Centre for Brain Research seminar: Novel approaches to sensory rehabilitation: examples from amblyopia and tinnitus Event as iCalendar

30 May 2013

10 - 11am

Venue: Clinical Education Centre, Level 5, Auckland City Hospital

Amblyopia is a disorder of vision and tinnitus is a disorder of audition, however both are related to anomalous processing of sensory information within the brain. Therefore interventions designed to enhance brain plasticity may have therapeutic potential for both amblyopia and tinnitus.

In this seminar the application of interventions such as non-invasive brain stimulation and modified video games to amblyopia and tinnitus will be discussed and the potential for future collaborative work within the CBR in the area of sensory rehabilitation will be emphasized.

Presented by: Dr Ben Thompson and Dr Grant Searchfield
