Thanks to the work of NEI scientists and grantees, we’re constantly learning new information about the causes and treatment of vision disorders. Get the latest updates about their work — along with other news about NEI.
The IQA is a software system intended for use in importing, displaying, analyzing and managing images acquired with digital fundus cameras. The patented software detects the most common causes of retinal imaging artifacts.
New York University researchers created a “developmental atlas” of gene expression in neurons, using gene sequencing and machine learning to categorize more than 250,000 neurons in the brains of fruit flies.
A new paper in Current Biology details how neurons in area V4, the first stage specific to the brain’s object vision pathway, represent 3D shape fragments, not just the 2D shapes used to study V4 for the last 40 years.
Caltech researchers have combined tools from machine learning and neuroscience to discover that the brain uses a mathematical system to organize visual objects according to their principal components. The work was published June 3 in Nature.
