Brown University A neuroscience study provides new insight into the primal brain circuits involved in collision avoidance, and perhaps a more general model of how neurons can participate in networks to process information and act on it. In the study, Brown University neuroscientists tracked the cell-by-cell progress of neural signals from the eyes through the brains of tadpoles as they saw and reacted to stimuli including an apparently approaching black circle. In so doing, the...

Newborn Night-Waking Has A Detrimental Health Impact On Parents

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the hardest parts of new parenthood is never getting enough sleep. Once an hour, every night, the baby cries out for food, comfort, or to be cleaned. Most new parents report feeling more exhausted in the morning than they did the night before. Professor Avi Sadeh led a team of researchers from Tel Aviv University's (TAU) School of Psychological Sciences to conduct the first study to examine why interrupted sleep can be as...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe online Ask any emergency room nurse or doctor and they will tell you that the effect on human behavior of a full moon cannot be denied. Besides anecdotal accounts of general human lunacy when the moon looms large in the night sky, there has been murmurs for some time in the scientific community that the Earth's natural satellite also affects our sleep. All studies thus far have been inconclusive. As reported in Time Magazine and other...

Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
