Why some animals have smaller eyes: Lifestyle matters

...roportionately big eyes gaze out from those little round faces. By three months, our eyes are as big as they'll ever be -- at least from outward appearances: The corneas have reached their full width, although inside the eyes, the neurobiologist notes, the front-to-back length will increase somewhat. Then ...

Funding to commercialize technologies of UC San Diego engineers tops $1.2 million

San Diego, CA, July 14, 2004 - In its fifth round of funding since being set up in 2001, the William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at the University of California, San Diego today awarded $300,000 to six projects. That brings total funding so far to more than $1...

"Although these kinds of errors may leave the conclusions of a study unchanged, they are indicative of poor practice," say the researchers. "Our concern is that these kinds of errors are probably present in all numeric...
