A three-year international research project is underway to explore the neurobiological processes that cause blurred vision.
The project will be launched in early 2022 under the leadership of the Visual Systems Neurobiology Group of the Etvös Loránd Research Network Natural Sciences Research Center (ELKH TTK). Researchers are using state-of-the-art technology to explore which brain systems cause one of the most common eye diseases, ELKH TTK told MTI on Wednesday.
According to the communication, the research project will be funded by the European Union. As described in Communication, blurred vision is the most common cause of monocular blindness. Only a small group of patients receive timely treatment, however, even the best treatment can alleviate lifelong vision loss.
The Transylvanian Institute of Neuroscience at Cluj-Napoca, the Catholic University of Louvain (Catholic University of Louvain), the most important microelectronics research center in Europe, and the Flemish Neuro-Electronic Research Institute In collaboration with the Department of Ophthalmology at Semmelweis University, they are working together to develop a new method for determining the role and role of brain networks in maintaining blurred vision in experimental model species and in patients diagnosed with blurred vision.
The European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs) program supports research worth 1. 1.2 million (converted to 442.8 million forints).
