submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource please see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=6978. In today's tip I will feature the data distribution summaries and their drill down features which you can see from many RCSB PDB searches.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 3: The Evolution of Trichromatic Color Vision (43:26)

submitted by: scivee-team

The third lecture describes recent work on the evolution of trichromatic color vision in humans and our primate relatives.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 2: Human Color Vision and its Variations (44:33)

submitted by: scivee-team

The second lecture focuses on the photoreceptors that mediate human color vision and the molecular basis for the common inherited anomalies of color vision.

The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 1B: Photoreceptors and Image Processing (35:22)

submitted by: scivee-team

In this set of lectures, Jeremy Nathans explores the molecular mechanisms within the retina that mediate the first steps in vision. The first lecture focuses on the structure of the light sensing receptors, the intracellular signals that are triggered by light absorption, and the ways in which the retina extracts information from a complex scene.

WSM - Wave Structure of Matter - Overview

submitted by: RayTomes
WSM is used to mean the concept of matter really being fully explicable as spherical standing wave structures. By studying the possible actual structure forms we can understand how de Broglie's results make perfect sense and be in the company of de Broglie and Shroedinger who held to this view rather than one based only on probabilities.
