In dieser Studie wird der Attentional Blink repliziert. 104 Versuchspersonen sollten in einer schnellen aufeinanderfolgenden visuellen Präsentation von Buchstaben einen teilweise definierten Buchstaben (Target) identifizieren und dann die An- oder Abwesenheit eines vollständig definierten Buchstaben (Probe) bestimmen. Die Psychologiestudenten führten die Versuchsreihe in Räumen der Universität durch, in denen mehrere Computer zur Verfügung standen. Die übrigen Teilnehmer nahmen einzeln in ruhiger, häuslicher Umgebung an der Versuchsreihe teil. Insgesamt gab es zehn Versuchsleiter. Das Experiment wurde zur Überprüfung der Deutlichkeit der Instruktionen in Probedurchgängen mit freiwilligen Testpersonen, die hinterher nicht mehr am fertigen Experiment teilnahmen, getestet. Zusätzlich konnten durch zahlreiche Selbstversuche auch technische Probleme ausgeschlossen werden. Das Experiment wurde aus ökonomischen Gründen zusammen mit drei anderen Experimenten zu einer Versuchsreihe zusammengefügt. Die Durchführung der Untersuchung erfolgte vollständig computergestützt. Wie bei der Untersuchung von Raymond et al. (1992) wurde ein experimentelles Versuchsdesign mit Messwiederholungen benutzt. Jede Versuchsperson wurde auf jeder Position des Probes getestet.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Personal und Organisation, Note: 1,7, Hochschule Bochum, Veranstaltung: Internationale Personalfuhrung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der heutigen Zeit lernen wir bereits in der Schule aber auch in den weiteren Lebensabschnitten wahrend des Studiums oder im Berufsalltag, dass wir rationale Entscheidungen betrachten und auf diese vertrauen mussen. Die Arbeit zeigt auf, dass trotz dieses Denkens die meisten Entscheidungen intuitiv auf einer geringen Anzahl von Informationen getroffen werden. Der empirische Teil untersucht inwieweit unsere Intuition vor rationalen Entscheidungen genutzt wird, insbesondere bei Beschaftigten mit Kundenkontakt."

"In Mexiko hatte sie den Orientierungssinn von Ameisen studiert. Cataglyphis waren GPS-Wunder, die unfehlbar den Weg zum Nesteingang fanden, egal wie weit sie sich davon entfernt hatten. Mary beneidete sie. Wegen ihrer mathematischen Wahrnehmung und weil sie keinen Egoismus kannten. Das war es, was Ameisen allen anderen Wesen überlegen machte. Das Fehlen von Egoismus. Kein Wunder. Ameisen waren weiblich. Die wahre Schwesternschaft. Männchen lieferten nur die Gene. Kein schlechtes Modell, dachte Mary, öffnete die Augen und lief weiter." Marc Buhl erzählt in seinem sechsten Roman in harten und emotional tief berührenden Szenen den ewigen Traum vom perfekten Menschengeschöpf, das heute nicht mehr Frankensteins Monster heißt, sondern in einem allwissenden NSA-Computer lebt, der ungleich brutaler und rücksichtsloser gegen seine Schöpferin zu Felde zieht.

Each event centers around action and reaction, sometimes resulting in fatal solutions. This story is designed to be entertaining as well as informative. It will leave the reader with a new perspective the next time he sees a police car racing down his streets with the lights and siren blazing.

In the Blink of an Eye is editor Walter Murch's essay of film editing. Starting with what might seem to be the most basic editing question - Why do cuts work? - he treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and real life; the criteria of a good cut; and the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut. New to this second edition is Murch's lengthy meditation on the current state of digital editing.

West is a high school senior who has everything going for him - until an accident leaves him paralysed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, moving in and out of consciousness, West is isolated and alone. Until he meets Olivia. Olivia is the girl next door - though not the typical girl next door. She is in the hospital room next to his, and before long, she's sneaking into his room to talk with him. Only Olivia seems to know what he's thinking, and even dreaming about. Yet certain questions haunt him: Why is Olivia in the hospital? And how is she connected to the terrible dreams he's been having? But the biggest shock of all comes when West must face the possibility that the girl he's fallen in love with - and who's done more to aid his recovery than anyone else - may not even be alive.

It is America's worst nightmare: A nuclear bomb destroys a major city. Thousands of Americans are dead and many more will die from radiation poisoning. Threats promising more attacks spread through the media. Panic has broken out in many cities. How could American intelligence have failed to detect a nuclear device? Who is responsible for the blast? Sean Falcone, national security advisor, is tasked with identifying and tracking down the attackers. Powerful forces within the Capital point the finger at Iran. But appearances are always deceiving, and never more so than when millions of innocent people may die for a crime they did not commit. With the potential to incite the entire Muslim world against America and bring the world to the brink of Armageddon, Falcone discovers an astonishing secret hidden deep within the upper echelons of Washington's elite...but why should the President—or the American people—believe him? Pulling from years of international affairs and defense planning experience, the former Secretary of Defense under Bill Clinton creates a sweeping, all-too-real political thriller. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In the four decades since his first book appeared in print, Terry Pratchett has become one of the world’s best-selling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short form fiction collected into one volume. A Blink of the Screen charts the course of Pratchett’s long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press,; to the origins of his debut novel, The Carpet People; and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful Discworld series. Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered; abandoned worlds and others still expanding; adventure, chickens, death, disco and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas,all of it shot through with his inimitable brand of humour. With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt, illustrations by the late Josh Kirby and drawings by the author himself, this is a book to treasure.
