An Ear with Multiple Vascular Lesions: Does Dermoscopy Offer Any Hints?

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2021 Mar 1;14(3):30-31. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Drs. Scarfì, Silvestri, Trane, Venturi, and De Giorgi are with the Department of Dermatology, University of Florence in Florence, Italy.

Cutaneous lesions of vascular origin are normally easily diagnosed, both clinically and dermoscopically. However, Kaposi's sarcoma can trigger difficulties in making a correct preoperative diagnosis. Although dermoscopic pictures are not pathognomonic for diagnosing Kaposi's sarcoma, dermoscopic analysis could be a useful complement to a differential diagnosis of nodular pigmented cutaneous lesions.

Nicholas J Wade

J Eye Mov Res 2020 Jun 2;13(2). Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Psychology, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN, UK.

In 1935 Guy Buswell, an educational psychologist at Chicago University, published How People Look at Pictures. In it he recorded photographically the eye movements of 200 observers when looking at a wide variety of pictures. He analysed the overall distribution of fixations on pictures, compared the first few fixations on a picture to the last few, measured the durations of fixations made early in viewing and those made near the end of viewing, examined how fixation duration changed with viewing time, recorded the consistency between different observers when viewing the same picture and he looked at the influence of instructions given to observers upon their eye movements when viewing a picture.

Uncovering the computational mechanisms underlying many-alternative choice.

Elife 2021 Apr 6;10. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

The Ohio State University, Columbus, United States.

How do we choose when confronted with many alternatives? There is surprisingly little decision modelling work with large choice sets, despite their prevalence in everyday life. Even further, there is an apparent disconnect between research in small choice sets, supporting a process of gaze-driven evidence accumulation, and research in larger choice sets, arguing for models of optimal choice, satisficing, and hybrids of the two. Here, we bridge this divide by developing and comparing different versions of these models in a many-alternative value-based choice experiment with 9, 16, 25, or 36 alternatives. Read More
