      Lorentz, Holly Irene (University of Waterloo, 2012-01-12)
      Purpose: To examine the variables that influence lipid deposition on conventional and silicone hydrogel contact lens materials and to build a physiologically relevant in vitro model of lipid deposition on contact lenses. ...
    • Monocular Adaptation of Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) 

      Sehizadeh, Mina (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      Purpose: This study asks whether active horizontal angular Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) gain is capable of monocular adaptation after 4 hours of wearing 10 dioptres (D) of induced anisometropia in healthy human adults. ...
    • Morphometric Characterization of Limbal Vasculature using Ultra-high Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography 

      Alabi, Emmanuel (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-27)
      Purpose: The aim of the present study was to compare and investigate morphometric characteristics of limbal vasculature within the superior and inferior limbal regions using ultra-high resolution optical coherence ...
    • Motion Processing of Reverse Phi 

      Kuppuswamy Parthasarathy, Mohana (University of Waterloo, 2019-11-18)
      Introduction: When the contrast of the successive images is reversed for a target in an apparent motion stimulus, the perceived direction is reversed, i.e., opposite of phi motion, which is an integration of the sequential ...
    • MRI guided brain stimulation without the use of a neuro-navigation system. 

      Vaghefi, Ehsan; Cai, Peng; Fang, Fang; Byblow, Winston D.; Stinear, Cathy M.; Thompson, Benjamin (Hindawi Publishing, 2015-01-01)
      A key issue in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is the accurate localization of scalp positions that correspond to targeted cortical areas. The current gold standard is to combine structural and functional ...
    • Multisensory attention training for treatment of tinnitus 

      Spiegel, Daniel P.; Linford, T.; Thompson, Benjamin; Petoe, Matt A.; Kobayashi, K.; Stinear, Cathy M.; Searchfield, Grant D. (Springer Nature, 2015-05-28)
      Tinnitus is the conscious perception of sound with no physical sound source. Some models of tinnitus pathophysiology suggest that networks associated with attention, memory, distress and multisensory experience are involved ...
    • Near addition lenses as a tool to investigate vergence adaptation in myopic children 

      Sreenivasan, Vidhyapriya (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-12)
      Accommodation and vergence are two interacting ocular motor systems that function to maintain clear and single vision across a wide range of distances. Sustained fixation results in the adaptation of these ocular motor ...
