Snake Effect: A Novel Haptic Illusion

We current a novel, movement-based haptic phantasm referred to as the “snake impact.” Unlike obvious movement or sensory saltation, the snake impact feels wavy and creepy as if the stomach of a slithering snake is making and breaking contact with the pores and skin. This phantasm is achieved by modulating the amplitudes of vibrotactile pulses …

Drosophila melanogaster mutations suppressible by the suppressor of Hairy-wing are insertions of a 7.3-kilobase mobile element.

Certain spontaneous mutations of Drosophila melanogaster are suppressed by su(Hw), the suppressor of Hairy-wing (3R-54.8). We discover that mutations suppressible by su(Hw) end result from insertions of a mobile ingredient at the affected loci. The ingredient, named gypsy, is roughly 7.three kilobases lengthy and contains 0.5-kilobase direct terminal repeats. It was first recognized in DNA …
