Description

Recent results from clinical trials and studies using animal models have challenged the traditional view that amblyopia is untreatable in adulthood due to insufficient cortical plasticity. This course will review several of the biological and behavioral manipulations that have demonstrated restoration of neural plasticity in the human brain that may eventually be incorporated into safe and feasible amblyopia treatment.

Objectives

Course Objectives
A. To present recent animal research specific to visual recovery in adults from amblyopia induced in the “sensitive period” (formerly known as “critical”).
1. Pharmacotherapy
2. Environmental manipulation / enrichment
B. To present recent human research on Perceptual Learning (vision)
1. Normal vision
