Motion-based nearest vector metric for reference frame selection in the perception of motion
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology Inc., 2016)
We investigated how the visual system selects a reference frame for the perception of motion. Two concentric arcs underwent circular motion around the center of the display, where observers fixated. The outer (target) arc's ...
Aging alters the molecular dynamics of synapses in a sexually dimorphic pattern in zebrafish (Danio rerio)
The zebrafish has become a popular model for studying normal brain aging due to its large fecundity, conserved genome, and available genetic tools; but little data exists about neurobiological age-related alterations. The ...
Short-term dietary restriction in old zebrafish changes cell senescence mechanisms
Brain aging is marked by a decline in cognitive abilities and associated with neurodegenerative disorders. Recent studies have shown, neurogenesis continues into adulthood but is known to be decreasing during advancing age ...
Context-dependent lightness affects perceived contrast
(Elsevier Ltd, 2016)
Perceived contrast of a grating varies with its background (or mean) luminance: of the two gratings with the same photometric contrast the one on higher luminance background appears to have higher contrast. Does perceived ...
