Perimetric profiles and cortical representation

Wood, Joanne M., Wild, John M., Drasdo, Neville, & Crews, S. James (1986) Perimetric profiles and cortical representation. Ophthalmic Research, 18(5), pp. 301-308.


The nature of the interaction between spatial summation and M-scaling was investigated by means of the Octopus automated perimeter. It was found that M-scaling of spatial stimulus parameters, alone, did not result in the expected isosensitivity profile. A clinically flat profile was, however, obtained within the central 30 degrees along the horizontal meridian using a large uniform size target (size 3; projected diameter 0.431 degrees). The eccentricities at which presentation of the standard Goldmann targets would result in an isosensitivity profile across the full extent of the visual field were calculated to further illustrate the over-compensation inherent in the current M-scaling equations.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
