Low Vision Support Group - "A Universal Low Cost Low Vision Aid."

Low Vision Support Group - "A Universal Low Cost Low Vision Aid."

Dr. Werblin will describe and demonstrate the use of a highly effective wearable visual aid designed to improve the visual performance of those suffering from macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and other degenerative visual diseases.   Using the device, the patient has access to 1) the real world, 2) the digital media world (Netflix, New York Times) and 3) The device can also be used for remote diagnosis: The patient at home can be evaluated over the internet by the clinician at the hospital.

Citizen Science, Basic & Applied Research, and STEM education

Abstract:

Exciting opportunities often come along with the creation of new technology.  The internet is no exception. In this talk, I will describe some new web portals that we have developed:  Faceblind.org for the recruitment and education of a special population,  TestMyBrain.org and manybrains.net for the conduct of research more broadly, and most recently lab.tellab.org for education.

Neurophysiology of Vergence Mediated Vestibular Responses

Neurophysiology of Vergence Mediated Vestibular Responses

Abstract:

Animals with binocular vision exhibit vergence eye position related changes in the gain of their vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) consistent with geometrical expectations. These changes are seen in darkness, occur at short latency, and are associated with neural activity within the vestibular nuclei. I will briefly review the geometry and then discuss the behavioral and neurophysiological evidence that supports vergence mediated vestibular responses.
