Prepulse inhibition

Prepulse inhibition: preceding stimulus attenuates the startle response.
Prepulse Inhibition (PPI) is a neurological phenomenon in which a weaker prestimulus (prepulse) inhibits the reaction of an organism to a subsequent strong startling stimulus (pulse). The stimuli are usually acoustic, but tactile stimuli (e.g. via air puffs onto the skin) and light stimuli are also used.

The Phonograph cylinder

Edison Gold Moulded Cylinder made from black wax, ca. 1904. The term 'gold' was 
a reference to the metal plated onto the master wax cylinder as the 
first part in the process of manufacturing the mould.

Phonograph cylinders were the earliest commercial medium for recording and reproducing sound. Commonly known simply as "records" in their era of greatest popularity (c. 1888–1915), these cylinder shaped objects had an audio recording engraved on the outside surface which could be reproduced when the cylinder was played on a mechanical phonograph.

Navigating through a photo album is done simply by swiping left or right.
