Can new genetic methods be used to cure color blindness? In this paper in the Journal of Vision, Eli Brenner and Frans Cornelissen used simulations to determine whether replacing cone pigments suffices to cure colour blindness. Find the article [here].
Are perceptual decision making and action based on the same or on different neural representations? In this study in iPerception, Funda Yildirim and Frans Cornelissen use a simple and straightforward localization task to show that the neural representations are the same, thereby … Continued
Do we need to routinely examine the brains of patients with eye diseases? In this paper in Acta Opthalmologica, Doety Prins and colleagues review previous MRI studies that examined patients with eye diseases, to find that a large range of … Continued
Can your eyes “see” things that you cannot? In this study in the Journal of Vision, Barbara Nordhjem and colleagues use the phenomenon of “emergence” to study eye movements during object recognition. They find, amongst other things, that the eyes were … Continued
Within the European Glaucoma Research and Training program (http://www.egret-program.eu/), 10 PhD students will receive training to become the next generation of clinical vision- and neuroscientists, specialized in studying neurodegenerative diseases and glaucoma in particular. Our international team includes academic, health … Continued
In this study in the Journal of Vision, Funda Yildirim and colleagues used eye movements show for the first that crowding similarly affects the accuracy of peripheral recognition and saccadic target localization, thereby confirming earlier model predictions that suggested that … Continued
The European Marie-Curie training network NextGenVis (“Training the Next Generation of European Visual Neuroscientists”) is a collaboration between 10 European labs and companies in the field of visual and computational neuroscience. We offer 15 (3 year) full-time PhD positions. An … Continued
