Sunglasses alone will not prevent biker dry eye says Bio Logic Aqua Research founder Sharon Kleyne. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) February 18, 2014 The wind in your face! It’s a major reason some people ride motorcycles and many bikers are disinclined to do too much to block the wind, beyond wearing eye protection such as sunglasses or face shields (mostly to deflect bugs, dust and flying rocks). According to water and eye researcher Sharon Kleyne, even with sunglasses and face shields,...

With a little practice on a computer or iPad—25 minutes a day, 4 days a week, for 2 months—our brains can learn to see better, according to a study of University of California, Riverside baseball players reported in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on February 17. The new evidence also shows that a visual training program can sometimes make the difference between winning and losing. The study is the first, as far as the researchers know, to show that perceptual learning can...

Optogenetics is a technique that allows scientists to control neurons' electrical activity with light by engineering them to express light-sensitive proteins. Within the past decade, it has become a very powerful tool for discovering the functions of different types of cells in the brain. Most of these light-sensitive proteins, known as opsins, respond to light in the blue-green range. Now, a team led by MIT has discovered an opsin that is sensitive to red light, which allows researchers...

Faster Eye Movements Is A Possible Indicator Of Impulsive Decision-making
2014-01-22 10:21:01

Johns Hopkins Medicine Using a simple study of eye movements, Johns Hopkins scientists report evidence that people who are less patient tend to move their eyes with greater speed. The findings, the researchers say, suggest that the weight people give to the passage of time may be a trait consistently used throughout their brains, affecting the speed with which they make movements, as well as the way they make certain decisions. In a summary of the research to be published Jan. 21 in The...

Zonules of Zinn
2012-07-01 19:12:34

The Zonules of Zinn, also known as Zinn’s membrane and ciliary zonule, is a ring of fibrous strands connecting the ciliary body with the crystalline lens of the eye. The zonule of Zinn is split into two layers: a thin layer, which lines with the hyaloid fossa, and a thick layer, which is a collection of zonular fibers. Together, these fibers are known as the suspensory ligament of the lens. When color granules are displaced from the Zonules of Zinn, by friction against the lens, the...

Hurricane Features

Location A: This is known as the Eye or the center of the Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone. This region is highlighted by the potential for calm winds and also the fact that it’s possible to see the sun or moon during the night. It also gives people false sense that the storm may be done, when in fact it is only at the half way point. Location B: This region is known as feeder bands that outline the center of the storm. In this region you will see very strong winds and also tornadoes and heavy...

Tropical Cyclones have a life cycle they go through. The first stage is referred to as a wave when the satellite imagery picks up on an area of thunderstorm developing in the ocean in the tropical region. If the thunderstorms hold together and get better organized it will then get upgraded to a tropical depression. During this stage of its life it will have a better organization to its thunderstorms and also the winds will be increasing. The third stage that occurs is the formation of a...

Tropical systems are weather features that form in the tropics and can become very intense areas of low pressure that impact many coastal regions throughout the world. They usually form between 5 and 15 latitude. This is because a tropical system is a vertical extension in the atmosphere of a large thunderstorm development. In order for these thunderstorms to move they need something in the upper levels to help them move. That is where the spinning of the earth comes into play for them which...
