Use of Eye Movement Tracking in the Differential Diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Reading Disability  [PDF]
Pamela Deans, Liz O’Laughlin, Brad Brubaker, Nathan Gay, Damon Krug
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.14032
Abstract: The present study examined the clinical utility of eye movement tracking in the differential diagnosis of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Reading Disorder (RD). It was anticipated that eye movement tracking would provide a better understanding of the underlying deficits that potentially contribute to reading difficulties among children with ADHD and RD. Participants included 27 children diagnosed with ADHD, 20 that met criteria for a reading disorder and 30 Control children with no clinical diagnosis. All participants were between the ages of 6 to 12. Consistent with previous research, children in the RD group displayed slower reading time, longer fixation duration and more atypical eye movements as compared to Control children. Children with ADHD also displayed more atypical eye movement as compared to Control children. The only significant difference between the ADHD and RD groups was in total reading time. Results of a discriminant analysis revealed that less than 60% of participants were given the correct diagnostic classification based on total reading time and proportion of left to right saccades indicating limited support for this measure in diagnosis of ADHD versus RD.
Economic globalisation and economic justice: Covenanting for action between the reformed churches of South Africa and Germany
M Damon
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009,
Abstract: The premise of this article is that ethical moral formation or ‘covenanting for justice’ leads to action. The covenanting church itself, in conjunction with other movements, works for justice in all areas of life. The article uses the six aspects of ethical moral formation of Heinz T dt to analyse some aspects of economic globalisation in order to form moral judgements that will lead to joint action. These six aspects are: assessing the problem as a moral issue; analysing the problem to determine to what extent it challenges the affected; weighing different behavioural responses to the problem; ascertaining what norms, goods and perspectives could play a role in the different moral choices; communicating ethical decisions to stakeholders; and the moral decision and actions themselves.

The effect of digitalized museum information on learning
Damon Monzavi
University Museums and Collections Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Five years ago, the Gemstones Museum began introducing Iranians to the art, science and industry of gemstones and minerals. One of the ways that the Gemstones Museum tries to communicate is through making its digital documentation accessible through Bluetooth technology. When visitors turn on their Bluetooth in the Museum entrance, they are asked to subscribe to the SMS newsletter. By subscribing, the member receives an SMS newsletter every two days. When a child or student subscribes, he or she receives a quiz question or a puzzle and can win points in a competition, leading to a prize. Inside the Museum, visitors are encouraged to enter into their phone the numbers next to exhibits. On doing this, they receive information about the exhibit, together with images and music. Most of the Museum’s visitors (especially from the younger generation) enjoy this kind of learning, and in the course of less than one year more than 5,000 people have subscribed to our SMS newsletters.
Investment in Social Sciences: Key to a Democratic Iran
Damon Golriz
Amsterdam Law Forum , 2009,
Abstract: Advanced communication technologies, especially the Internet and its democratic power to make information accessible, make it possible to stay connected with everyone in the world. Through mediums of dialogue, such as the internet, young Iranians obtain knowledge about the institutionalized liberal democratic values of the West. In time, it will lead to adaptation of these values that could incrementally establish a democratic Iran. This new generation of liberal democrats would perceive the institutionalization of their values as their main objective, raising that priority higher than Iran's nuclear program. Due to this development, the threat of a nuclear Iran would diminish.
Mesurer la pauvreté pour l’éliminer
Julien Damon
Field Actions Science Reports , 2012,
Abstract: En 2000, l’ONU a établi des Objectifs du millénaire pour le développement, visant notamment à réduire de moitié l’extrême pauvreté d’ici 2015. En 2000, l’Union européenne a lancé sa stratégie dite de Lisbonne, contenant une invitation à donner un élan décisif à l’élimination de la pauvreté à l’horizon 2010. Depuis 2007, la France s’est fixé un objectif de réduction d’un tiers de la pauvreté, sur cinq ans. Ce volontarisme politique appelle, dans les trois cas, une élaboration technique afin de définir et décrire la pauvreté. à ces trois échelles fran aise, européenne, internationale, les modes d’approche et de décompte ne sont pas les mêmes. Pour autant, ce qui les rassemble est plus important que ce qui les différencie.
