Abstract

Time perception in the range of milliseconds to a few seconds is essential for many important sensory and perceptual tasks including speech perception, motion perception, motor coordination, and cross-modal interaction. For the brain to be in synchrony with the environment, the physical differences in the speeds of light and sound, as well as stimuli from other modalities such as odors, must be processed and coordinated (Pöppel & Bao 2014; Bao et al., 2015). Time is a subjective feeling that is modulated by emotional states which trigger temporal distortions (temporal dilation vs. contraction) (Wittmann et al., 2014), hence give rise to subjective time that may be different to event time as initially registered in the brain. Recent research suggests that time perception in a multisensory world is subject to prior task experience and shaped by (statistical) learning processes. Humans are active learners. That is, the engagement of the own body in a timing task within a perceptual-action loop will make a noticeable difference in timing performance, as compared to when humans only passively perceive the same perceptual scenario (Bao et al., 2015; Chen & Vroomen, 2013). This Research Topic of “Sub-and Supra-Second Timing: Brain, Learning and Development” has integrated sixteen submissions of novel research on sub- and supra-timing. We have categorized the papers in this topic into the following four themes, from which we can deduce trends of research about multisensory timing in the sub- and supra-second range:Sensory timing, interaction and reliabilityAdaptive representation of time, learning and temporal predictionSensorimotor synchronization, embodiment and coordinationPerspective of psychological moment and temporal organizationOverall, the collections in “Sub-and Supra-Second Timing: Brain, Learning and Development” show some recent trends and debates in multisensory timing research as well as provide a venue to inspire future work in multisensory timing.

Abstract

The Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) that took effect in 2005 follows an independent method as opposed to the conventional execution carried out by state authorities with regards to the legal execution. It commits the producer of electrical and electronic equipment to the establishment of a private law Clearing House (Gemeinsame Stelle) and assigns it numerous tasks to be carried out on its own responsibility. The significance of the Clearing House for the implementation of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act is heightened by the fact that it assumes additional sovereign tasks assigned to it within the scope of the designation. This unusual double function is applied to the task at hand and illuminates the status and organisation of Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte-Register that is set up as Clearing House. The task furthermore examines the most important tasks in practice of producer registration and the coordination of WEEE collection, as well as the thus far little researched task of specifying the equipment types important for implementation. The work is rounded off by a chapter dedicated to the issues of legal protection against the measures of Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte-Register, particularly in its function as designated agency.

Abstract

One remarkable ability of the human brain is to process large amounts of information about our surroundings to allow us to interact effectively with them. In everyday life, the most common way to interact with objects is by reaching, grasping, lifting and manipulating them. Although these may sound like simple tasks, the perceptual properties of the target object, such as its location, size, shape, and orientation all need to be processed in order to set the movement parameters that allow an accurate reach-to-grasp-to lift movement. Several brain areas work in concert to process this outstanding amount of visual information and drive the execution of a motor plan in just a few hundred milliseconds. How are these processes orchestrated? In developing this type of comprehensive knowledge about the interactions between objects perception and goal-directed actions, we have a window into the mechanisms underlying the functioning of the visuo-motor system. With this research topic we aim to further understand the neural mechanisms that mediate our interactions with the world. Therefore, we particularly encourage submission of papers that attempt to relate such findings to real-world situations by investigating behavioural and neural correlates of information processing related to eye-hand coordination and visually-guided actions, including reaching, grasping, and lifting movements. This topic welcomes submissions of original research using any relevant techniques and methods, from behavioural kinematics/kinetics, to neuroimaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), as well as neuropsychological studies.One remarkable ability of the human brain is to process large amounts of information about our surroundings to allow us to interact effectively with them.

Abstract

The emerging and interesting field of MOF encouraged us to bring forth the book titled ''Metal Organic Frameworks''. The book is divided into three sections. Section A consists of introduction, Section B comprises the synthesis and characterization techniques, and Section C is dedicated to the applications of MOFs. The book would be useful for scientists and researchers interested in the field of MOFs.
