Summary of "Reduced Contrast Sensitivity is Associated With Elevated Equivalent Intrinsic Noise in Type 2 Diabetics Who Have Mild or No Retinopathy."

To evaluate explanations for contrast sensitivity (CS) losses in subjects who have mild nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) or no diabetic retinopathy (NDR) by measuring and modeling CS in luminance noise.

Absent or reduced sensitivity to cutaneous stimulation.

A state of decreased activity in animals characterized by depressed metabolism, reduced body temperature, and low sensitivity to external stimuli.
