Congratulations to Kimberly Meier, who received a one-year, $70,000 award from the Knights Templar Eye Foundation.
The award begins July 1st and is titled "Neural Bases of Binocular Contrast Integration in Children with Amblyopia."
This project will use a brain imaging technique to measure how signals from the two eyes are combined within visual areas of the brain in children who have been treated for amblyopia ("lazy eye"). By comparing what a child sees to how their brain responds, this project will link specific vision problems to different aspects of the brain. The long-term goal is to predict the best treatment for a child based on specific vision problems
