METHODS. To induce accelerated growth and myopia, guinea pigs wore a -5 diopter (D) lens over one eye from 4 to 11 days of age. To induce inhibited growth, the lens was removed after 7 days of -5 D lens wear, and the eye allowed to recover from myopia for 3 days. Ocular parameters and Egr-1 mRNA levels were subsequently assessed, and compared to untreated fellow eyes and eyes from untreated littermates. Possible circadian changes in Egr-1 mRNA levels were also determined in 18 additional animals by taking measures every 4 hours during a 24-hour cycle.

On July 26-29, 2010 the 13th International Myopia Conference was held in Tübingen, Germany and included 17 separate symposia, each with 3-5 presentations. Here, in a single paper, the chairs of those Symposia describe the scientific advances noted at the conference and include the full abstracts of the individual myopia papers presented in each symposium along with the authors and their institutions. The 17 Symposia covered 7 topics: Why Study the Mechanisms of Myopia?; Novel Approaches to Risk Factors; Signalling Eye Growth- How Could Basic Biology Be Translated into Clinical Insights?; Where Are Genetic and Proteomic Approaches Leading?; How Does Visual Function Contribute to and Interact with Ametropia?; Does Eye Shape Matter?; Why Ametropia at All?

2001McFadden SA, Shields BN, Rounsley KJ, 'Local accommodation in a lateral eyed bird facilitates seeing simultaneously in two different places in space', Journal of Vision, 1 (2001) [C1]

Many lateral eyed birds are bifoveate or have dual retinal specialisations corresponding with their lateral and frontal viewing modes. For example, the eye design in the pigeon, which is typical of many granivorous birds, incorporates an optic axis for lateral distant viewing and a frontal area in the temporal retina associated with close binocular viewing. In this paper we ask how these two separate visual axis are used to focus on objects, not only at different eccentricities, but also at different absolute distances. Using simultaneous infrared (IR) photoretinoscopy and IR keratometry, we find that the pigeons optical system can indeed simultaneously support differential refractive states on the lateral and frontal axis. Maps of the refractive error (RE) and corneal power in cyclopleged and anaesthetized pigeons, reveal small but antagonistic gradients in different sectors of the visual field. In particular, we find that at rest, the frontal field is relatively myopic and yet the cornea has less power in this sector. We studied how these RE and corneal power maps actively vary during a reaching behaviour. We found that during the saccadic like peck response, the optic axis is not focussed on the grain and has only 30% of the required accommodation power. In contrast, we calculate that the frontal axis does have adequate power to focus on the grain. Furthermore, at the last stationary head fixation position (which occurs at an eye-grain distance of 67mm, SD=3.9mm) before the final descent when the eyes begin to close, accommodation on the frontal axis can be supported wholly by the cornea, which allows dramatic RE changes (-13D, SD=7.7) without unduly effecting the refractive error on the optic axis (-2D, SD=1.7). We propose that the shape of the cornea facilitates this local accommodation mechanism and that this dual visual system can be simultaneously focussed at disparate distances in space.

2001Wallman J, Khan A, Yun R, McFadden S, 'The spatial scale of attention affects adaptation of saccadic gain', Journal of Vision, 1 (2001) [C1]

The amplitude of saccadic eye movements is adjusted by the oculomotor system. If a target is surreptitiously moved during saccades so that the eye lands beyond the target, a gradual decrease in the saccadic gain (saccade-size divided by target-displacement) ensues. What error signals guide this adaptation? We propose that visual attention helps keep track of the target across saccades, so that saccade accuracy can be determined by comparing the location of the fovea with the locus of attention. If attention plays this role, saccadic errors might be more apparent when the size of the attentional field is small than when it is large. We tested this by a conventional saccade adaptation paradigm in which the target stepped 8Ã0 and then stepped back by 30% during each saccade, while the subject did one of two psychophysical tasks demanding either a small or large attentional field. Specifically, the saccade target consisted of a large outer (8.5°) and a small inner (0.8°) ring, each with several breaks, rotating in opposite directions. After each saccade, the number of breaks transiently changed. Subjects reported the number of breaks present during this period in the attended ring. Saccadic gain was assessed both during adaptation and by comparing blocks of saccades before and after 250 adaptation trials using a spot target that disappeared upon saccade onset. After adaptation, saccadic gain had decreased four times as much if subjects attended to the small ring than to the large (small ring: -0.11, SD, 0.031; large ring: -0.027, SD, 0.038, paired t-test, p<0.01). Also, 4 of the 5 subjects had significantly negative gain slopes during the adaptation when attending to the small ring but none did when attending to the large ring. These findings argue that attention plays an important role in the adjustment of saccadic gain and suggest that the spatial scale of attention influences whether saccades are deemed to be accurate or in need of correction.
