• structures
  • In the following section we explore the possible supplements and substances which may have an impact on intraocular pressure and/or serve as protection for the optic nerve and other ocular structures which are affected in glaucoma. (fiteyes.com)
  • The act of crying has been defined as "a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures", instead, giving a relief which protects from conjunctivitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • cerebral
  • In 1875, Richard Caton (1842-1926), a physician practicing in Liverpool , presented his findings about electrical phenomena of the exposed cerebral hemispheres of rabbits and monkeys in the British Medical Journal . (wikipedia.org)
  • This phenomenon is frequently associated with damage to the right cerebral hemisphere resulting in severe sensory deficits that are observed on the contralesional (left) side of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • movements
  • Note that this is not the same description of ocular torsion as rotation around the line of sight: whereas movements that start or end at the primary position can indeed be performed without any rotation about the line of sight, this is not the case for arbitrary movements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nystagmus is not to be confused with other superficially similar-appearing disorders of eye movements (saccadic oscillations) such as opsoclonus or ocular flutter that are composed purely of fast-phase (saccadic) eye movements, while nystagmus is characterised by the combination of a smooth pursuit, which usually acts to take the eye off the point of regard, interspersed with the saccadic movement that serves to bring the eye back on target.

  • Vision
  • The work of the Salpêtrière School also presented a new vision of the phenomenon of hysteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • An ocular condition in which one eye uses the sensitive centre of the RETINA , while the other uses a more peripheral part, thereby conferring a crude form of binocular vision with a persistent AMBLYOPIA in the deviating eye that is harder to correct than amblyopia in the absence of ARC . (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Species with tetrachromatic color vision may have an unknown physiological advantage over rival species. (wikipedia.org)
  • effect
  • It was originally publicized for its IOP lowering effect via a topical ocular application, but certain problems were encountered in this approach. (fiteyes.com)
  • This argument is a reconfiguration of the traditional, physiological model that makes the motion an effect of ocular physiology. (experimentaltvcenter.org)
  • This phenomenon, now referred to as chromostereopsis, or the stereoptic effect, explains the visual science behind this color depth effect, and has many implications for art, media, evolution, as well as our daily lives in how we perceive colors and objects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although Goethe did not propose any scientific reasoning behind his observations, in the late 1860s Bruecke and Donders first suggested that the chromostereoptic effect was due to accommodative awareness, given that ocular optics are not achromatic and red objects require more accommodation to be focused on the retina. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a 1998 study of professional baseball players, hand-ocular dominance patterns did not show an effect on batting average or ERA. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • Together, using chemical genetics and WISH, the zebrafish becomes a potent whole organism context in which to determine the cellular and physiological effects of small molecules. (jove.com)
  • studies
  • Past studies have addressed issues in the respiratory, ocular and cardiovascular systems. (medmeeting.org)
  • This phenomenon is supported by studies showing that if two stimuli are simultaneously applied to both sides of the body, the patient [with their eyes closed] will ignore the stimulus that is applied to the affected side and report a tactile sensation from the unaffected side alone. (wikipedia.org)
  • motion
  • Type I plaid motion made by summing two orthogonal moving gratings elicited ocular following with identical short latencies. (jneurosci.org)
  • Ocular following was first initiated in the grating motion direction, at ultra-short latency. (jneurosci.org)
  • These results suggest that initial ocular following is underpinned by parallel processing of component- and pattern-related velocities followed by an integrative stage that computes the two-dimensional surface motion. (jneurosci.org)
  • and physiological ( Pack and Born, 2001 ) evidence that 2D motion computation is a dynamical process that takes several tens of milliseconds to be accurately completed. (jneurosci.org)
  • important
  • Physiological functioning of Katanin and the resulting microtubule fragmentation is now reported to be important underlying mechanism in cell division, neuron development, cell migration, and locomotory organelle formation. (hindawi.com)
  • Ocular dominance is an important consideration in predicting patient satisfaction with monovision correction in cataract surgery refractive surgery, also laser eye surgery, and contact lens wear. (wikipedia.org)
  • attention
  • Dr. Maria Montessori was one of the earlier educators who brought attention to this phenomenon and called it "Sensitive Periods", which is one of the pillars of her philosophy of education. (wikipedia.org)
