In a study of right-parietal patients, Behrmann and Moscovitch [Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Vol. 6, pp.1-16, 1994] found object-centered left neglect for asymmetrical but not symmetrical letters, leading them to attribute this neglect to the objects' canonical handedness or intrinsic asymmetry. Using a similar task, we find the same results in(More)
Unilateral neglect may be due to attentional bias: an exaggerated tendency to orient in an ipsilesional direction. Likewise, cases of vertical neglect suggest the existence of vertical attentional biases. This article reports evidence of upward biases in neurologically intact observers. In 5 experiments, observers performed a visual line-bisection task by(More)
This paper describes the Mind Controlled Robot based on Brain Computer Interface (BCI) using LabVIEW to analysis the brain waves. BCIs are systems that may bypass typical channels of communication (i. e. , muscles and thoughts) to supply direct communication and management between the human brain and physical devices by translating different patterns of(More)
Non-NMDA ionotropic receptor channels were longtime thought to be impermeable to calcium. There is now increasing evidence that this is not a general feature. Neural cells bearing non-NMDA receptors permeable to divalent cations can be found not only in the adult CNS, but also at surprisingly early stages of development (well before the onset of(More)
This study examines elderly and advanced elderly inpatients' perceptions of acute care service quality, prioritises opportunities for quality improvement, and assesses variation in patients' satisfaction with care. Psychometrically-validated postal questionnaires were sent to random samplings of patients discharged from the US acute care facilities in 2002(More)
