    Stroke outcome is highly variable. Experiments in this thesis test the hypothesis that experience prior to a stroke is an important variable in the manifestation of stroke. Optokinetic tracking was used to evaluate the ...
  • McGill, Trevor; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2008)
    The established model used for evaluating potential therapies for retinal disease has significant limitations. A new model is proposed to account for these limitations: the visual adaptation model. The visual adaptation ...
  • Silver, Byron D.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2005)
    The premise that mature visual function depends upon the nature of visual experience during development is based primarily on experiments showing that visual deprivation during a 'critical' period early in life causes ...
