Training-dependent improvement of visual behavior after postgeniculate damage of the visual system was studied in 10 patients. The patients, all with computer-tomographically proven damage and a lesion chronicity of 8 weeks to 4.7 years, were subjected to a special exploration training of at least 10 sessions or 1100 trials. Before and after training, extensive perimetric tests were performed to determine possible training-related visual changes. It was found that the training program improved… CONTINUE READING
