Investigation of motion perception learning in healthy subjects, for application as a rehabilitative therapy for visual field defects following primary visual cortex damage

Abstract:

Perceptual learning is the ability to improve performance of a perceptual task, with repeated practice. The concept of perceptual learning in the adult visual system has been established for many years, however, the neural mechanisms which mediate it have proved complex to unravel. Improved understanding could be used to guide novel rehabilitative strategies for those with damage to the brain which a↵ects the primary visual cortex (V1) in the occipital lobe. Motion perception learning is t...
