- Independent visual threshold measurements in the two eyes of freely moving rats and mice using a virtual-reality optokinetic systemR M Douglas
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Vis Neurosci 22:677-84. 2005..These data show that head-tracking in a virtual optokinetic drum is driven by subcortical, lower frequency, and contralateral pathways...
- Perception of visual motion coherence by rats and miceR M Douglas
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of British Columbia, 2550 Willow Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Vision Res 46:2842-7. 2006..These data indicate that the rodent and primate visual systems are similar in that both have local motion detectors and a system for extracting global motion from a noisy signal...
- Serotonin facilitates synaptic plasticity in kitten visual cortex: an in vitro studyL Kojic
Department of Ophthalmology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
Brain Res Dev Brain Res 101:299-304. 1997....
- Columnar distribution of serotonin-dependent plasticity within kitten striate cortexL Kojic
Brain Research Centre and Department of Ophthalmology, University of British Columbia, 2550 Willow Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada V5Z 3N9
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 97:1841-4. 2000..Instead, in these zones, 5-HT application increases the probability of long-term depression. These location-specific effects of 5-HT may promote the formation of compartment-specific cortical responses...

Brain Research Centre, University of British Columbia and Vancouver Hospital and Health Sciences Centre, 2550 Willow Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada V5Z 3N9
Brain Res Dev Brain Res 126:157-62. 2001..This plasticity may underly a control system gating the experience-dependent changes of synaptic organization within developing visual cortex...
- Characterization of mouse cortical spatial visionG T Prusky
Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience, The University of Lethbridge, 4401 University Drive, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada T1K 3M4
Vision Res 44:3411-8. 2004..The mouse visual system exhibits fundamental mammalian characteristics, including the feature that striate cortex is involved in processing visual information with the highest sensitivity and spatial frequency...
- Visual memory task for rats reveals an essential role for hippocampus and perirhinal cortexG T Prusky
Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience, University of Lethbridge, 4401 University Drive, Lethbridge, AB, Canada T1K 3M4
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:5064-8. 2004..These data demonstrate that rats have a visual recognition memory system fundamentally similar to primates that depends on the function of the hippocampus...
