In news:

Here we analyze visual signaling in populations of ganglion cells recorded from the isolated salamander retina .
Scientists have developed a dual technique that allows the simultaneous visualization of protein modifications and downstream mRNA production that occur as a result of cell signaling at the single-cell level.
Safety Integrity Level (SIL) audible and visual signaling devices are designed to conform to SIL 1 and SIL 2 safety requirements.
The low-profile SSPKWLP Series from Gentex Corporation of Zeeland, Michigan, is a line of speaker /strobes that offers dependable evacuation signaling and visual alarms.
They also include easyID local visual indication of surge module status and optional remote contact signaling integration with monitoring systems.
The system displays both percent of Total Polar Material and temperature on a bright backlit display as well as signals an audible and visual alarm when thresholds are exceeded.

In science:

Personal Memex can use various methods such as vibrations, haptic or tactile outputs, electronic signals, audio playback, and visual displays.
Human Information Processing with the Personal Memex
Note that, due to the high level of the noise (small amplitude of the signal with respect to the noise variance), it is difficult to detect visually the changes in the criterion behavior.
Estimation of the distribution of random shifts deformation
First developed by Kohonen (1995), the technique has subsequently found application to automatic speech recognition, analysis of electrical signals from the brain, data visualization and meteorology.
