visual deprivation

deprivation, visual

The condition produced by a loss of form vision. It may occur as a result of an anomaly within the eye (e.g. opacification of the cornea), or it can be artificially induced (e.g. by placing a transparent plastic occluder in front of the eye, as used in myopia research with animals).

As mentioned earlier, in a comparison of postural sway among Judo wrestlers, dancers, and individuals who do not participate in strenuous physical activities, Perrin and colleagues (6) also observed that ballet dancers were not able to maintain postural control with visual deprivation, corroborating our findings.
Visually significant conditions like monocular or binocular visual deprivation, anisometropia, strabismus or abnormal visual environment during this period results in significant electrophysiological and anatomic abnormalities in striate cortex and in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN).
Recent studies [16, 17] supported the role of visual deprivation as a potential driver in using alternative sensory strategies to control dynamic equilibrium and stabilize gait.
Acuity-Independet effects of visual deprivation on human visual cortex.
The main goal of MADVIS is therefore to make a breakthrough on two fronts: (1) understanding how visual deprivation at different sensitive periods in development affects the functional organization and nectivity of the occipital cortex; and (2) use the fundamental knowledge derived from (1) to test and predict the outcome of sight restoration.
8) On the other hand, similar levels of visual deprivation do not impair recognition of non-face objects such as houses or even animal faces.

Any visual deprivation from a non-healing corneal epithelial defect or from subepithelial scarring in children can also lead to amblyopia.
They found that once the brain is triggered to reorganize its neural networks in wakefulness (by visual deprivation, for instance), intra- and intercellular communication pathways engage, setting a series of enzymes into action within the reorganizing neurons during sleep.
