It is well established that after vision loss, capabilities of the other sensory systems can be enhanced. However, particularly in animal models of vision loss, little has been done to examine how vision loss leads to alterations in the ‘blind brain’, and how these changes affect an animal's behavior. Here, related to spatial awareness and navigation, I will discuss our recent work describing changes in neuronal activity and animal behaviour in mice following vision loss.

This seminar will take place in-person and online (details in attached poster below)
