Final Report - ORIGAMI (Optimal Regulation and Infrastructure for Ground, Air and Maritime Interfaces)
Project ID: 265600Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT
This is the final report of the EUROV1SION project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). This research program aimed to understand the dynamics of the structural and functional organisation of the primary visual cortex and the implications for amblyopia (lazy eye). This information is translated into new treatments of amblyopia based on stimulating plasticity of the visual system. The report notes that this project is of high scientific, clinical and economical value. Insight into neuronal interactions at the scale and resolution obtained as part of the project is essential for decoding information processed in the CNS. The report notes that novel training paradigms that improve treatment of amblyopia are of high economic value as 2-4% of the population is affected and training-based therapies are inexpensive. Identification of signalling pathways that restrict adult plasticity has an impact on disorders of the CNS whose treatments are limited by the rigidity of the underlying neuronal circuits, including plasticity based disorders and trauma of the CNS.
