Welcome to The Laboratory for Visual Neuroplasticity at Massachusetts Eye & Ear and Schepens Eye Research Institute, in affiliation with Harvard Medical School. Our group focuses on the development of assistive technology for the visually impaired and uses a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging techniques to study changes that occur in the brain as a result of ocular and cerebral causes of blindness.
- Rethinking Visual Impairment
- Characterizing Visual Field Deficits in Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) Using Combined Diffusion Based Imaging and Functional Retinotopic Mapping: A Case Study
