Two rhesus monkeys were trained as operators in a compensatory manual control system similar to systems used in human studies. Training procedures used to shape compensatory tracking behavior included a multiple shock-avoidance technique, the gradual introduction of the system input, and sharpening visual stimulus control of tracking behavior.(More)
BACKGROUND Streptococcus is a common source of bacterial keratoconjunctivitis in adults. Affected patients often report decreased vision, foreign body sensation, redness, and a mucous discharge. Clinical signs reveal diffuse conjunctival injection, a conjunctival papillary response, corneal superficial punctate keratitis, and a mucopurulent discharge with(More)
PURPOSE Atopic dermatitis is a relatively common hereditary dermatologic condition. Ocular sequellae are commonly seen in this disorder and may include involvement of both the anterior and posterior segments of the eye. Clinical symptoms and presentation may vary, as well as visual prognosis. METHOD A 48-year-old black woman came to us with a sudden(More)
BACKGROUND The THC-YAG (Holmium) laser is currently being used to create thermal sclerostomies, an alternate method of intraocular pressure control with poorly regulated glaucoma. A significant advantage of this procedure is the ab externo approach, which utilizes a small fiberoptic laser probe that is advanced subconjunctivally to the limbus. Surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Common clinical characteristics of juvenile onset primary open-angle glaucoma (JPOAG) include increased intraocular pressure, optic nervehead damage, visual-field loss, and a normal-appearing iridocorneal angle by gonioscopy. Histologic analysis of the angle structures may show varying developmental abnormalities that are observed to be less(More)
The human operator in manual control systems is well known from a control theory point of view. The need for highly specialized data in an area which does not permit using human subjects resulted in the study of rhesus monkeys in manual control systems. The performances of monkey and human operators in a simple compensatory control system were similar.
