Latest Color vision Stories
A brain area known to play a critical role in vision is divided into compartments that respond separately to different colors and orientations.
The colorful Australian film â€˜Strictly Ballroomâ€™ has been used in a breakthrough scientific experiment to locate the color processing centre in the human brain.
A chance discovery has led Australian scientists to question key assumptions about how our vision works.
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis have peered deep into the eye of the chicken and found a masterpiece of biological design.
Researchers from the University of Washington and the University of Florida have used gene therapy to cure two adult monkeys of color blindness, successfully restoring full color vision to the animals.
The eyes of nocturnal bats possess two spectral cone photoreceptor types for daylight and colour vision. Reporting in the open-access, peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE
BEND, Ore., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- WindowAlert announced today that it has sent technologically advanced window decals to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC. The decals help prevent wild birds from striking windows.
The way nocturnal geckos perceive color could lead to better cameras and contact lenses, researchers in Sweden said. The geckos are among the very few creatures able to see color at night, said Lina Roth, a researcher at the Lund University. The key to the exceptional vision is a series of distinct
Nocturnal geckos are among the very few living creatures able to see colors at night, and scientists' discovery of series of distinct concentric zones may lead to insight into better cameras and contact lenses.
New York University biologists have mapped the medulla circuitry in fruit flies, setting the stage for subsequent research on how color vision is processed. The work, which appeared in the journal Current Biology, will allow future scholarship to explore how color vision is processed in the optic lobe of the fruit fly Drosophila, providing a paradigm for more complex systems in vertebrates.
