Neurological Vision Loss Panel

We are looking for research participants for studies into neurological vision loss to help us further understand the relationship between vision, the brain and subsequent behaviour.

We recruit participants with any form of vision loss as well as healthy, normally-sighted individuals to act as comparisons with those who have vision loss. If you are aged above 18, you are eligible to sign up - before you do so, please read the information sheet.

Our research

Although vision loss is our main research area, our studies may also include measures of memory, perception and attention. We also support the investigation of brain structure and function resulting from vision loss.

Some studies may use neuroimaging to understand how the brain supports different types of cognitive processes (eg memory, language and attention). The techniques we will use to address these questions are structural imaging and fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging).

The database

The database allows us to identify potential research participants for studies of neurological vision loss. Although vision loss is our main research area, our studies may also include measures of memory, perception and attention. The database will also support the investigation of brain structure and function resulting from vision loss.

Download our information sheet for more detail about the database.

Take part

Taking part in these studies will make an important contribution to our understanding of the relationship between vision, the brain and subsequent behaviour, and how these relationships can be affected by brain damage. Many discoveries about how the brain works have been derived from studying individuals with neurological vision loss.
