Visual Crowding

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Project Narrative This project aims to determine the neural basis of visual crowding, a perceptual phenomenon that limits visual performance in complex visual displays (e.g. reading the page of a book) and strongly influences the quality of life of individuals with compromised foveal vision (e.g. those afflicted with amblyopia or macular degeneration) or dyslexia. By studying the neural mechanisms of crowding, we will be better able to develop therapeutic approaches to reduce its effects. More generally, by furthering our understanding of neural mechanisms of vision, we will be better placed to develop artificial vision systems (i.e. visual prosthetics) and to facilitate recovery of vision after injury (e.g. stroke).
