We have determined the transverse chromatic aberration of the human eye by measuring the apparent offset of a two-color vernier viewed foveally through a displaced, pinhole aperture. For the same subjects, we also determined the longitudinal chromatic aberration for foveal viewing by the method of best focus. In both cases, the results were closely(More)
Psychometric performance was measured for contrast detection and spatial resolution tasks in foveal and peripheral vision. Objective evidence was obtained for a quantitative difference between resolution acuity and detection acuity in the peripheral field. These two types of spatial acuity differed by up to an order of magnitude (3 vs 30 c/deg at 30 deg(More)
INTRODUCTION Military aircrew and other operational personnel frequently perform their duties at altitudes posing a significant hypoxia risk, often with limited access to supplemental oxygen. Despite the significant risk hypoxia poses, there are few studies relating it to primary flight performance, which is the purpose of the present study. METHODS(More)
Memory deficits and other cognitive symptoms frequently associated with mTBI are commonly thought to resolve within 7-10 days. This generalization is based principally on observations made in individuals who are in the unstressed environmental conditions typical of a clinic and so does not consider the impact of physiologic, environmental, or psychological(More)
INTRODUCTION Pilots typically tilt their heads when executing coordinated banking turns, a phenomenon commonly attributed to the putative opto-kinetic cervical reflex (OKCR). The OKCR is usually described as a reflex, primarily driven by stimuli in the visual periphery, and is important to a pilot's spatial orientation by providing a relatively stabilized(More)
Jet pilots (JP) (N = 44), helicopter pilots (HP) (N = 29), and college students (CS) (N = 41) were tested with a battery of vision tests designed to assess vision skills important for success as a naval aviator. Tests included measures of reaction time, high-contrast acuity, low-contrast acuity, spot detection, far-to-near gaze shift, near-to-far gaze(More)
