    In the current study, we examined the role of active experience on sensitivity to multisensory synchrony in six-month-old infants in a musical context. In the first of two experiments, we trained infants to produce a novel multimodal effect (i.e., a drum beat) and assessed the effects of this...

    Lorazepam is a drug that has been widely used for over 30 years. Whereas its therapeutic and amnestic effects are fairly well known, the visuo-perceptual impairments induced by this drug have been studied to a much lesser degree and only little is known about the influence of Iorazepam on the...

    Introduction: The most important aspect of a pediatric eye exam is the quantitative measurement of visual acuity, yet many children in a pediatric practice are nonverbal or preverbal. Methods: The clinician has a number of options for assessing vision in these children, including the central,...

    Background: Vision in people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) is reported to be different from people without ASC, but the neural level at which the differences begin to occur is not yet known. Here we examine two variants of a vernier acuity task to determine if differences are evident in...

    Simultaneous masking refers to the impairment of performance on a visual target by simultaneously presented flankers. Whereas the spatial aspects of simultaneous masking have been studied extensively, the time course of these spatial influences is much less well understood. We here measure...
