Old age is associated with reduced mobility of the hand. To investigate age related decline when reaching-to-lift an object we used sophisticated kinematic apparatus to record reaches carried out by healthy older and younger participants. Three objects of different widths were placed at three different distances, with objects having either a high or low(More)
The point of observation translates with eye movement because it is not coincident with the center of rotation in the eye. "Ocular occlusion" results. The amount of optical structure revealed by eye rotation depends on the distances of the occluding and occluded surfaces. The method of adjustment was used in Expt 1 to investigate the amount of structure(More)
The transcriptome of barley Hordeum vulgare grown aboard the International Space Station was studied using microarray analysis. In the spaceflight environment, mRNA levels of over 500 genes were changed more than twofold; among them, genes of stress response proteins, in particular, heat shock proteins, pathogenesis-related proteins, and antioxidant(More)
Results of studies on growth and development of offspring of two genetically marked dwarf pea lines planted during the whole ontogenesis cycle in the Lada space greenhouse on board of Russian Segment of International Space Station (RS ISS) are presented. The offspring of M1 and M2 plants grown from seeds formed during space flight was examined under(More)
The radiative balance of the troposphere, and hence global climate, is dominated by the infrared absorption and emission of water vapor, particularly at far-infrared (far-IR) wavelengths from 15-50 μm. Current and planned satellites observe the infrared region to about 15.4 μm, ignoring spectral measurement of the far-IR region from 15 to 100μm. The(More)

Current and planned satellites observe the infrared region to about 15.4 μm, leaving spectral measurement of the far-IR region unsupported. The far-infrared(More)
control of locomotion. It provides observers with the requisite perceptual information to plan their movements adaptively. For example, walkers must lift their feet to avoid tripping over the curb and veer to avoid slipping on a slick patch of ice. A variety of visual depth cues—texture gradients, linear perspective, occlusion, motion parallax, binocular(More)
