We conducted three experiments in order to examine the influence of gaze behavior and fixation on audiovisual speech perception in a task that required subjects to report the speech sound they perceived during the presentation of congruent and incongruent (McGurk) audiovisual stimuli. Experiment 1 showed that the subjects' natural gaze behavior rarely(More)
Joubert syndrome is characterized by episodic hyperpnea and apnea, developmental delay, hypotonia, truncal ataxia, ophthalmologic abnormalities, and vermian dysgenesis. We studied 15 patients with the diagnosis of Joubert syndrome to (1) more fully define the syndrome's clinical features, and (2) correlate the clinical features with magnetic resonance(More)
PURPOSE Current helmet testing standards do not address the rotational components of an impact to the head. We describe a new testing paradigm used to measure the rotational acceleration of a headform and a protective helmet following an impact to the head in the horizontal plane. This impact simulation allows for the testing of currently available head(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the sensitivity of the multifocal electroretinogram (mf-ERG) at measuring changes in retinal electrical activity in response to Avastin (bevacizumab) treatment for age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). METHODS Nine subjects with exudative ARMD, not previously treated with bevacizumab in the investigated eye, underwent pretreatment(More)
Our objective was to describe and expand the clinical spectrum of a rarely detected, previously reported photoreceptor disorder restricted to the foveal cones. Three patients with bilaterally decreased acuity and hemeralopia were examined to exclude a structural, vascular, inflammatory, or degenerative process. Each patient underwent a full neuroophthalmic(More)
BACKGROUND To determine if fine-motor eye exercises can be used for treatment of unilateral, idiopathic cranial nerve VII paresis to improve rate of recovery. METHODS In this prospective, randomized controlled trial, eligible patients were randomized to perform fine-motor eye exercises (n=18) or to do no exercise (n=9) for a period of four weeks.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the influence of environmental conditions on pattern visual evoked potential (VEP) recordings. METHODS Fourteen subjects with no known ocular pathology were recruited for the study. In an attempt to optimize the recording conditions, VEP recordings were performed in both the seated and recumbent positions. Comparisons were made(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the tolerability and adverse events reported in the Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Treatment Trial (IIHTT). METHODS Randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Trial participants (n = 165) with mild visual loss concurrently receiving low-sodium weight-reduction diet plus the maximally tolerated dosage of(More)
A 14-year-old girl presented with a history of left-sided headache and acute bilateral blurred vision. She had a remote history of oral tetracycline use for the treatment of acne vulgaris, which had been discontinued for 1 month. The patient was diagnosed with drug-induced intracranial hypertension (IH) and treated with oral acetazolamide with subsequent(More)
