This paper presents the author's scientific hypothesis on the effect of fractal flickering, which exhibits scale invariance with time, on the evoked responses of the retina (electroretinogram (ERG)) and visual cortex (visual-evoked cortical potentials (VEP)) in norm and neurodegenerative disorders. A new approach for ERG and VEP studies is proposed. In the proposed approach, standard stimuli are presented to patients as these patients adapt to the flickering background with specific chaotic…

Фрактальная фототерапия в нейропротекции глаукомы
TLDR
The pronounced effect of fractal stimulation revealed in eyes with POAG III suggests that even in advanced stages of glaucoma in the general population of retinal ganglion cells there is a significant percentage of cells that are still at the plastic stage of reversible functional changes and can respond positively to therapy.
Fractal Phototherapy in Neuroprotection of Glaucoma
TLDR
The pronounced effect of fractal stimulation revealed in eyes with POAG III suggests that even in advanced stages of glaucoma in the general population of retinal ganglion cells there is a significant percentage of cells that are still at the plastic stage of reversible functional changes and can respond positively to therapy.
The Prospects of Applying of Technologies of Nonlinear Stimulation Therapy to Treat Amblyopia
TLDR
The theory of ‘fractality of sensation’ justifies the need to maintain a complex nonlinear dynamics in diseases of the retina and the brain, and in different situations that lead to simplification of the pattern of neural activity and brain structure.

TLDR
It is expected that the use of stimuli with fractal structure can help to restore the retina and brain’s functions in neurodegenerative diseases by reactivation of neuronal plasticity and be an innovative method for the treatment of neurodegenersative disorders.

Measurements of visual evoked potentials in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
In 5 patients the latency became less prolonged on levodopa therapy, suggesting that catecholaminergic pathways have either indirect or direct effects on the generation of visual evoked potentials.

TLDR
It was showed that delayed sleep had no significant effect on the complexity of the diurnal pattern of these hormones, and that the diurn pattern of the GH levels was more complex than that of the PRL levels.

TLDR
This review will cover recent findings on retinal degeneration in AD, pathological similarities between AD and eye diseases, and highlight the potential of modern technologies for the detection of prospective biomarkers in the eye in early AD.
Fractal fluctuations in human respiration.
TLDR
The results indicate that, in most cases, apparently random fluctuations in respiratory pattern are, in fact, correlated over more than one time scale, and suggest that fractal fluctuations in breath number, respiratory period, and breath amplitude are controlled by separate processes.

TLDR
Using multiscale entropy analysis, it is shown that the postural sway dynamics of healthy young and healthy elderly subjects are more complex than that of elderly subjects with a history of falls.
Cone photoreceptor contributions to noise and correlations in the retinal output
TLDR
C cone noise, traversing the retina through diverse pathways, accounts for most of the noise and correlations in the retinal output and constrains how higher centers exploit signals carried by parallel visual pathways.
Tau Proteins and Neurofibrillary Degeneration
TLDR
The paired helical filament is the major fibrous component of neurofibrillary pathology in Alzheimer's disease and the microtubule‐associated protein tau forms an important, if not the sole, constituent of the pairedHelical filament.
