https://doi.org/10.1167/iovs.62.2.23
Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science; Wang X, Reynaud A et. al.

Feb 18th, 2021 - Amblyopes suffer a defect in temporal processing, presumably because of a neural delay in their visual processing. By measuring flash-lag effect (FLE), we investigate whether the amblyopic visual system could compensate for the intrinsic neural de...
