Echolocation: a ‘sixth sense’ for blind people http://wp.me/p3LuXq-1V

Echolocation: a 'sixth sense' for blind people Could echolocation - a skill commonly linked with bats - be used as a "sixth sense" for blind people? Researchers have found that blind people using echolocation are just as susceptible to visual illusions as sighted people. Echolocation is a process whereby sound waves are used to determine the location and size of objects within a particular area. Returning sound waves rebounding from objects provide positional information to those that are unable to see them. [ 549 more words. ]

Groundbreaking wireless material may restore sight to blind retinas The aging process affects everything from cardiovascular function to memory to sexuality. Most worrisome for many, however, is the potential loss of eyesight due to retinal degeneration. New progress towards a prosthetic retina could help alleviate conditions that result from problems with this vital part of the eye. An encouraging new study published in Nano Letters describes a revolutionary novel device, tested on animal-derived retinal models, that has the potential to treat a number of eye diseases.
