Now we understand vision better because of mapped neural circuits found in the eye

The function of a special group of nerve cells which are found in the eye and which sense visual movement have been discovered by researchers from Aarhus University. A completely new understanding of how conscious sensory impressions occur in the brain has been acquired through the study. The development of targeted and specific forms of treatment in the future for diseases which impact the nervous system and its sensory apparatus, such as dementia and schizophrenia, needs this kind of insight.

UCSB researchers show that category learning can be influenced by where an object is in our field of vision

Classroom study measures vision and NAPLAN achievement

QUT researchers have investigated how vision can affect a child’s ongoing learning, with results showing 30 per cent of Year 3 students tested had uncorrected eye problems that could affect their NAPLAN performances. Importantly, the children referred for...
