How do we see? What happens when we can’t see? What treatments can we offer to help people who cannot see, now and in future?
What we see does not just depend on our eyes, but how our brains process and interpret visual information. Complicated networks of nerves linking our eyes with our brain make sense of light, colour, and movement in the world around us, and it is these networks that are responsible for “tricking our brains” into seeing visual illusions.
In this talk, I will be addressing the questions above and how our eyes are, in fact, “cleverer” than we think!
