Research Description

Dennis Levi is a professor of Optometry and Vision Science, and a professor of Neuroscience.  The research focus of the Levi Lab is on recovery of visual function in humans with amblyopia beyond the critical period.  Their research, using perceptual learning and videogame play suggests that substantial neural plasticity may exist in the visual system of adults with amblyopia. Their long-range objectives are to understand the mechanisms that limit spatial vision in humans with amblyopia, with the ultimate goal of developing new approaches aimed at more effective treatment.
