Work is underway on a three-year international research project to explore the neurobiological processes that cause blurred vision.
The project will begin in early 2022 under the leadership of the Visual Systems Neurobiology Group of the Natural Sciences Research Center of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network (ELKH TTK). The goal is for researchers to use the latest technology to explore the brain mechanisms that can cause one of the most common eye diseases, ELKH TTK told MTI on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the research project will be funded by the European Union. As described in the communication, blurred vision is the most common cause of monocular blindness. Only a small percentage of patients receive treatment on time, however, even the best treatment can only alleviate lifelong vision loss.
The project includes the Transylvanian Institute of Neuroscience in Cluj-Napoca, the Catholic University of Leuven (Catholic University of Leuven) and the most important center for microelectronics research in Europe, and the Flemish research groups at the NeuroE (Universitetet i Oslo) research groups are working together to develop a new method to locate The role of brain networks in maintaining blurred vision in experimental models and in patients with blurred vision in collaboration with the Department of Ophthalmology at Semmelweis University.
The research is supported by the European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs) program for 1.2 million euros (transferred to 442.8 million forints).
