  Fovea - Psychology Wiki - A Wikia wiki
The fovea, a part of the eye, is a spot located in the center of the macula.
The fovea is responsible for sharp central vision, which is necessary in humans for reading, watching television or movies, driving, and any activity where visual detail is of primary importance.
Compared to the rest of the retina, the cones in the foveal pit are smaller and more densely packed (in a hexagonal pattern), and they are not obscured by a layer of nerve cells or blood vessels; all of this together accounts for the sharp vision associated with them.

 Fovea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fovea, also known as the fovea centralis, is a part of the eye, located in the center of the macula region of the retina.
The fovea is surrounded by the parafovea belt, and the perifovea outer region:
Due to the lack of a vitreal blood supply, the fovea must receive its oxygen from the vessels in the choroid, which is across the retinal pigment epithelium and Bruch's membrane.

Disorders affecting the fovea are responsible for the majority of cases of untreated blindness in the developed world, yet are poorly understood at the molecular level.
Disorders of the fovea, and its immediate surrounding area, the macula, are responsible for the majority of cases of untreatable blindness in the developed world, affecting 1 in 25 people over the age of 65 (17).

 Webvision: Simple Anatomy of the Retina
A circular field of approximately 6 mm around the fovea is considered the central retina while beyond this is peripheral retina stretching to the ora serrata, 21 mm from the center of the optic disc.
The center of the fovea is known as the foveal pit (Polyak, 1941) and is a highly specialized region of the retina different again from central and peripheral retina we have considered so far.
As the fovea is the most essential part of the retina for human vision, protective mechanisms for avoiding bright light and especially ultraviolet irradiation damage are essential.

 Ocular Pathology Study Guide: Macula and Fovea
The fovea is a depression in the center of the macula that measures about 1.5 mm in diameter.
The center of the fovea (foveola) resides usually about 4.0 mm temporal and 0.8 mm inferior to the optic nerve head.
There are no ganglion cells in the fovea but only glial cells and Muller cells in the area of the fovea referred to as the foveola which measures about 350 microns in diameter.

The photographers' collective, FOVEA, is a group of 20 Montreal artists/photographers who operate jointly a collective workspace, darkroom and exhibition room.
Founded in 1998 as a non-profit organization, Fovea had evolved from the Atelier VOX, a collective created in 1985 by the founding members of Vox Populi and having produced, over the years, various photographic exhibits in Montreal and abroad.
Fovea's continuing mission to exhibit photography in public spaces began in 1995 with a series of photographic street posters shown in Montreal (Mois de la Photo 1995 and 1997) and in Scotland (Fotofeis 1997).

 Fragments From Floyd: Fovea Centralis
This region of the retina is called the macula lutea, the pit, the fovea centralis, and this tiny depression keeps us from having to process the entire field of vision in focus and precision all the time.
The fovea centralis came to mind in the wee hours last night, because I was wishing I had a one for my poor brain even with my eyes closed, as not one thing came to mind, but all things at once.
It serves as a fovea centralis for the aesthetic eye, hiding things in the periphery and depth of view, calling into focus a single rock or tree or barn while the edges go soft and cloudy.

 Rethinking the Process of Vision » Fovea   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The assertion that the central fovea with it’s characteristic cone/cone appositions is solely sensitive to long wavelengths seems to be in agreement with Wald’s classical finding (referenced) that the fovea is “blue blind”, i.e., insensitive to short wavelengths.
I propose that this is the function of the all-cone central fovea of the retina - to discern the basic “outline sketch” or at most the “general outline” of the visual image that we perceive.
The fovea consists of a matrix of approximately 15,000 x 15,000 receptor elements sensitive to intensity and phase which should be sufficient for this task.

 Brainwashed - Fovea Hex, "Bloom"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Fovea Hex sees the likes of Brain and Roger Eno team up with Cloadagh Simonds (most famous for her work with Thin Lizzy and Mike Oldfield) and Carter Burwell (famous for soundtracking pretty much all of the Coen brothers’ works) to make some beautiful songs that touch on traditional, ambient and experimental music.
I found that the other vocalists and musicians were all sympathetic to this style (half of the members of Fovea Hex have a solid traditional Irish music background) which means that the songs don’t end up sounding like a hodgepodge of new age commercial rubbish like the demon queen Enya.
Fovea Hex is more reminiscent of Coil’s work in their Solstice and Equinox series.

 The Retina of the Human Eye
In the middle of the retina is a small dimple called the fovea or fovea centralis.
Since the fovea provides the sharpest and most detailed information, the eyeball is continuously moving, so that light from the object of primary interest falls on this region.
By contrast, cones in the fovea are individually connected to nerve fibers.

Cone density decreases rapidly outside the fovea and then falls to a fairly even density in the peripheral retina.
There are no "S" cones in the center of the fovea, the fovea centralis, where visual acuity is highest.
Rods are most dense in the periphery of the retina; cones are most dense in the fovea.

Xing and Heeger (2000) have demonstrated that surround suppression became markedly stronger as the center-surround stimulus was moved toward the periphery.
Moreover, the different center-surround interactions in the fovea and periphery cannot be accounted for by cortical magnification.
This report presented further evidence that center-surround interactions in the fovea and periphery are incommensurable.

 Macular Translocation
The fovea is a very small zone at the center of the macula, in which the color-sensing cones of the retina are concentrated.
leaky new blood vessels forming in the choroid tissue behind the fovea, laser photocoagulation is not an appropriate treatment because the overlying foveal tissue is destroyed by the energetic laser used in photocoagulation.
The surgeon's objective is to move (translocate) the fovea relative to the RPE, so that the presumptively functional cones and rods of the fovea are repositioned in front of presumptively functional RPE just outside the original fovea position.

 fovea
La fovea è una piccola porzione della retina, in cui è massima l'acuità visiva; ha un diametro inferiore al mezzo millimetro, corrispondente ad un angolo visivo di solo un grado.
Anche a livello della corteccia visiva, l’area destinata a ricevere l’informazione dalla fovea, è molto più rappresentata.
Ci si può rendere conto dei ristretti limiti della fovea, fissando l'attenzione sulle lettere centrali della figura a destra: se si tiene gli occhi fissi su di esse, si vedrà come anche le lettere periferiche, che l'occhio vede attraverso la zona circostante la fovea, risultano appena visibili.
