Professor Seidman receives grant for clinical research and data analysis from Johnson & Johnson

sdfProfessor Scott Seidman has received a grant for clinical research and data analysis from Johnson & Johnson for his research collaboration with Professor James Auavella of Opthalmology. The project is titled, "Assessment of eye strain using electromyography of orbicularis oculi muscle."

Following milestone review of the reanalysis of EMG data from orbicularis oculari muscle provided by Johnson and Johnson, investigators will design, and implement, and test a system to assess eyestrain as described in Nahar, et al. The system will have the highest likelihood for establishing a robust relationship between EMG activity and eyestrain resulting from inaccurate correction astigmatism. A protocol for using this system and a user interface supporting this protocol will also be developed. The system and protocol will be tested in 10 individuals recruited from the student population at the University of Rochester.
