Understanding Visual Field Loss

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

 Eli Peli, Harvard Medical School

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

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 >

From paws to hands: The evolution of the forelimb and cortical areas involved in complex hand use

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | November 20 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Leah Krubitzer, UC Davis

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Forelimb morphology and use in mammals is extraordinarily diverse. Evolution has produced wings, flippers, hooves, paws and hands which are specialized for a variety of behaviors such as flying, swimming and grasping to name a few. While there is a wealth of data in human and non-human primates on the role of motor cortex and posterior parietal cortical areas in reaching and grasping with the...   More >
