Herpes Simplex Virus Epithelial Keratitis: In Vivo Morphology in the Human Cornea


COVER
Product Description:

This book on Herpes Simplex Virus Epithelial Keratitis shows a kind of ‘living histology’, revealing both morphological and dynamic features of the disease, and explaining mechanisms behind them. It offers great insights helpful for the differential diagnostics and the recognition of less known variants as well as of complications. It is also highly useful for the follow–up of treatment results and the differentiation between an active infection and sequelae. Thus, this book will be an invaluable aid for ophthalmologists and researchers working with ocular surface diseases.

The Artisan Lens: Effects on Vision Quality, the Corneal Endothelium and Vision-Related Quality of Life


Abstract: Refractive errors are the most frequent disorders of the eye. In the ideal refractive state, emmetropia, an image is focused directly on the retina, resulting in the perception of a sharp image in a healthy visual system. Such eyes do not require glasses or contact lenses to see sharply. Most eyes, however, have some degree of refractive error, although correction is not always required. In myopia (nearsightedness), the image appears focused anterior to the retina, producing a sharp image at near and a blurred image at distance. A concave lens (minus Diopter) is required to sharpen the image. The reverse is true in hypermetropia (also known as hyperopia or farsightedness), where the image is projected posterior to the retina, producing a blurred image at near and a sharper image at distance. A convex lens (plus Diopter) is required to produce a clear image. Astigmatism (cylindrical error) is the result of two different refractive powers between two perpendicular meridians. A cylindrical correction can correct this problem. Extreme cases of all these
refractive errors
can cause severe visual loss. Anisometropia is the presence of two significantly different
refractive errors
. In these situations, simple spectacle correction is not always suitable due to aniseikonia (different sized images) resulting from the different powers in the lenses; other options such as contact lenses or surgery can then be considered. When
refractive errors
and
anisometropia
are not corrected aptly, diminished binocular vision and/or amblyopia could result.

Binocular Rivalry

Binocular Rivalry

Product Description

Researchers today in neuroscience and cognitive psychology increasingly turn their attention to binocular rivalry and other forms of perceptual ambiguity or bistability. The study of fluctuations in visual perception in the face of unchanging visual input offers a means for understanding the link between neural events and visual events, including visual awareness. Some neuroscientists believe that binocular rivalry reveals a fundamental aspect of human cognition and provides a way to isolate and study brain areas involved in attention and selection. The eighteen essays collected in Binocular Rivalry present the most recent theoretical and empirical work on this key topic by leading researchers in the field.

After the opening chapter’s overview of the major characteristics of binocular rivalry in their historical contexts, the contributors consider topics ranging from the basic phenomenon of perceptual ambiguity to brain models and neural networks. The essays illustrate the potential power of the study of perceptual ambiguity as a tool for learning about the neural concomitants of visual awareness, or, as they have been called, the “neural correlates of consciousness.”
