Abstract

Vertical fusional movements elicited by stimulation of the non-foveal retina cannot be distinguished from movements elicited by foveal stimulation, except for a difference in the ratio between the amplitude of the response and the amplitude of the stimulus. This ratio is dependent on target configuration and on the retinal area stimulated. In some circumstances, if the size and richness of contour balances against the object fixated at the fovea, bifoveal fixation can be disrupted. It can be assumed that the stimulus for the motor response is made up of foveal as well as peripheral retinal stimulation. it is plausible that there is a gradient over the retina: the influence of the stimulated retinal area decreases form the fovea towards the periphery.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
