51 Olson, Randall J.; Coldwell, Karin D.; Compton, Bruce J.; Giddings, John C.Sedimentation field-flow fractionation: a method for studying particulates in cataractous lensIt is shown that the technique of sedimentation field-flow fractionation (sedimentation [sed] FFF) can be used to determine the particle content and particle size distribution of normal and cataractous lenses. A 31-year-old normal human lens, for example, showed a particle content of 1.5% by weight ...Fractionation; Cataractous Lens; Particulates1984
52 Angelucci, AlessandraRole for nitric oxide in the development of the ferret retinogeniculate projectionThe ferret retinogeniculate projection segregates into eye-specific layers during the first postnatal week and into ON/OFF sublaminae, which receive inputs from either on-center or off-center retinal ganglion cells, during the third and fourth postnatal weeks. The restriction of retinogeniculate axo...Enzyme Inhibitors; Visual Pathways; Wheat Germ Agglutinin-Horseradish Peroxidase Conjugate1996
53 Jones, Bryan W.; Jones, Christopher R.; Czajkowski, LauraFamilial advanced sleep-phase syndrome: a short-period circadian rhythmvariant in humansBiological circadian clocks oscillate with an approximately 24-hour period, are ubiquitous, and presumably confer a selective advantage by anticipating the transitions between day and night. The circadian rhythms of sleep, melatonin secretion and body core temperature are thought to be generated by ...Activity Cycles; Matched-Pair Analysis; Polysomnography1999

57 Angelucci, AlessandraExperimentally induced retinal projections to the ferret auditory thalamus: development of clustered eye-specific patterns in a novel targetWe have examined the relative role of afferents and targets in pattern formation using a novel preparation, in which retinal projections in ferrets are induced to innervate the medial geniculate nucleus (MGN). We find that retinal projections to the MGN are arranged in scattered clusters. Clusters a...Retina; Ferrets1997
58 Baehr, WolfgangTissue-specific expression in transgenic mice directed by the 5'-flanking sequences of the human gene encoding interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding proteinInterphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein (IRBP) is an extracellular protein that has been suggested to participate in the visual process as a carrier for visual retinoids.

65 Normann, Richard A.; Shoham, ShyCoding of position by simultaneously recorded sensory neurones in the cat dorsal root ganglionMuscle, cutaneous and joint afferents continuously signal information about the position and movement of individual joints. How does the nervous system extract more global information, for example about the position of the foot in space? To study this question we used microelectrode arrays to record...Cats; Sensory Neurones; Movement; Limb Position2004
66 Baehr, WolfgangNoninvasive two-photon imaging reveals retinyl ester storage structures in the eyeVisual sensation in vertebrates is triggered when light strikes retinal photoreceptor cells causing photoisomerization of the rhodopsin chromophore 11-cis-retinal to all-trans-retinal.
