The emergence of embodiment as a research area Renewed interest in theories and perspectives of embodiment has emerged in conjunction with advances in ubiquitous computing and the development of technologies that inherently change the character of human computer interaction.

Embodiment: interdisciplinary themes and perspectives for digital technology research

The very nature of technologies such as tangible, multi-touch, sensor and mobile technologies offers opportunities for exploiting a wider range of perceptual-based experiences than traditional desktop computing. Primarily they offer opportunities to exploit more bodily-based physical experiences in new ways, for example, through manipulation of physical objects linked to a variety of digitally augmentations; enhancing contextually based experience in real world environments through mobile devices, fostering new forms interaction and new ways of thinking. Computers can tell if you're bored, shows new study. Technology could lead to 'empathetic' robots and reactive on-line learning programmes.

Computers can tell if you're bored, shows new study

Computers are able to read a person's body language to tell whether they are bored or interested in what they see on the screen, according to a new study led by body language expert Dr Harry Witchel, Discipline Leader in Physiology at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. The research shows that by measuring a person's movements as they use a computer, it is possible to judge their level of interest by monitoring whether they display the tiny movements that people usually constantly exhibit, known as non-instrumental movements. Non-Instrumental Movement Inhibition (NIMI) Differentially Suppresses Head and Thigh Movements during Screenic Engagement: Dependence on Interaction. Neuroplasticity: think on purpose and change your brain.

“The brain is neuroplastic,” says world renowned cognitive neuroscientist, Dr.

Neuroplasticity: think on purpose and change your brain

Caroline Leaf. Her research proves that brain structures can be changed at the intersection of faith and science. Dr. Leaf’s research shows that thoughts are physical things in terms of neuroscience. Brain imaging shows that a thought actually occupies mental real estate. Dr. A toxic thought literally equates to brain damage because the brain is not wired to naturally accept negativity. In order to even host a toxic thought, the brain – which is naturally wired for thoughts that extend from love, must translate toxic thoughts into some representation that it can understand. Toxic thoughts create disorder in the brain because the natural brain language of love and life is violated.

Expanding Dr. Dr. In fact, Dr. When Dr. The science of neuroplasticity is the study of how the brain physically changes. What Educators and Parents Should Know About Neuroplasticity, Learning and Dance. — The Dance for Athletes class at Glen Burnie High School performs a swing piece Dance.

What Educators and Parents Should Know About Neuroplasticity, Learning and Dance

Is it merely art? Is it just recreation? Think again. Dance is now being studied as a pathway to enhance learning. Recently at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting, more than 6,800 attendees paid rapt attention to renowned choreographer Mark Morris as he answered questions about the relationship between creativity and dance. The Geek Movement » UIST 2009 SIC: Laban Gestures for Expressive Keyboarding. On October 5th, we participated in the Student Innovation Contest at the 2009 User Interface Software and Technology conference (UIST) in Victoria, BC.

Student teams were given about a month to develop a novel use for a pressure sensitive keyboard developed by Microsoft Research, and all the entries were demonstrated and voted upon at the conference. Laban 1926 Choreographie Analysis of Movement. Within the Kinesphere. Laban Analysis Reviews. The concept of a direction requires an origin from which the direction is judged, this origin is often conceived to be a center of the kinesphere (movement space).

Laban Analysis Reviews

Rudolf Laban's choreutics frequently uses a full-body sized kinesphere surrounding the person, with directions judged from an an egocentric reference system with center conceived to be the center of the body. This creates a global system where the directional orientation of the entire body is considered as a whole.

Cinematics case study: Mass Effect 3

The trailer, dubbed 'Take Earth Back', tells the story of an alien invasion as Earth is attacked by the game's Reapers. We go in-depth with Digic to show how the cinematic was made - in stereo - featuring behind the scenes video breakdowns, images and commentary from several of the artists involved.

Kinesthetic Spatial Cognition “Kinesthetic spatial cognition” can be defined as referring to the perception, memory, and recall of spatial information via the kinesthetic perceptual-motor system. IIC.10 Spatial Cognition versus Verbal Cognition A great deal of research has demonstrated that spatial cognitive processes and verbal cognitive processes use separate cognitive resources. This has formed the basis of multi-channel models of information processing according to which cognitive attention can be allocated simultaneously to separate verbal and spatial tasks (eg. Other evidence for multi-channel models comes from studies of patients with neurological disease or injury.

Movement. Photography. Else Ernestine Neulander-Simon (A.k.a. YVA) Else Ernestine Neulander-Simon (Aka YVA) was a german photographer. Yva came from a Jewish middle-class family. She worked for many of the illustrated magazines and periodicals of the time. Towards the end of the 1920s, Yva began focusing on the commercial aspect of photography, specializing in advertising and photography.
