New Trends in Basic and Clinical Research of Glaucoma: A Neurodegenerative Disease of the Visual System - Part B is the latest volume fromProgress in Brain Research focusing on new trends in basic and clinical research of glaucoma. This established international series examines major areas of basic and clinical research within neuroscience, as well as emerging subfields.
I have been asked to write a brief foreword to this volume honoring Hisako Ikeda, providing a review of the accomplishments in our field over the past four decades, when Hisako was an active participant. This I am delighted to do. It has been a most exciting time in vision research and Hisako has been right in the middle of much of the excitement, publishing on a wide variety of topics and providing much new data and many new insights. Hisako's research career can be divided by decades into four quite distinct areas of inquiry. In the 1950s, as a student in Japan, her research interests were psychophysical in nature, and she was concerned with visual illusions, figural aftereffects, and motion detec- tion. In the 1960s, after her move to London, she began electrophysiological studies. Much of her work in the 1960s was concerned with the electroretinogram (ERG), its components, and the use of this electrical response for evaluating spectral sensitivities of the eye and retinal degenerations. This work represented the beginning of her electrodiagnostic clinical work, which continued until her retirement.
Fluid Mechanics is that study of fluid motion involving a rational method of approach based on general physical laws and consistent with the results of modern experimental study. The work fluid implies a treatment of both liquids and gases. Fluid mechanics uses the same principles employed in the mechanics of solids. The aim of this book is to present an introduction to the fundamentals of fluid mechanics. Attempts have been made to provide a balance treatment in a logical fashion, and to keep physical concepts and basic quantitative relations in the foreground. Several pedagogical tools that help reader visualize the many difficult phenomena of fluid mechanics. Explanations are based on the physical concepts as well as mathematics which are accessible to undergraduate engineering students. The text help engineering students develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics by emphasizing the physics. Figures were specially prepared in order to illustrate key ideas, relevant concepts and explain general types of apparatus.
A GUIDE TO WORKING WITH VISUAL LOGIC helps you and your students maximize the Visual Logic software. The book clearly introduces Visual Logic as a simple, but powerful, tool for mastering programming logic and design without traditional high-level programming language syntax. Visual Logic uses flowcharts to explain essential programming concepts, including variables, input, assignment, output, conditions, loops, procedures, graphics, arrays, and files.
Why do so many people have trouble with prayer and meditation when it seems to come so easily for others? Why do some of us feel that it's so mysterious and elusive that it seems beyond our reach? Is it possible that the answers can be found by simply embracing our own human nature? In this book, Mike conveys the message that when we are struggling with prayer and meditation, we are fighting against a perfectly normal and natural part of our humanity. Any beginner will be pleased to discover that prayer, meditation and spirituality are completely natural aspects of our humanity, and not so mysterious after all. It's only a matter of keeping it simple.
