Post-chiasmal visual pathway lesions and glaucomatous optic neuropathy cause binocular visual field defects (VFDs) that may critically interfere with quality of life and driving licensure. The aims of this study were (i) to assess the on-road driving performance of patients suffering from binocular visual field loss using a dual-brake vehicle, and (ii) to(More)
The reliable estimation of the pupil position is one the most important prerequisites in gaze-based HMI applications. Despite the rich landscape of image-based methods for pupil extraction, tracking the pupil in real-world images is highly challenging due to variations in the environment (e.g. changing illumination conditions, reflection, etc.), in the eye(More)
PURPOSE Homonymous visual field defects (HVFDs) may critically interfere with quality of life. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of HVFDs on a supermarket search task and to investigate the influence of visual search on task performance. METHODS Ten patients with HVFDs (four with a right-sided [HR] and six with a left-sided defect [HL]), and(More)
Advanced glaucomatous visual field loss may critically interfere with quality of life. The purpose of this study was to (i) assess the impact of binocular glaucomatous visual field loss on a supermarket search task as an example of everyday living activities, (ii) to identify factors influencing the performance, and (iii) to investigate the related(More)
Rapid, nongenomic in vitro effects of aldosterone on intracellular electrolytes, cell volume and the sodium-proton antiporter have been found in human mononuclear leukocytes (HML), as have related membrane receptors. In the present study, binding of 125I-labeled aldosterone to plasma membrane preparations from pig kidneys was studied, since nongenomic in(More)
Over the last years eye tracking became more and more popular. A variety of new eye-tracker models and algorithms for eye tracking data processing emerged. On the one hand this multitude of hard-and software brought many advantages, on the other hand the diversity of devices and measures impedes the comparability and repeatability of eye-tracking studies.(More)
