Researchers find individual brains react to images differently. The differences in neural activity was enough for computer systems to identify each person's 'brainprint' with 100 percent accuracy.
A new study reveals how motion sensing neurons are linked to other cells in the eye.
Researchers use coherent control to control the function of a living cell.
Where objects appear in a person's visual field can affect the ability to determine what the object is, researchers say.
Researchers report retinal degeneration could be one of the earliest signs of FTD in people who have a genetic risk for the disorder.
In cognitively healthy people with a genetic risk for Alzheimer's, retinal changes have been associated with alterations in the entorhinal cortex, hippocampus, and lingual gyrus. Researchers say retinal changes can be used to track changes in brain structures associated with Alzheimer's in those with genetic risk factors.
A team of University of California, Berkeley, scientists in collaboration with researchers at the University of Munich and University of Washington, in Seattle, has discovered a chemical that temporarily restores some vision to blind mice, and is working on an improved compound that may someday allow people with degenerative blindness to see again.
Researchers have identified a common mechanism in both frontotemporal dementia and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis.
Using computer models, researchers discover melanopsin pigment in the eye is more sensitive to light than rhodopsin pigment.
