posted in: Grants | 0

Together with collaborators from Royal Visio, an expertise centre for blind and partially sighted people in the Netherlands, the Laboratory of Experimental Ophthalmology has been awarded three grants. The grants are for, developing new ways to measure viewing behaviour in hemianopic observers (awarded by NOVUM), for developing a screeningstest for eye-movements and perception in Parkinson patients, and for a lesion overlap study in people with acquired brain damage (both awarded by VIVIS). The studies will help improve the diagnostic, screening and rehabilitation efforts for partially sighted people.
