    • Identifying visual targets amongst interfering distractors: Sorting out the roles of perceptual load, dilution, and attentional zoom 

      Cave, K.R.; Chen, Z. (University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2016)
      Visual selection is imperfect; whenever a complex array of objects is processed, representations of multiple objects are likely to be active simultaneously. A full account of attentional processing must explain how these ...
    • Identity and semantic negative priming in rapid serial visual presentation streams 

      Li L; Neumann E; Chen Z (2017)
      In selective attention tasks, the efficiency of processing concurrently presented target and distractor stimuli in a given display is often influenced by the relationship these stimuli have with those in the previous ...
    • Immobilisation of tobacco etch virus (TEV) protease on a high surface area protein nanofibril scaffold. 

      Raynes JK; Domigan LJ; Pearce FG; Gerrard JA (2018)
      Tobacco etch virus (TEV) protease is widely used for the removal of poly-histidine affinity tags from proteins. In solution, it is a one-time use enzyme for tag cleavage that has low stability, and is therefore a good ...
    • Impact of ADHD on the neurocognitive functioning of adolescents with bipolar disorder 

      Rucklidge, J.J. (University of Canterbury. Psychology., 2006)
      Background: Pediatric Bipolar Disorder (BD) has been associated with a number of neurocognitive deficits not dissimilar to ADHD. This study compared neuropsychological profiles of 4 groups of adolescents (14–17 years): ...
    • The impact of trout on galaxiid fishes in New Zealand

      Compared with the effect of invaders on the native terrestrial fauna of New Zealand, interactions between native fishes and introduced trout (sports fish in the genera Salmo, Oncorhynchus and Salvelinus) are less well known ...
    • Impact of Volcanic Ash on Road and Airfield Surface Skid Resistance 

      Blake DM; Wilson TM; Cole JW; Deligne NI; Lindsay JM (2017)
