2020 Town and Regional Planning  
All our senses are awakened, invited to take the site in, to touch the space in many ways. To be there is a multi-dimensional experience.  ...  The index was tested on four public spaces in Tampa and the results are displayed in a pictorial pentagon.  ...

The ontogeny of multisensory peripersonal space in human infancy: From visual-tactile links to conscious expectations [article]

Giulia Orioli, Irene Parisi, Jose L. van Velzen, Andrew J. Bremner
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
We presented 4- (n = 20) and 8-month-old (n = 20) infants with an unattended visual object moving towards or away from their body followed by a vibrotactile stimulus on their hands.  ...  These findings provide important clues to the ontogeny of human self-awareness in the first year of life, and suggest important postnatal developments in infants' expectations about interactions between  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to our participants and their parents, for their invaluable contribution.

Exploring motion VEPs for gaze-independent communication

Sulamith Schaeff, Matthias Sebastian Treder, Bastian Venthur, Benjamin Blankertz
2012 Journal of Neural Engineering  
Growing receptive eld sizes and decreasing cortical magnication with increasing eccentricities have long been recognized to reduce visual acuity in peripheral regions [14, 15] .  ...  We used a conventional speller layout wherein the possible selections are presented at dierent spatial locations both in overt attention mode (xation of the target) and covert attention mode (central xation  ...  Funding agencies are not liable for any use that may be made of the information contained herein  ...

Motivationally significant stimuli show visual prior entry: Evidence for attentional capture

Greg L. West, Adam A. K. Anderson, Jay Pratt
2009 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
This study provides direct evidence of the extent to which motivationally significant stimuli capture attention over other concurrently displayed items in the visual array.  ...  ; thus, this method is a sensitive and direct measure of the time course of initial attentional deployment.  ...  to perceive objects in the unattended field) more so than shapes, suggesting that these items demand attention over others.  ...

Abstracts of the 20th European Conference on Eye Movements, 18-22 August 2019, in Alicante (Spain)

Susana Martinez-Conde, Luis Martinez-Otero, Albert Compte, Rudolf Groner
2019 Journal of Eye Movement Research  
This document contains all abstracts of the 20th European Conference on Eye Movements, August 18-22, 2019, in Alicante, Spain Video stream "Glimpses at 20th ECEM": https://vimeo.com/user43478756.  ...  Higher dopamine levels led to faster simple reaction times but not choice reaction times and a trend towards higher reward sensitivity was observed. Data collection is currently ongoing.  ...  Reward was calculated as a fraction of the maximum depending on the performance (accuracy and speed).  ...

Extending Gurwitsch's field theory of consciousness

Jeff Yoshimi, David W. Vinson
2015 Consciousness and Cognition  
On Gurwitsch's account, as we develop it, the field of consciousness has a variable sized focus or "theme" of attention surrounded by a structured periphery of inattentional contents.  ...  Aron Gurwitsch's theory of the structure and dynamics of consciousness has much to offer contemporary theorizing about consciousness and its basis in the embodied brain.  ...  We are especially grateful to Bruce Mangan for his detailed suggestions and close reading of several earlier drafts.  ...

High responsivity to threat during the initial stage of perception in repression: a 3 T fMRI study

Victoria Gabriele Paul, Astrid Veronika Rauch, Harald Kugel, Lena ter Horst, Jochen Bauer, Udo Dannlowski, Patricia Ohrmann, Christian Lindner, Uta-Susan Donges, Anette Kersting, Boris Egloff, Thomas Suslow
2011 Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience  
There was no brain region in which sensitizers showed increased activation to emotion expression compared to repressors.  ...  The present results are in line with the vigilance-avoidance theory which predicts heightened automatic responsivity to threatening stimuli in repression.  ...  In this way, we intended to investigate a very early stage of information processing in the brain in repression and sensitization and to control subjects' ability to consciously detect masked facial expression  ...

Perceptually Guided Corrective Splatting

Jorg Haber, Karol Myszkowski, Hitoshi Yamauchi, Hans-Peter Seidel
2001 Computer graphics forum (Print)  
We address this problem by enforcing corrective computation for those non-diffuse objects that are selected using a computational model of visual attention.  ...  We consider both the saliency-and task-driven selection of those objects and benefit from the fact that shading artifacts of "unattended" objects are likely to remain unnoticed.  ...  Visual attention is an important means to adjust this amount of information to a manageable size. ing information in a selected region of the viewed scene.  ...

2021 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
However, in this study vMMN emerged only in the older group to same-age deviants.  ...  According to the results, a regular sequence of models' age is automatically registered, and faces violating the models' age elicited the vMMN component.  ...  On the contrary, in the present study the faces were outside the focus of attention, therefore the faces were not only task-irrelevant, but they were also “unattended.”  ...
