      Such familiar slips, and how we handle them, are the stealth subjects of Sacks’ latest book. “The Mind’s Eye” is a collection of essays — some of which have already appeared in The New Author: Annie Murphy Paul. Written by Clive Gifford, Eye Benders: The Science of Seeing and Believing explains how your brain sees colors, sizes, shapes, and even movements that do not actually exist.

      2) An adult brain weighs about 3 pounds. 3) About 75 percent of the brain is made up of water. This means that dehydration, even in small amounts, can Author: Diana Wells. This short text includes chapters on the eye and its evolution, how and why visual neurons from different species encode the retinal image in the same way, how information theory explains color aftereffects, how different visual cues provide depth information, how the imperfect visual information received by the eye and brain can be rescued by.

The book engages C.P. Snow's theme of two cultures- the humanities and the sciences- and provides an artful window into the science of the mind through his fourteen nicely written chapters that include elegant figures in.

A detailed and inventive study of the thinking at work in modern painting, drawing on a formidable body of scholarly evidence to challenge modernist and phenomenological readings of art history, The Brain-Eye presents a series of interlinked ‘case studies’ in which philosophical thought encounters the hallucinatory sensations unleashed by ‘painter-researchers.’.

The Brain and the Eye. The eye works like a camera. The iris and the pupil control how much light to let into the back of the eye, much like the shutter of a camera.

When it is very dark, our pupils get bigger, letting in more light; when it is very bright our irises constrict, letting in very little light. Muscle eye brain disease (MEB) belongs to a group of genetic, degenerative muscular disorders that are present from birth (congenital muscular dystrophy).

Individuals with this condition are born with muscle weakness (hypotonia), severe nearsightedness, glaucoma, and brain abnormalities. But brain-scanning technology has revealed that the brain’s two hemispheres often work together in complex processing.

Myth: You have only five senses. Fact: You know the basic senses: sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. But other senses are processed in the brain: proprioception (where your body parts are and what they’re doing.

The resulting eye is a mixture of a simple eye within a compound eye. Another version is a compound eye often referred to as "pseudofaceted", as seen in Scutigera.

The BrainHQ brain-training program represents the culmination of 30 years of research in neurological science and related medicine.

Eye and Brain is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal focusing on basic research, clinical findings, and expert reviews in the field of visual science and neuro-ophthalmology. The journal’s unique focus is the link between two well-known visual centres, the eye and the brain, with an emphasis on the importance of such connections.

The human eye has been the subject of endless fascination. Indeed, the very nature of sensory perception is shaped by the visual cues the brain receives, thus rendering the eye one of the most crucial elements in our comprehension of the world. The structures and functions of the eye are examined in this exhaustive volume that describes how we are able to process what we observe and react Reviews: 1.
