|Mice Get “Super Vision” With An Eye Injections Given by Scientists|
It goes straight to Marvel Comic Book: Test subjects provide the ability to see infrared light, similarly how Knight-Vision goggles work - but without weird and heavy mechanisms.
Scientists at the Science and Technology University of China injected small nanoparticles, which bind the retina into test-eyed puppets, causing researchers to call them "Super Vision".
In the new research described in a research paper published in the journal Cell today, researchers injected "ocular injectable photoreceptor-binding upconversion nanoparticles" in the eyes of rats.
Stunning results: After injection, mice were able to see the invisible near-infrared light normally - both human and mice are generally unable to experience light with a wavelength greater than 700 nanometers - effectively "mammals Vision ", according to the paper.
The principle is that there are nanoparticles tied with retinal cells responsible for converting light signals into electrical signals. To test the process, scientists shine infrared light directly into the eyes of rats, to see if they will react. The mice of the mice were injected with the nanoparticles pupils, showing that they could "see" infrared light. There were no control of mice control without injection.
Fortunately, injection does not interfere in any way with the normal sight of mice. Scientists did not report any other long term loss except cornea - which ended for a day or two.
So what are the applications of this kind of technology? Scientists believe that such nanoparticles can help in the repair of vision in humans, which experience a reduction in retinal work. This can prove to be less invasive than other traditional vision repair methods, and with fewer side effects.
