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)
Coral reefs are one of the most threatened marine ecosystems and are under significant sources of stress in many locations (e.g., Knowlton 2001; Hoegh-Guldberg et al. 2007). These stresses include degradation of water quality from coastal dredging, construction, and runoff; over-harvesting of corals and associated organisms; and mechanical damage from(More)
A seven-month-old, neutered male Catahoula leopard dog cross was presented for recurrent urethral obstruction and intermittent hematuria. After exploratory laparotomy and ventral cystotomy, unilateral idiopathic renal hematuria was diagnosed based on gross observation of hematuria from the left ureteral catheter. The hematuria resolved after nephrectomy of(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)
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)
The pathologic basis for presbyopia is classically attributed to lenticular sclerosis or atrophy of the ciliary muscle, but recent work suggests that thickening and loss of elasticity of the anterior lens capsule play an important role. As no practical means for attenuating or reversing the aging process of lens protein has been identified, alteration of(More)
