In South America, a burrowing rodent, the tuco-tuco, or Ctenomys, is even more subterranean in its habits than the mole; and I was assured by a Spaniard, who had often caught them, that they were frequently blind; one which I kept alive was certainly in this condition, the cause, as appeared on dissection, having been inflammation of the nictitating
Reid considers it to be the effect of inflammation in the nictitating
Corneal sensitivity was considered present if the bird blinked its eyelids or flashed the nictitating
membrane when the cotton wisp was applied; it was considered absent if no such response was observed, and diminished if the response was less robust than in cohort birds.
The generality of blocking effects in respondent conditioning research has already been established in preparations as diverse as the rabbit nictitating
membrane response (Gibbs et at.
The plica semilunaris is thought to be the remains of a nictitating
membrane or third eyelid (from the Latin nictare, meaning blink).
Follicular (mucoid) conjunctivitis is a condition in which the small mucous glands (follicles) on the underside of the nictitating
membrane react to an eye irritant or infection by forming a rough, cobblestone surface that irritates the eye and produces a mucoid discharge.
Singleunit analysis of different hippocampal cell types during classical conditioning of rabbit nictitating
In this understanding, Adam's scaly skin also included a covering over his eyes, something akin to the nictitating
membrane, which only opened after eating of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge: And the eyes of them both were opened (Gen.
Sharks showing an absence of movements or reaction of the nictitating
membrane to light touching of the eye were deemed dead and were not tagged (i.
Lung, nasal turbinate, nasal septum, larynx, trachea, bronchus, tracheobronchial lymph node, nictitating
membrane, tonsil, heart, liver, spleen, kidney, pancreas, duodenum, jejunum, colon, adrenal gland, brain, and olfactory bulb samples were obtained, were fixed in formalin, and processed to obtain sections for staining with hematoxylin and eosin.
Frogs like this red-eyed treefrog shield their peepers with a nictitating
membrane--a semitransparent, third eyelid.
It involves snipping a tiny piece of lymphoid tissue from the animal's nictitating
membrane, or third eyelid, staining it with antibodies, and examining it under a microscope.
