Blind Spot Enlargement In Non Athletes
1,160 wordsEveryone has a blind spot in the visual field caused by an absence of nerves on the retinal wall where the nerve ganglia enter. Our brains 'correct' this blind spot by filling-in the missing information so that we do not notice the blind spot in normal, daily activity. There have been a few studies conducted to determine how the brain compensates for the phenomenon. Recent studies indicate that in certain people seeking chiropractic treatment, unequal blind spots result from musculoskeletal misa...

Carbon Dioxide Methane Nitrous Oxide
705 wordsThe earth s climate is predicted to change because human activities are altering the chemical composition of the atmosphere through the buildup of greenhouse gases primarily carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. The heat-trapping property of these gases is undisputed. Although uncertainty exists about exactly how earth s climate responds to these gases, global temperatures are rising. Energy from the sun drives the earth s weather and climate, and heats the earth s surface; in turn, the ea...
