- Visual training improves underwater vision in childrenAnna Gislén
Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Helgonavagen 3, S 223 62 Lund, Sweden
Vision Res 46:3443-50. 2006..The achieved performance can be explained by the combined effect of pupil constriction and strong accommodation...
- Superior underwater vision in a human population of sea gypsiesAnna Gislén
Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, Lund University, Helgonavagen 3, Sweden
Curr Biol 13:833-6. 2003..This extreme reaction-which is routine in Moken children-is completely absent in European children. Because they are completely dependent on the sea, the Moken are very likely to derive great benefit from this strategy...
- On the optical theory of underwater vision in humansAnna Gislén
Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University, Helgonav 3, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
J Opt Soc Am A Opt Image Sci Vis 21:2061-4. 2004..The same theory could be useful when discussing the visual acuity of amphibious animals, as they may use pupil constriction as a means of improving underwater vision...
- Nocturnal vision and landmark orientation in a tropical halictid beeEric J Warrant
Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, University of Lund, Helgonavagen 3, S 22362 Lund, Sweden
Curr Biol 14:1309-18. 2004..The insensitive optics of apposition eyes are not well suited for nocturnal vision. How well then do nocturnal bees and wasps see? What optical and neural adaptations have they evolved for nocturnal vision?..
- The accommodative pupil responses of children and young adults at low and intermediate levels of ambient illuminationAnna Gislén
Lund University, Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Zoology Building, Helgonavagen 3, 22362 Lund, Sweden
Vision Res 48:989-93. 2008..A mature human visual system may furthermore be better tuned to handle dimmer and thus noisier images in the photopic range than the developing visual system of a child...
- Compensation for longitudinal chromatic aberration in the eye of the firefly squid, Watasenia scintillansRonald H H Kröger
Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund Vision Group, Zoology Building, Lund University, Helgonavagen 3, 22362 Lund, Sweden
Vision Res 44:2129-34. 2004..However, it is not a universal solution since compensation for LCA by a banked retina requires that eye size and/or spectral separation between photopigments is small...
