Light perception: more than meets the eyes


Mueller, Kaspar P; Neuhauss, Stephan C F (2012). Light perception: more than meets the eyes. Current Biology, 22(21):R912-R914.

Abstract

Larval zebrafish lacking eyes and pineal organ show elevated activity levels and undirected light-seeking behaviour upon loss of illumination. This behaviour, termed dark photokinesis, is mediated by hypothalamic deep brain photoreceptors expressing melanopsin.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
