Graduate Research Seminar III: Special Topics–Eye Growth, Emmetropization, Dev. of Myopia (GRS97022)
Special Topics: Eye Growth, Emmetropization, and the Development of Myopia
This seminar surveys and critiques the recent experimental and epidemiological research on the control of eye growth and the development of refractive state. Topics include the visual regulation of eye growth, emmetropization and refractive error development, animal models of myopia, the biochemistry and biomechanics of eye growth, and the genetics of eye growth and refractive error development. Occasionally, other special topics in vision science may be selected.
