Sektion für Neurobiologie des Auges

Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen

Our goal is to uncover the biological mechanisms of myopia development and to develop strategies to inhibit its progression. Development of new optical techniques to measure eye growth and optical properties of eyes in animal models for myopia and in humans.
*measurement of refractive state and accommodation with high temporal resolution, binocularly and including pupillography and gaze tracking: infrared photoretinoscopy
*testing of visual function in transgenic and wildtype mice: automated optomotor experiments and pupillography
*recording from retinal ganglion cells in vitro: MEA
* measurements of contrast adaptation due to defocus: psychophysical measurement of supra-threshold contrast sensitivity
*optical measurements in eyes: new phacometry and fast automated peripheral photorefraction
*measurement of ocular dimensions: low coherence interferometry and A-scan ultrasonography
