Visual Attention Patterns Differ in Gynephilic and Androphilic Men and Women Depending on Age and Gender of Targets.

Visual attention patterns measured with eye-tracking techniques provide indirect clues about sexual response. This study aimed to test the category specificity of sexual responses to stimuli varying i...

Mortality salience reduces tactile attention among people with low body esteem.

Death awareness leads to aversion from bodily processes such as breastfeeding and sex, especially among low body-esteem individuals. Using a Modality Bias Task we examined whether primes of death redu...

Androgen Deprivation Therapy and the Risk of Anemia in Men with Prostate Cancer.

The use of androgen deprivation therapy in prostate cancer may be associated with an increased risk of anemia, but the evidence remains limited. This study aimed to determine if androgen deprivation i...

Cognitive Food Processing in Binge-Eating Disorder: An Eye-Tracking Study.

Studies indicate an attentional bias towards food in binge-eating disorder (BED); however, more evidence on attentional engagement and disengagement and processing of multiple attention-competing stim...

Visual deprivation selectively reshapes the intrinsic functional architecture of the anterior insula subregions.

The anterior insula (AI) is the core hub of salience network that serves to identify the most relevant stimuli among vast sensory inputs and forward them to higher cognitive regions to guide behaviour...

Light-deprivation Utilized to Mitigate Amblyopia

Amblyopia is an impairment in spatial vision caused by asymmetry in the quality of visual input across the two eyes during childhood. It is difficult to treat in adulthood because the visu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonspecific term referring to impaired vision. Major subcategories include stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia and toxic amblyopia. Stimulus deprivation-induced amblyopia is a developmental disorder of the visual cortex. A discrepancy between visual information received by the visual cortex from each eye results in abnormal cortical development. STRABISMUS and REFRACTIVE ERRORS may cause this condition. Toxic amblyopia is a disorder of the OPTIC NERVE which is associated with ALCOHOLISM, tobacco SMOKING, and other toxins and as an adverse effect of the use of some medications.

The selecting and organizing of visual stimuli based on the individual's past experience.

A familial form of PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM transmitted as an X-linked recessive trait. These patients have a karyotype of 46,XY with end-organ resistance to androgen due to mutations in the androgen receptor (RECEPTORS, ANDROGEN) gene. Severity of the defect in receptor quantity or quality correlates with their phenotypes. In these genetic males, the phenotypic spectrum ranges from those with normal female external genitalia, through those with genital ambiguity as in Reifenstein Syndrome, to that of a normal male with INFERTILITY.

The absence or restriction of the usual external sensory stimuli to which the individual responds.

The absence of appropriate stimuli in the physical or social environment which are necessary for the emotional, social, and intellectual development of the individual.
