The astronomical term " main sequence " has been applied to the relationships between duration, peak velocity, and magnitude of human saccades over a thousandfold range of magnitude. Infrared photodiodes aimed at the iris-sclera border and a digital computer were used in experiments to derive the main sequence curves. In the pulse width modulation model,(More)
Human saccadic eye movements have three types of overshoot: dynamic overshoot, lasting 10-30 ms; glissadic overshoot, lasting 30-500 ms; and static overshoot, which is amended-after a delay of about 200 ms-by a subsequent corrective saccade. Glissades are the slow drifting eye movements occasionally seen at the end of saccadic eye movements. Glissades are(More)
Three quite different types of overshoot occur in saccadic eye movements; each has unique characteristics determined by distinct neuronal control patterns. Most saccades have dynamic overshoot; it is more prevalent among, and more prominent in, small saccades. Dynamic overshoot is caused by non-random reversals of the neuronal control signals. It is a(More)
The human horizontal eye movement system produces quick, precise, conjugate eye movements called saccades. These are important in normal vision. For example, reading tasks exclusively utilize saccadic eye movements. The majority of saccades have dynamic overshoot. The amplitude of this overshoot is independent of saccadic amplitude, and is such that it(More)
The relationships between saccadic velocity, duration, and magnitude have been used to prove the normalcy of saccades with intersaccadic intervals of less than 200 ms. Pairs of normal saccades with small intersaccadic intervals will have the second saccade larger or smaller and going in the same or the opposite direction than the first saccade. These normal(More)
The physical, biological, and oceanographic characteristics of seamounts of the New Zealand region of the South Pacific Ocean are poorly known. The aim of this study was to present a synopsis of the physical characteristics of seamounts within the region, and to present a preliminary classification using biologically meaningful variables. Data for up to 16(More)
Human vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) is a homodimeric 170-kDa sialoglycoprotein that is expressed on the surface of endothelial cells and functions as a semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase and as an adhesion molecule. Blockade of VAP-1 has been shown to reduce leukocyte adhesion and transmigration in in vivo and in vitro models, suggesting that VAP-1(More)
G1Δnab is a mutant human IgG1 constant region with a lower ability to interact with FcγR than the natural IgG constant regions. Radiolabelled RBCs and platelets sensitised with specific G1Δnab Abs were cleared more slowly from human circulation than IgG1-sensitised counterparts. However, non-destructive splenic retention of G1Δnab-coated RBCs required(More)
