Improving Abnormal Spatial Vision in Adults with Amblyopia

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter deals with the visual processing of adults with amblyopia. Plasticity is deemed to exist in the process and can be used to improve the vision of such patients. Through perceptual learning, particularly repetitive practice of target detection, lateral interactions between cortical neurons can be normalized, and improved visual functions can be achieved.
