Seeing with two eyes - a window into brain plasticity

07 July 2023 15:30 - 16:00 The Royal Society Free
Dr Betina Ip

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

Visual neuroscientist and Royal Society research fellow Dr Betina Ip (University of Oxford) will explain how our ability to see using two eyes provides a window into human brain plasticity. Normal binocular vision requires normal binocular experience in childhood. If this does not occur, a condition called 'lazy eye', or amblyopia develops that impacts the visual brain.

Dr Ip will talk about new research that combines virtual reality and neuroimaging, designed to understand the brain plasticity underlying gains in binocular vision in adulthood.
