This book provides an introduction into both computational models and experimental paradigms that are concerned with sensory cue integration both within and between sensory modalities. Importantly, across behavioral, electrophysiological and theoretical approaches, Bayesian statistics is emerging as a common language in which cue-combination problems can be expressed. This book focuses on the emerging probabilistic way of thinking about these problems. These approaches derive from the realization that all our sensors are noisy and moreover are often affected by ambiguity. For example, mechanoreceptor outputs are variable and they cannot distinguish if a perceived force is caused by the weight of an object or by force we are producing ourselves. The computational approaches described in this book aim at formalizing the uncertainty of cues. They describe cue combination as the nervous system's attempt to minimize uncertainty in its estimates and to choose successful actions. Some computational approaches described in the chapters of this book are concerned with the application of such statistical ideas to real-world cue-combination problems, such as shape and depth perception. Other parts of the book ask how uncertainty may be represented in the nervous system and used for cue combination. The broadening scope of probabilistic approaches to cue combination is highlighted in the breadth of topics covered in this book: the chapters summarize and discuss computational approaches and behavioral evidence aimed at understanding the combination of visual, auditory, proprioceptive, and haptic cues. Some chapters address the combination of cues within a single sensory modality while others address the combination across sensory modalities. Neural implementation, behavior, and theory are considered. The unifying aspect of this book is the focus on the uncertainty intrinsic to sensory cues and the underlying question of how the nervous system deals with this uncertainty. The book is intended as a reference text for graduate students and professionals in perceptual psychology, computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and sensory neurophysiology.

Under flight conditions, as well as in other situations, judgments of the distances between objects may depend upon a variety of possible cues. In this study, the hypothesis was tested that the intention to use a particular cue relation would enhance the effectiveness of that particular cue in determining the resulting perception. For this purpose, a situation was presented in which the apparent depth position of an object in a configuration of objects would differ depending upon which of two possible cue relations (size cues) were used. The results support the conclusion that the perceived depth position of the object differed in the expected directions as a function of the task-set. The data of the study are discussed with respect to the 'adjacency principle' which states that cue efficiency is determined by the relative adjacency of objects between which the cues occur. Although the effect of cue-set upon the perception seems to be small compared with that of adjacency, it cannot completely be ignored. (Author).

This book is written for the aficionados of pocket billiards, the weekly recreational & league players, the Pro-players, the action players, and even the actor players, playing players in movies or TV shows. We must also include the backbone of pocket and carom billiards. A most unlikely group of people that play pool so casually that they don’t even consider themselves as players. It is just something to do while waiting for something else to happen. These billiard characters reside in the mysterious back corners of my mind. Over the last few years they kept driving me, at odd hours to, “go ahead Doc, write it down, don’t let our billiard knowledge just die out and fritter away”. I listened. To list all these players, writers, supporters and industry suppliers that influenced me is not practical, but they were all subconsciously urging me on. Some were mere shadows of memories or ghosts flickering through the murky mental back roads. All had a part in this. God bless them all for those parts that they played.

Caller One: "She was just the sweetest thing... there's no way she could have done all those horrible things you media people keep saying she did. Just no way." Caller Two:"Who's to say someone else didn't kill that Johnny Venture? Jasmine could have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. How do we know for sure?" Caller Three: "If she really didn't do it, why break out of jail? Why not wait for the verdict and walk away a free woman?" These are some of the comments--not really unexpected--that Shauna J. Bogart is getting on her talk radio show after the news that a television and radio star known as Jasmine has escaped from custody. After a long career as an entertainer, Jasmine has been making an amazing comeback, but now she's just been jailed. Well, someone who wakes up and finds a dead body beside her in her hotel bed can't really complain about that. The news now is that as Jasmine and four other women prisoners are being transferred to a different jail, the police van is intercepted on the road and the women freed. Since the nationally famous Jasmine was a local girl, Shauna J's callers, all of whom claim to have known her, are quick (and thrilled) to comment. Shauna J. is thrilled, too. Anyone who works in the news business, she tells us, will admit to the same, if they're honest. Add to that the notice she's just received that tells her she's been voted into the Broadcast Legends Hall of Fame. With her lover Peter off on some annoyingly mysterious mission, Shauna decides to follow her dream - she will find Jasmine herself, and get a firsthand interview. Shauna's convinced she can get it; she's got something other news people don't have. The song, "Meet Me at the Casbah," is what has sparked Jasmine's second round of fame, and Shauna's own mother had coached Jasmine in that song, many years ago. That, the identity of the dead man, and a scam connected with the song itself all begins to come obligingly together. But the tighter the strands are tied, the more Shauna herself is in real jeopardy. As in her first, award-winning book, Joyce Krieg has the delightful Shauna take you behind the scenes of the broadcast world and beyond, spiced by the call-ins of Shauna J.'s listeners and decorated with bona fide pictures of what goes on "backstage" in local radio, in Slip Cue.

The purpose of this book, "First Love", is to direct Christians back to the simplicity of the message of the Gospels. We have forgotten about our first love, Jesus Christ. Over the last two thousand years, man has inserted religion into the equation and made it very difficult to see the outline of the cross through the mire. There is no unity between the Christian denominations and there is a predominant belief that we should not invoke our religious beliefs into the government due to the belief that church and state should be separate. The book also tries to show how America has slowly drifted away from God, just like ancient Israel did before the Babylonian captivity. We are a Christian nation only by name with no real substance. The book also tries to answer some questions: What is the real story of man's beginning? Is there something that we're missing about the creation story? Why isn't America in the Book of Revelation? Isn't America the world's most powerful nation? Do we even exist as a nation during the tribulation? Why don't we see the miracles that are in the Bible? Isn't our faith strong enough? What has been lost in Christ's message over the years? Christ said that Christians would be doing greater things than He did on Earth. What happened? Has our pride gotten in the way? These are just a few of the questions the book puts into perspective while shedding new light and insight by delving deeper into the "meat" of the Holy Scripture. You are sure to come away with a deeper appreciation of the majesty and wonder of God, His infinite wisdom, and His great love for you and me.
