• #### Visual Displays: The Continuing Investigations of the Highlighting Paradox ﻿

(2006)
Previous research has suggested that making certain items visually salient, or highlighting, can speed performance in a visual search task. But designers of interfaces cannot always easily anticipate a user's target, and ...
• #### Visual estimation of structure in ranked data ﻿

(1995)
Ranked data arise when some group of judges is asked to rank order a set of n items according to some preference function. A judge's ranking is denoted by a vector x = $(x\sb1,...,x\sb{n}),$ where $x\sb{i}$ is the rank ...
• #### Visual influences on electrotactile processing: Localizing and sequencing crossmodal interactions ﻿

(2008)
Most research studies on crossmodal processing of visual and tactile modalities have found that vision enhances touch. Nevertheless, it is unclear whether vision increases tactile sensitivity or changes participants' ...
• #### Visual influences on tactile perception: Determining what parameters induce a sustained visual enhancement of touch ﻿

(2004)
Recent research has shown that vision can enhance tactile perception in studies with monkeys, patients, and normal participants. However, relatively few studies have investigated if visual information can systematically ...
• #### Visual perception of shape and area in random dot patterns ﻿

(2007)
I report five experiments in an exploratory study to investigate the perceptual grouping processes by better understanding how a simple pattern of dots comes to be represented in visual memory. Subjects were briefly shown ...
• #### Visual processing in the crayfish medulla ﻿

(1990)
The crayfish visual system consists of a neural network which acts to convey and process sensory information to the brain. One previously established pathway in this network involves a class of visual interneuron known as ...

(1978)
• #### Visual simulation in time ﻿

(1968)
Architectural design has always been limited to static procedures of study. The means of study has a profound effect on the shape and form of the result. The discovery of perspective drawing during the 15th century had a ...
• #### VISUALIZATION AND ANALYSIS OF MURAL THROMBOGENESIS (PLATELET ADHESION, COLLAGEN, POLYURETHANE, DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING) ﻿

(1986)
Epi-fluorescence video microscopy, digital image processing, and photodiode photometry were used to visualize and analyze mural thrombogenesis on collagen coated glass, polyurethane, and nylon surfaces in contact with ...
• #### Visualization of Crude Oil Displacement by Foam Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in Microfluidic Devices ﻿

(2016-04-22)
Foam flooding, as an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process, has become of great interest to the oil industry. However, the mechanism of oil displacement by foam has not been fully understood. This thesis describes the ...
• #### Vittoria says: ﻿

(2003)
vittoria says: "there are days when a table, or chair, or book, or a man are all the same."* is architecture a projection of our desires or are our desires a projection of architecture? looking at godard and loos. both ...
• #### VITURBO: A reconfigurable architecture for ubiquitous wireless networks ﻿

(2003)
A run-time reconfigurable architecture for ubiquitous wireless networks has been designed and implemented. Reconfigurable architectures have the ability to change themselves dynamically thus presenting a viable proposition ...
• #### Vivian Fine's works for violoncello and piano ﻿

(2010)
Vivian Fine (1913-2000), once considered a compositional prodigy by such illustrious composers as Henry Cowell, Aaron Copland, and Ruth Crawford, is nearly forgotten now, only ten years after her death. She has well over ...
• #### Vizer: A framework to analyze and vectorize Intel x86 binaries ﻿

(2003)
Binary optimization has become increasingly important due to the widespread use of legacy programs and the presence of environments that require dynamic optimizers. Although processor technology changes constantly, software ...
• #### Vocational Interest and Its Impact on College-to-Career Trajectory in an 11-Year Longitudinal Study ﻿

(2018-11-29)
This 11-year longitudinal study investigates the effects of vocational interest congruence, personality, and alternative options on college-to-career trajectories over time. Theories of vocational interest suggests that ...
• #### Vocational technical high school, Houston, Texas ﻿

(1992)
This investigation attempts to create an environment that will foster the notion that the creation of an object is not merely a physical act but a mental journey. As architects, we are aware of the lack of separation between ...
• #### Voice and origin in Margaret Atwood's fiction ﻿

(1992)
In contradiction to Lyotard, who posits an equal relationship between listener and speaker in Just Gaming and The Postmodern Condition, Atwood examines the ways in which women's voices are stifled by men's terroristic ...
• #### Void Off Center ﻿

(2011)
This thesis exploits the potentials of the off centered void . While geometric rigidity confines the conventional void , eccentric alignments in Void Off Center escape those defining boundaries. These eccentricities extend ...
• #### Volatile cycling and the thermal evolution of planetary mantle ﻿

(2011)
The thermal histories of terrestrial planets are investigated using two parameterized mantle convection models for either Earth like planets and planets with no active plate tectonics. Using parameterized models of mantle ...
• #### Volcanic rocks of the Rio Cauca Valley, Colombia, S. A ﻿

(1976)
Miocene volcanic and related intrusive rocks have been investigated in the Rio Cauca valley of western Colombia. This valley is formed along the Romeral and related fault zones during tectonic adjustments between the ...
