In patients with central visual field scotomata a large part of visual cortex is not adequately stimulated. Over time this lack of input could lead to a reduction of gray matter in the affected cortical areas. We used Voxel Based Morphometry to investigate structural brain changes in patients with central scotomata due to hereditary retinal dystrophies and(More)
Patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are reliant on their peripheral visual field. Oculomotor training can help them to find the best area on intact peripheral retina and to efficiently stabilize eccentric fixation. In this study, nine patients with AMD were trained over a period of 6 months using oculomotor training protocols to improve(More)
In patients with central visual field scotomata a large part of visual cortex is not adequately stimulated. We investigated evidence for possible upregulation in cortical responses in 22 patients (8 females, 14 males; mean age 41.5 years, range 12-65 years) with central visual field loss due to hereditary retinal dystrophies (Stargardt's disease, other(More)
