6 Concluding thoughts

We seem to have come a long way and covered a great deal of ground since I approached this subject by explaining that a mechanism must exist to help us focus on one sound out of many. That clearly is one function of attention, but attention seems to have other functions too. The results of visual search experiments show that attention is a vital factor in joining together the features that make up an object, and the experiences of brain-damaged patients suggest that this feature-assembly role

3.3 Non-target effects

Treisman's feature integration theory has been very influential, but it does not appear to explain all experimental observations, and there have been alternative accounts of the feature-binding process. Duncan and Humphreys (1989) reported effects which do not fit too well within the basic Treisman account. They required participants to search for the letter ‘L’ (the target) within a number of ‘Ts’ (the non-targets). You may get a feel for the relative difficulty of d

Some Dinosaur Groups Diminishing Before Mass Extinction: Live Chat with Museum Scientists
On May 10, the American Museum of Natural History and Wired Science hosted a live webcast discussion about new research on dinosaur extinction. The study shows that some dinosaur groups were already on the decline around the time an asteroid hit at the end of the Cretaceous. Brandon Keim, an associate editor at Wired Science, moderated the discussion with two of the paper's co-authors: Mark Norell, chair of the Museum's Division of Paleontology, and Steve Brusatte, a Columbia University graduat

7.3.3 Plasmas

More control can be achieved in vapour deposition if a plasma is generated. A plasma is simply a gas where a proportion of the molecules have been ionised. The ions remain in an uneasy equilibrium with the electrons they have released, prevented from recombining only because the electrons are hot and fast-moving, and so are difficult to trap.

Plasmas are widely used in materials processing, with pressure ranging from 10−3 mbar to 1 mbar and typically up to 1% of the molecul
