A "conscious" process of self-control whereby a person is aware of having certain desires or wishes but does not reveal them because he or she believes they are in some way inappropriate. (Contrasts with "repression".)
Where wildland fires have been stopped by human methods, fire ecologists consider natural fires to have been suppressed in that landscape. Fire suppression can sometimes lead to an extremely hazardous situation as downed and dead wood accumulate and increase the possibility of a disastrous, unnaturally hot fire.
Used to ignore categories that fall into a low range. Zero Suppression removes rows or columns containing all zeros that can occur when drilling down from governmentwide data to very detailed data. 80/20 Suppression removes rows or columns whose absolute values do not contribute to the top 80% of results. It then summarizes the removed rows or columns into a single row or column called "Other". Note: The Zero and 80/20 suppression button icons remain enabled until you click them again to disable them.
the suspension by the brain of the visual information that is coming in through one eye; the eye is healthy and receives information, but brain ignores the information in order to compensate for misaligned eyes and resulting misaligned images or other problems with stereoscopic vision.
Cortical inhibition or the cancellation by the brain of the signals from an eye to avoid confusions and discomforts arising from problems of binocularity. It is a condition frequently found in those individuals having excessive visual stress, but can usually be reduced or eliminated through proper vision care and lens therapy. It is a common deterrent to academic progress. This symptom requires a clinical evaluation.
Suppression of an eye is an adaptation by the patient to eliminate the symptoms of disorders of binocular vision such strabismus, convergence insufficiency and aniseikonia. This adaptation occurs in the brain, eliminating double vision by temproarily ignoring the images of one of the eyes.
A mechanism for producing a specific state of immunologic unresponsiveness by the induction of suppressor T cells. This type of unresponsiveness is passively transferable by suppressor T cells or their soluble products.
