  • Integration and Segregation

    Traditionally, smooth pursuit research has explored how eye movements are generated to follow small, isolated targets that fit within the fovea. Objects in a natural scene, however, are often larger and extend to peripheral retina.

  • Low Vision Computer Access

    Dr. Deborah Gilden wants to ensure that people who work with low vision students, clients, or patients, or have a visually impaired friend or family member, know that many features built into the Windows OS, MS Office applications, and the Internet, often can serve as tools for low vision computer access.

  • Micro-Perimetry by Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (completed)

    We developed software to make the retinal placement of stimuli during micro-perimetry by a scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) independent of involuntary fixational eye movements.

  • Motion Integration in infants and amblyopia

     

    This project studies the integration of local estimates of motion direction and orientation into global patterns. Integration mechanisms were studied in human infants, normal adults and in adults with amblyopia.

  • Neonatal Jaundice and Vision Loss

    High concentrations of unconjugated bilirubin are neurotoxic and cause brain damage in newborn infants. However, the exact level of bilirubin that may be neurotoxic in a given infant is unknown.

  • Novel Method to Teach Scotoma Awareness

    This project aims to improve visual function in individuals with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD isassociated with central field loss that cannot be corrected optically.
