Researchers have developed a new instrument called the TrueField to accurately measure the pupil responses of patients with multiple sclerosis.
AsianScientist (Dec. 12, 2013) – As you step outdoors into the bright sunshine, your pupils automatically contract. Scientists from the Australian Center of Excellence in Vision Science (ACEVS) based at The Australian National University (ANU) are making use of how this ‘pupil reflex’ is connected to the brain as a potential new way of testing the severity of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Dr. Eman Ali and her ACEVS colleagues have used an instrument they are developing to accurately measure the pupil responses of MS patients and have found that the pupils of MS sufferers respond appreciably slower.
