Visual plasticity: Blindsight bridges anatomy and function in the visual system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Some people who are blind due to damage to their primary visual cortex, V1, can discriminate stimuli presented within their blind visual field. This residual function has been recently linked to a pathway that bypasses V1, and connects the thalamic lateral geniculate nucleus directly with the extrastriate cortical area MT.
