Rapid quantification of adult and developing mouse spatial vision using a virtual optomotor system.
PURPOSE To develop a simple, rapid method of quantifying the spatial vision of mice. METHODS A rotating cylinder covered with a vertical sine wave grating was calculated and drawn in virtualExpand

Behavioral assessment of visual acuity in mice and rats
We have developed a simple computer-based discrimination task that enables the quick determination of visual acuities in rodents. A grating is displayed randomly on one of two monitors at the wideExpand

Frontal lobe lesions in man cause difficulties in suppressing reflexive glances and in generating goal-directed saccades
SummaryThe frontal eye field (FEF) and superior colliculus (SC) are thought to form two parallel systems for generating saccadic eye movements. The SC is thought classically to mediate reflex-likeExpand

Independent visual threshold measurements in the two eyes of freely moving rats and mice using a virtual-reality optokinetic system
Slow horizontal head and body rotation occurs in mice and rats when the visual field is rotated around them, and these optomotor movements can be produced reliably in a virtual-reality system. If oneExpand

Characterization of mouse cortical spatial vision
Little is known about the spatial vision of mice or of the role the visual cortex plays in mouse visual perception. In order to provide baseline information upon which to evaluate the spatial visionExpand

Enhancement of Vision by Monocular Deprivation in Adult Mice
Plasticity of vision mediated through binocular interactions has been reported in mammals only during a “critical” period in juvenile life, wherein monocular deprivation (MD) causes an enduring lossExpand

Variation in visual acuity within pigmented, and between pigmented and albino rat strains
Many researchers assume that laboratory rats have poor vision, and accordingly, that they need not consider differences in the visual function of rats as a consequence of strain or experience.Expand

Developmental plasticity of mouse visual acuity
Monocular deprivation in mice between postnatal days 19 and 32 has been reported to significantly shift ocular dominance within the binocular region of primary visual cortex; however, it is not knownExpand

Synaptic enhancement in fascia dentata: Cooperativity among coactive afferents
Evidence is presented that long-lasting enhancement of perforant path synapses following high-frequency activity is a cooperative process requiring coactivity of a considerable number of fibers. ThisExpand

Eye-head coordination in cats.
Gaze is the position of the visual axis in space and is the sum of the eye movement relative to the head plus head movement relative to space. In monkeys, a gaze shift is programmed with a singleExpand
