Blurring-Speed Distribution in a Kindergarten Population: The Queens Study
To determine the statistical Modes I and II blurring-speed distributions as a function of word and elephant visual gestalts—and thus attempt to substantiate the bimodal distribution obtained in the Staten Island study. Inasmuch as an elephant (Mode I and II) gestalt was added to a modified Staten Island word gestalt, there resulted four blurring speed determinations per patient (word Mode I, word Mode II, elephant Mode I and elephant Mode II).
To determine Mode III positive as a function of low blurring speeds and as a function of high or “normal” blurring speeds—and thus attempt to substantiate the prior Staten Island correlation of Mode III positive with low blurring speeds.
To determine a statistical low blurring-speed incidence of dyslexia, if possible.
To evaluate Modes I, II, and III as a function of sex.
To evaluate Modes I, II, and III as a function of handedness.
