Amblyopia: The Thalamus Is a No-Go Area for Visual Acuity

Research output: Contribution to JournalShort surveyAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

When one eye does not function well during development, the visual cortex becomes less responsive to it and visual acuity declines. New research suggests that reduced response strength and deteriorating acuity occur in separate circuits. When one eye does not function well during development, the visual cortex becomes less responsive to it and visual acuity declines. New research suggests that reduced response strength and deteriorating acuity occur in separate circuits.
