Relation between behavior and eye-refraction in the rabbit

Retinal image quality in the rodent eye

Using the measurements of the optics and the published behavioral and electrophysiological contrast sensitivity functions of rats, the CSF that the rat would have if it had perfect rather than poor optics is calculated.

On the use of schematic eye models to estimate retinal image quality.

The optical performance of the eyes of nine vertebrate species was evaluated using optical system design techniques and schematic eye models to determine the difference of lateral and axial resolution between a small and a large eye for imaging photoreceptors in vivo.

Retinoscopy and Eye Size

Retinoscopy was performed on animals with different sized eyes, all of whom appeared hypermetropic. The data were well fitted by an equation of the form y = kx-2 where y is refractive error in

Model of refractive-index distribution in the rabbit crystalline lens.

It was found that such a distribution of refractive indices in the crystalline lens plays a very important role in decreasing the spherical aberration and increasing the refractive power.

Receptive fields, binocular interaction and functional architecture in the cat's visual cortex

This method is used to examine receptive fields of a more complex type and to make additional observations on binocular interaction and this approach is necessary in order to understand the behaviour of individual cells, but it fails to deal with the problem of the relationship of one cell to its neighbours.

CHANGES IN THE DEPTH OF THE ANTERIOR CHAMBER AND IN THE RADIUS OF CURVATURE OF THE FRONT SURFACE OF THE LENS DURING GROWTH OBSERVATIONS ON THE RABBIT*

In the present study an account is given of the changes observed in the depth of the anterior chamber and in the curvature of the front surface of the lens in rabbits followed up from 7 to 80 weeks of age.

Changes in the Refractive Power of the Cornea during Growth *

In the rabbit, as in man, there is relatively little change in refraction of the eye during growth-and this in spite of the fact that over the 6 months of observation the refractions of the cornea declined from a value of over 60 D. to well below 50 D., and is seen.
