Sample Text:
" It was created to provide affordable reading glasses to people with presbyopia living in low- income communities in Australia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Presbyopia is a natural condition whereby the lens of the eye loses its flexibility, resulting in blurry vision. iCare identified that a large proportion of poor populations in its four target countries suffered from presbyopia and that they would benefit from reading glasses in terms of improved quality of life and increased productivity. Many people in these regions do not know that there is a simple and affordable solution to presbyopia, and therefore do not look for opportunities to buy reading glasses even if they are available. The majority of p...

Seeing the World: Perspectives from Vision Science

This student studied:
University of New South Wales - VISN1101 - Seeing the World: Perspectives from Vision Science

• LEVELS OF ORGANISATION: chemical  cellular  tissue  organ  body system  organism • Cellular:  Specific combinations, arrangements and binding of molecules form cells o Cells are the fundamental structural and functional units of a living organism 
 o Exist alone or as a group in a multicellular organism 
 • Basic Function of Cells: Nutrient and oxygen  energy (eliminate waste/by products) • Synthesise proteins and other components for cells structure/growth/function • Specialised cell functions in multicellular organisms • Cell Diversity: Morphology (diff shape, size, structure and bio chemistry) & Specialisation Cell to Cell Adhesions • Plasma membrane of cells not only act as the outer boundary – adhesion • Cell Adhesion Molecules: o Proteins that protrude from outer membrane surface to form loops and hooks o Binds to other cells or extracellular matrix • Extracellular Matrix (ECM) o Molecules secreted by cells – meshwork of proteins embedded in interstitial fluid o Structural and biochemical support • Specialised cell junctions Desmosomes (adhering) Tight Junctions (impermeable) Gap Junctions (communicating) • Attach two non-touching cells • Strongest • Plaque located in the inner surface, filaments link adjacent cells • Adjacent cells bind at point of direct contact • Seal off passageway between cells = prevents movements of materials between cells • Adjacent cells connected by small connecting tunnels (connexion): hollow tube like structure that extends through the plasma membrane • Communicating Junctions – molecules, ions & electrical impulses to directly pass through regulated gate between channels Tissue • Cells combine to form tissue • Various types: muscle, nervous, epithelial, connective • Muscle Tissues: contracting  tension  movement o Skeletal: Skeleton o Smooth: Tubes and Organs e.g. digestive track o Cardiac: Height • Nervous Tissues: initiating and transmitting electrical impulses (brain body) o Brain, spinal chord, nerves and special sense organs • Epithelial Tissue: exchanging materials between cell and environment o Epithelial sheets – tightly joined cells, lining covers body o Secretory glands: specialised epithelial tissue (secretion) • Connective Tissues: connecting, supporting and anchoring various body parts o E.g. blood Organs • Two or more types of primary tissue organised to perform a particular function(s) • Groups of organs  body systems • Body is made of 11  Homeostasis • Maintenance of a relatively stable internal environment o Establish optimal condition, balanced and steady state • Functions performed by each body system  contribute to homeostasis o Detect deviations from normal internal environ.  integrate information & make adjustments • Control systems: 1. Intrinsically controlled: built into or inherent in an organ 2. Extrinsically controlled: initiated outside an organ to alter organ activity • Negative Feedback Control: change stimulates a response that seeks to restore to normal by moving the factor in the opposite direction of its initial change • Positive Feed Control: change stimulates a response that seeks to restore normal by enhancing or amplifying the change – same direction of initial change • Feed Forward Control: anticipate and prevent change

VISN1101 Full Notes

This student studied:
University of New South Wales - VISN1101 - Seeing the World: Perspectives from Vision Science

Lecture notes for the whole semester. Course Information After completing this course, you will never see the world the same way again. This course provides an overview of how the eyes and brain work together to enable visual perception. The overview includes an introduction to the structure and function of the human eye and visual brain. You will also learn about the professional pathways open to vision scientists and optometrists and how discoveries in optometry and vision science are used to improve vision and combat disease. The course also builds the graduate attributes required by vision scientists and optometrists by providing an introduction to research and communication skills including critical thinking, statistics, collaborative research and group presentation. It is the first course in the vision science major in the science or advanced science programs and in the optometry program.
