Abstract:Diffuse luminance flicker induces an increase in retinal vessel diameter. This increase most probably reflects an increase in retinal blood flow previously evidenced in humans by the blue field simulation technique. The technique needs to be optimized in terms of flicker parameters, to determine whether flicker-evoked retinal diameter changes could represent a useful clinical measure of the capability of the retinal vascular system to vasodilate.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
