Compared to other sports such as soccer, football, and basketball, it is just as and sometimes more difficult....   [tags: Dance]

That amount of sleep was not the greatest amount, but it was more than most of my friends and family back home.

Amblyopia - Amblyopia This paper provides a brief description of amblyopia and discusses current research regarding the motion pathway in individuals with amblyopia. Amblyopia is a condition in which visual acuity in one eye is greatly reduced. It is caused by lack of stimulation or disuse during visual development (Rose, 1998). Because the eye is not fully developed at birth (Jarvis, 1992, as cited in Rose, 1998), infants need stimulation to complete the visual neural pathway. When one or both eyes are inhibited, for example due to misalignment of one eye (strabismus) or a large difference in refractive power between two eyes (anisometropia), the neural pathway for the inhibited eye develops abnorma...   [tags: Medicine Medical Eye Papers]

The Reference Signal Model - Eye movements are often made over a stationary background, which means that the retinal image contains information about eye velocity. Reference signal models therefore combine extra-retinal, retinal and vestibular information to generate a single compound signal. Since retinal motion generating extra-retinal information is somewhat contradictory, the extra-retinal signal of the classical model is replaced by a reference signal (Wertheim, 1994). Figure 2.3 presents a schematic for a simple reference signal model, which does not include vestibular information....   [tags: Medical Science] 1731 words
