Attention Network May Play Role in Vision Restoration Resulting from Brain Damage

By Annamaria Cavaleri ‘22 Hemianopia is defined as a decreased vision or blindness in half of the visual field because of trauma or stroke. Although research on in this field is limited, neuroimaging evidence suggests that a person’s attention may play a role in restoring vision. Recent studies have shown that vision training has the ability to partially restore vision by improving the deficiency of … Continue reading Attention Network May Play Role in Vision Restoration Resulting from Brain Damage

Exploring Saccadic Eye Movement

By Fatin Chowdhury ‘19 The nuances of eye movements form an overlooked part of human vision. Dr. Grace Edwards at Istituto Italiano di Technologia in Italy examined the effect of peripheral information near a saccade target. Saccading is the completion of rapid eye movement by healthy human eyes while being fixated on differing spatial points. Edwards hypothesized that the neural interpretation of a postsaccadic visual … Continue reading Exploring Saccadic Eye Movement
