Life span developmental profiles were constructed for 305 participants (ages 4-95) for a battery of paced and unpaced perceptual-motor timing tasks that included synchronize-continue tapping at a wide range of target event rates. Two life span hypotheses, derived from an entrainment theory of timing and event tracking, were tested. A preferred period(More)
This article continues a line of research examining factors affecting listeners' auditory tempo sensitivities. Of particular interest is the question of whether listeners are sensitive to the overall (global) pace of their auditory environment and how this sensitivity may affect their perceptions of sequence timing. To address this question, we manipulated(More)
Factors affecting tempo sensitivity in isochronous tone sequences were investigated in two experiments. Participants listened to tones in sequence conditions in which the number of time intervals in isochronous standard and comparison sequences was varied, and they were asked to judge the tempo of the comparison relative to the standard. When the duration(More)
We ask what kinds of sources Wikipedians value most and compare Wikipedia's stated policy on sources to what we observe in practice. We find that primary data sources developed by alternative publishers are both popular and persistent, despite policies that present such sources as inferior to scholarly secondary sources. We also find that Wikipedians make(More)
In this paper, it is shown that the problem of deciding whether or not a geometric diagram in Euclidean Geometry is satisfiable is NP-hard and in PSPACE, and in fact has the same complexity as the satisfaction problem for a fragment of the exis-tential theory of the real numbers. The related problem of finding all of the possible (satisfiable) diagrams that(More)
The basal ganglia are thought to play a critical role in duration perception and production. However, experimental evidence for impaired temporal processing in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients is mixed. This study examined the association between striatal dopaminergic denervation in PD patients and sensorimotor synchronization. Twenty-eight(More)
The fabrication process for well-ordered nanopillars over large substrate areas, which are taller than 100nm, have aspect ratios as high as 10 : 1 and occur with a periodicity of less than 35nm is described. Various unique aspects of the materials and processing techniques enabled key features of the nanostructures: block copolymer lithography facilitated(More)
