The dependence of the ocular aberrations on gaze has been studied in three eyes using a fast-acquisition, Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor. Although there were some trends in the change of some aberration terms with gaze, the changes of most Zernike coefficients were smaller than their variability at each individual gaze position, due to the combined effects(More)
We consider a model-based approach to clustering, whereby each observation is assumed to have arisen from an underlying mixture of a nite number of distributions. The number of components in this mixture model corresponds to the number of clusters to be imposed on the data. A common assumption is to take the component distributions to be multivariate normal(More)
Demographic processes exert different degrees of control as individuals grow, and in species that span several habitats and spatial scales, this can influence our ability to predict their population at a particular life-history stage given the previous life stage. In particular, when keystone species are involved, this relative coupling between demographic(More)
To study optic canal dimensions and symmetry during cranial development, 146 silicon rubber left- and right-side models of the optic canal were cast from 51 dry skulls and 22 individual bones. The sample was divided in three age groups: fetuses (including newborns), children and adults with ages ranging from seven months of fetal life to 68-year-old. A(More)
The purpose of this work is to analyze the contribution of eye movements to the variability of the Zernike coefficients as determined with a Hartmann-Shack aberrometer. In order to isolate this effect we considered static aberrations tied to the eye pupil. We used several eye movements of different magnitude, both synthetic and corresponding to actual(More)
