OptoDrum Applications: Limitations of Optomotor Measurements for Laser-induced Damage


In this video, Prof Volker Enzmann highlights an important topic: the relationship between retinal damage and optomotor behavior output is not necessarily linear, and it needs to be established for individual disease models. In the case of laser-induced local retinal damage, the optomotor behavior is only weakly affected, reflecting the surprising robustness of this reflex.

Journal Club: Measuring Visual Acuity and Contrast Sensitivity by Optomotor Reflex in Rodents

STRIA TECHEvents, Journal Club

In vision research, observing the optomotor reflex (OMR) is an important and widely established method for assessing visual acuity and contrast sensitivity in rodents. In this event, we will hear about several applications of OMR measuremnts, ranging from quantification of retinal degeneration to characterization of night vision.
