LVCOL: What can neuroimaging tell us about cerebral visual impairment

Course Overview

LIVE Webinar Wednesday 12 October 2022: 5 – 6pm

CPD Accreditation:

HPCSA: 1 Clinical CEU, Level 1
OASA (Ocularist Association of South Africa): Universal – 1 (one) point
 

Course Content:

In this webinar, we will review some overarching evidence-based principals of cerebral (cortical) visual impairment (CVI), including a discussion of recent research into characterizing the visual behaviours and associated neuroimaging changes seen in individuals with CVIs. Particular emphasis will be on dorsal and ventral visual functions and how these potentially relate to changes in the brain structure and function.

Description

The Low Vision Centre of Learning is thrilled to welcome Dr. Corinna Bauer.

Dr. Corinna Bauer is an assistant investigator at Massachusestts Eye and Ear and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. Her research focuses on understanding how the visual dysfunctions observed in cerebral visual impairments (CVIs) relate to brain structure and function. Following a master’s in bioimaging, she completed her doctoral studies in neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Lotfi Merabet studying the changes in neural networks associated with congenital ocular vision loss. Dr. Bauer secured a faculty position at Harvard Medical School in 2015. Her lab applies advanced MRI techniques to study the long-term neurodevelopmental consequences of early brain injury, specifically targeting white matter, neural networks, and the thalamus. Corinna’s research also investigates the relationship between brain structure and function with performance on assessments of higher-order visual processing.
