  • Next message: Frank Tong: "VisionScienceList: Post-doc in Cognitive Neuroscience of Visual Perception, Princeton University"

    Where:
        Lions Vision Center
        Wilmer Eye Insititue at Johns Hopkins
        Baltimore, MD

    When:
        Starting before 12/31/2001, for one or two years

    Funding; citizenship:
        NEI-funded, NIH salary norms; US citizenship or permanent
        residency required

    Who:
        Enthusiastic Ph.D. (biomedical engineering, psychophysics,
        electrophysiology, or similar)

    Project description:
        Research fellowship in vision science with a strong emphasis on
        vision restoration to the blind. Work will include simulation work
        in normally-sighted and low vision subjects as well as
        psychophysical testing of intraocular prosthesis wearers.

    Significance:
        Intraocular visual prostheses are now where the cochlear
        prosthesis was 20 years ago: on the eve of the first functional
        electrode implantations. Combining initial visual function tests
        from implant recipients with task performance by simulated
        prosthesis wearers, the postdoc can expect to make a significant
        contribution to the future of prosthetic sight