Measuring Poverty in order to Eradicate It
Julien Damon
Field Actions Science Reports , 2012,
Abstract: In 2000, the UN established its Millennium Development Goals, with the notable aim of halving extreme poverty by 2015. That same year, the European Union launched its Lisbon strategy, containing an injunction to “make a decisive impact on the eradication of poverty by 2010”. Since 2007, France has set a national target of reducing poverty by one third over five years. These proactive policies call, in all three cases, for technical elucidation to define and describe poverty. Each of the three scales – French, European and international – has its own approaches and methods of quantification. And yet their similarities are more significant than their differences.
Failure in Complex Social Networks
Damon Centola
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: Tolerance against failures and errors is an important feature of many complex networked systems [1,2]. It has been shown that a class of inhomogeneously wired networks called scale-free[1,3] networks can be surprisingly robust to failures, suggesting that socially self-organized systems such as the World-Wide Web, the Internet, and other kinds of social networks [4] may have significant tolerance against failures by virtue of their scale-free degree distribution. I show that this finding only holds on the assumption that the diffusion process supported by the network is a simple one, requiring only a single contact in order for transmission to be successful.
The global medial structure of regions in R^3
James Damon
Mathematics , 2009, DOI: 10.2140/gt.2006.10.2385
Abstract: For compact regions Omega in R^3 with generic smooth boundary B, we consider geometric properties of Omega which lie midway between their topology and geometry and can be summarized by the term "geometric complexity". The "geometric complexity" of Omega is captured by its Blum medial axis M, which is a Whitney stratified set whose local structure at each point is given by specific standard local types. We classify the geometric complexity by giving a structure theorem for the Blum medial axis M. We do so by first giving an algorithm for decomposing M using the local types into "irreducible components" and then representing each medial component as obtained by attaching surfaces with boundaries to 4--valent graphs. The two stages are described by a two level extended graph structure. The top level describes a simplified form of the attaching of the irreducible medial components to each other, and the second level extended graph structure for each irreducible component specifies how to construct the component. We further use the data associated to the extended graph structures to compute topological invariants of Omega such as the homology and fundamental group in terms of the singular invariants of M defined using the local standard types and the extended graph structures. Using the classification, we characterize contractible regions in terms of the extended graph structures and the associated data.
Topology of Exceptional Orbit Hypersurfaces of Prehomogeneous Spaces
James Damon
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We consider the topology for a class of hypersurfaces with highly nonisolated singularites which arise as exceptional orbit varieties of a special class of prehomogeneous vector spaces, which are representations of linear algebraic groups with open orbits. These hypersurface singularities include both determinantal hypersurfaces and linear free (and free*) divisors. Although these hypersurfaces have highly nonisolated singularities, we determine the topology of their Milnor fibers, complements and links. We do so by using the action of linear algebraic groups beginning with the complement, instead of using Morse type arguments on the Milnor fibers. This includes replacing the local Milnor fiber by a global Milnor fiber which has a complex geometry resulting from a transitive action of an appropriate algebraic group, yielding a compact model submanifold for the homotopy type of the Milnor fiber. The topology includes the (co)homology (in characteristic 0, and 2 torsion in one family) and homotopy groups, and we deduce the triviality of the monodromy transformations on rational (or complex) cohomology. The cohomology of the Milnor fibers and complements are isomorphic as algebras to exterior algebras or for one family, modules over exterior algebras; and cohomology of the link is, as a vector space, a truncated and shifted exterior algebra, for which the cohomology product structure is essentially trivial. We also deduce from Bott's periodicity theorem, the homotopy groups of the Milnor fibers for determinantal hypersurfaces in the stable range as the stable homotopy groups of the associated infinite dimensional symmetric spaces. Applying a Theorem of Oka we obtain a class of formal linear combinations of exceptional orbit hypersurfaces which have Milnor fibers which are homotopy equivalent to joins of the compact model submanifolds.
