Abstract:There is a strong linear correlation between amplitude and peak velocity of constriction for the pupil light reflex in normal subjects. This relationship is unaffected by the stimulus intensity, size of the pupil, or age of the subject. Clinicians and researchers must keep this interdependence in mind when drawing inferences from the observed (or measured) speed of the pupillary constriction to light.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
