La c?mara en la animaci?n de arquitectura. Reconsiderando ?la mirada? y el r?gimen de mostraci?n en
Even though inspired by cinema, architecture animations often oversimplify filmic space, and conflate two distinct concepts: gaze, and vision. Such misinterpretation leads to overuse camera movement to present spaces as if the change of point of view would lead to communicate lived space. This article introduces such discussion in the context of the tableau vivant, a living picture, explores the use of the shot sequence and the use of non-narrative scenes.

Role of verb knowledge in sentence comprehension deficits of individuals with Alzheimers Disease and
For the present study, three verb roles (transitivity, thematic role, and subject-verb agreement) were investigated with individuals diagnosed with AD and FTD while using a â real-time,â also known as â on-lineâ , sentence comprehension task. It was hypothesized that AD patients would be insensitive to agreements that are semantic knowledge based (i.e., thematic) and that FTD patients would be insensitive to agreements that are grammatically based (i.e., transitivity).

5.1 The nervous system

Development has so far mostly been assessed in terms of the gross performance, the overt behaviour, of the organism. Relationships have been established between certain environmental events and certain behaviours. In the next three sections, Sections 5 to 7, there is a major shift in emphasis, from considering behaviour to considering the structure of the nervous system. Essentially, this is doing no more than stepping down a level to look at what is going on inside the organism, in particula

The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity.

3.4.5 Sediment loss to agriculture

The trapping of sediment behind dams may also affect agriculture. The Nile Valley, for example, used to flood naturally once a year, and the sediment in the waters was deposited on the land, forming a fertile soil. These floodwaters and the sediment they carry are now trapped behind the Aswan Dam, and artificial fertilizers must be used down river in the valley. Without the yearly supply of sediment in floodwater, the banks of the Nile are eroding downstream of the dam, and the Nile delta is
