Institute of Information Systems at HES-SO in Valais and Foundation for the
Blind in Lausanne (Switzerland) are looking for 1 PhD student and 1
RA/postdoc (open rank) interested in links between (eye) health,
ophthalmology and neuroscience. Our project aims to asssess the potential
of virtual reality games in the rehabilitation of the most common pediatric
vision disorder - amblyopia ("lazy eye"). The recovery potential is
assessed not only at the level of the usual, basic vision skills like
visual acuity or 3D vision, but also at the level of functional "visual"
skills, such as age-appropriate literacy skills. The project likewise aims
to establish the role therein of selective attention systems (visual,
multisensory), as studied with rigorous experimental paradigms combined
with the advantages of EEG and electrical neuroimaging analyses (eg. Murray
et al. 2008 BTOP; Tivadar & Murray 2018 ORM   tinyurl.com/y8uxonnf ). The
project is well-suited for students interested in vision, visual and
multisensory perpcetion, attention, VR, games, or pediatric brain
