PURPOSE Recently in glaucoma, different mapping schemes to combine structural and functional information within the macula have been proposed. This paper aims to investigate whether the changes in foveal shape parameters are important in the mapping between structure and function within the macular region. METHODS Twenty younger adults (aged 24- to(More)
PURPOSE In the macula, retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) are displaced from their receptive fields. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to customize displacements for individual eyes by taking into account macular shape parameters, and determined the likely effect of individual anatomical differences on structure-function mapping in the central visual(More)
S-curves analysis allows to study evolution and trends in specific technological fields; its theoretical background establishes that in order to achieve the best results the analysis must be done using an independent variable that shows the effort invested in R&D activities and a dependent variable that shows the cumulative performance in that field.(More)
The development of a general framework for robust reliability-based design of base-isolated structural systems under uncertain conditions is presented. The uncertainties about the structural parameters as well as the variability of future excitations are characterized in a probabilistic manner. Isolation elements composed of nonlinear lead rubber bearings(More)
