4th International Symposium "Low Vision and the Brain

Starts:  Nov 24, 2017 9:00 AM (CET)
Ends:  Nov 26, 2017 5:00 PM (CET)
“4r-vision” is an international and multidisciplinary conference that will highlight diagnostic and treatment approaches that aim to modulate nervous system structure and function though rescue, regeneration, restoration and rehabilitation. This conference will showcase recent paradigm shifts in basic science, clinical care, and industry innovations, including drugs and devices that can reduce cell death, stem cells and regeneration, behavioural training and electrical devices (prosthesis and non-invasive brain stimulation) that restore some vision and/or strengthen residual visual capacities through brain plasticity. In addition, psychological topics will be discussed, such as the role of stress and coping difficulties in low vision, substitution and compensation.
