It’s all in the eyes: Women and men really do see things differently

first_imgWomen and men look at faces and absorb visual information in different ways, which suggests there is a gender difference in understanding visual cues, according to a team of scientists that included psychologists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).The researchers used an eye tracking device on almost 500 participants at the Science Museum over a five-week period to monitor and judge how much eye contact they felt comfortable with while looking at a face on a computer screen.They found that women looked more at the left-hand side of faces and had a strong left eye bias, but that they also explored the face much more than men. The team observed that it was possible to tell the gender of the participant based on the scanning pattern of how they looked at the face with nearly 80 per cent accuracy. Given the very large sample size the researchers suggest this is not due to chance.

We can also eliminate any other observable characteristics like perceived attractiveness or trustworthiness.”The participants were asked to judge how comfortable the amount of eye contact they made with the actor in a Skype-like scenario. Each participant saw the same actor (there were eight in total) during the testing period, which was around 15 minutes. At the end of the session the researchers collected personality information about the participants through questionnaires.Co-author Dr Isabelle Mareschal also from QMUL’s School of Biological and Chemical Sciences added: “There are numerous claims in popular culture that women and men look at things differently – this is the first demonstration, using eye tracking, to support this claim that they take in visual information in different ways.”The team describe their findings in the Journal of Vision and suggest the gender difference in scanning visual information might impact many research fields, such as autism diagnosis or even everyday behaviours like watching a movie or looking at the road while driving.last_img read more

Motor moves to Point Comfort

first_imgThe shipment included a hyper stator, which weighed 108 tonnes and measured 8 m x 4.6 m x 5.8 m; and a rotor which weighed 130.7 tonnes and measured 10.2 m x 4.4 m x 4.4 m.For the transport to the Port of Oshawa, BNSF Logistics Canada and General Transport conducted bridge surveys and traffic management plans, which included lifting overhead power lines.Upon arrival at the port, the cargoes were loaded onto BBC Chartering’s heavy lift vessel HR Constellation for onward transportation to a refinery in Point Comfort, Texas, USA.Both General Transport and BNSF Logistics are members of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC). www.general-transport.com www.bnsflogistics.com www.wwpc.eu.comlast_img read more

Plying their trade

first_imgObiter is a big fan of the Manchester PI firm Express Solicitors, which has a penchant for curious publicity stunts. Earlier this year a snapper caught embarrassed staff posing somewhat redundantly next to a large train (an Express train, geddit?). Now we have this, designed to mark the opening of a new £1m office. We are somewhat concerned at the attempt to get everyone holding the big scissors/pliers (?) and the wilful disregard for safety this demonstrates, as one chap contemplates the imminent loss of his fingers. Who wants to see a picture of a lawyer with his digits in danger? We think we just answered our own question.last_img read more
