> COLOUR VISION:	Fundamental Studies and Clinical Applications
> 
> 4-5 November 2005
>  
> City University, London.
> 
> COURSE / SYMPOSIUM 
> The two-day event is aimed at those who wish to understand the
> fundamentals of colour vision and the effects on chromatic sensitivity
> that result from changes in stimulus parameters and / or the
> properties of the eye. Emphasis will be placed on clinical
> applications and the need to evaluate how loss of chromatic
> sensitivity can affect visual performance in some work environments.
> 
> The course includes selected demonstrations on colour measurement and
> specification and laboratory practicals on the most common
> occupational colour vision tests and the latest techniques developed
> to diagnose colour deficiency and to investigate and quantify loss of
> chromatic sensitivity.
> 
> The second day symposium includes talks on the genetics of colour
> vision, modelling of chromatic discrimination, cerebral achromatopsia,
> studies of colour perception in context and fMRI. In addition to
> providing "hands on" experience on the latest colour measurement and
> colour vision assessment techniques, an important aim of the course /
> symposium is to explore how advances in genetics and our understanding
> of chromatic processes can benefit clinical applications. 
> 
> WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
> Ophthalmologists, medical and psychology students, optometrists,
> occupational health professionals, artists / painters/ dyers, vision
> scientists, industrial colour measurement & reproduction specialists 
> 
> SPEAKERS
> G B Arden, JL Barbur, S Grant, K Knoblauch, J Moreland, J Neitz, J
