    • Object-based attention with endogenous cuing and positional certainty 

      Chen, Z.; Cave, K.R. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2008)
      Previous studies have concluded that object-based attention does not always arise if attention is cued endogenously (Macquistan, 1997) or if the target location is known with certainty (Shomstein & Yantis, 2002). In the ...
    • An object-based cost of visual filtering 

      Chen, Z. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2000)
      Although evidence for object-based attention has been reported in a variety of paradigms, few studies have examined directly the relationship between the processing efficiency of the targets and the number of ...

    • The observational roots of reference of the semantic web 

      Scheider S; Janowicz K; Adams BT (2012)
      Shared reference is an essential aspect of meaning. It is also indispensable for the semantic web, since it enables to weave the global graph, i.e., it allows different users to contribute to an identical referent. For ...
    • Observations and inhomogeneity in cosmology 

      Smale, Peter Rich (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2012)
      We interpret distance measurements from nearby galaxies, type Ia supernovae, and gamma-ray bursts in the light of a cosmological model that incorporates a spatial averaging technique to account for the inhomogeneous ...
