An Introduction to Cerebral Visual Impairment
Professor Gordon Dutton

Presented on Friday, 11th September, 2015


Professor Gordon Dutton, editor and co-author of the new book 'Vision and the Brain' by AFB Press, introduces us to cerebral visual impairment. The webinar explores:

  • What is vision?
  • How does the brain see?
  • What is it that limits vision if the brain is damaged?
  • Why is it essential to make sure that everything that is presented can be perceived and understood?

Professor Dutton also took some time to answer some questions which were sent in advance of the Webinar
