PURPOSE The aim of this study was to examine the posterosuperior popliteomeniscal fascicle (sPMF) and anteroinferior popliteomeniscal fascicle (iPMF) by use of magnetic resonance imaging in control knee joints and joints with recurrent subluxation of the lateral meniscus (RSLM) to determine the incidence of abnormal popliteomeniscal fascicles (PMFs) in(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the results of meniscal repair of the medial meniscus with or without decompression of the posterior segment of the medial meniscus for the treatment of posteromedial tibiofemoral incongruence at full flexion (PMTFI), which induces deformation of the posterior segment on sagittal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).(More)
Creativity consists of divergent and convergent thinking, with both related to individual eye blinks at rest. To assess underlying mechanisms between eye blinks and traditional creativity tasks, we investigated the relationship between creativity performance and eye blinks at rest and during tasks. Participants performed an alternative uses and remote(More)
Previous studies have found that Westerners are more likely than East Asians to attend to central objects (i.e., analytic attention), whereas East Asians are more likely than Westerners to focus on background objects or context (i.e., holistic attention). Recently, it has been proposed that the physical environment of a given culture influences the cultural(More)
Visual search asymmetry is a phenomenon in which search efficiency changes in accordance with a swapping target and distractor, and which has been observed with a variety of target types. Previous studies assume that search asymmetry is achieved due to the difference of activation, which is calculated by considering each feature separately (e.g., color,(More)
While some studies suggest cultural differences in visual processing, others do not, possibly because the complexity of their tasks draws upon high-level factors that could obscure such effects. To control for this, we examined cultural differences in visual search for geometric figures, a relatively simple task for which the underlying mechanisms are(More)
Visual search performance is facilitated when fixed spatial configurations are presented repeatedly, an effect known as contextual cueing (Chun & Jiang, 1998). Although a previous study showed that contextual cueing occurred even when objects were jittered (Chun & Jiang, 1998, Experiment 6), it is not clear how variability influences contextual cueing. In(More)
Recent studies have indicated that the object representation acquired during visual learning depends on the encoding modality during the test phase. However, the nature of the differences between within-modal learning (eg visual learning-visual recognition) and cross-modal learning (eg visual learning-haptic recognition) remains unknown. To address this(More)
Implicit learning of visual contexts facilitates search performance-a phenomenon known as contextual cueing; however, little is known about contextual cueing under situations in which multidimensional regularities exist simultaneously. In everyday vision, different information, such as object identity and location, appears simultaneously and interacts with(More)
We can infer a voice of an unfamiliar person from his/her face. One hypothesis attributes this to common information conveyed by voices and faces. However, the nature of this critical information remains unclear (Mavica & Barenholz, 2013). Some recent reports have shown that auditory and visual stimuli, which do not have any direct relations (e.g. music -(More)
