The majority of the funds will go towards the design, purchase, and fabrication of data collection equipment. The experiment to be performed will require monitoring of visual spectrum shifts over a period of 6 months. The four of us who will be performing the experiment live in different states and have other obligations that make it unfeasible to remain at one location for the duration of the experiment. As a result, we have trimmed the design of our testing equipment to be as inexpensive as possible, and will assemble one for each subject.
The second part of the funding goes towards the Vitamin A2 supplement. This is not something one can purchase from a standard store and we are exploring extracting it from the livers of freshwater fish, or purchasing a small amount from a reliable chemical supplier.
