Content and objectives of the research work
Poor treatment of amblyopia can have serious visual, cognitive and emotional consequences for patients both the short and long term. This project will first allow us to identify the sensory, cognitive and cortical deficits of amblyopia through transdisciplinary and innovative experimental protocol. In a second step, we will test the effectiveness of therapeutic video games, more particularly, virtual reality as an amblyopia treatment. Finally, this project will allow us to establish the respective importance of sensory and cognitive processes in the visual rehabilitation of amblyopia. This project is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration bringing together biomedical engineering, mathematical modeling, neuroscience and ophthalmology. This singular approach to vision disorders is innovative both on a fundamental dimension as well as on an applied dimension.
