  1. Why old people don't drive at night

    Learned this in pathophysiology today...

    Most people know about the rod and cone structure of the retina in the eye. The cones see colors while the rods see light reflecting off objects. The more rods you have, the less light you need bouncing off an object to see it. In other words, more rods = better night vison.

    One of the changes in the eye caused by aging is a decrease in rods (but not cones). If you don't have enough rods, you need an object to be lit up more ...
  2. The "end times"--why do we study it?
