College of Optometry 265 the anatomical, kinematic, physiological, cybernetic, and pathophysiological properties of ocular motility. (36-0-3) CVR 8720—Analysis and Interpretation of Eye Movements II This course is the continuation of CVR 8710. It covers more in-depth reading on saccadic, pursuit, vestibular, optokinetic, vergence, and accommodative movements and addresses the anatomical, kinematic, physiological, cybernetic, and pathophysiological properties of ocular motility. The students are also expected to learn process eye movement data with R or Matlab. (36-0-3) CVR 8791—Independent Study I in Ocular Motility Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., identifying the neural deficits associated with ocular motility abnormality). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) CVR 8792—Independent Study II in Ocular Motility Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., identifying the neural deficits associated with ocular motility abnormality). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) CVR 8793—Independent Study III in Ocular Motility Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., identifying the neural deficits associated with ocular motility abnormality). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) CVR 8794—Independent Study IV in Ocular Motility Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., identifying the neural deficits associated with ocular motility abnormality). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) Disease Courses CVR 8810—Disease Assessment This course focuses on selected topics of ocular, neuro-ocular, and systemic diseases that have undergone dramatic changes secondary to advances in both clinical research and technology. Large, controlled, clinical studies that have led to significant changes in both the diagnostic and management strategies of some common conditions, along with controversies in treatments, will be studied. In addition to weekly readings and discussions, students will present the latest advances and controversies in a subject related to their clinical research topic or clinical interest. (36-0-3) CVR 8820—Advanced Course in Disease This course focuses on the topics of glaucoma, in particular, areas of advances in both the diagnosis and management of glaucoma patients, selected additional disorders involving the optic nerve, and macular disorders. Use of evidencebased studies in the management of the disorders covered is stressed. In addition to weekly readings and case studies, each student will prepare a paper reviewing the latest advances and controversies in a selected glaucoma, optic nerve, or macular disorder topic. (36-0-3) CVR 8830—Concepts in Ocular Disease This course prepares students to evaluate the mechanisms of a select few ocular diseases from a scientific viewpoint. Students will learn to identify issues requiring additional investigation and will design research that efficiently and effectively addresses those issues. The course consists of instructor-led, online discussions and critiques of independent research projects. Topics might include new anatomical research, immunology (e.g., cytokines and complement) and immune privilege (both in the anterior and posterior segment), microbial infections (e.g., Pseudomonas), and any topics of interest to students. Information from previous courses will also be part of the discussions. (36-0-3) CVR 8840—Anatomical Basis for the Ocular Diseases This course reviews basic concepts in normal and pathological ocular anatomy, physiology, immunology, and signal transduction inside the cell. Students will read comprehensive review papers covering the diseases that meet their interests. Students will also have discussions on the new frontiers on certain ocular diseases. In addition to weekly readings and discussions, each student will present the latest advances and controversies in a subject that could be potentially developed into a research project. (36-0-3) CVR 8891—Independent Study I in Diseases During this course, the student will develop a selected topic, approved by the student’s adviser, for clinical research or as an extensive literature review suitable for publication. A timetable of goals will be developed, and weekly conferences will be
