For validly analyzing human visual attention, it is often necessary to proceed from computer-based desktop set-ups to more natural real-world settings. However, the resulting loss of control has to be counterbalanced by increasing participant and/or item count. Together with the effort required to manually annotate the gaze-cursor videos recorded with(More)
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors are widely used as pesticides and drugs. Their primary effect is the overstimulation of cholinergic receptors which results in an improper muscular function. During vertebrate embryonic development nerve activity and intracellular downstream events are critical for the regulation of muscle fiber formation. Whether AChE(More)
— Handling the growing complexity of software is one of the biggest challenges for the software industry. Two common answers to this challenge are: raising the level of abstraction (i. e., reducing complexity) and improving human understanding by improving the organization of software (managing complexity). It is our contention that if one gives developers(More)
Fish embryos are widely used as an alternative model to study toxicity in vertebrates. Due to their complexity, embryos are believed to more resemble an adult organism than in vitro cellular models. However, concerns have been raised with respect to the embryo's metabolic capacity. We recently identified allyl alcohol, an industrial chemical, to be several(More)
For solving complex tasks cooperatively in close interaction with robots, they need to understand natural human communication. To achieve this, robots could benefit from a deeper understanding of the processes that humans use for successful communication. Such skills can be studied by investigating human face-to-face interactions in complex tasks. In our(More)
Software engineering is hampered by the fact that software systems quickly become so complex that they are hard to understand, evolve and maintain. Closer integration of code and model helps, because the model serves as a map to the code and the code fills in the details for the model. Simultaneously, one avoids consistency problems. TUBE, a programming(More)
