- And yet it moves: perceptual illusions and neural mechanisms of pursuit compensation during smooth pursuit eye movementsMoran Furman
Department of Neurobiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, USA
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 36:143-51. 2012..We discuss the experimental findings in the context of theories of pursuit compensation, and review some of the open questions in the field...
- Competition driven by retinal waves promotes morphological and functional synaptic development of neurons in the superior colliculusMoran Furman
Department of Neurobiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut
J Neurophysiol 110:1441-54. 2013..These findings demonstrate that retinal wave size plays an instructive role in the synaptic and morphological development of SC neurons, possibly through a competitive process among retinofugal axons. ..

- An instructive role for patterned spontaneous retinal activity in mouse visual map developmentHong Ping Xu
Department of Neurobiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06510, USA
Neuron 70:1115-27. 2011..This suggests that specific patterns of spontaneous activity throughout the developing brain are essential in the emergence of specific and distinct patterns of neuronal connectivity...
