PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of aging on motion detection and perception. METHODS Forty-six subjects, ages 19-92 years, were asked to view a motion stimulus. Infrared oculography was used to objectively evaluate motion detection by documenting the presence of optokinetic nystagmus as the subjects viewed the stimulus.(More)
To better understand the damage to the motion pathway that occurs in senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT), we developed a system to assess separately the conscious perception and unconscious detection of motion in patients with SDAT. Motion perception thresholds were significantly elevated in SDAT (n = 9) compared with controls (n = 12), but motion(More)
OBJECTIVES Endothelial dysfunction precedes atherogenesis and clinical complications in type 2 diabetes. The vascular dysfunction in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats was evaluated at different ages along with the effect of treatment with rosiglitazone (Rosi) on endothelial function and mechanical remodeling. METHODS The Rosi treatment was given to ZDF(More)
PURPOSE Although previous studies have examined the risk of bilaterality of nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), none have compared extensively the extent of visual loss between fellow eyes. The authors examined cases of bilateral NAION to determine the extent of vision loss in the second eye compared with that in the first eye. METHODS(More)
Metabolic syndrome and T2D produce significant health and economic issues. Many available animal models have monogenic leptin pathway mutations that are absent in the human population. Development of the ZDSD rat model was undertaken to produce a model that expresses polygenic obesity and diabetes with an intact leptin pathway. A lean ZDF rat with the(More)

The purpose of this study was to determine if the roles of fathers have changed and if they are more or less involved with the care of their children than were their fathers. A historical role of fatherhood was reviewed beginning with the Colonial period. The impact fathers have on their child's development, maternal gatekeeping, and the effects of both(More)

We have previously demonstrated in a murine model system that psychological stress, applied in the form of physical restraint, suppresses both the activation of splenic-derived, herpes simplex virus (HSV)-specific memory cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLm) to the lytic phenotype and the production of cytokines associated with CTL activation and function. In the(More)
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of brain-based learning within the 2 framework of two elementary schools that administer the Wisconsin Knowledge Concepts Exam. Teachers of these students were previously in-serviced on the implementation of brain-based learning strategies. This study'S primary purpose is to gain an understanding of the(More)
2 The purpose of this study was to determine what the best method is to help the at-risk students in the seventh and eighth grade at the Manawa Middle School. The three programs that are offered for the students are the Student Assistance Program, the Transition Program, and the At-Risk Program. The study found that the Transition Program had the best(More)
