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.
The effects of visual deprivation
on functional and structural organization of the human brain.
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.
We conclude that compensatory auditory mechanisms following visual deprivation
must extend beyond the spatial domain.
An assessment of visual deprivation
effects by the use of operant techniques.

and proprioceptive change on postural sway in healthy adults.
