Visual Rehabilitation After Occipital Stroke

Research Question:
This research aims to examine changes in plastic potential of the visual system with time from stroke affecting primary visual cortex.

Basic Study Information

We will measure structural and mechanistic aspects of progressive degeneration along the early visual pathways, correlating them with changes in visual performance, and in responsiveness to visual restoration training. This project will advance both scientific knowledge, as well as technical capability and clinical practices for restoring vision and quality of life for people suffering from cortical blindness.

Additional Study Details

Study Details:
If you are eligible for the study, procedures will include: - 3 in-person research lab evaluations, lasting 3- to 4-days in duration, located at the Flaum Eye Institute of the University of Rochester. - Completing in-home daily visual training exercises between in-person research visits. For the home training task: You will participate in two distinct sessions of at-home visual training. Training Task 1 will take place from 0- and up to 6-months after the date of your stroke. Training Task 2 will start at 6-months after your date of stroke, and will continue until 12- or 13-months post-stroke.

Number of Visits:  2 to 5
Parking:  Free
