Grouping and Perception in Different Types of Amblyopia

This project was to measure the neural correlates of grouping and perception in different types of amblyopia. We found that strabismus generates significant abnormalities at both early and later stages of cortical processing and, importantly, that these abnormalities are independent of visual-acuity deficits. The nonamblyopic eyes of anisometropic amblyopes, by contrast, are normal, suggesting that these two forms of visual deprivation are differentiated very early in visual cortex.
