9.35 Sensation And Perception (MIT) 9.35 Sensation And Perception (MIT)

Description

This course provides an introduction to important philosophical questions about the mind, specifically those that are intimately connected with contemporary psychology and neuroscience. Are our concepts innate, or are they acquired by experience? (And what does it even mean to call a concept 'innate'?) Are 'mental images' pictures in the head? Is color in the mind or in the world? Is the mind nothing more than the brain? Can there be a science of consciousness? The course will include guest lectures by Professors.

9.036 The Visual System (MIT) 9.036 The Visual System (MIT)

Description

In this seminar anatomical, neurophysiological, imaging and behavioral research will be examined in an attempt to gain a better understanding of how information is processed in the primate visual system. The first five sessions provide an overview of the functional and structural organization of the visual system with a critical examination of some of the basic issues in the field. Thereafter the emphasis will shift to the question of how various aspects of the visual scene are processed in the visual system. We will study color vision, adaptation, the role of eye movements in carrying out visual analysis, motion perception, depth perception and pattern perception.

Launch of half the 'Vardefjell'

Description

Launch of the forepart of the ?Vardefjell? by Sir James Laing & Sons Ltd, 27 March 1944. This was later joined to the salvaged aft part on the River Tyne. The original forepart was lost at sea in December 1942, when the vessel was serving as part of an Atlantic convoy (TWAM ref. DS.LG/4/PH/3/2 pg30). Fur further information see www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/remembering-sunderlands-.... Tyne & Wear Archives is proud to present a selection of images from its Sunderland shipbuilding collections. The set has been produced to celebrate Sunderland History Fair on 7 June 2014. It's a reminder of the thousands of vessels launched on the River Wear and the many outstanding achievements of Sunderland?s shipyards and their workers. These photographs reflect Sunderland?s history of innovation in shipbuilding and marine engineering from the development of turret ships in the 1890s through to the design for SD14s in the 1960s. The Sunderland shipbuilding collections are full of fascinating stories. Some of these are represented in this set, such as the ?Rondefjell?, launched in two halves on the River Wear by John Crown & Sons Ltd and then joined together on the River Tyne. The set also shows the vital part that Sunderland?s shipbuilding industry played during the First World War. William Doxford & Sons Ltd built Royal Naval destroyers such as HMS Opal, which served in the Battle of Jutland, while other yards constructed cargo ships to help keep these shores supplied.

U-Boat 110, the Torpedo Room showing an overhead arrangement

Description

This photograph shows the U-Boat 110, a German Submarine that was sunk and risen in 1918. This photograph shows the Submarine's forward Torpedo Room. Reference: DS.SWH/5/3/2/14/1/9 This image is taken from an album of photographs found in the Swan Hunter shipbuilders collection at Tyne & Wear Archives. The album is from 1918 and documents the U.B. 110 before she was scrapped on the dry docks of Swan Hunter Wigham Richardson Ltd, Wallsend. The twin-screw German submarine U.B. 110 was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg. On the 19th July 1918, when attacking a convoy of merchant ships near Hartlepool, she herself was attacked by H.M. Motor-Launch No. 263 and suffered from depth charges. Coming to the surface she was rammed by H.M.S. Garry, a torpedo boat destroyer, and sunk. In September she was salvaged and placed in the admiralty dock off Jarrow slake. She was then berthed at Swan Hunter's dry docks department with an order to restore her as a fighting unit. The Armistice on 11th November 1918 caused work on her to be stopped. She was towed on the 19th December 1918 from Wallsend to the Northumberland Dock at Howdon and was subsequently sold as scrap. The album of photographs, taken by Frank & Sons of South Shields, documents the U.B. 110 in extensive detail. The photographs provide a rare glimpse into the mechanics and atmosphere of the raised German submarine. More images of the U-Boat 110 can be viewed here.

How digital camera images are formed

Description

This resource is a learning object designed for Level 3 students of General art and design. It illustrates the key concepts surrounding the formation of digital images. It explains what digital images are and the fundamental elements that they consist of. It shows how colour depth, resolution and format all affect the image and allows the user to change attributes and view results. It also covers the concepts of image size in relation to resolution and the effects of image manipulation. The learning objects may be used as part of a group classroom activity, or as part of the individual study programme of the learner. The content of the objects has been designed to apply equally to the English (Level 3) and Scottish (Highers) General art and design curricula.
