Nuryadin, Bebeh Wahid; Nuryantini, Ade Yeti; Ramdhani, Muhammad Ali – Physics Education, 2018
A low-cost solar simulator using a LCD projector as a light source has been developed and tested successfully. The prepared simulator has an illumination spectral at the visible light region and is controllable using a computer. The prepared simulator with controllable spectral filter was used to utilize the current-voltage (I-V) measurement for…

Grove, Matt – Intelligence, 2012
Many explanations have been proposed for the evolution of our anomalously large brains, including social, ecological, and epiphenomenal hypotheses. Recently, an additional hypothesis has emerged, suggesting that advanced cognition and, by inference, increases in brain size, have been driven over evolutionary time by the need to deal with…
