Institute of Information Systems at HES-SO in Valais is looking for 1 PhD
student interested in (eye) health and neuroscience, and modelling
relationships between sensory/ perceptual - brain - cognitive processes.
Our project aims to assess the potential of virtual reality games in the
rehabilitation of the most common pediatric vision disorder - amblyopia
("lazy eye"). The recovery potential is assessed at the level of both the
usual, basic vision skills (visual acuity or 3D vision) and functional
"visual" skills, like age-appropriate literacy skills. The project likewise
aims to establish the role therein of different selective attention systems
(visual, multisensory), as studied with rigorous experimental paradigms
combined with the advantages of EEG and multi-variate EEG/ERP analyses (eg.
Murray et al. 2008 BTOP; Tivadar & Murray 2018 ORM tinyurl.com/y8uxonnf
). The project is well-suited for students interested in modelling
multi-modal clinical and/or pediatric data and change in the areas of
medicine, neuroscience and/or cognition.
