Thus, the data was categorized into the following groups: (1) the group of 8 congenitally blind subjects (CBG), (2) the group of 5 adventitiously
blind who rated their residual vision as low (ABG1); (3) the group of 5 adventitiously
blind who rated their residual vision as high or very high (ABG2), and (4) the sighted group (SG).
While many people who are adventitiously
blind interpret their lack of vision as "an actively repressed memento mori" (reminder of the mortality) (56) of their sight, Swearingen never viewed himself as disabled.
This issue is further complicated by the different, more fundamental requirements of congenitally blind people compared with adventitiously
blind people and those with residual vision.
(4) Such technologies often comprise readymade, heterogeneous conceptual and practical tools that are adventitiously
and contingently assembled into functioning machines whose sole defining feature is that they somehow work.
But there are already many useful design precedents in the Town Magnet--enclosed but interlinked gardens, street trees and parks, balconies and roof terraces, formerly polluted river and canal belts now adventitiously
reverted into corridors of biodiversity.
They lead the scientist adventitiously
into the unexplored fractions of space and time, from which he returns to reports his findings and fulfill his social role.
They have made use of the research undertaken by psychologists, cognitive scientists and geographers (over almost 40 years) which investigated the cognitive and perceptual abilities of adventitiously
and congenitally blind subjects using tactile diagrams, graphics and maps (Lederman 1979; Dodds 1989; Hampson and Daly 1989; Passini et al.
Thus, there are close to 1 million adventitiously
deafened adults in the United States, and they represent the vast majority (75 percent) of deaf people.
Instead of working to increase the number of deaf schools, the government focused on differentiating three different types of deaf schools: those for the totally deaf, those for the partially deaf (born with defective hearing), and those for late deafened or adventitiously
Furthermore, because of the fact that covalently linked hybrids are far more stable than conventional duplex strands, adventitiously
bound signal-generating probes may be more efficiently removed from the test sample with washing procedures of higher stringency, thus effectively lowering background.
Many small conifers rooted adventitiously
in 15 cm of tephra (Zobel and Antos 1982), as had larger trees in earlier eruptions (Lawrence 1954, J.
