  1. 1. Investigations of neural attractor dynamics in human visual awareness

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : David N. Silverstein; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; attractor dynamics; visual awareness; visual perception; visual attention; attentional blink; backward masking; gliomas; brain tumor; white matter; cell assemblies; neocortical model; threat response; fear signaling; amygdala; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics; Datalogi; Computer Science; Tillämpad matematik och beräkningsmatematik; Applied and Computational Mathematics;

    Abstract : What we see, how we see it and what emotions may arise from stimuli has long been studied by philosophers, psychologists, medical doctors and neuroscientists. This thesis work investigates a particular view on the possible dynamics, utilizing computational models of spiking neural attractor networks. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interactive Perception From Scenes to Objects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Niklas Bergström; KTH.; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis builds on the observation that robots, like humans, do not have enough experience to handle all situations from the start. Therefore they need tools to cope with new situations, unknown scenes and unknown objects. In particular, this thesis addresses objects. READ MORE

  3. 3. The perception of actions and interactions And the importance of context

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joshua Juvrud; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; action understanding; action perception; motion; perception; context; environment; eye-tracking; pupil dilation; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The perception of actions and interactions is a dynamic process linked with perceptual processes, the internal and external states of the individual, prior experiences, and the immediate environment. Given these differential contexts, it is very likely there are differences in how infants perceive, interpret, and respond to actions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human response to wind turbine noise perception, annoyance and moderating factors

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Institute of Medicine, The Sahlgrenska Academy, Göteborg University

    Author : Eja Pedersen; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Noise; Environmental exposure; Wind; Audio-visual interaction; Low-level noise exposure; wind turbines; noise annoyance; sound perception; audio-visual interaction; low-level noise exposure;

    Abstract : Aims: The aims of this thesis were to describe and gain an understanding of how people who live in the vicinity of wind turbines are affected by wind turbine noise, and how individual, situational and visual factors, as well as sound properties, moderate the response.Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out in a flat, mainly rural area in Sweden, with the objective to estimate the prevalence of noise annoyance and to examine the dose-response relationship between A-weighted sound pressure levels (SPLs) and perception of and annoyance with wind turbine noise.

  5. 5. Body-ownership and visual perception

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Björn van der Hoort; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The idea that our body plays an important role in visual perception has a long history in storytelling and philosophy. Some ideas are very intuitive. For example, few will disagree with the notion that smaller people perceive the world to be bigger, and vice versa, that larger people perceive the world to be smaller. READ MORE
