Visual Rehabilitation After Occipital StrokeResearch 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
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester
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
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
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
