    • Attentional Factors Underlying Binocular Vision Loss in Amblyopia 

      Chow, Amy (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-13)
      Amblyopia is a neurodevelopmental disorder of vision that results from abnormal visual experience during early development. In addition to significant vision loss in one eye, individuals with amblyopia experience binocular ...
    • Binocular vision and fixational eye movements 

      Nallour Raveendran, Rajkumar (University of Waterloo, 2017-07-19)
      Introduction In observers with amblyopia, abnormal patterns of amblyopic eye (AME) fixational eye movements (FEM) have been associated with monocular (reduced amblyopic eye visual acuity) and binocular sensory deficits ...
    • Investigating the Effect of Mild TBI on the Global Processing of Form and Motion 

      Alnawmasi, Mohammed (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-10)
      Purpose: Individuals with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) often experience a range of visual symptoms. The cortical processing of visual information involves two parallel streams; the ventral stream (form perception) and ...
    • Neural modulation of the human visual cortex 

      Abuleil, Dania (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-30)
      Neuroplasticity is a phenomenon that refers to the brain’s ability to reorganize, strengthen, and form neural connections, a process that becomes increasingly more difficult with age. Gamma amino-butyric acid (GABA), the ...
    • Non-invasive brain stimulation of the primary visual cortex of healthy adults and individuals with amblyopia 

      DONKOR, RICHARD (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-03)
      Introduction: Amblyopia is a neurological condition that affects the visual cortex and causes visual deficits, typically in one eye. Recovery from amblyopia requires significant visual cortex neuroplasticity to allow for ...
    • Stereocoherence thresholds as a measure of global stereopsis 

      Unnisa Begum, Viquar (University of Waterloo, 2017-06-14)
      Purpose: The purpose of this study was to develop a robust and reliable clinical test of stereopsis that is complementary to the conventional disparity threshold tests. Methods: Random dot stereograms containing ...
    • Stimulus characteristics of a novel air-based multiple stimulus aesthesiometer 

      Mungalsingh, Melanie (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-05)
      Purpose: To (1) develop a novel air-based aesthesiometer capable of producing and applying multiple stimuli separated either by time or space; (2) identify the stimulus airflow characteristics and confirm the consistency ...
    • Understanding the Mechanisms Underlying Brain Plasticity in Adult Humans 

      Abuleil, Dania (University of Waterloo, 2017-09-22)
      Purpose: The human brain changes signi cantly with age. The plasticity of the visual cortex is thought to decrease into adulthood while childrens' brains are highly plastic. This change in plasticity is thought to be due, ...
