No Longer Unmeasurable? A Multidimensional Integrated Model of Nonprofit Organizational Effectiveness

Jessica E. Sowa, Sally Coleman Selden, Jodi R. Sandfort
2004 Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly  
In this article, we introduce a multidimensional and integrated model of nonprofit organizational effectiveness (MIMNOE).  ...  In addition, to illustrate how this framework can be used empirically, the article proposes a method of analysis that exploits the interrelationships between the multiple dimensions in the model.  ...  Multilevel structural equation models, however, combine the full strength of SEM with multilevel or hierarchical modeling because they allow for estimation of multilevel path analysis wherein within-group-level  ...

PD therefore provides an attractive framework to explore the relative contributions of bottom-up versus top-down disturbances in hallucinations.  ...  We integrate these results with current models of hallucinations, suggesting that slow and inefficient sensory input in PD is less informative, and may therefore be down-weighted leading to an over reliance  ...  Figure legends Figure 5 Title -Within group comparisons of drift rates and decision boundaries .

Enhanced Perceptual Functioning in Autism: An Update, and Eight Principles of Autistic Perception

Laurent Mottron, Michelle Dawson, Isabelle Soulières, Benedicte Hubert, Jake Burack
2006 Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders  
Increased perceptual expertise may be implicated in the choice of special ability in savant autistics, and in the variability of apparent presentations within PDD (autism with and without typical speech  ...  We propose an "Enhanced Perceptual Functioning" model encompassing the main differences between autistic and non-autistic social and non-social perceptual processing: locally oriented visual and auditory  ...  In this framework, the apparent local bias was not the result of a preference or an integration deficit, but the result, because local features are more numerous than global features, of non-hierarchical  ...

An Automatic Cognitive Graph-Based Segmentation for Detection of Blood Vessels in Retinal Images

Rasha Al Shehhi, Prashanth Reddy Marpu, Wei Lee Woon
2016 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
The segmentation framework consists of two main steps: preprocessing and multiscale graph-based segmentation.  ...  This segmentation employs some of perceptual Gestalt principles: similarity, closure, continuity, and proximity to merge segments into coherent connected vessel-like patterns.  ...  The integration of perceptual Gestalt principles into graph-based segmentation, from computational view, is an important stage to reduce required visual processes to interpret an input image by converting  ...

Missing the big picture: impaired development of global shape processing in autism

K. Suzanne Scherf, Beatriz Luna, Ruth Kimchi, Nancy Minshew, Marlene Behrmann
2008 Autism Research  
Individuals with autism exhibit hypersensitivity to local elements of the input, which may interfere with the ability to group visual elements perceptually.  ...  We investigated the development of perceptual grouping abilities in highfunctioning individuals with autism (HFA) across a wide age range (8-30 years) using a classic compound letter global/ local (GL)  ...  of Excellence in Autism (PI: Nancy Minshew), and T32 HD049354 to Ron Dahl and Robert Noll, as well as a post-doctoral fellowship from the National Alliance for Autism Research to K.  ...

Empirical identification of perceptual criteria for customer-centred design. Focus on the sound of tapping on the dashboard when exploring a car

François Montignies, Valery Nosulenko, Etienne Parizet
2010 International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics  
To identify which perceptual criteria are really relevant for customer centred design, an empirical observation of customers exploring vehicles was set-up.  ...  These ones can be used by Renault to identify pertinent perceptual criteria to include in a customer-centred design process.  ...  Description Descriptive qualities bring to light the integration process of sensorial invariants, the perceptual trigger that permits the discrimination and identification of an object.  ...

Sub-Optimal Learning of Tactile-Spatial Predictions in Patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome [article]

Christopher A Brown, Ingrid Scholtes, Nicholas Shenker, Michael C Lee
2019 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
Here, we employed a hierarchical Bayesian model of predictive coding to investigate statistical learning of tactile-spatial predictions in CRPS.  ...  However, the hierarchical organisation of the brain is such that low-level sensory processing can be dynamically influenced by higher-level knowledge, e.g. knowledge learnt from statistical regularities  ...  There was an average age difference between 8 groups with medians of 57 (CRPS) and 40.5 (HC).  ...

Bias and discriminability during emotional signal detection in melancholic depression

Matthew Hyett, Gordon Parker, Michael Breakspear
2014 BMC Psychiatry  
We employed hierarchical Bayesian signal detection theory (SDT) to model psychometric performance across three equal groups of those with melancholic depression, those with a non-melancholic depression  ...  Whilst informative, such an approach may miss deeper perceptual and inferential mechanisms that potentially unify apparently divergent emotional and cognitive deficits.  ...  The views expressed are those of the authors and not those of the granting bodies. The authors wish to thank those who have made useful comments during preparation of this manuscript.  ...
