Vision & the Brain: Neurolog

Students will learn about the neuroanatomy associated with visual processing, brain development int he context of vision, as well as understand how and where various aspects of functional vision are processed in the brain and how early developmental brain damage may impact these processes. Specifically, concepts including motion processing, visual attention, object and face processing, visuomotor integration, and agnosias will be covered. Students will also learn about the principles that govern neuroplasticity and vulnerability; learn what makes a good study and a scientifically valid and reliable assessment; and also understand why a common language between educators, clinicians, and parents is imperative for serving children with CVI.
