Eye Anatomy and its Inferential Process

Researchers originate a variational solution to this problem and illustrate the plausibility of its implementation in the oculomotor brainstem. We show, through simulation, that the Bayesian filtering equations that implement 'planning as inference' can generate both saccadic and smooth pursuit eye movements.

Organs can Work Together to Regulate Lifespan, New Physiology found

Our bodies are not just passively growing older. Cells and tissues continuously use information from our environments—and from each other—to actively coordinate the aging process. A new study from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute now reveals how some of that cross-talk between tissues occurs in a common model organism.

Weight Loss Surgery Can Reduce The Risk Of Cancer

In this study, researchers estimated that the more weight gained, the higher the risk of cancer. Obesity is the biggest cause of cancer in the UK, after smoking. And with 2 in 3 UK adults either overweight or obese. But while it sounds logical that losing weight would reduce the risk. Most of this evidence comes from studies that have used body mass index (BMI) as a measure of body fat.

Sports Medicine Can Do Without Opioids

The problem of opioid addiction now affects us all. It was reported that a former National Football League quarterback Erik Kramer, tried to commit suicide after his 18-year-old son, a high school quarterback, died of a heroin overdose.

Evaluation Of Involvement In Space For Segmental Bone Defects

Segmental bone defects (SBDs) secondary to trauma invariably result in a prolonged recovery with an extended period of limited weight bearing on the affected limb. Soldiers sustaining blast injuries and civilians sustaining high energy trauma typify such a clinical scenario. These patients frequently sustain composite injuries with SBDs in concert with extensive soft tissue damage.
