FusionOpticsTM - The New Dimension of Stereomicroscopy
Up to 80 percent of our experience of our visual environment takes place via our visual perception. Without spatial vision, we would hardly be able to stay oriented. In recent decades, the neurosciences have gained many insights into the complex processes by which our brain's visual cortex and cerebral cortex do the fascinating job of processing the signals originating from the eyes into an image. A study carried out jointly by Leica Microsystems and the Institute of Neuroinformatics at the University of Zurich and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology showed how flexible and powerfull our brain joins visual signals to create an optimal spatial image. The results provided the basis for an innovation in stereomicroscopy which, in terms of resolution and focus depth, has broken through limits that were previously impossible to overcome....
