Understanding Visual Field Loss

Seminar: Oxyopia Seminar | November 18 | 11:10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 489 Minor Hall

Could we develop more effective field expansion devices if we better understood the nature and impact of field loss? No proof of that, but I’d like to think so. Simulations have been a major tool in trying to understand the nature and impact of the loss. Most simulations of field loss found in textbooks, websites, and scientific papers are wrong; they do not represent what patients perceive. I’ll...   More >

Linking scalp ERPs to computational models of language and vision with multivariate pattern analysis

Multivariate pattern analysis (MVPA) methods have become widespread in fMRI research, because they allow researchers to use the pattern of activation within a brain region to draw conclusions about the information being represented in that region. This approach is limited by the poor temporal...   More >
