  • Eye And Brain
    1,094 words
    The Secret of Seeing The lights are off, visibility zero, you here a noise, you get up and fall over your table; now imagine that experience your whole life by being blind. There is more then what meets the eye when we refer to sight. The eye can be surgically trained to see but the mind can not identify the object if it has never been seen. When blind patients feel an object they know what it is because that is how the brain has been trained to identify objects. Those who are deprived of sight ...
  • Its Prey And The T Rex
    445 words
    Tyrannosaurus Rex was the dominant predator in the late Cretaceous period. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, or T-Rex for short, lived about 85 million to 65 million years ago. T-Rex often resided in moist, humid, semi-tropical areas, usually near rivers or forested swamps. T-Rex fossils have been found in North America and Mongolia. The T-Rex was a large, dangerous predator that walked on two powerful legs. It had tiny arms with two fingers each. Their feet resembled birds and were fully equipped with gar...
  • Lens Of The Eye
    548 words
    Land animals have eyes, which adapt to their natural surroundings and help protect themselves from predators, and also help them find food to eat. Every land animal has a different gift which their eyes can do, and the gifts they are given are different, depending on what they are and need to do. The eye is a light-sensitive organ of vision in animals. The eyes of various species vary from simple structures that are capable only of seeing the difference between light and dark to complex structur...
  • V 1 Area Of The Human Brain
    1,940 words
    My research paper is about the anatomy of an optical illusion. Optical Illusions are relevant to aviation in that the main guidance system of most aircraft on most flights is the pilot's eyes. Everyone, including pilots, is susceptible to an optical illusion. The hazards of optical illusions are many considering that at any time during the flight they can cause a healthy and experienced pilot to become confused, delusional and generally disoriented with obvious possible consequences. This is why...
  • Part Of The Brain
    1,298 words
    My project question is, How fast does the brain read geometric shapes compared to optical illusions I will try to find this out by experimenting, reading, and researching the resources that I have acquired. I have planned my experiments using two simple procedures. In the first, I will draw a puzzle of different color shapes. I will give the test subject a piece of paper with a shape from the puzzle on it. I will have them study the paper. Then I will reveal the puzzle to them and ask them to fi...
  • Evoked Potential Uses Stimulation Of The Body
    2,749 words
    Engineering in Medicine: Evoked Potentials Today, there are many forms of imaging available to the medical profession. Among the more well-known types include x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, PET scans, and the most groundbreaking, the MRI. One lesser known form of imaging is the technique of evoked potentials. The evoked potential uses stimulation of the body to force activity in the brain. Using electrodes, a clinician can take signals directly from the brain without any intrusive methods. The e...
  • Eye The Picture
    657 words
    How do we see? Most people would just say that we see with our eyes and this is true but it is also more complicated than that. In some ways the eye is a bit like a camera that sends images to our brain but it is very sensitive and can be easily damaged. The eye itself is a very compact and complex apparatus. The eye is only around 25 mm wide and deep and slightly less in height. A complex set of 6 muscles (known as the extra ocular muscles) attached to the outside of the eye help it to move in ...
  • Lower Left Center Part Of The Painting
    1,075 words
    The human mind is a very powerful tool and organ. There are however imperfections in the way it processes things. Illusions for example, are visual stimuli that trick the brain because the brain cannot process all visual images correctly. Why do we see puddles forming up the road while we are driving in our cars on a hot summer day? Why do some parts of a drawing look bigger when in fact they are smaller? There have been many artists that have used illusions in their paintings, M.C. Escher, Scot...
