Feng, Manni; Sun, Dan; Zhang, Ye – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2021
It hasn't been clear how holistic and analytic processing contribute to character recognition yet. The current study focused on two issues: (1) whether configural processing is sufficient to support the performance of identifying characters in absence of analytic processing; (2) whether configural processing involves multiple levels of character…

Silveira, M. V.; Barthem, R. B.; Santos, A. C. F. – Physics Education, 2020
This work presents an experiment that seeks to simulate human color vision through electronic components in an attempt to build, together with the students, a cybernetic 'eye'. The limitation of the cybernetic eye developed here in relation to the standard human chromatic vision, which makes it a 'colorblind eye', is an argument to be explored by…

McClendon, Susan; Zeni, Mary Beth – Journal of School Nursing, 2020
Vision plays a key role in a child's development. Early detection and treatment of vision abnormalities decreases future complications. Follow-up vision care is a common problem. Barriers to vision care include financial cost, lack of insurance knowledge to cover costs, and disbelief of vision results. The purpose of this evidence-based pilot…

Varela, Fernando – Hispania, 2020
A central theme throughout Machado de Assis's works is the way characters look at each other inside and outside houses. This article argues that vision, race, and houses define his narrative strategies in the short stories "Pai contra Mãe" and "O Caso da Vara," and the novels "Dom Casmurro," "Memórias póstumas de…

Connors, Elyse M.; McMahon, John M.; Lee, Helen – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2020
Introduction: One way to understand a profession is to examine the job tasks undertaken by professionals within the field. The profession of vision rehabilitation therapy is examined by finding the frequency at which 100 specific job tasks are performed on average by current vision rehabilitation therapists (VRTs). Fifty-one of the job task…

Wainman, Bruce; Pukas, Giancarlo; Wolak, Liliana; Mohanraj, Sylvia; Lamb, Jason; Norman, Geoffrey R. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Anatomy education has been revolutionized through digital media, resulting in major advances in realism, portability, scalability, and user satisfaction. However, while such approaches may well be more portable, realistic, or satisfying than traditional photographic presentations, it is less clear that they have any superiority in terms of student…

Fisher, Kevin M.; Fairbrother, Jeffrey T. – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2020
Purpose: Golf coaches may recommend "blind" putting drills in which golfers close their eyes to improve their feel. Research on specificity of learning suggests, however, that adding or removing a source of sensory information after practicing under differing circumstances can cause performance decrements. Specificity of learning is also…

Connors, Elyse; Lee, Helen – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2020
Introduction: Vision rehabilitation therapists (VRTs) carry out many specific job tasks. This study seeks to better understand the VRT profession by organizing many tasks into a few specific roles in which VRT practitioners are involved. Methods: Using the results of the 2017 online survey, a principle component analysis was carried out to extract…

Constable, Paul A.; Ritvo, Edward R.; Ritvo, Ariella R.; Lee, Irene O.; McNair, Morgan L.; Stahl, Dylan; Sowden, Jane; Quinn, Stephen; Skuse, David H.; Thompson, Dorothy A.; McPartland, James C. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Light-adapted (LA) electroretinograms (ERGs) from 90 individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), mean age (13.0 ± 4.2), were compared to 87 control subjects, mean age (13.8 ± 4.8). LA-ERGs were produced by a random series of nine different Troland based, full-field flash strengths and the ISCEV standard flash at 2/s on a 30 cd m[superscript…

Lillie, Madelynn A.; Tiger, Jeffrey H. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Previous researchers have taught sighted adults to match braille sample stimuli to print comparisons in a matching-to-sample (MTS) format and assessed the emergence of other braille repertoires, such as transcribing and reading braille following this training. Although participants learned to match to sample with braille, they displayed limited…

Shaqiri, Albulena; Pilz, Karin S.; Cretenoud, Aline F.; Neumann, Konrad; Clarke, Aaron; Kunchulia, Marina; Herzog, Michael H. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
The world's population is aging at an increasing rate. Even in the absence of neurodegenerative disorders, healthy aging affects perception and cognition. In the context of cognition, common factors are well established. Much less is known about common factors for vision. Here, we tested 92 healthy older and 104 healthy younger participants in 19…

Wu, Jiamin; Chan, John S. Y.; Yan, Jin H. – Developmental Science, 2019
We examined the developmental differences in motor control and learning of a two-segment movement. One hundred and five participants (53 female) were divided into three age groups (7-8 years, 9-10 years and 19-27 years). They performed a two-segment movement task in four conditions (full vision, fully disturbed vision, disturbed vision in the…

John, Merlin; Molepo, Jacob Maisha; Chirwa, Max – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2018
Background: The development of context-based science curricula has been identified as one of the most effective curricular innovations to develop interest and better conceptual understanding of many areas in science. However, such a curriculum can be more fruitful if it starts with the assessment of learners' contextualized knowledge about the…

Long, Joseph J.; Butchart, Maggie; Brown, Michael; Bain, Janice; McMillan, Anne; Karatzias, Thanos – Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2018
Background: The research reported here sought to evaluate whether a dedicated education programme in vision awareness improved the knowledge and skills of autism support practitioners in identifying visual impairment in autistic people with intellectual disabilities and providing better support to those individuals identified as visually impaired.…
