    The City College of the City University of New York, New York, NY 10031, USA
    Vision Res 42:2651-68. 2002
    ..It may therefore be necessary to quantify more complex temporal patterns of nearwork over the day in order to measure the impact of nearwork on eye growth...
  2. pmc Russian blues reveal effects of language on color discrimination
    Jonathan Winawer
    Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139 4307, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:7780-5. 2007
    ..These results demonstrate that (i) categories in language affect performance on simple perceptual color tasks and (ii) the effect of language is online (and can be disrupted by verbal interference)...
  3. ncbi request reprint Ocular compensation for alternating myopic and hyperopic defocus
    Jonathan Winawer
    Department of Biology, City College, City University of New York, New York, NY 10031, USA
    Vision Res 45:1667-77. 2005
    ..If similar temporal integration effects apply to humans, they may help explain why brief accommodation events may not influence lens-compensation and why a child's total reading time may be a poor predictor of myopic progression...

    Xiaoying Zhu
    Department of Biology, City College, City University of New York CUNY, New York, New York 10031, USA

    Tae Woo Park
    Department of Biology, City College, City University of New York, New York, NY 10031, USA
    Vision Res 43:1519-31. 2003
    ..These findings argue both that the eye can discern the sign of the blur and that choroidal and ocular-elongation components of the refractive compensation do not respond identically to visual inputs...

    University of New South Wales, School of Psychology, Sydney, New South Wales 2052, Australia
    Nature 434:79-83. 2005

    College of Optometry, University of Houston, Houston, Texas, USA
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 48:957-62. 2007

    Jonathan Winawer
    Stanford University, Psychology Department, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Psychol Sci 19:276-83. 2008
    ..The transfer of adaptation from motion depicted in photographs to real motion demonstrates that the perception of implied motion activates direction-selective circuits that are also involved in processing real motion...
