    ABSTRACT: The Simon Effect is a phenomenon in which reaction times are usually faster when the stimulus location and the response correspond, even if the stimulus location is irrelevant to the task. Recent studies have demonstrated the Simon effect in a three-dimensional (3-D) display. The present study examined whether two-dimensional (2-D) and 3-D locations simultaneously affected the Simon effect for stimuli in which a target and fixation were located on the same plane (ground or ceiling) at different 3-D depths, and the perspective effect produced a difference in the 2-D vertical location of the target stimulus relative to the fixation. The presence of the ground and ceiling plane was controlled to examine the contextual effects of background. The results showed that the 2-D vertical location and 3-D depth simultaneously affected the speed of responses, and they did not interact. The presence of the background did not affect the magnitude of either the 2-D or the 3-D Simon effect. These results suggest that 2-D vertical location and 3-D depth are coded simultaneously and independently, and both affect response selection in which 2-D and 3-D representations overlap.

    ABSTRACT: MgO-templated mesoporous carbons with high specific surface areas were employed for the electrode materials of electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs) in low temperature ionic liquids. The mesoporous carbons exhibit strongly enhanced capacitance in ionic liquids at 20 to −40 °C compared to conventional activated carbons. Mesopores in the carbon electrodes provide a smooth pathway for the ions, and minimize the temperature influence on the diffusion resistance of the ions. Thus, this paper confirms that mesoporous carbons work as electrode materials to achieve highly enhanced capacitances below 0 °C in ionic liquids, which leads to wide ranging applications of EDLC devices.
