Psychologists Link Emotion to Vividness of Perception and Creation of Vivid Memories - Psychologists overlaid images with visual noise to measure perception. After accounting for other features of images that contribute to perceptual vividness, such as contrast, color, and scene complexity, they found emotionally arousing images to be perceived more vividly, and thus contributing partly to more vivid memories of certain images later.

Our design for a corten steel house in West London has received a merit at the Structural Steel Design Awards. The rust-like appearance of the weathered corten steel cladding is a striking feature of the cutting-edge design of this private dwelling. The main challenge associated with the design was...

Scraperboard drawing by Bill Sanderson 1997 via the Wellcome Library London.  Practicing paying attention can boost performance on a new task and change the way the brain processes information a new study says. This might explain why learning a new skill can start out feeling grueling but eventually feels more natural  although right now the studys findings are limited to a simple pattern-recognition game.  Theres a long-standing debate about how exactly paying attention helps us learn. One…
