  1. 1. Improving Peripheral Vision Through Optical Correction and Stimulus Motion

    Author : Peter Lewis; Peter Unsbo; Linda Lundström; Jörgen Gustafsson; Michael Crossland; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; absolute central scotoma; central visual field loss; eccentric viewing; preferred retinal locus; open-view aberrometer; off-axis refractive errors; eccentric correction; dynamic visual acuity; spatial contrast sensitivity; temporal contrast sensitivity; spatio-temporal contrast sensitivity; Optometry; Optometri; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : The loss of central vision subsequent to macular disease is often extremely debilitating. People with central field loss (CFL) must use other peripheral areas of the retina in order to see; areas with inferior resolution capacity, which are also affected by off-axis optical errors.

  2. 2. Spatial Vision in Bees : Behavioural investigation of spatial resolution and contrast sensitivity

    Author : Aravin Chakravarthi; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Keywords : Insect vision; Honeybees; Bumblebees; Spatial resolution; Contrast sensitivity; Motion detection; Object discrimination;

    Abstract : Bees use multiple sensory modalities to perform day-to-day tasks. Light allows them to perceive objects and the general features of their surroundings, enabling them to find food and to navigate safely across the landscape. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bone Conduction Hearing in Human Communication - Sensitivity, Transmission, and Applications

    Author : Sabine Reinfeldt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcutaneous; one s own voice; bone conduction; occlusion effect; communication system; sensitivity; bone conduction implant; transmission; bone-anchored hearing aid; bone conduction microphone;

    Abstract : Sound perceived via Bone Conduction (BC) consists of vibrations transmitted to the cochleae through the skull bone from either one's own voice, the surrounding sound field, or a BC transducer. In two-way communication systems, BC is believed to improve the sound quality when used in specific environments, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cold Sensitivity in injured and normal hands. Consequences for daily life

    Author : Ingela Carlsson; Malmö Handkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Behavioural treatment; cold sensitivity; Cold Intolerance Symptom Severity questionnaire; cold intolerance; Cold Sensitivity Severity scale; hand injury; health-related quality of life; hand-arm vibration syndrome; occupation; Potential Work Exposure Scale;

    Abstract : Cold sensitivity is a common and persistent complaint after various hand injuries and diseases. The general aim of the thesis was to investigate the consequences of cold sensitivity for daily life in patients with traumatic hand injuries and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). READ MORE

  5. 5. On contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography of the aortoiliac arteries

    Author : Johan Wikström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Magnetic resonance imaging; Magnetic resonance angiography; Contrast media; Arteriosclerosis; Iliac artery; Blood pressures; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; radiologi; Radiology;

    Abstract : In contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA),vascular signal is produced by the acquisition of a T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging scan while the presence of a contrast agent induces a low T1 in blood. In this thesis,CE-MRA of the aortoiliac arteries was evaluated. READ MORE
