As well as aiding ingress and egress for driver and passengers, this step reduces the apparent depth of the bodywork and raises the concept's visual center of gravity for a 'go anywhere' SUV-like appearance.
Since brain activity was recorded simultaneously in the hippocampus and the cerebral cortex, the researchers were able to demonstrate that the ripples were synchronized with cortical activation, specifically in the visual centers of the brain where the detailed visual information is likely to be stored.
9:30 am The sixth scientific conference on "How to manage and make visual centers a success" in the presence of French expert and international author Jean-Patrick Moradian, at the invitation of the Licensed Association for Measuring and Manufacturing Optical Devices in Lebanon, under the patronage of Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri.
DISCUSSION: Retina acts as a transducer to convert light energy to neuronal signals and which is directly propotinal to illuminance Light sensitive photo receptors cones hyperpolarize in response to light and these cells translate the visual image impinging upon the retina into continuous action potentials which propagates along the optic pathway to the visual centers within the brain.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The way that the visual centers of men and women's brains works is different, a new research said, adding that men have greater sensitivity to fine detail and rapidly moving stimuli, but women are better at discriminating between colors.
Damage to the afferent visual pathway, from the retina to visual centers in the brain, can result in severe blindness, loss of central and/or peripheral visual fields, various types of hemianopia or homonymous field defects, and loss or changes in visual acuity (Cockerham et al., 2009).
Trauma can disrupt vision at many points along the afferent visual pathway, from the retina to the visual centers in the brain.
A few individuals--Dave Gray (xplane.com) and Dan Roam (thebackofthenapkin.com), to name just two--are starting to move business in this direction, and have shown that tapping more effectively into our visual centers simply makes good sense--and good business.
Unrelated PET scans have shown that imaginary images are produced in the same visual centers of the brain as images of external stimuli.
