Center for Visual Science’s 29th Symposium - Engineering the Eye IV: Restoring Vision
Aug 22, 2014 - Aug 24, 2014

The 29th Symposium of the Center for Visual Science will bring vision restoration researchers together with low vision specialists who study the importance for daily living of such visual capabilities as: foveal versus peripheral vision, motion versus form perception, and high luminance cone versus low luminance rod mediated vision.  It will examine vision restoration in light of the variety of disorders that damage vision and the type of information that partially or totally blind patients need to function normally. It will also consider the role played by central visual pathways in restoring vision, limitations to recovery resulting from alteration of early visual development, and the importance of cortical plasticity in refinement of visual perception as patients adapt to their visual prosthesis. The conference will also provide an opportunity for students and post-docs to present their work in poster sessions, and will make competitive travel fellowships available to the best of the students and post-docs who wish to attend and present their work.
