Development of the Effectiveness of Rehabilitation Tools for Neurovisual Disorders in Patients With Posterior Cortical Atrophy

2019-08-07 16:10:30 | BioPortfolio


Posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) is manifested by neuro-visual disorders that alter the spatial location of objects, their manipulation and/or recognition. Its etiology is most often neurodegenerative, with a major impact on the autonomy and mood of patients and their families. Few studies have focused on non-medication management of these disorders.

The present study thus has a double objective: the development of a complete tool to work on the recognition, localization and/or manipulation of objects; and the evaluation of the effectiveness of this type of management.

Active visuomotor interactions with virtual objects on touchscreens adhere to Weber's law.

Recent findings suggest that the functional separation between vision-for-action and vision-for-perception does not generalize to situations in which two-dimensional (2D), virtual objects, are used as...

Quantifying how much attention rodents allocate to motivationally-salient objects with a novel object preference test.

The allocation of attention can be modulated by the emotional value of a stimulus. In order to understand the biasing influence of emotion on attention allocation further, we require an animal test of...

On Why Objects Appear Smaller in the Visual Periphery.

An object appears smaller in the periphery than in the center of the visual field. In two experiments ( = 24), we demonstrated that visuospatial attention contributes substantially to this perceptual ...

Involuntary mental rotation and visuospatial imagery from external control.

The Reflexive Imagery Task (RIT) was developed to investigate the entry into consciousness of involuntary imagery. Subjects are presented with objects and instructed to not think of the names of the o...

3D object recognition through processing of 2D holograms.

Correlation of two-dimensional digitally recorded holograms is introduced as a novel approach for object recognition without the need for quantitative assessment of the retrieved complex field, based ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Individuals' personal concept of their bodies as objects in and bound by space, independently and apart from all other objects.

An enduring, learned predisposition to behave in a consistent way toward a given class of objects, or a persistent mental and/or neural state of readiness to react to a certain class of objects, not as they are but as they are conceived to be.

Inanimate objects that become enclosed in the eye.

Instruments used to observe distant objects.

Objects that produce a magnetic field.
