Experience in judging intent to harm modulates parahippocampal activity: An fMRI study with experienced CCTV operators (2014)
Journal Article
Petrini, K., McAleer, P., Neary, C., Gillard, J., & Pollick, F. E. (2014). Experience in judging intent to harm modulates parahippocampal activity: An fMRI study with experienced CCTV operators. Cortex, 57, 74-91. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cortex.2014.02.026

Does visual experience in judging intent to harm change our brain responses? And if it does, what are the mechanisms affected? We addressed these questions by studying the abilities of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) operators, who must identify the...

Speed and accuracy of head- and eye-based aiming systems at high vertical acceleration (2004)
Journal Article
Ineson, J., Durnell, L., Ebbage, J. L., Jarrett, D. N., Neary, C., & Reed, M. A. (2004). Speed and accuracy of head- and eye-based aiming systems at high vertical acceleration. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, 75(5), 420-428

BACKGROUND The benefits of using a head tracker in a fast jet to aim weapons and control sensor direction have been amply demonstrated, but head direction is difficult to control at high G. An experiment was conducted to assess whether aiming usin... Read More about Speed and accuracy of head- and eye-based aiming systems at high vertical acceleration.

The effect of 3D virtual images on eye movement control (1996)
Journal Article
Neary, C. (1996). The effect of 3D virtual images on eye movement control. Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 36, 784

Purpose. To examine oculomotor responses to targets presented within a non-immersive stereoscopic (3D) display where accommodation and vergence cues to depth conflict. Methods. A liquid crystal frame sequential shuttering system was used to create th... Read More about The effect of 3D virtual images on eye movement control.

Oculomotor responses to perspective grid line drawings (1996)
Journal Article
Fulford, K., Findlay, J. M., & Neary, C. (1996). Oculomotor responses to perspective grid line drawings. Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, 36, 783

Purpose. Can disconjugate eye movements be triggered by pictorial depth cues? If they could, this would facilitate eye pointing to three-dimensional displays. Method. Eye movement responses were measured as subjects shifted their gaze from a central... Read More about Oculomotor responses to perspective grid line drawings.

Helmet slippage during visual tracking: The effect of voluntary head movements (1993)
Journal Article
Neary, C., Bate, I. J., Heller, L. F., & Williams, M. (1993). Helmet slippage during visual tracking: The effect of voluntary head movements. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, 64(7), 623-30

The influence of visual tracking on head movement and on the head/helmet system was investigated for two different helmets (a motorcycle helmet and a flying helmet) under static laboratory conditions. Subjects visually refixated between pairs of illu... Read More about Helmet slippage during visual tracking: The effect of voluntary head movements.

Some visual, optometric and perceptual effects of coloured glasses (1991)
Journal Article
Wilkins, A., & Neary, C. (1991). Some visual, optometric and perceptual effects of coloured glasses. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 11(2), 163-171. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1475-1313.1991.tb00216.x

We examined 20 individuals who had worn coloured glasses (Irlen filters) for a period of at least 3 months and who claimed to find them beneficial. Sixteen had a history of reading difficulties. The performance of a variety of visual tasks was compar... Read More about Some visual, optometric and perceptual effects of coloured glasses.

The effect of high frequency flicker on accommodation (1989)
Journal Article
Neary, C. (1989). The effect of high frequency flicker on accommodation. Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics, 9(4), 440-446. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1475-1313.1989.tb00949.x

Monocular accommodation was measured by a laser optometer while two subjects viewed a letter matrix target illuminated by steady or intermittent (300, 100, 50 and 25 Hz) light and presented at a number of optical distances (0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 and 4.5...

Effects of phosphor persistence on perception and the control of eye movements. (1989)
Journal Article
Wilkins, A. J., Neary, C., & Wilkins, A. J. (1989). Effects of phosphor persistence on perception and the control of eye movements. Perception, 18(2), 257-264. https://doi.org/10.1068/p180257

When a rapid eye movement (saccade) is made across material displayed on cathode ray tube monitors with short-persistence phosphors, various perceptual phenomena occur. The phenomena do not occur when the monitor has a long-persistence phosphor. Thes... Read More about Effects of phosphor persistence on perception and the control of eye movements..

Use of eye movement auditory biofeedback in the control of nystagmus (1982)
Journal Article
Ciuffreda, K. J., Goldrich, S. G., & Neary, C. (1982). Use of eye movement auditory biofeedback in the control of nystagmus. American journal of optometry and physiological optics, 59(5), 396-409

Eye movement auditory biofeedback was used in weekly training sessions to control nystagmus in five adult patients. Within the 1st hr of training, all patients were able to reduce nystagmus. Average maximum group reduction of nystagmus amplitude, pea... Read More about Use of eye movement auditory biofeedback in the control of nystagmus.
