Clinical experience from humans deprived of vision at an early age indicates that recovery of vision is often rudimentary after late correction of the abnormalities in the eyes. Binocular deprivation in cats does not change the function of the visual cortex equally much as does monocular deprivation. Therefore, the behavioural blindness observed after binocular deprivation is probably caused by changes central to area 17. We studied four monkeys deprived of vision by binocular lid closure from… CONTINUE READING
