    • A Probabilistic Approach to Receptive Field Mapping in the Frontal Eye Fields. 

      Mayo, J Patrick; Morrison, Robert M; Smith, Matthew A (Frontiers in systems neuroscience, 2016-01)
      Studies of the neuronal mechanisms of perisaccadic vision often lack the resolution needed to determine important changes in receptive field (RF) structure. Such limited analytical power can lead to inaccurate descriptions ...
    • Circuits for presaccadic visual remapping. 

      Rao, HM; Mayo, JP; Sommer, MA (J Neurophysiol, 2016-12-01)
      Saccadic eye movements rapidly displace the image of the world that is projected onto the retinas. In anticipation of each saccade, many neurons in the visual system shift their receptive fields. This presaccadic change ...
    • Clearly Camouflaged Crustaceans: The Physical Basis of Transparency in Hyperiid Amphipods and Anemone Shrimp 

      Bagge, Laura Elizabeth (2017)
      This dissertation research focused on the ways in which clear crustaceans with complex bodies (i.e. with hard cuticles, thick muscles, and other internal organs) maintain transparency across their entire body volume. I ...
    • Distribution of visual and saccade related information in the monkey inferior colliculus. 

      Bulkin, David A; Groh, Jennifer M (Frontiers in neural circuits, 2012-01)
      The inferior colliculus (IC) is an essential stop early in the ascending auditory pathway. Though normally thought of as a predominantly auditory structure, recent work has uncovered a variety of non-auditory influences ...
    • Dynamics of visual receptive fields in the macaque frontal eye field. 

      Mayo, J Patrick; DiTomasso, Amie R; Sommer, Marc A; Smith, Matthew A (J Neurophysiol, 2015-12)
      Neuronal receptive fields (RFs) provide the foundation for understanding systems-level sensory processing. In early visual areas, investigators have mapped RFs in detail using stochastic stimuli and sophisticated analytical ...
    • Sensorimotor Learning in a Computerized Athletic Training Battery. 

      Krasich, Kristina; Ramger, Ben; Holton, Laura; Wang, Lingling; Mitroff, Stephen R; Gregory Appelbaum, L (J Mot Behav, 2016-09)
      Sensorimotor abilities are crucial for performance in athletic, military, and other occupational activities, and there is great interest in understanding learning in these skills. Here, behavioral performance was measured ...
    • Temporal resolution of single photon responses in primate rod photoreceptors and limits imposed by cellular noise. 

      Field, Greg D; Uzzell, Valerie; Chichilnisky, EJ; Rieke, Fred (Journal of neurophysiology, 2018-11-28)
      Sensory receptor noise corrupts sensory signals, contributing to imperfect perception and dictating central processing strategies. For example, noise in rod phototransduction limits our ability to detect light and minimizing ...
    • The Role of Vision in Sexual Signaling in the Blue Crab 

      Baldwin Fergus, Jamie Lynn (2012)
      The dissertation work discussed here focuses on the behavioral and physiological aspects of visual sexual signaling in the blue crab, <italic>Callinectes sapidus</italic>. The blue crab has a pair of apposition compound ...
    • Visual and oculomotor abilities predict professional baseball batting performance 

      Liu, S; Edmunds, FR; Burris, K; Appelbaum, LG (International Journal of Performance Analysis in Sport, 2020-07-03)
      © 2020, © 2020 Cardiff Metropolitan University. Scientists and practitioners have long debated about the specific visual skills needed to excel at hitting a pitched baseball. To advance this debate, we evaluated the relationship ...
