comment What is the limit of time resolution in fMRI?
I don't think it excels in spatial domain either. Though there has been a recent report about correlations at a single neuron level. See Schulz, K., Sydekum, E., Krueppel, R., Engelbrecht, C. J., Schlegel, F., Schroter, A., Rudin, M., and Helmchen, F. (2012). Simultaneous BOLD fMRI and fiber-optic calcium recording in rat neocortex. Nat Meth, 9(6):597-602. dx.doi.org/10.1038/nmeth.2013

@ChrisStronks pigment depletion can be thought of as a form of adaptation. I guess 'gain control' would be a wrong analogy though. Thanks for your comment and answer.

comment Why does strenous exercise cause vision of “lights”?
interesting that you see hexagonal shapes. Hexagons often appear in 2D sensory processing due to its relation to sphere packing.

comment Hair loss in a nuclear submarine?
The question is not clear. Can you improve it by providing more context and writing out what you are asking? Specifically, are you talking about nuclear submarines?
