During visual fixation, the eyes make fast involuntary miniature movements known as microsaccades (MSs). When MSs are executed they displace the visual image over the retina and can generate neural modulation along the visual pathway. However, the effects of MSs on neural activity have substantial variability and are not fully understood. By utilizing(More)
Seeds of Matthiola incana contain oil rich (55-65%) in (n-3) linolenic acid. Selected lines were developed and evaluated for their agronomic and chemical parameters. Extracted oil was fed for 6 weeks to rats, which were compared with rats fed a diet containing coconut oil or sunflower oil. Cholesterol levels were significantly lowest in rats fed diets rich(More)
The role of primary visual cortex (V1) in encoding physical stimulus features is well known, while stimulus categorization is mainly attributed to higher visual areas. However, visual experience is not stripped down to invariant, categorical-only "labels." Rather, visual experiences are remarkably rich with details resulting in high-resolution perception of(More)
