Scientists had long believed that the processing in our visual system is mostly done in the visual cortex at the back of the brain. However, a new study from a Vanderbilt University and Boston University has found that some significant processing actually occurs along the way – in the thalamus.
LGN 365 designed by JC Deen is a new strength training program that teaches people how to lose weight and build lean muscle mass at the same time.
An unexpected discovery has led scientists to open an intriguing new window into the human brain, via the visual system.
This project, known as e-Moto, was created and developed by LGN Tech Design, a spin-off company that has its origins in a line of research begun in the Laboratorio de MÃ¡quinas (MAQLAB â€“ Machine Laboratory) of UC3M and receives support from the University's Vice-Chancellor's Office of Research through the Business Incubator UC3M Science Park.
Melanopsin, a light sensor that sets the circadian rhythm- the bodyâ€™s biological clock- also plays an important role in vision, according to this study.
Better known as the light sensor that sets the body's biological clock, melanopsin also plays an important role in vision: Via its messengers-so-called melanopsin-expressing retinal ganglion cells, or mRGCs-it forwards information about the brightness of incoming light directly to conventional visual centers in the brain.
