The Visually Impaired Reach For Objects In Space Using Device That Converts Images Into Music
2012-07-05 12:07:20

Research results reported in Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience Sensory substitution devices (SSDs) use sound or touch to help the visually impaired perceive the visual scene surrounding them. The ideal SSD would assist not only in sensing the environment but also in performing daily activities based on this input. For example, accurately reaching for a coffee cup, or shaking a friend's hand. In a new study, scientists trained blindfolded sighted participants to perform fast and...

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com Sight. Sound. Touch. These are just a few of the senses that the body has. This theme of senses was the subject of a recent study by neuroscientists from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) who reported a relationship between touch and emotion via the brain´s primary somatosensory cortex. The findings, described in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), were discovered by researchers Valeria Gazzola...

Researchers at the RUB and from Durham report Patients who are blind in one side of their visual field benefit from presentation of sounds on the affected side. After passively hearing sounds for an hour, their visual detection of light stimuli in the blind half of their visual field improved significantly. Neural pathways that simultaneously process information from different senses are responsible for this effect. "We have embarked on a whole new therapy approach" says PD Dr....

Two Blind Men Receive Some Sight Through Eye Implants
2012-05-04 05:05:10

Two blind men have received sight for the first time in years due to new advances in medical science. The Oxford Eye Hospital and King's College Hospital in London have been carrying out a clinical trial that helps restore sight to the blind, at least partially, through eye implants. Chris James and Robin Millar lost their vision due to a condition known as retinitis pigmentosa, which is when the photoreceptor cells at the back of the eye eventually cease to function. A 0.12-inch...

Women Have Bigger Pupils Than Men
2012-04-26 10:23:25

From an anatomical point of view, a normal, non-pathological eye is known as an emmetropic eye, and has been studied very little until now in comparison with myopic and hypermetropic eyes. The results show that healthy emmetropic women have a wider pupil diameter than men. SINC Normal, non-pathological emmetropic eyes are the most common type amongst the population (43.2%), with a percentage that swings between 60.6% in children from three to eight years and 29% in those older than 66....

How Your Eyes Deceive You
2012-04-24 05:02:24

People rely on their eyes for most things they do — yet the information provided by our visual sensing system is often distorted, unreliable and subject to illusion. Researchers at The Vision Centre, Australia, are throwing new light on the tricks the brain plays on its owner as it struggles to make sense of the visual and other sensory signals it constantly receives. “We tend to regard what we see as ℠the real world´,” says Dr Isabelle Mareschal, a...

Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
